I am fussy about flannel sheets. I don't like stiff, heavy ones - they have to be able to move when I toss and turn in bed. I laundered them upon receipt and am very pleases with the colors, weight (medium - not heavy - just right) and they fit very well - big pockets, no fighting to get them on bed. Very happy. I like to rely on reviews by customers. Never have steered me wrong and they didn't for this purchase
Purchased the Full Size for my granddaughter. She absolutely loves them and I am so impressed with the fit, quality and softness of these thick sheets. They washed perfectly, with the usual lint in the dryer's lint trap that comes with flannel sheets. The pillowcases are generously sized, the pattern is better in life. Don't hesitate, BUY THEM for someone you love!
Like all flannel sheets I've owned, they feel magnificent, even heavenly at first use. After a few sleepings and washings, they pill up and feel kind of gritty. But since they are still much nicer to slip into than cotton in the winter when my bedroom is cold, I leave them on. I also know that after many more months of use, they lose the pills and become soft again. The pattern is pretty and the flannel seems to be decent quality.
These are beautiful sheets, and it was such a treat to put them on the bed. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 star rating is that they take a little breaking in. They weren't as soft coming out of the package as I'd hoped, but after a few weeks of use, and two washes, they are heavenly! It's nice to have a product that gets BETTER with use! Plus, the color and pattern are even lovelier in real life. Recommended!
Overall, I love these flannel sheets. I've had them for over 3 years and still look forward to putting them on every winter. My advice, get two of everything you like. You can either share the joy with a friend giving it as a gift or have a back up. Very pleased!
Picture shows a very vibrant pattern color/design. This is certainly not the case after washing it for the very first time. Color is lackluster and it sheds like a border collie. Go ahead and purchase it...you will soon find out that this flannel sheet sheds like a collie.
