6-oz Flannel Houndstooth Sheet Set or Pillowcase
I had already bought a set of the 6oz flannel sheets, and because I was so happy with those, decided to give a 6oz Houndstooth set (sand color) a try. This was a mistake. In terms of softness, the Houndstooth flannel is soft, but not as soft as the regular flannel fabric, due to the weave being looser. The worst part is the amount of pilling and shedding of the material. I had a cotton-covered duvet on top of the sheet, which got covered with sticky flannel fabric sheddings. This had not happened with the regular 6oz flannel. After washing the set for the first time, the amount of lint on the dryer screen was unbelievable (much more so than for regular flannel). More annoyingly, this lint/shedding both sticks to other items you may wash with these sheets, and becomes little loose beads that fly everywhere in the house. Finally, the fitted sheet, after a single wash, is now also pilling. The bottom line is that these sheets are really not worth the mess they create.

Beautifully woven design
The beautiful design is achieved by the unique weave (check the close-up). I've never seen houndstooth weave in sheets! These are very soft and high quality. There is a slight texture to the weave that makes it a little bit less soft than the 6oz solid colored flannel, which is the softest and smoothest of all. The 5oz solids are not quite as soft and smooth as the 6oz and you can see the threads more since it appears not to be as tightly woven. The 5oz is still nice though if you want to spend less.
The houndstooth is definitely worth the SLIGHT texture for the beauty and uniqueness of the design, which won't fade like a printed on houndstooth would. These are luxury!
You might not want these if you sleep with small pets however, since tiny claws would probably catch in the more open weave.

I ordered these sheets because I have been using Lands End flannel sheets for years, and have loved them. These sheets are heavenly soft. The material seems very thin, but for however long they last, I'm sleeping on a cloud. I have ordered another set of pillow cases as both my husband and I sleep with two pillows, and even my husband - who notices nothing - has commented on how soft these sheets are and wanted another pillow case. I have also ordered these same sheets in another color. Thank you, Lands End!

The worst flannel sheets ever!
I have purchased flannel sheets from Lands End for years. These do not feel soft and fluffy. They pill and shed after just two washings. They even pill when you are sleeping on them. Such a disappointment! Looking for a new place to buy flannel sheets.

Just recieved my 6oz flannel Houndstooth sheets and I am very disappointed in these ones. I have ordered many flannel sheet from Lands End in the past and have been extremely pleased with the quality and wear however these sheets feel flimsy and not at all up to the standards I have been used to in the past from Lands End. They feel more like jersey sheets than flannel to me! Beware of this product; stick with the regular flannel sheets if you do not want to be disappointed; Lands End make the best in my opinion...but not these ones.

If you're looking for soft but dressy flannel sheets for your bed then your search is over. I've bought many Land's End flannel sheets in the past and loved them all but these are now my absolute favourite. The weave is really interesting and pretty. The softness divine. My kids are now wanting some for their beds even though I just bought them the red stripe flannel ones. You won't be disappointed and the Sahara Sand colour is lovely!

I've purchased my flannel sheets from Lands End before( the 6 ounce supima cotton ) and
They are the best you can find anywhere.
These are advertised as Supima cotton 6 oz also but they don't even feel like flannel to me.
They are more like a knit or jersey material.
Not what I was expecting at all and they are going back.

These sheets are the softest and warmest ever!
I absolutely love my sheets. The flannel is so soft and warm. The red houndstooth looks so pretty with my red and white comforter, I don't want to take them off! I wash them and put them right back on my bed. They wash beautifully and retain the softness and warmth after being laundered. They have extra room for tucking and the fitted sheet easity fits the corners with extra sheet to spare. These sheets are well worth the money I paid for them. Will get lots and lots of use from these sheets!

True Love Found
My search for a high-quality, well-fitting set of 100% cotton flannel sheets that wash and dry like a dream and that practically sing me to sleep with a lullaby is over. The fit is very good. The top sheet extends to the bottom of my top mattress. The bottom sheet could have been a tighter fit but I do not need to wrestle with it to slip it on the mattress. The sheets are far heavier than my old ones in a really good way: thick, cushiony, soft. I have machine washed and dryed them once and all seemed very good---I did choose to stop the dryer half way through to empty the lint trap to speed up the drying time. (I suspect there'll be less and less fluff with future washings). However, there is no pilling or shedding of fibers onto our pajamas. Great Job, Lands End! Very satisfied and happy with these sheets!
