SCRATCHY! It seems that over the last couple of years, brand-name sheet manufacturers have started using lower quality cotton, which makes for scratchy sheets. These are no exception, and are very disappointing. I don't mind that they are wrinkled after washing and drying. They ought to feel a little stiff, if they are supposed to be crisp. However, after washing them 3 times in the hopes they would smooth out, they did not and I have sent them back. Want really nice, smooth and crisp percale sheets? These aren't the ones.

Finally found the " perfect " sheets I have been searching for years to find sheets like the ones I slept on when I was a child - 1950's! They were always fresh and crisp but nothing I bought fit the bill until I found these at Vermont Country Store. I have paid much more for sheets that always disappointed me. My search is over and I will be ordering these sheets for each bed in my home. Thank you ! August 11, 2015
Best Sheets Ever I have been searching for crisp sheets, the ones that feel like the kind that you took off the line after drying in the sun that were stiff and ... well crisp, for years. These are those sheets. I feel like crisp sheet lovers are a discriminated against minority these days. Sheets are getting softer and silkier. And I hate that feeling for sheets. So I adore these sheets. We bought them for the house we're moving into next year. But I'm so sad. Our bed that we've not moved yet is a split top, that each side can be raised or lowered separately, so it takes a special split sheet. And of course these don't come in a split sheet version. I could be OK with that, because the company that sells the unfortunately soft and silky bottom sheet at least makes them fit snugly. So I use a different brand for the top sheet and pillow cases. I wish (Yoo Hoo - Vermont Country Store) I wish these sheets could be bought individually so i could get just the top sheets and pillow cases. But they still get 5 stars because they are just what I was looking for. August 2, 2015
Truly like my Grandmother's line-dried sheets We'll add our voice to those who love these sheets. My grandmother had cotton sheets like these, always white, line dried at her farm in Maine. These bring back the memories of slipping into cool sheets on a warm summer evening. Wrinkles? Who cares? My one request would be that you either make the full-sized flat sheet larger or allow purchase of flat and fitted separately. It is a bit too small for two people. July 26, 2015
Clothline Crisp Sheet Is Adorable I love my new sheets. They're great for the summer because they are thin and crisp. "crisp" does not mean "harsh." These sheets are, in fact, gloriously comfortable, they just have some body to them. Outstanding product at a great price!" Definitely getting a good night sleep on these! I would recommend this product to a friend. July 21, 2015
Nice crisp sheet with no fiber coming out we have been using this sheet . this is much better than high thread count sheets we have been buying. there is no fiber coming out and hand feel becomes amazing after first wash. as this is 100% cotton suggest to iron to avoid wrinkles. happy to buy another color now.

Heavily Wrinkled I have been hunting for good old fashioned sheets, and based on the reviews printed here, I decided to purchase these sheets. I wish I had not spent the money. When they arrived I thought they had been heavily starched, when I washed them to use on the bed they were a wrinkled mess. The bottom fitted sheet is not too bad because it is stretched over the mattress, however, the top sheet is wrinkled beyond imagination, and the pillow cases are just not acceptable at all, they look like two pieces of paper which I have crumpled in my hand to throw away. Right at this minute I am washing the pillow cases again to see if I can iron them when damp to get some of the wrinkles out. Even my husband, who notices absolutely NOTHING asked me if the sheets were ever going to get soft! This product is not good enough for Vermont Country Stores and I do not recommend it. July 5, 2015

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Clothesline Crisp Sheet Set …

"The feel of these sheets is so rare - crisp, dry, cool in the summer, toasty in cooler weather. We also love the sound of these sheets as they rustle and crackle under the blanket. So glad we found them at The Vermont Country Store!" - Ilze, New Orleans, LA

"I love these sheets so much, I ordered a second set. With every wash they get softer. I love the crisp and pure cotton feel." - Barbara Burg, Panama City, FL

"Sooooo happy to find these. I've gone to great lengths to try and find crisp sheets. Even with the clothesline ban I dry my sheets outside on a clothes rack. (And, at one time I did have an illegal line my husband put up on the patio.) I do not dry my sheets in the dryer. Thank you, thank you, thank you for these wonderful sheets." - Barbara Brown, Reseda, CA

"These are the best sheets EVER. I need to buy more since I never want to sleep on anything else. I just wish you could get extra pillow cases." - Amanda, Schenectady, NY

"For 20 years I've been looking for percale sheets like those my mother used. These sheets are that same smooth, cool fabric that I remember. Other high-thread-count fabrics do not come close to the comfort of this percale. I'll be thanking you every night of my life." - Janet, Perryville, MD

"I finally found the sheets I've been looking for!! I have purchased all-cotton sheets from another catalog for years, but they have changed of late. The fitted sheet is so deep that it is always wrinkled and messy-looking. Not all of us have 18-inch mattresses, for heaven's sake. Who needs an 18-inch mattress anyway, for that matter? But these clothesline crisp sheets fit my "much too big mattress" with a taut snap!! Yahoo... I have only washed them once, and could not put them outside due to all the oak pollen, but I know that they will be a wonderful addition to my linen closet. Many, many thanks!!" - Deborah, Alexandria, VA

"I love these sheets! They feel like the ones I grew up with. I just wish the top sheet was about a foot longer because of the deeper beds. I'm planning on buying more!" - karen warner, richmond, TX

"I am buying my second set. I have been searching for crisp sheets; love them. Now I need you to sell the pillow cases separately, in addition to the set, so I can buy extra." - Maureen, Winchester, MA

"These are absolutely the best sheets ever! I am slowly going to collect as many sets as I can so I never have to use another kind. Terrific product that everyone should have! Thank you, VCS!" - Susan, Orange, CT

"These are fantastic! Potential buyers should understand that "crisp" does not mean "harsh." These sheets are, in fact, gloriously comfortable, they just have some body to them. Outstanding product at a great price!" - C. Swope, Churchville, VA

"I've been searching for years and years for these sheets. I love them so much that I ordered more for myself and some for my son and his wife. I will probably get more because if you stop selling them I'll never find them again. The only place I slept on these kind of sheets recently was in Italy. High-thread-count sheets are vastly overrated. They lack the thick, rich feel of the Clothesline Crisp sheets. I look forward each night to climbing into bed with these sheets. It's like heaven. Thank you !" - CAROL ANN CASEY, Huntington Station, NY

"I am an admitted sheet-a-holic! I have more sheet sets than I can count... and I no longer use any of them! These sheets are the only ones I'll put on my bed! I have waited awhile to write this because I wanted to be sure they'd keep their crispness through several washings and a lot of using... and they do! I'm very fussy about my bedding and these sheets are by far the best I've ever found. If you're thinking about it, think no longer... just order!"- Barbara Richards, Miami, FL

"The Clothesline Crisp White Sheets are the best!! The slender style was perfect for my antique bed. I agree with others that I would love to be able to purchase additional pillowcases."-Diane, Fultonville, NY

"These sheets are fantastic! I've just ordered my second set- so glad they now come in colors, too. They feel just like I remember from my childhood. Sheets like these are the reason my sisters and I used to call clean sheet day "wiggly night." They feel so crsip and fresh . Yes, I do hang them out to dry- weather-permitting!" - Erin Jones, West Winfield, NY

"I hesitated to buy these for quite some time - mainly about the cost - but once I tried them, I absolutely love them and know they are worth every penny. I can't wait to hang them outside (it's cold here in Maine)!" - Josephine Libby, East Machias, ME

"I had sheets like these when I went to college in the early 1960s. We didn't have fitted sheets back then. I used to hang them lengthwise on a clothesline in the dormitory laundry room after washing. They always dried flat and smooth as if they were ironed. These Clothesline Crisp Sheets remind me of that. I may even put a clothesline in my garage to hang dry them." - Rosalind Rogoff, San Ramon, CA

"These are the best! They really are just like the old-fashioned comfortable sheets of yesteryear. I have a few percale sheets handed down to me from my mother but they were not fitted and were sized for a 3/4 bed. Loved them so much though that I used them occasionally. When I saw the Clothesline Crisp Sheets in your catalog, I doubted that they really could be anything like Mom's. To my happy surprise, they are. I use no other now; just wash them and put them right back on the bed. Will be getting another set soon." - Diane, Fultonville, NY

"Yes, we love these sheets! They just keep getting better and better with every laundering - smoother and softer to the touch, yet still crisp. The fit of the bottom sheet is superb. We just wish the queen size top sheet was larger to provide a more generous side drop and tuck-in at the foot." - Kay, Sherman Oaks, CA

"I just ordered my third set of these wonderful sheets. I was skeptical at first because I have not found a smooth, crisp cotton sheet in years. They are perfect and make for the best night's sleep. I always dry them outside. That fresh-air smell along with the crisp cotton feel makes for a great night's sleep! I will not have any other sheets on our beds.Our guest enjoy them, too!" - Michele, Springfield, VA

"So thankful to find these sheets!! We have spent tons of money on more expensive sheets promising the same crisp feel, and while they were crisp and had the exact feel we were looking for originally, they have since changed their fabric formula, and now have a similiar touch, will not hold up to use, i.e., washing!! (holes and rips). Hopefully these sheets will not disappoint - so far we are very pleased. Will definitely order more IF they stand up to use!!" - Susan Wyatt, Florence, SC

"These sheets are THE best! My husband was skeptical when I purchased these sheets that they would maintain the level of crispness. But you have made him a believer. I would highly recommend these sheets to anyone who remembers Mom's sheets." - Laura McConnell, Eastford, CT

"I, too, am ordering my second set of these great sheets. Wonderfully comfy. I am so tired of the used-Kleenex feel of the high thread count sheets." - Sue Hoffman, Jackson, WY
