Lenzuolo is masculine and its plural is lenzuola, feminine. There's a bunch or words like that: http://italian.about.com/library/fare/blfare169a.htm http://www.lifeinitaly.com/italian/nouns-gender (See No. 8)

Or at least its most common plural form is feminine. I did see some references that i lenzuoli is less common but does exist (duolingo did accept it)
