Rated 5 out of 5 by foxyny Best Sheets Ever
These sheets are wonderful! They are a substantial weight and I love the cool, crisp feeling of the percale. After sleeping on these sheets, I will continue to purchase as I haven't found any comparable to this wonderful crisp percale. Yes they are somewhat noisy and do wrinkle some but that doesn't bother me as the quality is awesome. I have had this set for 8 months and washed them repeatedly and they still look and feel like new sheets. The one issue I do have is the same as many other reviewers. The sheets are so generously sized that the bottom sheet is loose and has to be tucked in each time when making the bed. This, however, would not prevent me from purchasing another set when these eventually wear out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by aspiring1 Nice sheets but be aware of the sizing
I bought these for a new mattress we purchased recently. The mattress measures 14.5 inches in height. The LLBean description said the sheets would fit mattresses up to 15 inches thick. Not true, the bottom sheet is cut very large and is at least 3-4 inches too long. It would easily fit an 18 inch mattress. As a result the bottom sheet will not stay tight. The bed requires remaking by pulling the bottom sheet back into place each morning. I like the material. It has a nice crisp feel. If you have an exceptionally high mattress, this is the set for you. Otherwise, buy elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BluJay Classy-looking (and fitting!) sheets
These sheets are attractive and seem to be sturdy, as they've been laundered for a year now. The BEST part is that the bottom sheet fits over the stupid seemingly oversize queen mattress we bought recently. Our existing sheets just would not do the job, requiring two people to yank & pull & still not stay in place. LLBean"s
fit like a dream. Tho' they're pricey, I waited till some points accumulated & bought a second set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewHaven Exceeded expectations!
This year, I became tired of wearing through sheets so quickly, and decided to invest in a really high quality set of sheets. I am new to words like "percale" and "sateen" but did my homework and LLBean sheets came up again and again as top rated. I decided to take the plunge and see how they are. We've had them for less than a week, but I already love them. They feel crisp and have a great fresh feel, but I was really surprised that they are also warmer than most of our previous sheets, too, which is a huge plus for me, as someone who is always cold. I am eager to see how they hold up after many washings, but am pleasantly satisfied with them already.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RestlessSleeper So Far, So Good
Have washed this set twice and the crispy cool feel is delightful. A bit wrinkled right out of the dryer - I have been ironing the pillow cases. As others have commented, the bottom sheet is VERY deep and has a loose fit. Overall, this is the kind of percale that I have been looking for. I am hoping that these sheets will continue to soften without going limp in any way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AnnefromCanada Like fine sandpaper
These sheets were very disappointing. I was attracted by the lace for a guest bedroom that I've recently redecorated. And because they are LL Bean I assumed the quality would be high. (I love LL Bean!) The lace is very pretty but the sheets are rough (not crisp) and far from soft. My daughter sleep in them recently and she asked if I'd change them as they were so uncomfortably rough.
The fabric is very thin. I can imagine they'd tear easily. I never thought about wrinkles in sheets before, but these are so wrinkly that they are noticeable to someone who doesn't normally notice that kind of thing.
These are not inexpensive sheets - it must be the lace you are paying for as these are very low quality sheets.
I don't understand the positive reviews. These are the worse sheets ever. Frankly, I'm surprised LL Bean carries them.

Bought two twin size sets for my two girls who share a bedroom. I couldn't have found a sweeter design and I love tucking them in these. The girls took a liking to them right away. They are just like they're pictured and seem to be made well. No problems. They're generously cut and fit around thicker mattresses so well the girls can make their beds all by themselves (!) They have a crisp (but still soft) feel which is just perfect for summer.
