I will start by saying that these sheets are very thick and very warm. In addition to that, they are deep-pocketed and great for those with thick mattresses and pillow tops/feather beds (no need to buy a size up). That being said, there are a few things worth noting before you decide whether or not to go with this set. The biggest thing is that these are 100% polyester. This may seem like a minor detail but chances are you are used to sleeping on cotton sheets. While they are warm, the texture feels a little strange on bare skin and takes some getting used to. Moderate or greater friction can become quite unpleasant, though this shouldn't cause problems for those that don't move around much in bed. As at least one reviewer has mentioned, these do have an odd synthetic smell to them that does not wash away (at least not after two cycles using extra detergent). This might be off putting for some, though hasn't been much of a bother for me personally. In the future I will probably just stick with flannel. This isn't a bad set and would probably last many years. The polyester is durable and doesn't shrink, pill, or dissolve into your lint trap, but at the end of the day I think there are more comfortable cold-weather sheets for the price.
Have had these on our bed for a couple days and really love them! Just ordered second set for our guest room. The quality is very soft and comfy. Also ordered the cheaper ones, different brand, and for the ****savings, would have gotten two sets of these instead if I had a chance to compare before purchase. The cheaper ones, although soft, feel, well, cheaper, nylony, plasticky when you squeeze them in your hand. These are just pure soft! Would absolutely buy again!
I like a cool bedroom for sleeping. These sheets are fantastic. Micro fleece will now be the bedding for winter! Flannel is moved to spring and fall. These micro fleece sheets are warm and fit the mattress well. I have not washed them yet though. It would be nice to make a review 2-3 months after any purchase for a true opinion of a product.
These are the most awesome cold weather sheets on the market. Soft as a feather and so warm and toasty when you crawl in the bed at night. Wash up beautifully and very quick to dry even without a dryer. Yes, they do have an initial odor, but 2 washings and it is gone.
A few years ago I was so excited to get a set of microfleece sheets from overstock for my full size bed, they fit great, wore awesome and were super super soft. My boyfriend and I moved in together we got a queen size bed and I thought in these cold CO nights it would be great to get another set. We bought these because of the color. First of all the blue is darker and more boring blue colored than in the photo so I was a bit disappointed about that. This will be our 2nd winter with them and as soon as we washed them they actually have spots wear they have been burned by the dryer -- this never happened with my other pair and I used the same dryer. And they're not very soft anymore, they look old and pilled like fleece gets when it's worn out. Again the other sheets I bought never did this-- and sometimes I make excuses as to why i need to sleep in the guest bedroom just to sleep on those sheets....http://www.overstock.com/Bedding-Bath/Microfleece-Sheet-Set/4702277/product.html?searchidx=0 I guess I was spoiled...
I had ordered other microfleece sheets from another company, and they shedded and pilled so long- even after multiple washings, I was finding red fleece on my clothing! These, however, do NOT do that, which is great. They are soft, generously cut, very warm and snuggly on those cold winter nights. The colors are nice too. Excellent sheets for any price.
I really liked these sheets--they were soft and warm, and I never noticed a smell. I was skeptical of synthetic fleece sheets but after a few nights I was sold! HOWEVER: I just washed them for the second time and the flat sheet ripped big holes in two places. This was in a brand new front loading machine (no agitator). Needless to say I am really disappointed. I guess the fabric just can't hold up to washing.
These sheets are very soft and warm. They cuddle you and feel great. After buying the first set, came back and bought a second set. Colors have not faded nor have they pilled. Do be aware that these are a somwhat sloppy fit. The pillow cases swallow our pillows. We don't care as our bed is not a showcase - it is to sleep in. Want to be cuddled in soft warm sheets? BUY THESE!
I was looking for a second set of queen flannel sheets (which I love and bought through O.com) when I came across this Microfleece set. My mattress is about 12" high and these will handle 2 or more inches in height. Even with the extra material they stay tucked in. They feel great the first moment you slide in bed and keep you toasty. They are warm! Try them, you'll like 'em.
