Rated 1 out of 5 by Itsalulu Percale imposter
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanShopper000 Only LL Bean sheets for me
I love LL Bean sheets, have been buying them for well over 15 years... and was recently pleased to read that Consumer Reports confirms my high opinion of them. This Sunwashed Print Set is no exception... just as crisp and high quality as the others. (The pillow cases on my last set finally wore thin after 7 years of daily use. The sheets are still going strong!) I just wish there were solids and prints available in a light and/or dark blue-green.

I've washed them a couple of times, and they are not soft. Not smooth against the skin. Not soft. Otherwise very nice. But not what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kmak tried to find quality sheets like these for years
the minute I opened the package, I knew I made the right choice. These are the sheets I had been trying to find - the ones that were like the sheets from my wedding shower 34 yrs ago. Quality from yesteryear - not the garbage that is made today and advertised as something it is not! These sheets are substantial, crisp and yet soft enough --- some sheets I had purchased thru the years were so thin you may as well have slept right on your mattress! These also look great --- I plan on buying another pair.
P.S. took them from the package and washed in cool water; using fabric softener. Put in dryer on LOW heat and removed immediately and folded --- when I took them a few days later to put them on my bed ---- not one wrinkle.

These sheets/cases are very high quality and are reminiscent of the good sheets we used to get from the department stores before the department store sheets went downhill (probably due to store owners putting their bottom line over making their customers happy by providing them with high quality products at decent prices.) Well, what goes around comes around, and I never shop for sheets at department stores for my sheets anymore. The Sunwashed percale from L.L Bean are fabulous - well constructed, sturdy, super soft percale. They barely wrinkle if taken straight out of the dryer. Word to the wise - NEVER use fabric softener or dryer sheets on these sheet as you will ruin them. I use a mixture of borax & arm & hammer washing soda mixed with a tiny bit of charlie's washing powder (natural stuff) and the sheets come out like they've been hung outside in the fresh air & sunshine. And no, I do not work for a laundry detergent company. I am super picky about sheets though. You really cannot go wrong with these sheets if you treat them correctly.
