Sunwashed Percale Sheet Collection, Stripe Leaf is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generous Sizing, slightly noisy I like that the top sheet is very long on the sides so we can both stay covered. I did not realize that the pillowcases and top sheet have cording at the hems- not a fan. The hems on the cases and top sheet are skimpy by comparison to some older sheets I have. I don't like the slightly crackly sound they make or the slick feeling. OK for summer but will be unpleasant this winter. Whatever happened to good old soft percale sheets with lower thread count but so comfy and without the noise. And just because I didn't notice it and am being picky, the stripes on the cases seem to run the wrong way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite sheets Sunwashed sheets are my favorite. This is my fourth set - not because they wear out, but because I treat myself to new sheets every couple years. I find that I want a new color long before the sheets wear out. These sheets are soft, but not silky; they are 100% cotton which is oddly hard to find. I also have a sunwashed comforter cover that I use in the summer that I love; it really is cooler than my winter flannel cover. I guess the sheets are a bit wrinkly coming out of the dryer, but it doesn't bother me...they're bed sheets! I do wish LLB would make more solid colors without pintuck again. This stripe leaf pattern coordinates with my comforter cover so I'm happy. Treat yourself to new sheets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sheets I love the generous cut of the sheet. No longer have to strain to get the fixed sheet over the mattress like my former set. And they have kindly added a little tag inside to identify the long side, why doesn't everyone else do that? They are brilliant! The only thing I don't like, which is common to many pillow cases, is that they are too long. I paid extra to get a matching set of "regular" pillow cases to use on my king bed and am paying a seamstress to alter the 42 inch long king cases that come with the set to fit a regular size pillow and use the excess material to add a tuck and flap for hygienic reasons, like European pillow cases. For this price point, it would be nice to offer that option ready made and also let people order the pillow cases separately. But the fabric is beautiful, sturdy and so comfy. Truly worth the expense, I will enjoy them for many years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not up to par for the price LL Bean charged me full price for these sheets that rightfully belong on the “seconds” shelf of a discount store. While folding the sheets after washing I discovered the following: The pillow cases were sewn together with 2 pieces of fabric creating two side seams instead of the usual way with good quality cases using a single double-width piece joined with one side seam. One of the cases has contrasting white piping trim inserted all around the top hem. (Nice.) However, the other case has separate white piping on only one side. The other side has “false” piping made by sewing a very narrow hem into the pillow fabric. (Not so nice.) The flat top sheet also has only “false” piping across the entire top hem. (No white piping at all. (Really not nice.) I'll keep the sheets because the cotton fabric seems fine and the sheets are usable. But these sheets were very overpriced given the shoddy, inconsistent construction and lack of quality control.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stiff and Scratchy I loved my PREVIOUSLY purchased LLBean Sheets and i am very disappointed in this purchase. These sheets are scratchy and stiff, even after several washing. The queen fitted sheet is too large, so the sheet doesn't stay snug and tight. The flat sheet is far too wide, hanging too low on the sides. I would NEVER purchase these sheets a again. What a shame. The design and color was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite sheets! These are the third set of LLBean cotton sunwashed percale sheets I've purchased. I love their smooth, cotton softness, and their appealing prints and colors. They require no ironing because they come out of the dryer with only a few wrinkles that are easily smoothed out when making the bed. These sheets are cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. Plus, the dimensions are generous enough to provide more than adequate coverage while sleeping for my husband and I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Sheets I love the percale sheets I get from L L Bean. They are always my favorite and I come back to buy more every time. The percale fabric is the best. They wash beautifully and wear extremely well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect crisp yet soft percale I have two other sets of LLBean’s sun washed percale sheets and these are just as nice as the other sets. They are perfectly crisp yet not too scratchy. They come out of the dryer beautifully. I love this new pattern. I wish LLBean would come out with other colors/patterns in the sun washed percale besides blue and white!
