Rated 5 out of 5 by VermontSarah Best sheets ever, no contest
I purchased these sheets last week after literally years of looking for what I consider the perfect sheet. I wanted sheets that reminded me of the substantial crisp cotton sheets I had as a kid. Remember those hot summer nights when you couldn't sleep with a blanket, but your top sheet was substantial enough to keep away the boogeyman and you would turn the pillow over in the middle of the night so that you could lay on the cool side? THOSE were the sheets I wanted.
I have no fewer than 10 sheet sets languishing in my linen closet that didn't pass the boogeyman/cool pillow test.
And the I found THESE and they are the sheets I had as a kid (just bigger).
They are crisp cotton but not rough or cheap feeling. They crinkle just enough to sound comforting, but not enough to keep us up. The pillow has a cool side! The top sheet is long enough to stay tucked in at the foot of the bed, despite my husband's 6'3" frame (he's just thrilled his feet don't poke out!). AND, they're more affordable than most king-sized sheet sets out there.
I'm going to buy enough of these for my kids' bedrooms and guest room as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KLAUS A feel-good sheet
I had purchased a queen set for my daughter and she loved the look and feel, calls them her "spa" sheets. So I now purchased this twin set for my granddaughter.

Kudos LL Bean... I love the Sunwashed Pintuck Sheet Set
I finally found a sheet set that feels like fresh crisp cool linen right off the line even though they were dried in the dryer. The fabric is just right, not too crisp, not too soft. The construction is fantastic, no crooked seams or loose threads like you may find with some brands.
I am delighted that the bottom sheet has elastic on all sides and fits the a 12 inch mattress just fine, and appears to be able to equally accommodate the newer much larger foundations.
The top sheet leaves enough fabric length to fold down some at the top with plenty to tuck generously in at the end of the bed, at least on a 12 inch mattress.
Comfort, oh my yes! I normally get too warm causing me to toss & turn all night; but not with these sheets. I found them cool to the touch and slept comfortable all night. In fact, I can truly say it was the best night sleep I had in months. My husband also said he "slept like a rock last night". We did not find the sheets crunchy or noisy at all; as some reviews mentioned.
Thank you L.L.Bean for a great product at a reasonable price point. I will be ordering another set for my guest room soon.

This is my second set of full size sheets and they wear so well and feel great. I have also brought two sets of king size sheets and they are terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by knittingfool Wonderful sheets
I bought a set of these in white a couple of months ago and have been very happy with them: The well-sewn elastic goes all the way around the fitted sheet, which is a very generous depth, and the fabric is substantial yet feels cool and smooth to the touch. I've washed and used them and love them. I didn't think that sheets like these were available any longer ... what a great find. If not overdried and removed immediately from the dryer at the end of a cycle, they don't wrinkle. If you're super picky, it will only take a brief touch up iron to make the pillowcases perfect. These will last for years. I'm getting another set for the guest room.

I love these sheets! Not only are they pretty, they feel wonderful. I like crisp substantial sheets and these are just that! I washed them before putting on my bed even though I was afraid they would lose the crispness. They did not! I do not have an oversized dryer so I dried each sheet (and one pillowcase) separately. I also used several wool dryer balls (lavender scented from my local farmers market) . No wrinkles!

These are really elegant sheets, pretty, generously sized and feel cool and good. These need to be ironed to look nice, in my opinion, but I have always ironed all sheets and pillowcases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PearlGirl315 Ahh! Cotton!
Wonderful crisp sheets that have a lovely cottony feel. Good thread count and very pretty edging. Great value for the price. I do not like the current craze for sateen and microfiber is despicable. These feel like sheets from 50 years ago. I like to line dry them to reduce wrinkling and sometimes press the hems. Dry them outside for sweet dreams from childhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Schoobie Sheets feel wonderful!
This is the second set of these sheets I have purchased from LL Bean. They are the best sheets I have ever owned. I liked that the pillow cases had been reworked to function much better.
