I was thrilled with these sheets when I got them. Most exciting was the DEEP pockets, as advertised. The fitted sheet easily slipped over the corners of my 18" mattress, and was long enough to cover the mattress sides. The sheets were soft and comfortable. Unfortunately - when I washed them, the amount of lint and fiber they shed was more than significant, and held up to the light, I could see between the formerly tight strands of the flannel fabric. Additionally, even though I washed the sheets in cold water, they shrunk considerably. They now have to be pulled from corner to corner and barely fit over the corners of the mattress. I am so glad I did not order additional sets of these sheets, which I had planned to do - but decided to wait until they were laundered.
I love flannel and these are DEEP pockets which I love. BUT after washing them for the first time I saw a tear in the fabric on the side of the fitted sheet and this was not a stress area. Also, these sheets are not soft like flannel should be. I washed them a second time in a fabric softener with no results. So I am disappointed.
The first set came with a hole in the fabric weave of the fitted sheet. It was quickly replaced with another set. The second set had a small stain on one of the pillow cases that would not wash out. I decided to just keep the set to avoid the hassle of sending them back. The set is very soft and warm. You should probably wash/dry the set a couple times before using them to avoid the lint balls all over it. They will fit a 20 inch mattress with the very deep pockets
We purchased these sheets a few months ago and could not be more pleased. The pockets are very deep and fit on our bed which is hard to fit. They are heavy weight and very soft. I am so pleased with them and recommend them to anyone wanting a soft warm sheet set that fits a deep mattress.
I just bough and got these sheets ( date ordered ) Jan.3,2016. We used them one ( 1 ) time and washed them per instructions.After we took them out of washer found they came apart at the seams. I would think just maybe should last a little more then just one use.Bottom line, junk
These are great sheets for us and I've bought a few sets of them now. They've actually got really deep pockets as opposed to other sets that claim to be deep pocket but still only fit on an average mattress. These you can actually tuck in around a thick pillow-top mattress. The flannel is also really nice at first. If you're going to be laundering them more than a couple times they get much less soft, though, hence the one star deduction. They're still nice sheets and not uncomfortable, but not so luxuriously soft as they start out. (I wash according to the instructions.)
