Rated 2 out of 5 by Sophie46 Constantly pilling and leaves fuzz everywhere
I used to be obsessed with the UltroSoft Flannel bedding from LLBean. A few years ago, ordered their fitted sheet and a comforter cover?extremely warm and soft. Recently purchased a new bed so needed new sheets and comforter covers. Of course would turn to LLBean. However, the quality just isn't there anymore. I'm aware that the flannel needs to be washed a few times to get rid of any shedding/pilling, but it has been nonstop! I've thrown it into the washer/dryer over 10x and it still find pilling and fuzz all over my floors, it sticks to my clothing (especially if I have black on). I find myself constantly having to vacuum. It's like a pet that never stops shedding! Needless to say, moving forward, will take my flannel shopping elsewhere. The quality just isn't there anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PuppyLover19 Extremely Soft
My parents bought this for me last Christmas and I absolutely love it! It's thick, soft, and oh-so comfortable. I'm returning the favor and buying them one for Christmas this year.

This was a really good buy for our family as it felt smooth and comfortable. We got the colors red and green as it creates a warmth and a touch of elegance just in time for the Christmas holidays...

Rated 4 out of 5 by marham Lovely but Driftwood color not as pictured
I ordered this comforter cover in a twin. It fit my light to mid weight comforter perfectly. The fabric is substantial but soft. My only complaint is that the Driftwood color is yellower than pictured--it is more like what is often called Nude. I thought it would be more grayed and a tad darker. I kept it because other than the color, it is perfect. I'm considering a bit of dye..

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sophie46 Warm and cozy but fabric leaves lint everywhere
I bought this in the maroon color. I previously have owned an LL Bean comforter cover and loved it. Soft, extremely warm and high quality. However, just recently purchased one (9/2015) and material used rubs off onto everything. I have beige cotton bed sheets and this comforter cover has left tons of red fabric all over the bedsheet. I've worn a fleece top to bed (it's black) and the red material got all over my fleece - like a dog shedding its hair. It's a nuisance to have to run a lint remover through my clothes and entire bed. Though I did love LL Beans flannel comforter covers previously, I no longer do. The quality just isn't there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GwynnieM Wicked cozy!
I was so pleased when I received my comforter cover in the mail. It's incredibly cozy - so much so that it makes getting out of bed in the morning much more difficult! I am also very happy with the quality. I purchased the color "driftwood" and have no had any issues with lint or pilling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BackyardChair A second for the dust magnet ... :-(
Maybe it's because I have a down comforter, down pillows (inside good quality pillow covers), and the color (mariner blue) but this comforter cover picks up an amazing amount of white colored lint. I use two types of lint brushes (the adhesive roller type and a 3M cloth directional brush) and just cannot get or keep this cover clean.
I do like the fabric (have several sets of Ultra Comfort sheets which are great!), it's soft, fits my comforter well, adds a nice layer of warmth. But I'm just tired of looking at all the lint and cleaning it every other day. So back it goes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BrooklynBeans Dust Magnet!!!
I purchased this item for myself. I was not overly impressed with the quality of the flannel, the chamois flannel is much better. I got mariner blue and it showed every speck of lint or dust and attracted it like a magnet. Within a couple weeks I had enough and returned the item. I ordered the Indigo Quilt instead and couldn't be more happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by txgal2014 amazing quality
For years we have struggled to find just the right weight blanket for our climate. We live in Houston TX where winters are usually nonexistent, yet we can be chilly in bed. Most blankets and comforters are either too heavy, too warm, or not warm enough. This flannel material is EXTRAORDINARILY luxurious! It's so incredibly soft and light, it's the perfect topping on our bed. We inserted a lightweight blanket instead of a hot comforter and we love it. Pair this cover with the LLBean sheets and sleeping is a dream. It's truly amazing! I know this sounds cheesy and sappy but I'm VERY picky about my sheets, pillows, mattress, and blankets. This comforter cover is perfect in every sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bonwillow Excellent in every way
I got this comforter cover a few years ago. It is beautiful, soft, warm, and still looks good after constant use by us and the cat who sleeps on it. It holds up well after washing - doesn't shrink or pill.
Because we have a king size bed and a king size comforter, it became too big a hassle to shove the big cumbersome comforter back inside the cover every time we washed it. After awhile, I started just draping the comforter cover over the top of the comforter like a bedspread. Works fine for me!
