Clothesline Crisp Sheet Set 4.1 5 41 41
Nice hand, but skimpy on the fabric These sheets are nice and crisp, and are better than any I have found elsewhere, but they are made so skimpy that the top sheet only hangs over the edges of a standard (Full) bed a few inches. They will cause fights! For the price they should be more generously sized. I need more sheets, but still looking. July 24, 2014
GOOD BASIC SHEETS The sheets are ample crisp and comfortable. They are not heavy or too light. Grandmothers sheets though I doubt it. They're made well and appear durable. They will need several washings to soften up. I would order again if available in pink. May 23, 2014
wrong ones I had purchased some sheets from you some time ago that have remained crisp through many washings. The bottom sheet did not have a deep pocket (on original purchase) and the sheets stayed tight on the bed. The sheets in this last purchase are a bit rough and have the deep pockets which allow the bottom sheet to wrinkle up at night. I wish that there were sheets that stayed tight on a mattress that is about ten inches deep. They are either too large or too small. I want that crisp almost ironed feeling for my sheets. I have not found that in this last purchase. Thanks April 17, 2014
Reminds Me of Home! These sheets remind me of my Mother and how sheets felt coming down from our cloths line in back yard while growing up in Maryland. They are clean and crisp and little rough...but they are so nice to sleep on! They can get a little wrinkley if you leave them lay in the dryer too long so take them out and fold them as soon as they are dry. If you are real picky about your sheets then you may want to iron them. April 5, 2014
I'm in love... ...with my Clothesline Crisp Sheets. Heavenly! Doubt that I'll buy any other kind again. I've washed them only twice, so we'll see how they hold up. So far, I'm a happy camper - and, yes, I'd take them camping, along with my Vermont Country Store bedspreads. March 21, 2014
Coming Back for More I bought these sheets hoping for the crisp, clean feel that I remembered from long ago. They were a bit pricey for me, but I decided to take a chance with just one set. I put them on the bed right out of the package, and that night I got the best sleep I have had in years. I didn't find them stiff at all. In fact, it was wonderful not having those soft sheets that can feel like bugs on your skin.. or at least that is the way they feel to me. I'm coming back for my second set. March 11, 2014
Just like my mother's! I had read these were TOO stiff, but took a chance. These sheets took about three washings to get them unstiff enough, but now they are perfect and I'm going to order several more sets to make sure they don't change manufacturers. March 5, 2014
Grandma's Clothesline Crisp Sheets I purchased these sheets about 4 years ago for my bed. I would take them off, wash them and put them back on the bed, so they got used quite a lot. The more you washed them the softer they get, but they still stay crisp. About a month ago, I was making my bed and pulled the top sheet up and it ripped in the middle of the sheet, not on a seam. I called the store and they gave me a shipping label and asked me to return the set. I returned my old sheets and within a few weeks the store sent me a brand new set! I know that Vermont Country Store stands 100% behind their products. They have items that made me very happy when I was younger that bring back fond memories. The only thing I can say is a downside to the sheet set is that they are really stiff at first, but after a few washes they relax somewhat. They always seem very wrinkled even when you take them right out of the dryer and put them on the bed. Maybe they wouldn't be so wrinkled if I hung them on the clothesline to dry like Grandma!

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
