Rated 5 out of 5 by FarmerVermont warm and soft
I bought these sheets because we use flannel all year long and they were on sale . . . I love a good sale! I bought Queen size, complete set, comforter covers and I am about to order twin size too. I have washed the queen set twice and yes, after the first wash, there was quite a bit of lint which I would expect. I washed them a second time and there was some pilling by husbands feet and nowhere else (I wear flannel socks). After the second wash there was not as much lint and they were still soft and warm. I love my sheets and I am not returning them. Remember, a good set of sheets should last about six months to one year if you use them all the time. Anything after that, you got more than your monies worth and I will bet I get more than MY monies worth! Thank you LL Bean for keeping me warm and comfortable all year long and standing behind your products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by loverofLLBean1 brand new flannel sheets should be perfect...
I bought a complete set of the ultrasoft flannel king size sheets in the blue buffalo check. Very excited to see how the sheets would look with my ticking strip flannel duvey cover, I took the sheets out of the packaging and made up the bed as soon as I got home. I discovered that there was a good size hole on the flat sheet. The next day I battled holiday traffic and lines to exchange for a new flat sheet. Once I got home, I took the new flat sheet out of the package and found that it too had a hole. I am very frustrated that this has happened twice and I will have to yet again go and exchange the sheet. I will be opening the package in the store next time to ensure that I do not purchase a damaged item for the THIRD time. I am willing to give it one more chance because I love the look of the pattern and they are the perfect weight flannel for my husband and I, but if I encounter another quality problem I will have to return the entire set and purchase my flannels somewhere else from now on.

When I first reviewed this product I only had the sheets for a short time. I have to now agree with other reviewers about the lack of quality in these sheets. The sheets were very soft and smooth when first purchased. However, after using them for a few weeks to months, they become just like your average flannel sheets....rough from all the pilling.

I bought the ivory ultrasoft flannel sheets and am disappointed in the quality. They are thin and have pilled significantly since using for two weeks and washing twice. My dryer lint filter is overloaded with each cycle. I've never returned sheets, but may very well return these. There are better options out there. I've noticed Beans is now carrying other (and presumably better) flannel sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jak2az Really, really great!
I have owned a lot of flannels. These are exactly as advertised, very soft, very warm, and, when used with the blanket I bought to accompany, just versitle in the cool weather where I live. I LOVE them, and am purchasing another set to join the two I got in the first order, for the guest bed. Washed twice no pilling.
The picture does show 2 sheetss and pillow case. However, when I ordered, I found one and one and a set of pillowcases. Just keep working on the order, and you will read you have a set. The free shipping is a real plus. Have recommended to friends! Thank you, LL Bean.

The picture is misleading. It appears as if there are two sheets and two pillow covers. I was amazed and shocked when I opened the package and was only one sheet and no pillow covers.. I live overseas and received the free shipping during family visit to USA. I intended to use the sheets for the cold Winter. As I am now overseas I am not eligible for free shipping and need to decide if I want to have a matching set and pay for international shipping..
I am disappointed at LL Bean for this inaccurate picture and description. I would have more than gladly purchased two pairs of sheets had the picture been accurate
Please LL Bean change the picture to make it clearer that there is only one sheet.

These sheets and pillowcases are not ultra soft they are run of the mill flannel linens. I was hoping for a heavier weight flannel but this is not it. Can't trust labels anymore. Seems even LLBean is taking short cuts these days and playing the word game. Where is the quality of years past?

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryinwisc Like the fact that the sheets aren't in sets
I have to respectfully disagree with the people who wish these excellent sheets came in sets - my preference has always been to use a very thin blanket instead of a top sheet, and I stopped buying sheets from Land's End when they started selling most of their flannel only in sets. In addition, I disliked the fact that the twin sets only came with one pillow case. I enjoy being able to buy a fitted sheet and a set of pillowcases, and in addition to be able to mix and match colors if I choose. I find that the fitted sheets from LL Bean are almost too large and stretch out a little with use, but better that than too small. They're very soft and I have no problem with the pilling - nothing unusual there. I have some "cheap" flannel from a department store, in a snowflake pattern, that looks good and barely pills - because it's so stiff and so thin! In other words, it's no contest as to which flannel I prefer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jlaalk Doesn't wear well
I ordered the ultrasoft flannel sheets. They are super warm but they pill awfully bad. They make a mess of my bedroom and I have to keep washing the bedskirt. Will not order them again!!
