Love these Sheets. I washed them before putting them on the Bed in cold water I also put them out on the Clothesline to dry, it was breezy that day and they were so soft. I have bought a lot of sheets from OVERSTOCK and LOVE each pair of sheets I always get white in color. these sheets are really deep pocket and stay on the Bed. People that buy these Sheets need to read the Instructions enclosed before they use these pocket sheets they will go on the bed BETTER.
I had ordered this set and received promptly. However, the fitted sheet was boxed wrong and looked like it might have been for a full size bed instead of a queen size. I had no problem returning the product and received the correct size which installed easily and fit perfect. They are also very very warm on a cold night and you don't have the shivers when getting into bed. I like these sheets very much!
These sheets are very warm....which I like/wanted. But now that I have used them all winter and washed them numerous times, they have pilled a lot more than I had hoped they would. I expected some because of the material, but I almost feel like I should order another set for next winter. Don't know that I will want to use them another season.
I bought these for the extra deep pocket capability. My mattress and topper are 18" tall. The fitted sheet fits like a glove. They are nice and soft, and made of a nice medium weight material. The edges are made with an extra panel and has thick elastic bands that help anchor the sheet in place. I have never had it come up off the mattress. The sheet fits well too. Has not pilled yet. I did wash with vinegar on the first wash as advised, and now wash in cold, and dry in low heat. VERY happy with them.
Living in Florida, I've never had flannel sheets, but we do have some cold nights so thought I'd give them a try. I wash and dry them on the gentle cycle, NO fabric softener and put a cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle to prevent "pilling". So far they've been laundered about six or seven times and are still like new... no pills. I ordered a set of "German Flannel" sheets for a friend and they fell apart and left mountains of lint and fuzz all over his house after two washings. Hopefull I can return those and get him a set of these instead!
I love the size, and they fit a very deep mattress with no problem. I grew up in Michigan and I have always been a big flannel sheet fan. They were so cozy with those Midwest winters! These sheets did not wash or dry well (cold wash/rinse, medium setting on dryer temp). They did not shrink or fade but they did pill up a bit and feel a little "scratchy" to me, but I have very sensitive skin. I don't normally use a liquid fabric softener and perhaps if I had, these sheets would have washed a little better. So in our household the jury is still out on these sheets. The price was great, the sheets fit great (and the top sheet is really big), but they didn't get that soft, worn flannel feel.
I've had a hard time finding extra deep sheets for my pillow top mattress. NO MORE. These sheets are a perfect fit. Even have a little wiggle room in the event of shrinkage from the dryer. I will be back. Hopefully next time around, white will be in stock.
I bought two of these blankets - one in King and one in Queen size. the quality is very good and the size is better than I expected. Big enough to pull all the way up and still have enough to tuck under at the foot of the bed. The blanket weight is better than I expected as I seen some reviews saying it was light or thin. I think it is just right - not to heavy but thick enough to keep you warm. I am very happy with these blankets and know it will keep us warm during our new england winter. The only think I would have liked is if it had the satin material as a finished edge at the top of the blanket instead it is just a thread binding all four sides - I guess you have to pay much more to get that. Will definetly recommend and buy again.
While these sheets looked nice on-line...I got them home, took them out of the package and proceeded to wash them. There were SO many loose strings (some were even different colors! Not the purple that I had gotten at all), AND basically poor workmanship. I washed these sheets THREE times before putting them on my mattress and they still felt rough and scratchy. I do NOT recommend these for the price.
Finally I have found a pair of flannel sheets that have deep enough pockets to not come untucked from under the mattress. I have a thick pillow top mattress and a four inch foam topper I added to it. I have struggled with finding any sheets that would fit and not slip off the corners. Not only are the sheets big enough, they are very comfortable too. They might not be as thick as my Northern Nights flannel sheets were but they do fit the bed and are warm and toasty when it is cool in the house. I did do something different this time, I read the washing instructions before washing them, I have to say if you follow the directions there is no pilling on the sheets and they come out of the dryer just as big as they went in, no shrinking so far. I would recommend these sheets, I bought a set for my guest room queen bed too as that has the 4 inch topper too and finding sheets to stay put is difficult even without the extra plush mattress. I would give these sheets 10 starts if I could!
I have a tempurpedic bed and I have never found a set of sheets to fit it very well. This is the first set of flannel that I have bought. and I love how warm it is. The fit of course isnt perfect. The corners stay on ok, its the excess that will slide over in the middle and one side will rise but I will take it. This set is pretty good.
