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.
Wow, these are the softest sheets yet! They are a new addition so we would have more than one pair of flannels. Our other flannel sheets were purchased on the big O years ago and were 100% Portugal cotton and are still holding up but I wanted another pair so here we are. I did do the wash in vinegar thing, I have no idea what that was supposed to do as I always wash on cold and dry on low. The sheets of course did the massive lint thing but that is always expected on the first few washings. If any of you have problems with pilling on anything from sheets to blankets to jackets, may I suggest getting a slicker brush from the pet store. Just brush away the lint balls and everything comes out like silky fur. But these sheets are a great find and I hope to purchase another set soon.
