Slender Clothesline Crisp Egyptian Cotton Sheet Set
Slender Sheetsâ¦A Great Find!
After struggling with sheets much too big for my old fashioned double-bed, while browsing through a Vermont Country Store catalog, I spotted "Clothesline Crisp Egyptian Cotton Sheets, Now Tailored to Fit Old-Standard Mattresses." The sheets are a perfect fit for my bed, The 'clothes crisp' fabric is just that_'clothesline crisp' with a wonderful feel.

A bit too crisp
The fit is good for low profile beds but they are so "crisp" they are uncomfortable- even after washing. I'm disappointed.

A RARE FIND
I have been searching for YEARS to find fitted sheets that actually fit MY mattress. I am so angry that FITTED sheet manufacturers have no interest in the HUGE MARKET of people who own mattresses that do NOT require 15 to 18 inch pockets. These deep pocketed fitted sheets are miserable to sleep on. They are so loose that each night they bunch up and can actually become painful as you try to position yourself among the extra folds.
I was very excited to find these sheets. They are well made, crisp, and I love their super white color. Best of all, the fitted sheet fits mattresses 9" and thinner. However, they come out of the dryer very wrinkled, which may bother some consumers. Additionally, the fitted sheet was ALMOST too small for what I thought was my 9" mattress (might be a 10"? I probably measured wrong ). Nonetheless, I found its being perhaps too snug an absolute thrill !!!!
All in all, I am very satisfied with this sheet set. The "shallow" fitted sheet makes this product a rare find.

I bought a set of these sheets because of the smaller fitted sheet size, my mattress is just about 9 inches deep and these fit great. They seem to be well-made. My first impression is that they're more crisp that I thought they would be. I imagine they'll get softer with each washing. Even so, they're very comfortable and I think they will wear well. I'm not sure if I'm getting the full "grandmother effect" since mine always ironed hers, and I didn't. I'll try that after the next washing.

Great sheets for an older mattress
I have been waiting at least 2 years to re-order these sheets - was so excited that you had them in the catalog again. It is so good to have a sheet that actually fits my mattress and does not pouch and

Best sheets ever
We have been looking for sheets like this for years. Now we've found them! They are crisp but not stiff, and have a nice weight to them, neither too thin nor too heavy. Of course, one set is never enough...our second arrived today.

Really Cool and Crisp
Ordered a king set for a memory foam mattress - they fit perfectly! Then ordered 4 more sets for a vacation rental house in a warm climate and guests love them. The sheets wash beautifully and the feel of sleeping in them is delightfully cool and crisp.
Only reason these are not getting 5 stars is that they are not wrinkle-free no matter how quickly they are removed from the dryer. (Would love to try hanging them out to dry in the breeze but no space.) So if you don't mind that they are not perfectly wrinkle-free, they are really excellent sheets.

Mom loved them!
I found these sheets for my Mom-in-law at VCS and shipped them off to her. She loves them! It feels so good to have pleased her! I can generally count on VCS for good-quality merchandise!
