Rated 4 out of 5 by mgmerritt Great softness, but hems look a mess with creases
Love these 3 year old solid white sheets--so soft and comfortable. EXCEPT that 2 of my 3 top sheets and 1 of my 8 pillow cases have developed seemingly permanent creases and folds within the deep hem--which is of course what always shows. I have tried everything, including taking them to my dry cleaners/laundry and having them steam the hems without folds, but as soon as they are washed and dried, the same folds reappear. This is driving me crazy. HELP, LL, do you have any solutions to my sheet problems? (P.S., I have no issues with my supima flannel sheets, just the sateen ones, and not all of those.) :-(

We purchased a full set consisting of a flat and fitted sheet, 2 pillow cases and a Duvet cover in LL Bean's 340-Thread-Count Cotton Sateen about a year ago and are completely delighted with them all. We washed all the products before placing them on our bed and they came out of the wash with the softest hand we have ever experienced. They are one of life's little luxuries as far as we are concerned. So happy we bought them!

These sheets are wonderful. They are very smooth and cool feeling. Wash up wonderful. I purchased for both my married kids as well. You will never want any other sheets after sleeping on these.

I was skeptical about ordering these sheets after reading some of the reviews, but I should not have worried. They are well made, soft and comfortable. Very few wrinkles if you get them right out of the dryer.

I bought this flat sheet to go with a print set that LLBean no longer carries. Not only does the light blue go beautifully with the print, but the new top sheet is soft and smooth, launders well, and is very comfortable. Now I want to find the same sheet in a lavender or light purple to go in our guest room, but sadly, I might have to go with white.

The quality of the sheets satisfies me that they will wear as well as the other LLBean sheets I have been using for some time. My husband likes the way they stay tucked in at the bottom. Excellent purchase.

Love them! I was concerned when I read some of the unsatisfied costumers comments but, decided to try them anyway. They washed up nicely and are very soft and comfortable to sleep on. I did not have any issues with the materials coming apart.
I like them so much I am ordering more.

I thought they would be shiny but they are just fine. Ivory color goes well with my Sea Ice floral circle coverlet. Looks just wonderful together. No wrinkles if you take them right out of the dryer. They are very soft but not shiny like satin. If they were, I'd have returned them. Happy with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JJWPhilly White Splotches Develop Quickly-Twice
We're on our second set, Blue Grass. Issue developed with first set almost immediately. We were very careful: washed in cold (specs suggest warm), absolutely no bleach. Called Bean, great customer service as always: exchanged set. Took a little longer (5 washings?), but problem has reappeared. Not sure what's happening, but white splotches, spots, etc., appearing. Is dye fading? At this point, not sure if we have the energy to return and exchange and have same problem arise a third time. Looking at other reviews, doesn't seem to be a common issue, but it's happened to us twice. Very surprised and disappointed, especially since otherwise we love the feel of the sheets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sewilsongo Very disappointed
LLBean has always delivered high quality merchandise, so I was willing to spend extra money to get great sheets. These are terrible! For 100% cotton, they are the scratchiest sheets I've ever had to sleep on. I washed them before I put them on the bed, and I was a little worried when they came out of the dryer scratchy. I decided to try them for a night, but nearly got up to change them in the middle of the night.
It seems like there's some kind of wrinkle-resistant coating on these that causes them to be scratchy. When I'm in bed, I care more how they feel than how they look, and these feel terrible.
These will definitely go back immediately.
