Rated 3 out of 5 by HmCody Nice, but...
I have used these sheets for about 2 months and have a real love/hate relationship with them.
The material itself if very nice: soft, comfortable and pleasant to sleep on. I have the blue ones and the color seems to be holding very well. Unfortunately, there are two problems that are ultimately going to make me find other sheets.
First, jersey is not an easy fabric to sew. As a result, the sheets are not very square, are hard to fold neatly and hard to get on the bed straight. It is almost as if they have built in wrinkles! This is a bit annoying, but probably not a game changer since it is a price you pay for the nice material.
The second problem is one that has been mentioned by other reviewers: the sheets are too small! And not just the fitted sheet but also the flat sheet. Most king sized sheets I have had extend about one mattress depth below the bottom of the mattress on the sides so that you can tuck them in at the bottom. These barely come to the bottom of the mattress, so no hope of tucking them in! Once I get in the bed, the edge of the sheet is already pulled up to the top of the mattress. As a result, I end up waking up several times a night with no covers on because they were barely covering me to start with.
These could be really great sheets. They just aren't at the moment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by minethatbird Doesn't fit deep mattresses
I'm satisfied with the weight and quality of the material. So far it has help up through several washes without pilling. However, the fitted sheet is not deep enough to fully accommodate my 11" thick mattress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ktdid Disappointed
I was very disappointed with these sheets. I loved the color (antique yellow) but not the material. The bottom sheet did not fit around my mattress well, and bunched up in the middle of the bed. I thought that since they were somewhat stretchy that would not be a problem. I ended up donating them to our local thrift store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NOVAgal Best jersey sheet we've used
These sheets are soft, wash well and look great. Our daughter has used jersey sheets before and these are the best, by far. Thank you for an excellent product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by yippur Terrible - very disappointing, poor value
I love jersey sheets and the company where I use to purchase my sheets no longer carries them. So, I thought LL Bean would be a great place to buy my sheets. LL Bean is known for good quality so why not spend the money and get good quality. Wrong. I obviously washed them before use and when removing them from the dryer, I could have cried. I had a handful of lint in my lint trap the size of a baseball. But I was not willing to give up so I washed them the second time and upon removing them from the dryer the lint trap had again another baseball size of lint. So I packed the sheets and balls of lint and sent them back to LL Bean. What a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stellalux AMAZING
These sheets are luxurious, extremely soft, and not too hot. I've ordered jersey sheets before and sent them back because they were way too hot. I love everything about these sheets and only wish I'd bought them sooner. Completely worth the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dlb1inaz Smelly & Thin
I received these King size sheets over 1 month ago, and they still have a very strong, offensive odor. They are also very thin - so thin that they are see through. I got the Silver Sand color, and when I put my hand behind it, the fabric looks transparent. So, I really dread laying on them for fear of stressing the fibers and wearing a hole in it or tearing it. I have yet to even be able to use them though because they are SO SMELLY so I cannot comment on how they hold up. I still can't belive how thin they are (they are only 4 oz of material). I have had much better - thicker - jersy sheets in the past that were 7 oz, and even they did not last very long so I have very low expectations for these. I am very disappointed. The quality is so poor. Why are you selling such poor products? You could have made them thicker. And why do they smell so bad? I will probably send them back. Having to pay for shipping and being so very inconvenienced is upsetting and makes me think twice about ordering online again. I expected better from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by G3HVAC Best all around sheets
Another great product from LL Bean. Perfect weight for Spring through Fall. A little light for winter if you only have a single comforter over them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kris10 Great!
These are the best jersey sheets I have ever purchased. I have had them for about three months now and they are still in great shape. I bought king size, followed washing directions and have not had a shrinking problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 Soft but short
Sheets are soft and comfortable. Fitted sheet fits mattress well, but king size flat sheet barely reaches edges of mattress. For this price it would be nice to have at least another foot of material on the sides to have room to share.
