I confess that these were my first-ever flannel sheets. I was always afraid that they would pill and be uncomfortable. Boy, was I wrong! These are wonderful, soft, quality sheets that make me look forward to going to bed at night and it even harder to get out in the morning. They seemed a little expensive at $59.00 but I didn't think I'd get quality at any less expense. Now they are ten dollars less. I recommend you snap up this deal if you are looking for flannel sheets! You won't be disappointed! I'd give these 10 stars if I could!
Update: After the second winter season of using these, they are still as soft (if not softer) as they were when new. They haven't pilled or thinned anywhere and the seams and elastic are intact and like new. I can't say enough positive things about these sheets. I've purchased sets for gifts and a second set to use when these become worn, in case they were no longer available. If you're looking for flannel sheets, give these a try. I can't see how you'd find any better, at any price.
Unbelievable comfort and warmth
I bought the taupe set and washed them first. I knew as soon as I checked the dryer that these were different than any others that I have had. With all of my past sets of flannel sheets, I had to continuously empty the lint filter during the drying process. With this set, this was not the case. There was some lint, but very little. Also, there has been no pilling.
When I first climbed into bed, it was like slipping into a comforting hug. I have never before had flannel this thick, this soft and this warm. Not even department store name brands can compare to these. And in response to the one complaint that the fitted sheet did not really fit their mattress, I completely disagree. My mattress is 17", then I have a 600 thread count extremely plush mattress pad on top that brings it up at least another inch. These sheets still went on easily and the corners still tucked under the way that they are supposed to. At this price, I am ordering a set of the butter ones today to tuck away as an extra set. Five stars is definitely not enough to describe these sheets.
UPDATE 11/6/11: These are still the best sheets I have ever owned, and they hold up better. It's been over 4 years. I have been using the same two sets of sheets since my original purchase. I change my bed every two weeks with the alternating set, so these have held up to one washing a month for over 4 years. Even with all of those washings, they are still in excellent condition... no worn places, no tears, still no pilling. The only real sign of wear is that the elastic on one corner of one set is just starting to stretch a little. I have two more sets that I purchased 4 years ago as well, still in the original packaging as they have not yet been needed. I hope that OnlineShopDealer never stops carrying these sheets!
Great, soft sheets
It's getting cold and we needed new flannel sheets, so gave these a try. They are very soft, just right for warmth, and after several washings have not pilled or become rough. They are just great. I've told a few people about them and am thinking about giving a few sets as holiday gifts.
Very impressed with these sheets!
Living in Minnesota I have become a flannel sheet connoisseur and have always purchased high end flannel because the lighter weight inexpensive sheets are a waste of money; they loose their softness and nap right away. These are quality sheets that are so soft and luxurious, just great to snuggle into. I appreciate that they are napped on both sides and have an extra deep 4" hem on the top sheet and pillow cases. The nap is tighter woven than most flannel, very felt like. The sheets have a good weight to them but are still very comfortable for summer use. They wash beautifully and have not pilled at all. The large pocket is designed for deeper mattresses but still do not slip on my more standard depth mattress. I think they are a great value and will definitely purchase more of these sets.
I have been used to seeing flannel weights in ounces per square yard so the 190 grams per square meter mystified me until my husband who is much better at math converted it to 5.6 oz per square yard. I don't think the picture on the product page accurately represents the color of the sheets. The picture looks tan but the sheets are a typical chamois gold
When I ordered these sheets, I'd been looking for new ones for a while after my old ones wore out. I wanted a nice pattern in a mid tone color, but tried these because of the reasonable price and the other reviews.
I am continually impressed with how nice these sheets are. They are thick and soft..so cozy! I washed them before using them and experienced minor pilling after first use. After the second wash, I've had no problem with pilling. These are deep sheets! I use a mattress clip at the corners to keep them smooth.
Truly, it's a pleasure to slip into bed at night with these flannel sheets. I highly reccomend them. Get them while you can!
Best Sheets We've Ever Owned
pinzon 190-Gram Velvet Flannel California King Sheet Set, Chamois I use king-sized flannel sheets year-round and these are perfect and never too hot in the summer.
I hate wrinkled sheets and refuse to iron sheets. The only cotton ones that do not irritate my skin to bed sores need ironing after laundering.
I have a very thick king-size mattress which is 17 inches deep. These sheets fit well.
I hope OnlineShopDealer continues to make them available to its customers!
VERY COZY AND THEY ACTUALLY FIT
I PURCHASED 2 KING SETS AND 1 QUEEN SET. VERY NICE!!!! SOFT AND WARM. MOST OF ALL WE HAVE VERY THICK MATTRESS'S, THEY FIT AND ACTUALLY TUCK UNDER. THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT REVIEWS.....YOU WERE RIGHT
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC FEEL!!!
We have had flannel sheets for many years and have loved them, but they have been nothing as soft as these. We bought four sets of these "Velvet" flannel sheets to replace all of our old sheets. As someone else already said, five stars really aren't enough!
At the price, they would make a REALLY appreciated wedding gift for someone.
UPDATE AS OF 08/27/2009 - It's been 2-1/2 years since we bought these sheets and we still LOVE the feel! They have stayed VERY soft and inviting!
Better than Expected
I just ordered my third set. What else can I say they are incredible. Don't think about it just hit the add to cart button and in a short time you will be writing a similar review to those you are reading. First rate.
Stop reading reviews for other sheets, I've done that!
Washed up nice and soft, not overly thick like some flannel can be! These sheets have more of a high quality sheet feel, than flannel. They almost feel like a warm version of satiny-silk.
Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect. Buy sheets from OnlineShopDealer? I am disabled, so I do almost all my shopping online. I have been an OnlineShopDealer shopper for a very long time. Reading the reviews of sheets on OnlineShopDealer was almost more than I could bare! So, I took a chance and I am glad I did.
Very nice sheets! I will change my review if they do not hold up. But so far, many washes and nights of use, they are perfect!
