Rated 5 out of 5 by JustMyThoughts As Good as can be.
I use flannel flat sheets as a Summer-weight blanket on my beds. I use the same silky, fine cotton bed sheets that I use all year. I simply adjust the "blanket" weight from flannel to wool, according to the season. For that reason I appreciate very much having the option to purchase the flats separately - I have little use for the fitted sheet or the pillow cases. A flannel flat over a nice regular bed sheet is also just the right thing for the tropics.
I also appreciate the range of colours that are available and the generous size of the flat sheets. For comfort, I believe a top sheet, flannel or otherwise, needs to overhang at least 18" on both sides of the mattress. These do, even after washing and machine drying. Quite often in fact I use a King size sheet on a queen bed and a double sheet on a twin bed for additional overhang. My beds a fairly high off the ground and this additional overhang feels and looks luxurious to me.
On the matter of washing, I have had no problem with colour fading or blotching. Of course, one should NOT use bleach which in my mind is the only thing that might cause the colour blotching problems reported earlier that caused me to hesitate before purchasing. In fact, I have found these flat sheets to wash and dry as well as any that I've ever owned. I rarely use machine drying except for towels that must be very dry and fluffed-up. I also dry flannel sheets by machine for the same reason - they actually feel thicker and fluffier after washing and drying than before. And yes, the lint catcher WILL fill up with lint during that first drying cycle. This is normal for flannel. The process of drying merely picks up the loose material that is the product's natural make-up and will become less and less with subsequent washings. Anyone who has been brought up with cotton flannel as a material of choice for blankets, diapers etc. will know that I speak from experience. Flannel is a wonderful material that breathes! We are so lucky that it is still available today, in this sea of synthetics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Foxrivervalley excellent quality comfortable sheets
I received the sheets, washed them and put them on the bed. They are wonderfully soft and comfortable. No problems at all with pilling or shedding. No complaints about the fit. Liked the color selections. Will buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lotsofwords My experience has been nothing but good
I had bought some other flannel sheet from Land's End years ago - I don't remember the weight, it was at least 5 years ago. I used those to DEATH every winter. I finally was able to buy another set for my queen-sized bed. First, I got the dark blue-gray Flint Blue, which is GORGEOUS in person. I washed it when I received and have not had a single issue from pilling or anything else. They are so soft!! My boyfriend was really impressed! Since I bought these on a sale price and I'm expecting to have them for several years to come, this is a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yankeelady2015 THIS FLANNEL SHEET IS THE BEST!
I ordered a fitted sheet for my queen mattress and received it yesterday. I put this flannel sheet on my bed right away. You could tell it was a high quality sheet just by looking at it. Great quality, very soft, luxurious. I love the fact that the elastic goes around the entire sheet. Sheet did not come off my mattress. Fits true to size. I will be ordering more. Thanks Land's End for delivering such a great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lindylou613 Sooooo disappointing!!
Stupid me didn't read the other reviews! Never having had flannel sheets before, I couldn't resist the 50% off sale (before Christmas) and purchased them. They felt so great and we LOVED them.....for the first few nights. Around about the third night we started to feel the pilling by our feet and then everywhere else. Every morning there were fuzz balls on the carpet on each side of the bed so much so that we had to sweep. There were pill fuzzies ALL OVER the blankets, our night clothes, and the cats! They felt so good though, that I decided to "bite the bullet" and take advantage of the sale to purchase a set of the more expensive (doubly priced) 6 oz. ones. These are fantastic and have not pilled yet. The 5 oz. are really horrible! My husband insists I throw them away but I hate to waste the money----and YES I washed them prior to using them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Diefenderfer Soft but incredibly annoying pilling
These sheets are very soft BUT I've never had sheets that pill like this. Even though they were washed before I put them on the bed the pilling was incredible and went all over the house every morning! I've had many flannel sheets over the years and NEVER had a problem like this. Overall a big disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasTilly Great Sheets
I now have three sets of these sheets in King size and they are everything I would expect in a flannel sheet and for the price. I bought Walnut last year (seems to be sesame now), then this fall bought both the Purplette Stripe and Aqua plus some extra pillowcases. I love LE home goods and while they are more expensive than I normally would pay, I watch for sales because the quality is so superior to what you find most places. I highly recommend these sheets, they wash well, wear well and are wonderful to sleep on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marintwinmom Not aqua
I have to agree with another reviewer that the "cool aqua" is not aqua. It's more of an apple or sage green. I'm glad I ordered a swatch before I ordered the sheets, which I probably wouldn't have if I hadn't read that other review. This is not the color I was hoping for. I have a nice set of flannel sheets from Lands' End that lasted almost 15 years, but is clearly time for another set. I'm hoping they'll be as good quality as the old ones, and that I can find a set in aqua or turquoise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Diane1974 Rich red are the most gorgeous sheets I've ever seen!
I ordered these sheets for my guest rooms and they are soft and beautiful. The rich red are true to their description and are the most gorgeous sheets I've ever seen. I know my visitors are going to love them! I received the sheets quickly after my order and they were EVERYTHING I was hoping they would be. I highly recommend these sheets and will buy them in another color for MY own bed!
