Wildflower Percale Sheet Set
crisp comfortable beautiful linen
I love these sheets! The quality is absolutely excellent. They are so crisp even if you use fabric softener. They are not harsh or scratchy feeling to the skin. The print is absolutely beautiful!. The sheets are nice and large for my thick King size bed. I bought the blue print and i actually have the other set on the white print in my cart. I hope they come out with more gentle prints like this I would like to have a total of 3 sets. I think the price was very good for the quality I got. I highly recommend these sheets if you love comfort and quality. Thanks vermont Country Store!!

I searched everywhere for percale sheets because I dislike what is mostly on the local market now which is micro-fiber sheets. I finally found these sheets and thought I might as well try them since I had so much trouble finding percale sheets.
These sheets are wonderful. They are crisp, cool and smooth.
As for some of the comments about wrinkles I ignored them because I have had worse wrinkles in other sheets. The wrinkles in these sheets are minor.
The only issue I have with them is the elastic. It would be better to have wider elastic on them. I think the bottom sheet would be less likely to move around.

Finally Percale Sheets
I've been looking for nicely printed floral no-iron Percale Sheets forever. I love the print and color but these are 100% cotton so definitely need to be ironed after washing if you want that smooth crisp feel of cotton percale.
I'd really love to see the old "no-iron percale" variety that was a cotton/polyester blend that was sold all over for years and years. I hate ironing sheets and pillowcases but I loath the "sateen" variety that's offered even more. Whatever happened to no-iron percale?

pretty pretty percale
Just what I wanted- pretty and percale. hems need ironing unless you grab them right out of the dryer but
not so bad you can't use them for yourself-for company I'd iron the top hems.

ALMOST PERFECT EXCEPT FOR....
Wish the background on the sheets would have been white so the floral pattern was more crisp. Outside of that it is a good sheet set for the price.

Crisp, cool, field of flowers.
I am delighted with these sheets. I had been searching a long time for these old fashioned crisp sheets. The feel is crisp, but not rough. I bought the ivory color and the little blue and yellow flowers are so cheery.
I have a memory foam mattress which is notorious for getting hot during the night. That problem is vastly reduced with these sheets.
The elastic on the fitted sheet seems really strong. I'll bet it will last a long time.
I dried my sheets on the clothesline for extra crisp freshness, so mine may have wrinkled more than they would in the dryer, but I don't really care.
Why must a sheet be ironed anyway? I suspect that the obsession with wrinkle free sheets is one factor which has led us to this sorry state of affairs where stores offer only limp, high thread count sheets. Like fine linen, a good percale sheet is going to wrinkle. It isn't a flaw. Embrace it.

LOVELY SET, BUT THEY DO WRINKLE
I bought the wildflower percale sheet set in the white with the flannel sheet blanket to match. They are
a beautiful set and the sheet blanket is first quality, but don't buy these sheets if you think they are not going to wrinkle. As directed I washed them before using and ended up with a wrinkled mess. Washed them as
per directions...still ended up with a wrinkled mess. I
hate having sheets that have to be ironed...but it seems
the only alternative. Blanket Great...sheets not as advertised.

These percale sheets are very pretty and remind me of my childhood sheets. However, even with the elastics (that I bought at your store) on the corners they are still to deep for my mattress and bunch up on the bottom fitted sheet after a few nights. I'll get better at stretching them tight, but I wish they wouldn't make the pocket so deep (14").
