Friends Of the Forest Flannel Sheets
I use flannel sheets year round and have for many years but never tried the ones from Lanz. I love my Lanz flannel bathrobe and when I saw the cute print with all the forest critters that I can see from my bedroom window, I had to have them. These are so nice, I've been washing them and putting them right back on the bed instead of rotating through my other sheets. They are that much better. The flannel is really soft and warm and after several months of washing each week, still looks new.

Cute print, soft, but do not believe they are 6 oz. flannel
The sheets are cute...go well with the outdoor animal theme for the bedroom I purchased them for. Had I paid $35 for this set, I probably would give them a 4-5 star rating. However, for the price paid, I cannot justify that rating. For one thing, the flannel is thin. No where near as thick as some 5 oz. flannel sheets I purchased last year from another retailer. Nothing on the packaging gives a weight for these sheets. There is no way these are 6 oz. flannel as advertised in the website description!!!!! I think someone needs to look into this and correct it on the website and in any catalogs it may be appearing.
The washing instructions suggest washing them on delicate and LINE HANGING them. Really???? I personally don't know anyone who hangs clothes out on a line. Plus, even if I had a clothes line outside, I surely wouldn't be hanging them outside on a line in sub-freezing temperatures. My guess is that since this flannel is so thin, they want you to wash on delicate and line dry so the flannel doesn't become paper thin in a few washings. I really should have sent them back, but I like the print and they will be used in a guest room, so won't have to wash them often. If I had bought them for weekly use, they would definitely have been shipped back. I know these are not going to hold up well. They truly look/feel like flannel from a budget store, not the flannel I was expecting from the Vermont Country Store. Yes, I am disappointed!!! I will stick to flannel sheets from my other retailer in the future. All I can say is the print is cute, but even the print is not yard dyed, but rather printed on. Just not a quality product all the way around. :-(

In a word these sheets are wonderful! The pattern is charming and the flannel soft and warm. Just what is needed on a cold winter's night!
