Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanforNYC Sunwashed Percale Crisp Yet Soft
Second set of sunwashed cotton percale is cool, crisp, doesn't "grab" and fits nicely with deep pockets on king sized mattress. Washed these before use, cold water & line dried - still nicely soft and comfy. I ordered the whale percale set first; slept on those at the beginning of the season and then ordered this set so I have a clean set every time I change linens. I ordered both sets with extra matching cases and very pleased. Used a sale coupon on each order. Waiting for another coupon to order a vintage matelesse navy bedspread! I have used Bean flannel sheets for years.....they have held up beautifully, hoping and optimistic the percale does as well. Bean bed linens really are nice quality and fairly priced - especially with a sale coupon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mamusca1 Great fit!
I recently purchased the sun washed percale king size sheets, even though they say for 15 inch fitted sheet, they are for deeper pockets, I absolutely love them. The fitted sheet stays on the mattress after sleeping on them all night, no corners popping off, nice job ll bean for catching up with the times with people who have mattresses with pillow tops and have difficult time finding sheets that fit, and the sheets are great quality. I like my sheets crisps and cool, thanks again llbean for a great job done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Housefinch Even better than I had hoped
This is a review of the Sunwashed Percale Sheets and Pillowcases. By way of background, I like only sheets that are cool and crisp. I know there are many fans of flannel sheets, and each to his own, but to me flannel sheets feel like sleeping in a pile of laundry--warm and cozy but not what I am looking for. I hesitate to order sheets online--but these turned out to be perfect for me. They feel smooth and cool and look lovely. I have a new mattress and boxspring, and the fitted sheet fits perfectly; it stays on, but I don't have to wrestle the bed to get it on. I love the blue mist pattern, which looks like a stencil to me. I think it would go with any decor--traditional, modern, beach cottage. They also wash beautifully. I'm really pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthofSF These sheets make me happy!
After years of sticking to white or cream cotton sheets, I first bought the Sunwashed Percale sheets and pillowcases in the green print, and when the pale turquoise color was added, I bought a set of those as well. Who knew that sheets with a bit more color could bring such cheer to a bedroom. The fabric is substantial but crisp, and I love they way the it rustles, which to me is a sign of sheets that don't drape and stick to the body, so they keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. These sheets wash and dry beautifully. For an even crisper feel to the pillowcases, I take them from the washer and hang them on a drying rack, which almost makes them seem ironed.
For me, the only drawback of this sheet set is the all-around elastic on the bottom sheets. I have a deep mattress, but to make the bottom sheet lay truly flat, I'd have to have an 18-inch deep mattress. But that's a minor quibble. I especially love the light-turquoise color and will be buying a duplicate set, because they're so happy-making that I'd hate to be without them!

I like the quality of the percale in these sheets. However, I cannot understand why they don't respect the measures for a standard queen size mattress!! Generous is the last thing you want for a FITTED sheet. These are ridiculously large everywhere. I've tried to shrink them in the drier but my mattress looks like it's wearing hand-me-downs from an older brother. It's silly ......... I wish they would make them the right size. They could even save material and lower the price, because these sheets are huge!

We have been looking for percale sheets to replace the ones that we have had since last year. Thought this would fit the bill when we got them. They are crisp and more sheer, as percale sheets should be, however, sleeping on them was not pleasant. They are NOT cool, they are NOT smooth and they do not allow you to move comfortably in bed; i.e. they "grab" onto other fabrics. I researched online and all recommended LLBean Pima Cotton Percale sheets. Just ordered them--hoping these do the trick because they are our last resort!!

Yes, crisp and smooth best describes this sheet set. I purchased this set in king bright orange, I will say more of a terracotta which is what I was hoping. They wash well and are very generous in their sizing.
For those of you who are concerned about the background color not being a bright white? Here is what it looks like with a bright white bed cover.

After washing the sheets, they came out of the dryer ready to use - no ironing needed. The fitted sheet is generous enough to fit comfortably over our very deep mattress. Love the print; the blue goes well with my denim color scheme. All in all, a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHoceanluver Love These Sheets!
I have purchased sheets from several other merchants, and all of them were disappointing: cheap fabric that wore through quickly; loose fitted sheets; top sheets that barely had enough sheet to tuck in the sides. This set of sheets from LL Bean were exactly what I had hoped they would be! The fabric is nice and crisp, but smooth and not scratchy. They feel like the high quality sheets my grandmother used to have on her beds. The fitted sheet has a great elastic that holds tight to the mattress. The top sheet has lots of room on both sides and length-wise to tuck in. These sheets came through the wash well, with no change in size, quality, or color. I highly recommend these sheets. Since they are new, I can't comment on how well they will last, but from the feel, I am hopeful that they will last a long time. If they do not, I am covered by the LL Bean guarantee.

Terrific sheets! I have paid more for lesser quality. They wash up beautifully. After having 1 set for a month, I ordered another set. Love them.
