Flannel doesn't have a thread count to gauge quality like sateen and percale do, but we are impressed with what owners have to say about Garnet Hill Signature Flannel. Made by a company that's specialized in flannel bed sheets since 1976, these sheets have amassed nearly 200 owner reviews at GarnetHill.com. The overwhelming consensus is that the sheets are high quality, comfortable and heavy. A few owners mention the pillowcases shrunk after washing. These cotton bed sheets are available in six sizes and have elastic all the way around the fitted sheet to keep it from slipping off. Some consumers may find the six pastel color choices to be too limited. If you want cotton bed sheets that combine softness and smoothness, reviewers recommend Wamsutta Dream Zone Sheets (*Est. $160 for a queen set).
We didn't find any expert reviews for the Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Sheets, as flannel bed sheet aren't as mainstream as percale and sateen. We did, however, uncover several hundred owner reviews at GarnetHill.com and a small number at ApartmentTherapy.com. Good Housekeeping reviews other Garnet Hill sheets, which can give you an idea of their quality.
