These sheets are nice and soft after one wash, a decent fit (a little big on the edges but no big deal) in the King size. Very warm. For me these were an easy choice because of the beautiful pattern and color to coordinate in my room. I find that most flannel sheets are Christmas or winter themed, I was happy to find these in a gray paisley pattern to look chic all winter on the bed. The gray in person is deeper and darker than the picture shows. A lot of lint came off the first time in the dryer
The sheets did very well in the first laundry, there did not appear to be any shrinkage, but there likely was a little. The weight and construction quality of the sheets are very good if not excellent. The top sheet could perform as a light blanket in the summer. I had to laugh when my wife climbed into bed the first night I placed them on the bed....all I heard were sighs of pleasure! I guess you can say I scored some points for buying these!
These sheets are plush, soft, and enjoyed by both my husband and me. My hubbie commented about their quality after 1 night of sleep. The silver print blends quite nicely in our gray and yellow bedroom. We bought 2 sets and are very pleased with the purchase.
I bought 2 sets of the German flannel sheets at the same time - the paisley and the pinstripe. The paisley ones are heavy weight and washed beautifully with no pilling. They created a moderate amount of drier lint the first 2 times I washed them, but it reduced dramatically by the third washing. They are wonderfully soft and substantial. The pinstripe set is terrible. They created a huge amount of drier lint and piled like crazy. I have washed them 3 times and they just get worse. They are so thin you can almost see through them. I plan on buying a second set of the paisley, but absolutely do not recommend the pinstripe.
I ordered the soft grey color. My husband and I sleep in a king bed but we each use a twin size duvet to sleep under. We are both German and are used to sleeping with a duvet as the only bedding without extra sheets or blankets. These duvets meet our every need. The fabric is thick, soft and luxurious. The ties are practical, (I have sewn my own in other duvets). And the duvets washed easily and well. I appreciate the extra buttons on the large opening so that my husband doesn't kick through them. These cozy duvets make it so hard to get out of bed in the morning. : ) I only wish this company also sold regular cotton sheets on overstock.com for our summer needs. I would buy them in a heart beat.
having just bought a new foam mattress, I wanted new sheets. I have two sets of flannel sheets that I have had for so many years, that I thought it was time for a change! Even though we live in Atlanta, and the air is on almost year round (I'm of 'an age'!), I rotate those two pairs year round. They are tissue thin in some spots. I researched a lot of sheets and how to care for them. I did pre-wash these in cold water with 1/2 cup vinegar, dried almost dry in dryer, and they have been great. No pilling, definitely stretch to fit the 16 inch mattress. I've washed them about 5 times since I got them, still in cold water, with just a splash of vinegar (I'm not adding that the next time), then dry in the dryer. The only complaint I have, and it's probably due to the fact that my other flannels are so worn, that these feel so thick, I will occasionally wake up and kick them off. Removing the top blanket on my side fixes that problem. My DH is snuggled under like a bug in a rug, so it's definitely my issue! I plan to buy the silver set (I bought the green - nice calm shade), before they are gone. You won't be disappointed!
Bought 1 pair very soft and beautiful so I ordered another pair. Washed both pairs put on our spare bedroom mattress and the other we slept on. Well let me tell you where your feet lay that became fuzz ball city. So I washed them for the 3rd time and now that area is rough. I have picked the fuzz off and washed them for the 4th time and still rough. If I could send them back I would. $** x 2 for a set of flannel sheets I should be smacked for buying. Not worth the money will not recommend
Heavy , and oh, so soft.... we have purchased German sheets from you in the past and are still nice. In our cold Northern winters these are perfect... We have 14" thick mattress and these fit with room to spare.... Great product... Contemplating buying another set. JM
I bought the paisley sheets after reading the reviews. These sheets are thick and yummy. There was excess lint in the dryer after the first wash, but that is to be expected. Crawling into bed in the winter is wonderful. They are thick and soft.
Older and wiser, I finally learned about quality flannel after throwing out items that fell apart in the wash or lasted only a few months. These sheet sets are German flannel and you can't find better than German flannel. The print and color are beautiful. They fit our deep mattresses as well as our standards because of the expert craftsmanship on the fitted sheets. Wash them and they just come out softer. These will last and I am in love with them for all the reasons stated as well as because I won't have to keep buying and replacing "stuff". These are an investment worth making. Wish I had found them years ago!
