Rated 5 out of 5 by Swedishfiddle Crisp, easy care, and exactly what I wanted!
I've been searching for a crisp, smooth sheet like I remember from years ago. I wanted quality, a crisp and cool feel, pretty color selection, and big enough to comfortably fit my bed--no skimping on material. I've found it all in these sheets!
My husband and I love these sheets in the winter and summer. They're perfect! I'm going to order another set just to have so I'm covered in case LL Bean decides to discontinue.
(Something I would like, however-- my bed is a CA KING and even though this will fit (the contour is a bit awkward) it would be better in our true needed size. I realize the market for CA King isn't huge, so I'll make do.)
Thank you for stocking them, even if the price is a bit higher.
These sheets are heartily and enthusiastically recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AussieFanofLLBean Excellent quality
I am really happy with these sheets, they are perfect for the hot weather especially, crisp and cool. In view of the fact that they are pure cotton, they do not crease badly at all. The fitted sheet is generously sized and easily fits my queen size mattress plus topper.

Rated 5 out of 5 "Moss green" should be called "greenish beige"
It's not at all the pretty green I thought I saw on the website. I'm sure I'll love these sheets when I exchange them for another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hopethisworks Great sheets
Received a complete set about a week ago. Washed them before using. Thoroughly pleased. Nice crisp feel, flat sheet is long enough for very generous fold over the blanket and do not wrinkle excessively. The fitted sheet is very generous and although I would like it to fit more snuggly, I do realize there are so many depths of mattresses. Mfr has to please all tastes. Have been stung a few times buying sheet sets from discount stores and decided to go for these sheets. More pricy that I would like but satisfied so far. If they do not measure up in the long run am hoping that Bean will replace.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lookingforclassics Wrinkle too badly
I bought these sheets based on the Consumer Reports review, and I love the feel of them. I, however, have experienced what several other reviewers have. The top hem edge of the flat sheet becomes very wrinkled. I tried ironing just the hem, but it didn't help. I've been married 50 years and have never experienced this with sheets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LSLmom Comfortable but not durable
I've had these sheets about 2 years. We find them to be very comfortable. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the top edge of the sheets and edge of the pillowcases. As another reviewer mentioned, they have become creased,almost pleated, even with ironing. They are beginning to fray along the creases. I don't know when the creased edges started. By the time I noticed it, ironing did not help. Besides, ironing sheets is not something I have time to do. We like the feel of the sheets but unfortuantely they did not prove to be durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CottonWearer Wonderful Smoothness
I bought this product in the full size with the matching fitted sheet and pillow cases in the Vintage Green color. I love them all! The color was well represented online and goes well with the rest of my bedding ensemble on that bed. I love the extra length of this flat sheet! There is plenty to tuck in at the foot so it won't come loose, and yet it still leaves an extra amount at the head to fold over the rest of the blankets for their protection from face oils. The best part, though, is that the fabric is so wonderfully smooth that cat hair is easily removed from it by rubbing lightly and quickly with a small rubber cat brush to collect it in a little pile that is then easily picked up with my fingers and carried away. My cat has taken to sleeping with me in the last year, but I am finicky about cat hair on things, so this is a great find for me. I also love the smoothness so that my nightgown doesn't get stuck on the sheet's surface when I turn over, so that I'm wrapped like a mummy when I wake up. They wash up wonderfully, dry quickly, and the few wrinkles that are retained don't bother me in the least. The color has not faded either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kcgauss Feels like polyester
Although the sheet is well made with a generous cut, the fabric itself does not feel like cotton. It feels more like polyester -- slick rather than crisp, I'll just keep patching my vintage Wamsutta percale sheets as I have given hope of ever replacing them with like quality. I wonder if the difference is in the type of cotton used? My guess is (and this is just a guess) that the older sheets were made from Upland cotton rather than softer Pima or Egyptian cottons. Would love to know for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Howie42 Not Happy
I've ordered pima cotton t-shirts and polos and have been happy with those purchases. I received the bed sheet and it's literally one sheet. I thought I was ordering a fitted sheet and piilow cases based upon the picture but received one sheet. I've now used the sheet for a week, and for the price it's not different then the jersey sheets I've purchased for considerably cheaper locally.

Rated 1 out of 5 by beachgirl70 colors off
I ordered sheet sets in Lake Blue and Light Blue for my beach home where I have frequent guests. The Lake color was a light blue that wasn't even a pretty shade and the Light Blue looks like a dingy grey. My daughter said they looked like old hospital sheets. I was very disappointed as LLBean usually has great products. I hate to return things so I'm going to donate these to a shelter. And I even feel a little badly about giving them such blah colors.
