A Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight Review Won’t Answer These 121 Questions – Part 1 of 4
★★★★★ A Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight review will not answer these 19 questions. Get the truth from people who own a Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight, including the fact that it won’t…
This report about the Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight answers these questions
• How are these sheets for holding on to pet hair? I usually buy Sateen sheets that are really great about not holding the hair but looking for warmth. Why is it that not one Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight review talks about this?
• Are the sheets thick and and do they wrinkle after washing and drying? Is the cotton sandwiched between two layers of flannel? Electrostatic charges?
• Are these sheets too warm? I often roll to the cool side of the bed and flip the pillows.
• Has anyone ordered the sage? If so, is the picture accurate? The color looks to be very light from the photo.
• Have read every Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight review. I'm considering the Thyme Green. Do those with this color find it to be fairly true? It will be next to a pattern.
• I have these sheets in aubergine and off white and have been waiting for them in gray. Are they the same? they are about $23.00 less, not complainin
• I have a deep mattress will this fit 18" easily? And do they shrink?
• Would these flannel sheets be OK in the summer or would the too warm?
• Do these sheets make you hot? Could you use them year round? I usually buy jersey sheets. Would these be similar? Thanks Not one Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight review answers this question.
• Does it shed or pill?
• I live in a cool winter climate an need warm sheets for winter. Are these flannel sheets warm?
• I am confused whether to order these sheets or not. Many reviews rave about them but a few say they ball up and are awful. They are to be a gift
• Help. Not one Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight review covers this: Is the elastic all around the king fitted sheet or just at the corners?
• Just received our Pinzon heavy duty flannel sheets and they feel great to the touch. Should they be washed before using?
• How does 190 grams per meter, compare with the commonly used ounce weight used in America, specifically what would that weight be?
• Do they get uncomfortably hot? This is primarily a concern with two people in the bed.
• Hubby loves flannel but I have to have sheets w/ a SMOOTH finish–Smooth like a tablecloth, not bumpy like the inside of a sweatshirt. How are these? No luck getting this info from any Pinzon Signature 190-Gram Cotton Heavyweight review.
• Would these flannel sheets fit snugly on a 9" deep mattress?
• What is the thread count?

 QUESTION: HOW ARE THESE SHEETS FOR HOLDING ON TO PET HAIR? I USUALLY BUY SATEEN SHEETS THAT ARE REALLY GREAT ABOUT NOT HOLDING THE HAIR BUT LOOKING FOR WARMTH. WHY IS IT THAT NOT ONE PINZON SIGNATURE 190-GRAM COTTON HEAVYWEIGHT REVIEW TALKS ABOUT THIS?
• I assume everyone will feel differently about this but we have 4 cats and we’re not in the habit of making the bed every day so they often have free reign on these sheets. I felt that compared to the previous sets of flannel I’ve had (from Kohl’s and walmart) the Pinzon doesn’t hold a lot of static and so there’s not really a force to cling to hair. In the 2 years we’ve used them we’ve never felt static electricity in proximity to the flannel nor have we ever been shocked by this set. It’s not something I would’ve thought about if you hadn’t asked but I remember with my previous sets of retail flannel my wife and I both had to fight the force of static cling just to brush our hair every morning (not fun, and I had short hair) and that meant pet hair was a bigger problem too. (With that set, if you tu rned out the lights and lifted the sheet up and ran your hand across it you would see little sparks follow your hand across the sheet from the little shocks the static gave you, no joke. So you can probably imagine pet hair was a much bigger problem with that set.) I’m much happier with the pinzon and I’ve never seen noticeable fur patterns or clods of hair/fur left behind when my cats vacate the bed. (And considering 3 of my cats have long hair and we don’t brush them as much as we should I think that says something of the quality. I wouldn’t be able to stand sleeping on lots of pet hair because I have eczema and the itch would get to me.) I use flannel year round and they are still going strong after a couple years. They are heavier and warmer than any of the flannel sets I once had and I’ve never felt the need to take a lint brush to them. I really think that’s due to the fact that my set doesn’t have static cling and that’s a big reason I’m ve ry happy with it. But when you wash it for the first time you will get a fair bit of lint. That’s to be expected and I never felt like I lost my sheets in the wash. Mine were still soft, warm and heavy and static free even after being in the dryer. They have been washed a few times since then and I don’t get lots of lint in the lint trap anymore. (My kohl’s flannel dyed anything in the wash til they were finally retired and they became threadbare after heavy use so that is another reason I am happier with this set.) That’s just my experience. If you get this set I hope you’ll have the same good experience.
• They will certainly hold pet hair if you’re not careful to keep your pet off of them. My dog is confined to comforter territory.
• A little but not terribly. Our cat would sleep under the covers with us when we had sateen sheets, but the first winter we had these, he didn’t like them. This winter, he’s gotten under the covers almost nightly. There may be a little more fur accumulation on these than the sateen sheets, but that’s more from friction than static I think. We have a cold-natured short-hair tabby.
 QUESTION: ARE THE SHEETS THICK AND AND DO THEY WRINKLE AFTER WASHING AND DRYING? IS THE COTTON SANDWICHED BETWEEN TWO LAYERS OF FLANNEL? ELECTROSTATIC CHARGES?
• The sheets are thick, soft and super comfortable. I take them out of the dryer as soon as they are done so that they are nice and warm when I put them on the bed. They are not wrinkled and we do not get “shocked” when we get in bed. I love them and get a fantastic night’s sleep.
• The sheets are thick. Not too thick, though. Just right. I wash them in hot water and dry them in the dryer. I take them out promptly and they don’t wrinkle. I don’t think that they are made in layers. There doesn’t seem to be anything sewn together or “sandwiched in” like a quilt. The sheets just seem to be made out of a nice weight of cotton flannel. Any fabric can have electrostatic charges, depending on the humidity, or lack thereof. I use dryer sheets (like Bounce) and have not noticed any static when I take the sheets out of the dryer. As I said in my review, for the money, these are the nicest flannel sheets I have found. Excellent value.
• The sheets are neither too thick or too thin. I haven’t noticed that they wrinkle. I haven’t noticed any static electricity, but my wife does wash them with an anti-static sheet. I can’t answer your other question.
• The 190 gram flannel is what we refer to as chamois flannel, the heaviest used in bedding and shirts. It’s really heavy and will last years. One set is now 9 years old and just got put on the bed this week when the night time temps dropped. I’ve always washed mine in cold water, as I do everything. Dry at med heat, one sheet at a time for wrinkle-free finish. There’s nothing “Sandwiched” about true flannel, it is cotton through and through with soft flannel finish on both sides. I’ve never has any problem with electrostatic charges and I do NOT use fabric softener sheets.
• Even though they say heavyweight they are a nice, comfortable weight and thickness. They are light but very, very soft. At the same time, they are sturdy – they’ve not pilled, frayed or shrunk. And I wash them on hot! I pull them out of the dryer and take them straight to the bed so I’ve not noticed any wrinkling. I’ve not had any static either but I do use a house humidifier in the winter.
• Sorry-I cannot answer that question. I purchased these as a gift. I can say the person I purchased them for was very happy with the product.
 QUESTION: ARE THESE SHEETS TOO WARM? I OFTEN ROLL TO THE COOL SIDE OF THE BED AND FLIP THE PILLOWS.
• I do not find them to be too warm. They are very comfortable and I only have a blanket on top of them and no comforter.
• Yes they are …I live in Vermont and they were to warm for my husband and my self . But if you get cold easy would be a good choice , infact I have two sets of Cali king brown ,one not even opened . Not sure if they would refund me after it being 3-4 months since I purchased them . But they are very strong thick sheets you can see they are well made and I read reviews that a lady purchased 2 sets and after 5 years still has not even had to break out 2nd set , that’s why I purchased 2 sets so I could alternate washing but after using the first set it was just to warm for us so I didn’t open second set hoping to return them , just never got around to it :/ hope this helped .
• Everyone has their own preferences, but I actually consider them cooler because the fabric weave is looser than traditional sheets.
• This might be tmi but these sheets are so soft, you might not want to wear pjs. They just feel great. I prefer cool and I find these breathe well. I only use flannel in winter (and t-shirt cotton ones in summer)but these are so soft they could change my mind…
• When it’s warmer, I switch to regular cotton sheets. I love the flannel for winter. They are really comfy. The comfort factor depends on how warm you keep your house at night. Mine’s set for 68*.
• Yes, they are very warm. I had to buy a different set of sheets for the summer because they are too warm. (FYI, my AC is set at 73F)
• I don’t find them too warm with a light blanket on warmer nights, great for 3 seasons at least. Very soft and well made too
 QUESTION: HAS ANYONE ORDERED THE SAGE? IF SO, IS THE PICTURE ACCURATE? THE COLOR LOOKS TO BE VERY LIGHT FROM THE PHOTO.
• The photo showing here with your question is the cream color. I went back and looked at the website, the Sage is pretty close to the sage photo, maybe just a hint darker. It’s a pretty color in person, looks like a true sage to me. If you’ve never tried these sheets you’ll love them!!
• They aren’t”t light as the picture appears they are a little darker than the picture. The flannel sheets are very soft !
• They are a little darker than the picture. But very soft!
• It all depends on how well the color on your monitor or printer is calibrated.
• I agree with Kristy’s answer. The picture is the cream color and you need to click on the color to see it. The picture is just a hint darker but that could be an artifact from the monitor and perhaps the way they were lit to be photographed. Still, you will be very pleased with the color, the warmth they provide (I use them even though I live in the southern US), and their durability. Just be prepared for a *lot* of lint the first few uses.
• I just got the sage and have to say the color is very close to the picture on my monitor. it is a very nice coft sage color, matches my bedding well. Sheets seem to be of good quality.
• Not the color you have here. The color in the original ad was accurate in my opinion.
• I agree it does look a bit like a sage tint more than a definite colour. But looks nice enough. Have only ordered the off-white sheets so sorry I can’t be of more help. 🙂
• I have ordered the sage but I haven’t received them yet. Today I can only vouch for the brown, which is very dark like strong Italian coffee. Diana
 QUESTION: HAVE READ EVERY PINZON SIGNATURE 190-GRAM COTTON HEAVYWEIGHT REVIEW. I&#39;M CONSIDERING THE THYME GREEN. DO THOSE WITH THIS COLOR FIND IT TO BE FAIRLY TRUE? IT WILL BE NEXT TO A PATTERN.
• The picture looks kind of greyish online. It’s a true dark green (like Thyme leaves, not bright yellow green but a light olive color). Using brown as an example, they are NOT light (i.e. beige being lightest brown) but more of medium tan (not dark but definitely NOT a pastel tone). I ordered them thinking they would be lighter but when you look at the whole bed, they are richer but not dark, just darker than I expected. I’m saying it poorly, but expect a rich, saturated, beautiful shade of herbal thyme green and you’ll be thrilled. (I have a dark chocolate brown blanket, so while dark, they look lovely together. If your pattern has light shades in it, the effect would be much lighter overall.) ANYWAY, the quality, warmth, COMFORT you’ll experience is worth it even if the shade is darker than many things called “thyme&q; uot;!
• Oh, FYI, the colors are hard to judge online but my brother got a set for a friend in Chamois … to me it looked kind of pink online, but he reported it “matched their golden retriever” so always good to double check!
• Nice job! Picked the colors you wanted AND got a deal, too! Glad I could assist … am always cautious but your questions were succinct, so I took a shot at it. ARE THEY NOT THE BEST SHEETS EVER? Just wait til they’ve washed … just remember to CHECK LINT TRAP OFTEN the first couple of times – they shed ALOT, but get softer!
• Can’t answer about color. Mine are blue.
• While I selected a different color, it was true to the photo on my screen.
 QUESTION: I HAVE THESE SHEETS IN AUBERGINE AND OFF WHITE AND HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THEM IN GRAY. ARE THEY THE SAME? THEY ARE ABOUT $23.00 LESS, NOT COMPLAININ
• I believe these are exactly the same as what you have. They are the same weight, just a different colour.
• Very good quality sheets- I have them in graphite – they wash well and stay soft
• There is a huge difference in the price of Pinzon Velvet Flannel bedding on both Amazon’s website (the exclusive importer of Pinzon products) and on eBay. The price differential isn’t consistent though – if there is a logical explanation for the big difference in cost for identical items, I have no idea what it might be. If you’re not in a hurry to buy the sheets, my advice would be to check both Amazon and eBay once or twice a month and wait for a good deal on the size and color you are looking for. One difference to be aware of – Pinzon makes Velvet Flannel bedding in both 170 gram and 190 gram weights.
• The set of sheets I left the review for were 190 grams per square meter in Sage. They aren’t the thickest flannel sheets I’ve ever seen, but they are thick enough for the description of “heavy” to be accurate. I bought a 2nd set of sheets a couple weeks ago as a gift. That set was 170 grams per square meter in Graphite, which turned out to be a very attractive medium gray. The feel of the fabric and the finish quality of both sets of sheets is very good – close to a “10”. The difference in weight is noticeable, but the lighter weight sheets still have the “velvet flannel” feel to them. I hope this helps.
 QUESTION: I HAVE A DEEP MATTRESS WILL THIS FIT 18&QUOT; EASILY? AND DO THEY SHRINK?
• I don’t think they shrink much at all, but I wash in cold and dry on low, just to be safe. So far, they have not pilled and are still soft and smooth. My mattress is about 16=17 inches deep and they just fit. 18 inches might be too much. really tough to find sheet that fit extra deep mattresses but keep looking, they’re out there
• Yes, I have a deep mattress PLUS a couple of toppers and these sheets fit wonderfully even after washing!
• I have a regular, “full” sized mattress and the fitted sheet fits perfectly. I don’t think it would work well if your mattress is 18″. You could just buy the next size up. I love the sheets, by the way. They are so soft and comfortable compared with the polyester blend ones.
• It will shrink even when washed in cold and dryed at a low heat but it still fits my 18″ mattress. Look out for the lint! But they are really soft and comfortable. Also the top sheet is a little short.
• Yes they will fit and I washed cold water before putting on bed. They fit great and are very comfortable
• I agree with the other reviewers. These are wonderful sheets and fit my thick Tempurpedic mattress that has a 2″ inch memory foam topper. After washing I found the top sheet a bit narrow but the luscious comfort overcomes this. You do need to clean out your dryer’s lint filter.
• We have a deep mattress and sleep on a feather bed and there is plenty of room with these sheets. They are fabulous!
 QUESTION: WOULD THESE FLANNEL SHEETS BE OK IN THE SUMMER OR WOULD THE TOO WARM?
• I personally feel flannel is a winter sheet, even the perception of flannel is warmth. If you use air conditioning year round, then probably good in the summer.
• I think they would be way too warm. If the temperature is above 68, they are way too warm for me. In the summer, I sue a light cotton sheet, versus the flannel sheets. Easier to put more on than to remake the bed with thinner sheets.
• I sleep under these flannel sheets year round. I prefer to be on the warm side at night. It would depend on how you cooled your house in the summer. I live in an area where summer days are 90’s to low 100’s and low humidity. The night time temperatures drop to low 60’s. I use a fan at night. Hope this helps.
• We having been using them for a few weeks now, and I do not think it is too warm for summer! I do just love them too 🙂
• These sheets are constructed, purchased and intended for WINTER months only.
• Sorry, Joyce – I purchased them for winter use so I’m hoping they are warmer for winter. I can tell you that the Pinzon cotton sateen sheets I purchased for Spring/Summer use are fairly thick sheets and would probably be considered warmer than average sheets in general.
• I live in New Orleans and currently use these sheets in the “August heat”. I use an air conditioner 24/7 and my top quilt is very thin and it’s perfect!
• I have been using them year round, we don’t find them too warm at all – but we do run the AC in the summer
 QUESTION: DO THESE SHEETS MAKE YOU HOT? COULD YOU USE THEM YEAR ROUND? I USUALLY BUY JERSEY SHEETS. WOULD THESE BE SIMILAR? THANKS NOT ONE PINZON SIGNATURE 190-GRAM COTTON HEAVYWEIGHT REVIEW ANSWERS THIS QUESTION.
• We live in Delawre and it was very cold this season. These sheets were fabulous on cold nights. These sheets are still being used. If you use them in hot weather they might not be what you want
• Much heavier than jersey sheets. These are very warm. They are thick, and very soft – really nice to sleep in when it’s cold, but we will be changing to regular sheets soon.
• An even better(much) feel, but definitely not for warm weather.
• They don’t make me hot. I’m a petite person. I sleep with a down blanket and 2 light weight blankets. I would think they would be slightly warmer than jersey. Yes I will use them year round. I live in CA. Near the ocean, the coldest it gets here would be around 50 degrees
• I have no idea if they could be used in the summer; I guess it would depend on where you live. I bought them to replace Fleece sheets” and I don’t like flannel. They come somewhere in between those two. I love the material and quality but I don’t think I would want them in the summer where I live. (In very hot weather) They are kind of heavy.
• These sheets are nice and they do not make u hot
• I live in Arkansas and I wouldn’t use them in summer, only in the winter when they are nice and warm to get into. I don’t know what jersey is, I use cotton sheets in the summer time.
 QUESTION: DOES IT SHED OR PILL?
• When on the bed there is no pilling or shedding. I have noticed the times I wash the sheets there is lint in the dryer lint trap. I can honestly say: I LOVE my flannel sheets. So smooth, warm, and toasty. Well worth the price. Hope this helps—-
• So far they display neither traits but they are also fairly new. Still love em!
• It hasn’t yet. Have had it on the bed since the end of December ’13 with washings at the end of each week. So it seems to be holding up well.
• Not sure yet. It doesn’t ‘ appear that they will. I’m very happy with them after 3or4washings.
• Noooo! Love these sheets! No pilling or shedding. In fact, they’re far warmer than any flannel sheets I’ve ever purchased but they feel like cotton. I’m buying these forevermore. Seriously.
• Not so far. My wife washes them weekly, and they have performed in a first class manner since Christmas –
• I have no problems with either. Of course the initial washing there’s a lot of lint but my sheets are still like new after 3 months of use and washings.
• I have not had an issue shedding nor with pilling. They are pricey but worth it.
• I have noticed some pilling. Although it’s not the worst I have had. But for what I paid I was hoping they wouldn’t at all ya know?! I think the only wat to get NO pilling is to use a blend instead of ALL cotton. Hope it helped.
 QUESTION: I LIVE IN A COOL WINTER CLIMATE AN NEED WARM SHEETS FOR WINTER. ARE THESE FLANNEL SHEETS WARM?
• Yes they are Very warm… I live in the High Desert and it regularly goes to the single digits and I prefer to sleep in a cool house (just warm enough to keep the pipes from freezing at night) and these sheets are the warmest flannel I have ever slept in my 60 years!
• Yes, very! I used to need a heated blanket but now I just use these and they work great. Takes the edge off the crispy, cold nights when I get into bed!
• Yes they are nice and warm. We use them here in the Rockies along with an electric blanket and we sleep much more soundly. I would think that a “cool winter climate” is perfect for these sheets; no more cold cotton percale to try to warm up.
• Yes they are warm, but wash it first, for it loses a lot of the lint at the beginning. You will enjoy and keep warm.
• YES! I live in New England and suffer from Raynaud’s phenomenon which is extremely uncomfortable when trying to get a good night’s sleep. These sheets have kept me warm and sock free!! I have actually bought another set to rotate this winter.
• I don’t think the sheets will keep you much warmer, but they are not cold feeling when you get into bed. I still use two other blankets and my bedroom is probably 65 degrees.
 QUESTION: I AM CONFUSED WHETHER TO ORDER THESE SHEETS OR NOT. MANY REVIEWS RAVE ABOUT THEM BUT A FEW SAY THEY BALL UP AND ARE AWFUL. THEY ARE TO BE A GIFT
• I am one of those who wrote a positive review. My wife and I just put them back on the bed this past weekend and they are as comfy as I remember them from last winter. We care well for the sheets, meaning we wash them every few weeks, no longer than a month. From our experience, it seems like as long as you take reasonably good care of them, they won’t have any problems. I also doubt you’ll find 100% consensus on any product. There will always be people who either received a bad product or who didn’t get what they thought they were. In a worst case scenario, the recipient of your gift returns or exchanges it (or asks you to do it – not entirely sure how Amazon’s return policies work for gifts).
• Balling up? We’ve had them for a few years now and they are perfectly fine. No issues.
• Perhaps I don’t know a lot about sheets, but I love mine and have not experienced any kind of “balling up”.
• Have not had that problem.
• Mine are fine so far. I bought the first set about three years ago and the second set last year. Hope this helps.
• Have washed sheets 12 times and no pilling best sheets I have ever owned!!!!!!!!!
 QUESTION: HELP. NOT ONE PINZON SIGNATURE 190-GRAM COTTON HEAVYWEIGHT REVIEW COVERS THIS: IS THE ELASTIC ALL AROUND THE KING FITTED SHEET OR JUST AT THE CORNERS?
• It is corners, but I would not buy these, first wash and my dryer lint tray was FULL, was afraid I would start a fire.
• Elastic is all the way around the king fitted sheet. I still LOVE mine and ordered a second set. Have never been more pleased with any flannel sheet set than these.
• These sheets are great. The lint is only like that on first wash because fabric is new.
• On the queen set, the elastic is all the way around the fitted sheet. These sheets are awesome!
• Hi Terry, my answer is specifically about this item: “Pinzon Heavyweight Cotton Flannel Sheet Set – King, Cream.” I have the King sized sheets and I just looked at them to be sure… the elastic is all around the fitted sheet — NOT just the corners. The flat sheet is wide so there is a nice length of sheet hanging evenly at both sides of the bed. These are my favorite sheets…. nice thickness and very soft and mine have not started to pill yet. I want to get another set. Hope this helps.
• Elastic is all around the fitted sheet. Enjoy this set for years to come. The quality is second to none.
 QUESTION: JUST RECEIVED OUR PINZON HEAVY DUTY FLANNEL SHEETS AND THEY FEEL GREAT TO THE TOUCH. SHOULD THEY BE WASHED BEFORE USING?
• I washed mine first according to the instructions: gentle cycle, cold water, tumble dry low. They’re fantastically soft but the top sheet is not large enough to tuck in. I have since read that it’s good to include a 1/2 cup of vinegar in a flannel’s first wash to reduce future pilling and color fading; in addition, to avoid fabric softener as that can lead to pilling. Hope you enjoy the sheets.
• Yes, we did and I think it gets a lot of the smell out of the sheets. They feel just as soft after they have been washed.
• It’s always a good idea to wash things like sheets and clothes before using them. But if you’re asking as far as losing the softness after washing, mine felt just as soft after a trip through the washer as they did straight out of the package. They do create quite a mess of the lint trap, however. Be warned of that.
• I appreciate your answer, Humphrey, and I’m so glad the sheets will be just as nice and soft after washing. I will do that before we use them, remembering to clean the lint trap.
 QUESTION: HOW DOES 190 GRAMS PER METER, COMPARE WITH THE COMMONLY USED OUNCE WEIGHT USED IN AMERICA, SPECIFICALLY WHAT WOULD THAT WEIGHT BE?
• You have to take into account that the 190GSM is grams per square meter and the 6 oz is per square yard. 190 GSM is about 6 oz wt. the 170GSM is about 5 oz. wt.
• 190 grams = 6.7 ounces. We have two sets already and will be ordering a third. These are the best flannel sheets ever! We have had flannel sets from LL Bean, Eddie Bauer, and Carol Little. Only the Bean brand comes close in flannel weight (6 oz) and softness. The jury is still out on durability, as we have not owned and used the Pinzon brand long enough – just one winter season.
• I don’t know the answer to that but I do know these sheets are better than $160 sheets I bought at kohls
• For what it’s worth, these are the thickest flannel sheets I’ve ever seen. Really thick flannel pajamas might be thicker/heavier, but probably not by much.
• 190 grams = 6.7 oz. Square yard to square meter conversion is about 1 sq yd = .85 sq meter, so 190 gsm = 6.7 x .85 = about 5.6 oz weight per yard. Fairly typical middle range weight for flannel.
 QUESTION: DO THEY GET UNCOMFORTABLY HOT? THIS IS PRIMARILY A CONCERN WITH TWO PEOPLE IN THE BED.
• I haven’t found them to be uncomfortably hot at all, and it was only in the last couple of weeks that my husband suggested we were ready for cotton sheets for the summer. 🙂 We do live in Michigan and that could make a difference.
• I don’t think so, but then it was pretty chilly some of the places we were traveling (I got them for our RV). I really like them, but still needed blankets 🙂
• No, not in the cold months. But when warmer weather comes in the spring it’s time to remove them. We have a king sized bed and therefore we do not mind the warmer sheets in the winter months.
• Not at all, surprisingly. They are so soft and cool, but if you have a lot of blankets on, they will retain heat.
• No. They are VERY light and cozy. We actually use them with our wool Hudson Bay blanket and sleep like logs. We reside in north Idaho so it does get a bit chilly at night.
• I don’t get uncomfortably hot, I just feel snug as the sheets are soft, comfortable and warm. I cannot answer how it would be with two people.
 QUESTION: HUBBY LOVES FLANNEL BUT I HAVE TO HAVE SHEETS W/ A SMOOTH FINISH–SMOOTH LIKE A TABLECLOTH, NOT BUMPY LIKE THE INSIDE OF A SWEATSHIRT. HOW ARE THESE? NO LUCK GETTING THIS INFO FROM ANY PINZON SIGNATURE 190-GRAM COTTON HEAVYWEIGHT REVIEW.
• They actually have a smooth velvet feel to them.
• They are very smooth – this is what I like about them. No bumps what so ever but only washed twice so far. Reviews say they do not get bumpy after several washes. I love them!
• Ordering a second set. They are the best I have ever had. love them
• These sheets are heavier than any other flannel sheets we’ve ever had. To me, they are smooth and very comfortable.
• Good question! I think they are smooth not bumpy. But that’s my perspective. Enjoy!
• I personally find these ones to be smooth. They have held up well and haven’t pilled. I think they would work for you. I hope the helps!
• These are somewhere in between. They aren’t bumpy, although I’ve only washed them twice so far, but they aren’t super smooth like others I’ve had. They produced a ton of lint in the dryer and make little pills on my socks if I wear any to bed. These are fuzzy and cozy, but not bumpy or super smooth.
 QUESTION: WOULD THESE FLANNEL SHEETS FIT SNUGLY ON A 9&QUOT; DEEP MATTRESS?
• Yes, I believe they would. We have them on a very nice pillow top mattress. They are great quality, very thick and soft, not at all flimsy. I will buy more.
• Hard to say. The sheet pocket measures 14 inches from the top of the seam to the bottom of the elastic (Queen sized set), however, the elastic can be tucked under the mattress, so I would say the sheets would work with a 9 inch mattress.
• Yes, no problem. I always bought my sheets from LLBean but they have become so expensive. I tried these sheets at half the cost and they are , in my opinion, a better quality than the Bean sheets. The elastic on the fitted sheet goes all the way around the sheet giving it a better fit on the mattress and there is ample fabric to fit around up to a 10-12″ mattress. I will buy these sheets over LLBean anyday. Money well spent.
• If they are the same ones I purchased…yes and they are a great quality…love them!
• The fitted sheet has elastic all around; fits mattresses up to 18 inches thick.
 QUESTION: WHAT IS THE THREAD COUNT?
• These are flannel sheets so there is no thread count. Good soft sheets that fit well.
• Flannel sheets are not measured by thread count but by grams. These sheets are 190 grams. I’m certainly not an expert on that, but they seem thick and warm–yet breathable.
• 190 gram flannel weight!
• Some manufacturers use low-quality fibers or even “cheat” by counting the strands or plies that make up an individual thread as additional threads. How? Manufacturers will use much thinner strands of fabric twisted together, and then they double, triple or even quadruple the thread count — even though it’s essentially one thread (made up of smaller threads). In other words, a thread count of 600 might really be just 300 low-quality double-ply threads. “It ups the count but doesn’t give you a better sheet. I bought them because many said they didn’t pill-up when washed over and over. I have found this to be very truthful about these sheets they are nice after multiple of washes as the day I bought them.
QUESTION: WHO HAS THE LOWEST PRICE?
• Amazon. The ASIN number is B007M6G568
