These flannel sheets are awful! I always wash new things before using them. It only took one wash & these sheets were completely pilled. I never got the chance to use them cause when I took them out of the drier ALL my laundry room & clothes got covered in little purple (I bought the purple color) cotton balls! Everything these sheets touched got covered in these little balls! I can't believe I spent so much money to get so much trouble and work! I spent 1 hour vacuuming my carpet and all my other sheets & duvets these awful sheets touched. I mean, EVERYTHING got covered with these balls and I'm not exagerating! I'm definitely returning these. Hope I can get my money back cause I bought the King size and I wouldn't keep them even if they were for free! That's how bad these sheets are. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY and save yourself the frustration and work.
