I've never had flannel sheets before, as I tend to get hot fast at night. I bought these for my fiance, who had them growing up as a child, and I am absolutely in LOVE with them. They are super soft, comfortable, and luxurious. I was a little offset by the price at first, but after buying them, I am very happy that I went through with it. I've bought more sets of flannel sheets through another company, but they do not compare to these. I've just bought 1 more set...I may never go back to regular sheets again!
