Rated 2 out of 5 by Tessiearoo Too big
This sheet set was the 2nd I had purchased from LLBean. Loved the first set -- the pattern was beautiful and they were really soft, but the fitted sheet was way too big. It did not hug the corners like it should. I kept them anyway since I had washed them first. Only had them about a year and the fitted sheet now has a hole in it. I thought I'd try again; maybe the first set was a fluke, but no. Same problem. I'm returning them and will not try again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NortheastNeighbour Beautiful material
I purchased the king-sized version of this sheet set in the pale turquoise colour....a gorgeous shade, perfect for summer with a white cotton blanket and sheer curtains.
The material is crisp and soft...so smooth and cool. They wash beautifully. The edges of the sheets and pillowcases can fold/crease at times when coming out of the dryer, but I don't bother to iron them as they are only for personal use and are not on the "company" beds. :)
The sizing is generous and in fact the pockets on the fitted sheet are too deep for our new Euro-top mattress. The excess material is unfortunate, as I do have to smooth and tuck it under the mattress after each night or two...surprising, because our Premium Supima Flannel sheets fit perfectly. Not a deal breaker for me because I love everything else about the sheets, but that is why I am only giving the set four stars rather than five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanYay So so amazingly comfortable!
I love these sheets. I didn't realize it was possible to have sheets that were both crisp AND soft at the same time. I've had them for a about two months and wash them weekly- they have washed and dried easily with no noticeable wear at this point. These are incredible sheets... so very comfortable. To be fair, I am no connoisseur of sheets, but I am just so happy with these. I will be ordering another set soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RSAE Best Sheets Ever!
I have to say that these are the best sheets I have ever purchased. They are cool to the touch yet warm enough to feel comfortable. They are crisp, like my grandmother's sheets on the line, but have such softness. Washes up beautifully...hems on pillowcases needs a little ironing if you don't get them out of the dryer on time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MkeNow Great sheets
These are great sheets. The fabric is soft and really wrinkle-free. Generously-sized sheets with a crisp look and feel. I'm buying a second set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gillyjeans Love these sheets!
We have three sets of the sunwashed percale sheets and we love them. They are what I would describe as crisp not especially soft. They do sometimes need a little ironing but they are wonderfully cool, comfortable and hardwearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mnmom55 Finally!
I have been looking for the right percale sheets for years. (NOT exaggerating!) In fact, my linen closet is full of sheet sets that I dislike. Most wrinkle horribly and I refuse to iron sheets. Some are stiff and make a crackling noise when you move. These are perfect! They wash like a dream and come out of the dryer with no wrinkles. They are wonderful to sleep on and keep me much cooler than sateen sheets. They fit my pillow - top mattress perfectly and the print is so cute. Please keep making the sunwashed percale, because I plan to buy more!

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.
