By far, this is #1 in quality. I wish I had bought all three from this brand. This one pair will be my favorite. Very heavy weight and good thickness. The other two pair were from a different brand, they are ok, but wish I had bought all three from here.
Wow! sleeping toasty warm at night under the softest, thickest flannel! Snuggling in these sheets is like going to sleep inside a hug. The only comment even a little unfavorable is that the top/flat sheet could be just a little wider, fall a little farther down the side of the bed. But these sheets are very well made, and oddly sturdy, to be so soft. I expect to be using them a very long time!
It is not flannel sheet weather so I have not used them yet. This is the first time I have bought sheets from a dealer other than Lands End. They are comparable in every way. Excellent quality and thickness that guarantees warmth on cold nights. I washed them in preparation for use and they came out of the dryer soft and fluffy. I got expensive quality sheets at a fraction of the price. I would recommend them to anyone who wants soft, warn flannel to keep toasty warm at night.
Have bought from Overstock the lighter weight "German Flannel" for years, (which by the way no one I know in Germany ever heard of German flannel). The previous sets pilled and shed terribly and wore out quickly. (Here's an earlier purchase: Ultra-soft / Heavyweight 6-ounce German Flannel Hemstitch Sheet Set Moss/Queen) These sheets are thick and have a heft to them, feel sturdy and the stitching appears to be solid. The sage color I have looks more like a high desert sage compared to the photo which looks more like cooking sage. Made in China, but don't let that deter you. I would buy them again. After two washes they look as if they'll last. They are the best so far. Ordering from outside the US? Shipping to Germany was a breeze and flawless.
