I just moved into my own apartment and my sister bought me these sheets along with other stuff a housewarming gift. I have to say my sister has really good taste and the print is absolutely beautiful. The colors are soft and the print is subtle giving my bedroom a nice relaxing feel. I have a solid white comforter so I pull down the flat sheet over the top part of the comforter so you can see the beautiful print. The quality is great as well, so soft and warm. There was a lot of lint in the first wash, which my sister said was normal because she bought similar German flannel sheets. Besides the dryer lint catcher being full, it didn't ruin the sheets or anything like that. It actually made the sheets softer. But after the 2nd wash there is not as much lint. I think I may buy a solid color as a back up sheet, or maybe mix and match the look. This is the first time I ever had a Queen size bed so I need to have sheets when the other set is in the laundry.
We use flannel year round because we LOVE the coziness. I've been called "the queen of comfort" because I KNOW COMFORT! Too hot in summer? NO WAY if you keep your t-stat set to 67 degrees. I own at least 12 sets of flannel sheets for use in the master and 2 guest rooms, so I know flannel. THESE GERMAN MADE SHEETS ARE LIKE CRAWLING INTO A COCOON! High quality, heavy, inviting, warm, and OH SO SOFT. I have purchased other German flannels from different retailers and they cost twice as much per set. If you love flannel, you'll love these.
I ordered one set of these sheets and put them on my bed ias soon as they arrived. They are thick, soft and very warm. I liked them so much, I ordered a second set within a week so I can keep these sheets on my bed most of the winter. They wash very well, maintain their shape and shrink very little in the dryer. They have only become more soft and fluffy over the past few months. If I could rationalize purchasing a third set I would! But how many sets of sheets can you put on a bed?!
These flannel sheets are amazingly warm and thick yet soft and super comfortable. They have washed very well, without fading or getting thin like some other flannels, and the print is really nice. I'd highly recommend these to everyone.
This is what you want in a flannel sheet set: thick, non-pilling, cozy and substantial. Having purchased one set for my daughter, I realized by comparison how terribly flimsy most commonly available flannel products are made. I went back to purchase a set for our queen bed and used this as the standard for buying additional duvets and sheet sets for our home. This will last a lifetime. Great gift for weddings or other special occasions.
I am 60yo and have been sleeping on flannel sheets my whole life. These are the best sheets I have ever seen. The are so thick and soft they are heaven to sleep on. I have only washed them 3 times but came out fine. I am buying another set.
