Knit Sheet Set or Pillowcase
Welcoming softness at the end of the day.
My household has worn out several sets of the Supima jersey sheets over the years - no small task, given how durable they are. When I simply had to replace them, I was a little skeptical given the reviews and the fact that the Supima ones are no longer made. However, I am delighted with the new version. I love the coziness and softness of the sheets. They are generously cut, so no problems with mattress corners. There is no shrinkage or twisting (as with cheaper competitor versions) of the pillowcase seams when washed. My only wish would be the ability to buy replacement pillowcases separately, as they occasionally get stained and the entire sheet set makes a pricey replacement.

Excellent Choice For Comfortable Sleep
I first bought a set of these sheets about two years ago, and that set still looks and feels as good as when they were new, so I had no doubt about buying another set. They really do hold their shape and the fitted sheet lies flat because of the deep pocket and all-around elastic. The top sheet does not stretch out of shape as with those I've bought from other places. I use these sheets nearly all year, switching to flannel only for the 3-4 coldest months of winter. This is a great buy.

I really wanted to like these sheets because they are very comfortable. However, the lint in the dryer is very excessive. The first washing, the lint screen had at least 1/2 inch of fine powder. After 2 months of use and washing, the lint is slightly better but still incredibly excessive. I am surprised that the sheets are still there given the amount of lint. And I have spotted many small holes in the fitted and flat sheets. Unfortunately, this item will be our first Lands End return.

Soft Cool Comfortable Sheets
This is our first purchase of the knit sheets and they are worth every penny. I've tried other brands but this set holds it's shape after washing. And they are so comfortable. I believe they will be great year-round. And I like that I can buy extra pillowcases. I am sold on Lands' End knit sheets. :)

These sheets are comfortable and seem to be well made but I can't cope with the lint! It's very fine and gets all over the laundry room. I've washed these sheets three times and the lint doesn't seem to be decreasing.

Love The Sheets - Worried About The Lint!
I just recently purchased these sheets and absolutely love them! With that being said, I am EXTREMELY concerned about the lint (if you can even call it that) that has collected in my dryer lint screen. This is more of a fine lint powder that is two inches thick in my lint collector. I clean out the lint screen half way through the drying cycle and continue drying and the excessive lint builds up again. I have washed these sheets twice and now my clothes are taking twice as long to dry and I have to have somebody come and clean the dryer vent out! You would think that would be enough to send them back, but no-I love them so much I will take them to a laundromat to dry them for the next few washings if the excessive lint eventually tapers down to an acceptable amount. Can anyone else tell me if the lint dissipates after multiple drying cycles and if so, how many does it take? Thank you in advance for any insight.

CAUTION IN THE DRYER
Just received these king sheets for Christmas and am disappointed. Washed them for the first time and the dryer screen became over full and tight with lint--a possible fire hazard in an older dryer without a protective back-up for this occurance. Had to vacuum over-flow lint from the vent itself. Would suggest drying these on a few short cycles and checking screen often. The bottom sheet has a nice roomy fit. Top sheet does not hang as long on the sides of the bed as good qualitypercale sheets. Don't know if these shrunk when washed or not yet, even though water temperature was only warm and dry medium.. Will wash them again and see if they respond the same. The monogram on the top sheet and pillow cases is nice on the front, but not trimmed on the back and is rough edged, esp. for sheets. The sheets are not as soft as I had expected. Lands end cotton is always nice and soft and had expected sheets to be the same.Will see how they wash the second time and then evaluate if they are ok to keep based on amount of lint and if there really is shrinkage.

Like the jersey cotton sheets
I do very much like the jersey cotton sheets. I have bought two sets, and use them year round. However, I have to contend with the non-bunching/non-torquing claim. It is probably true for standard mattresses, but for a Tempur-Pedic mattress, due to how it conforms to one's body shape, the sheets do bunch and torque to a degree. Potential customers with Tempur-Pedic mattresses should take this into consideration.
Additionally I bought extra pillowcases in the dark navy blue color. After washing them they dried with a "twist" along the seams and cannot be folded smooth and flat. Lands' End replaced the original set, but the replacement set did the same thing. I did not replace them a second time.

We've had a queen set for over a year, and we continually use these sheets all winter long (just wash, and re-apply to bed :). They fit great and hold up well, and they're just the right weight-- warmer than percale, but cooler and smoother than flannel. My only complaint is the colors they're offered in-- I'd like something prettier, like lavender, soft mint or sage, or light blue, for example, especially to order for my daughter's new bed.

Soft, durable sheets
Everytime I get into bed I'm happy I purchased these sheets. I was skeptical of the jersey knit but it is very soft and not too stretchy. Hope they last a long time.
