Rated 5 out of 5 by NJLLBeanShopper732 My husband and I love these sheets!
First off, this is the most I've ever spent on sheets. I've been buying our Queen size sheet sets for years at our local big box store. When the less expensive sheets started wearing thin and ripping after 18 months of use, it was time to try something new. These LL Bean sheets are wrinkle free out of the dryer and are crisp feeling, like nice hotel sheets. There's no problem with them fitting our 18 inch deep queen size mattress either. The flat sheet is nice and extra long so it folds over the top of the coverlet.
We loved the sheets so much we purchased 2 sets - one each blue mist and indigo versions as well as extra pillow cases. Hopefully these will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlackLabsRtheBEST Great, classic percale
I love the feel of crisp cotton percale, and these have it. I don't care about wrinkled pillow cases if that's the price you pay for the perfect sheets for hot summer nights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lovesoftflannel Beautiful but Loud
Everything about these sheets is wonderful - the looks, the quality, the sizing. The one thing bad about them is that they are very loud and I don't know why. I'll keep them because I used my LL Bean coupons to pay for them but I wouldn't have kept them if I would have paid for them out of my pocket. Make them quiet and I'll get another set. Would recommend them if you don't mind noisy sheets. No sneaking out of bed with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texian4 Love these Sheets!
Just received our Sunwashed Percale Sheets in Blue Mist. Last night we slept on them in total comfort! They are so soft yet crisp - just the kind of sheets you want for summer! No noise from the sheets. We are anxious to sleep on them a few more nights and wash them another time or two to see how they hold up. We've had problems with other Queen size sheets being too big for the mattress. These fit pretty good. The fitted sheet might have been a bit tighter in the fit but we are happy with it for now. Want to see when these sheets go on sale to order more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RDH76 Noisiest sheets ever
It is hard to believe that a cotton sheet can be noisy. It sounds like you are sleeping in a paper bag. Any movement sets off a crinkling, crackling sound that is disturbing. Otherwise, sheets were soft. We took advantage of LLBean's generous return policy and exchanged these Sunwashed sheets for a set of 280 count percale. What a difference. I highly recommend the 280 percales, soft, comfortable and silent like a sheet should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NCMountainCustomer These are the BEST sheets ever
Thank you, LLBean. Seriously. I have had so many sheets that deteriorate quickly, get scratchy, aren't cool to the touch and come out of the dryer a wrinkled mess... until now. These sheets are perfect -- cool, soft, they wash and dry well and look great right out of the dryer. I only wish they came in more colors since I plan on buying SEVERAL more sets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CambridgeGrrl Pretty but rough.
Love the look of these, and definitely have a "crisp"/clean feel. Unfortunately they're a bit rough, you wouldn't want to jump/slide into bed and the sheets are not snuggly by any means. Not to be a sheet snob but I would feel bad even putting these on a guest bed. After a year worth of washes and uses I'm still not a fan, would try a different version of LLBean sheets next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mtbjane Best sheets ever!
I love these sheets. Usually I get higher thread count sheets but I find myself too warm with softer sheets. I wanted something "crispy and cool" so I tried these percale sheets.
I haven't slept better in a long time. I have a memory foam bed with a mattress cover that is waterproof. This makes my bed on the warm side. However, after using these sheets, I no longer feel overheated. The sheets are soft, yet cool and crisp. They wash well with some shrinkage but the quality remains. I am sticking with percale!

Rated 4 out of 5 by snapperblue great except pleat-like wrinkles at hem
I really like these sheets. They are very comfy and soft. I don't understand the other reviews that say the are rough, noisy, or cling when you move on them. That is not my experience. I ordered another set.
I have an old mattress, not deep like the modern ones, so most fitted sheets are too loose. However, the elastic on this fitted sheet does a good job keeping the sheet in place.
The only thing I don't like is that the top sheet wide hem has permanent pleats- always in the same place- making the hem tightly crumpled. I have experienced this with sheets and shirt plackets- don't know why.
So I have to iron the hem, very annoying. Or, when it comes out of the washer, I can stretch the cloth and rub it back and forth across the edge of the washer, bit by bit along the hem, which may flatten it enough so I can get by without ironing it.
Otherwise I'd give 5 stars.
