I got these for the color and print, and because flannel is so much better than smooth cotton for these chilly nights. The colors and print are beautiful. The fabric is on the lightweight side and the nap is not really fluffy, so the sheets are smoother than the really fluffy flannel. I love the colors and the flannel will do, though not as warm as some other flannel sheets I have in a different colorway. I am in Michigan and really appreciate anything to keep warm at night. I don't use the pillowcases on the sleeping pillows, but one looks nice on the decorative pillow in the middle. The sheets fit my deep mattress well and they look cheerful and coordinated with my sea blue bedding. There is plenty of overlap to tuck in the bottom sheet, and plenty left on the sides to curl up with in the top sheet. I have not washed them yet so don't know how they will fare through a dryer session. Maybe they will fluff up a bit, hope they don't shrink.
