Rated 2 out of 5 by JoKes Disappointing
I bought these sheets because I liked the sailboat pattern and figured the price and the ll bean brand insured they would be very good. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed and sorry I'd spent the money on them. They came out of the dryer very wrinkled, although I washed them twice, used fabric softener both times and removed them promptly. Also, for me the pattern is upside down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamsowner Love them
I read some of the negative reviews about the sheets, but the colors and pattern were perfect for my bedroom, so I purchased them. The sheets I received were lovely. They fit easily over my mattress, were not thin and the colors were as pictured, muted but not dull. The only negative I have about them is that the parts that show when the bed is made....the pillowcases and top of the top sheet, really do have to be ironed. I'd still buy them again.

These are fun yet have an elegant look and feel to them. They are perfect for my teen son's room. It's hard to find something other than a stripe or geometric for young men, and these are a welcome change.
They are light, airy, and crisp, perfect for summer. The colors are muted, not gaudy, and they don't look pink to us (as others have suggested). They washed well. My son thinks they're great. We have no complaints and only praise for these sheets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldFolkie Package says 200 count web site says 220, doesn't
The sheets are fine. The inconsistency between the packaging and the web site is disconcerting. Advised that they are 220. I'm not going to count :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by maxanaga not crisp,
I prefer crisp and cool sheets which are no longer available since the old US mills closed. The best so far have been the sand dollar print which seems to be seasonal and they were sold out. I got these hoping they would be crisp but they are limp so I'll be returning them. Ive gotten the solid color which are good quality but not as crisp and cool as the sand dollar. Thread count can be irrelevant nowadays because there is such variation in thread thickness so even though the sand dollar was lower than the LLBean solids, it feels better to sleep on and I will wait for them to come back.

I've been looking at these sheets for about a year and finally decided to treat myself. Not only are the sailboats adorable, the cotton is crisp and cool. I was unsure about the "pink" comments in other reviews but am glad I took a risk because I really don't see pink at all. My walls are Woodlawn Blue, my bed is cherry and carpet is creamy off-white wool. The sheets fit right in and are beautiful! Thank you for a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daysailer A more feminine sailing print
I happen to like percale as it tends to be cooler and crisper than sheets that have a higher thread count but a less tight weave.
Yes, the sheets have a bit of rosy glow but that picks up the tones in my hickory floors and would pick up the tone in most wood floors. It also makes the sheets less flat and more feminine. Mostly, this is a sail print that a woman can enjoy because of its style and colors, so I'm very pleased.
To echo an earlier comment, the fitted and flat sheets are both exceptionally generous in size.

Cute print but thread count mislabeled in product description. A bit disappointed.

Considering the thread count is only 200 or 220, these sheets are quite soft. I have washed them three times and they dry with not much wrinkle.. Personally, i think the photo is quite acurate. The sheet is a warm cream color and the boat colors are very muted. They have a cool summery look and feel. Fun sheets for a cottage.

From the catalog the sheets looked beige or grey, but ended up having a creamy pink background. It goes well with my decor but I was expecting it to have less pink in the color.
The fitted sheet is very roomy and fits the deeper queen size matrress we have.
