We have had these sheets on our bed almost the entire winter. I usually need an electric blanket but the flannel keeps me warm. It also didn't shrink like others have after being washed and dried. I did have lots of lint in the lint trap the first few washings, but that's normal for flannel sheets.
I always wash sheets prior to first use. These already look several washes old and a corner seam split open. It won't be difficult to fix, but it's a hassle and I shouldn't have to repair "brand new" sheets. They are fairly soft, but look well used after one washing. These were purchased for my daughter, and she likes them, but I am not impressed.

This is my first purchase from O, and it will probably be my last unless I already know the product. I wanted Christmas-themed flannel sheets. No one had them so I tried O. I found these snowflake sheets, Their color and theme suggest cold temperatures which is a good thing since I live in the desert and never have snow. Our winters are in the 60's! I have washed the sheets twice, and they have already pilled. They also have started to fade. I don't expect these sheets to last more than two seasons which makes them pretty expensive sheets. My other flannels still look good after at least five years.
These sheets are all flannel sheets should be -- thick, warm, and fluffy. Plus, a lovely pattern/color, perfect for the cold winter nights. And with their price, they are absolutely unbeatable. We have a very thick pillow-top mattress and the ultra-deep fitted pocket sheet fits like a dream. These sheets are wonderful for curling up for your "long winter's nap"!
I love the warmth and feel of these sheets, but there are some construction issues for me. I bought a "full" size and this set is huge; more like a Queen size maybe. The sheets drag the floor on both sides. Also one of the pillowcases appears to be an irregular. One of the corners is folded onto itself and is stitched that way. I may take it apart and restitch it if I can do so without totally ruining it. I always wash the sheets before use and didn't notice these flaws until after they were washed, or I probably would have sent them back. But all that aside--they are super soft and warm.
I recently purchased this flannel sheet set and am very satisfied with the price and the quality. The sheets are soft and wonderful for cold winter nights. I only have one complaint. The color shown on the picture is not at all what the merchandise looks. The sheets I received have a muted gray blue color like a dull winter sky. I was hoping for something a lot brighter. But since the product in itself is good I decided to live with the color. Otherwise my purchase would have been perfect.
These sheets are a very good value. They had an odor when I opened the package but I washed them and they were just fine. They fit the bed well, nice pocket depth and the are nice weight flannel. They are very soft, warm and cozy. A very nice value.
Pros: Sheets are wider than most which makes them easier to tuck in. Very think and soft fabric Cons: Darker and more gray-blue than expected from picture Very heavy chemical smell upon opening. I had to was them three times before I dared to put them on my daughter's bed, but seemed fine after that.
Loved these flannels which are so soft and a heavier weight than the other set of flannels that I have. I ended up ordering them in the other color (beige) that O offered. They wash very nice and come out feeling and looking great. After one season of use so far no icky pills. I order king size for a queen size bed as I like the top sheet to be larger and just tuck in the bottom fitted sheet. In the past I've had issues with flannel shrinking, so I always order the larger size.
Quality of bedding was very good and the sheets are lovely and cosy. Very disappointed with the actual colour as they looked much lighter in the advert. The colour is almost grey blue instead if the anticipated light blue. Had to order 2 sizes bigger as the queen size I required wasn't available, (hence affecting the cost). Oversees postage and added taxes also made the overall cost pretty high.
I'm very happy with these sheets.. They are soft and good quality fabric. I've washed them several times and they have not shrunk or faded and just keep getting softer. They fit perfectly. I like that they have elastic all the way around to really stay secure under the mattress.
Bought these sheets after seeing them at another store for more than double the price. When they arrived they were very pretty, true to picture and soft. I immediately washed the sheets and put them on the bed. The sheets were very comfortable, although not deep enough to fit my Calif King mattress but stayed on okay. However, they immediately started pilling and have made a mess all over the blankets, comforter, floor, my clothes. It is such a bummer . The last flannel sheets we had lasted for years and never pilled once. /So glad I did not pay $120.00 for the exact same set just to toss in a linen cabinet. :-((
We bought these for our daughter's bed, and they are very soft and cozy. They are however, a very dark, grey/blue, nearly slate blue, not the pretty light blue that is in the photo. More boy-ish than girly. That is the only negative, as the wear and fit are great, and as I mentioned they are soft. My daughter loves them. I think they are a good value for the price.
The pic clearly shows lavender sheets. There is no COLOR option when ordering, only size. This sheet set is DUSTY BLUE .. NOT PURPLE!! I threw them in the wash ionce they got here without looking carefully so I could put them on the bed with lovely purple afghan..now I'm stuck!
