Rated 5 out of 5 by pajimdiver Flannel Sheets
I am back for more flannel sheets. I have bought them for many years and this last set is wearing out after years of use. I use them year around for the comfort, not just in the winter. I get a fitted sheet for the mattress and a size larger for the flat sheet so I do not wake up in the middle of the night uncovered because I toss and turn. I will be back again, Lord willing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SJSocon These flannel sheets pill...:(
I ordered the bottom sheet in full and twin to try-out because LLB said their flannel 'resist pilling' but both sheets pilled quickly so, I didn't purchase any others.
You can feel the little balls of flannel while you sleep. Flannel is warmer than regular cotton but not as comfortable when they pill. I found using a regular cotton top sheet to be the best option over an all flannel bed...especially, if it's pilling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rose1952 Not as advertised
I too purchased the white flannel sheet. According to the picture it looked like a "set" but to only find a twin fitted sheet was rather disappointing. But the worst thing is that I washed the sheet before putting it on the bed, and it now feels much thinner, and more like a regular sheet than a flannel. $16.00 even on sale is a lot, for one fitted sheet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Goldenrodfarm Do not wear well
I bought two sets of these sheets and in slightly more then a year the bottom sheet on the navy set has several wear holes, the warp is still there but the weft is gone, there are 4 or 5 of these holes and more appear each time I wash them. I was pleased when I got these because I like to get a queen fitted sheet and a King top sheet, but I expect them to be in use for more then a year before they fall apart considering the price of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SHERRIB Quality!
I bought these as gifts for all of my family after buying just 1 twin flat sheet to use as an oversized throw for the living room. My son-in-law raved about their gift. They have an extra thick mattress & have problems keeping the fitted sheet corners on the mattress. These are super soft and stay on their mattress. He told our daughter they're buying LLBean sheets from now on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MomShopsatLLBean Very poor quality
I purchased these flannel sheets in twin size for my son. I washed them once before using them and once after using them for a week. The flannel is now threadbare. They pill. And the pills were separated from the fitted sheet, so I had to use several lint remover sheets before taking the sheet out of the bed to avoid making a mess on the carpet. This is not at all what I expected from LLBean sheets. The quality of LLBean products has been going down the drain in the past few years. What happened? It used to be that just by purchasing an item with the LLBean name on it I was confident I was getting a good quality product. Not any more.

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.
