These sheets were super soft and cozy when we first used them. I did NOT wash them before putting them on my bed. Other reviewers indicated a smell, but the set I received was perfectly fine. As is the nature of this material, it did pill up some after a week of use, and when we washed them, we had a bunch of fibers in the lint catcher. The second week, they pilled up even more, again lots of fibers in the lint catcher, but then they started to smooth out again. We really like these sheets even if it did take a couple washings to get them back to new feeling. They are soft, warm and comfortable.
I've been purchasing the Sealy Best-Fit sheets for a few years now with a very tall mattress (right at 20") that's hard to find sheets to fit that don't cost an arm & leg and don't feel like sandpaper every night. Tossed the sheets into the wash before use as recommend and they pilled like crazy. I had blue fuzz everywhere. The sheets were cozy - it was quite cold out, and the fitted sheet fit well, we'll see how they hold up after a few more washes.
I should have listened to the other reviews relating to these sheets. I received the order quickly after purchasing; I ordered 2 sets. They were shipped separately, which is not a big deal, but costly when I wanted to return for a full refund. I washed one set immediately so I could put them on our bed. They pilled more than I have ever seen a flannel set pill and as a result, there was lint all over our bedroom. Some of the stitching had come apart and they are very thin. The sheets are scratchy while lying in them; it's as though you are lying on a beach! I have washed them three times and they have softened a bit, but not, I repeat NOT worth the price. I was very disappointed because I assumed the Sealy brand would be good quality, not so much. When I asked about a return, I was told I would only get partial because I had opened the one pack and used them (how else can you tell if sheets are going to be nice & hold up after washing?) and I was going to have to pay for shipping to send both boxes back, not worth the expense and hassle, I would only receive half of my money back anyway. Do not buy these sheets!
I got the sheets, loved the color and put them on my bed after laundering. They fit well and were very plush. A week later I laundered the sheets and when putting them back on the bed the bottom sheet tore. I don't have any paperwork to return them so I am out of luck on this purchase.
I love these sheets! They're great quality and I would recommend them 100%! The pockets are deep, actually a lot deeper than I need for my mattress, but they never slip or come off. They haven't pilled up at all, too. Overall, these are the best flannel sheets I've ever purchased.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A little darker than the picture, but really nice.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality, thick, doesn't pill up.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate description; just what I was expecting to get.
Although the sheets have really deep pockets and fit well, and they are very comfortable, they are really pilling especially on the bottom sheet around your feet. Have already washed them three times, so who knows what the future holds.
These sheets are just ok. The price is good, much lower than what you can find in stores. They are soft and warm but after 1 wash they are already pilling. Not sure how they will hold up over time but for what we paid we are satisfied. The color of the grey is darker than what we thought, more of a charcoal but it goes well with our decor.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Darker - we ordered the grey and it is more of a dark grey or charcoal color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Ok - they already started pilling after one wash but are warm and soft
I love the flannel sheet set; they are so warm and cuddly. I am very pleased with how they are made, especially the fitted sheet. The only thing I am not completely satisfied with is the fact that there are a few odd-colored threads woven through the sheets and pillow cases that show up easily because they are blue and green, whereas, the sheet set is pale pink. Since I bought the sheets for myself, I don't mind the "foreign" threads woven into the pink fabric, but if I had bought them for a gift, I would not be very happy.
