Quality has gone way downhill
Sheridan flannelette sheets used to be great (round 2014) and an expensive pair we have from then are still going but two pairs purchased since then at same price and which were supposed to be top quality in the range have pilled, roughened and become unusable despite following all washing and care instructions. The fabric is just inferior quality and thickness to the old ones. I would have been willing to keep paying more and been brand loyal but I feel I have been ripped off. Go Bhumi, the best flannel sheets you can get here now I think...
Purchased in May 2019 for A$300.00.
Will never buy Sheridan flannelette bedsheets again!
I have bought Sheridan towels and sheets in the past and they have always been good quality. However I would never buy their flannelette sheets again. Poor quality, in fact I bought no name cheapies from a reject shop 20 yrs ago that were not great but better than these. As other reviews have stated, after numerous washes they are still shedding excessively. The shedding has not improved at all. Rather than being soft to sleep on, much of the fluff has stuck to the sheets and created hard bits which is like sandpaper. It amazes me that with so many others experiencing the same thing, Sheridan has not addressed this issue at all.
Very expensive rubbish!
Bought 2 sets of flannelette sheets from Sheridan in store. Was told by staff member how wonderful they were, best sellers in fact. I spent more than I normally would as I thought these were superior quality products... mmm...a few days in and the pilling is ridiculous. Washed again and followed instructions...pilling again after 2 nights...fabric is now harsh and uncomfortable to sleep on. Called the store to complain, was told to wash again, put in dryer and maybe after a few more washes they will settle. They look like they are 10 years old! The pilling is all over the sheets and pillow cases. Trying to find receipt so I can return as staff member told me they would be sent off to 'quality control' if I don't have a receipt.
Very poor quality cotton
These sheets were very cosy to sleep on but after using them for a couple of weeks and washing weekly they are now covered in pilling. I followed washing instructions to the letter and line dried. Fluff falling off everywhere.
Not worth the price
Agree with prior reviews - fluff and mess continued despite washing. I expect a little of this from flannelette sheets, but it was over the top. They also pilled and we’re unsightly and rough to touch. They’ve been returned and Myer Heritage brand are doing great. My previous set of Sheridan flannelettes have become threadbare in parts, lost their elastic and torn after only 4 winters of intermittent use. I like and still use the lighter cotton Sheridan bed linen.
Morgan and Finch Bedsheets
I purchased a bedsheet set made by Morgan and Finch. 1200TC, Egyptian Cotton, sateen, Queen size.
Well, the "contour " fitted sheet is the most comfortable I ever had. Very comfy pillow case and good flat sheet.
I must say that I am very particular with my bedsheets. I wash them on gentle cycle, only 3 minutes spin and always dried outdoor on the line.
I thoroughly recommend this.
May 10th 2018 Update: White sheet discoloured soon
I bought Sheridan 1000 TC Luxury satteen fitted bedsheet. Queen size. White. Paid $199

Disappointed in Sheridan flannelette sheets
Have loved Sheridan Manchester for years.
Has quality deteotiated over the years.
Sent back towels because of excess fluff even after several washes.
Bought flannelette sheets & covered in piling after changing sheets. Have washed them several times and still excess piling.
Purchased cheaper flannelette from Bed bath & table and no piling at all.
What's happening with quality?
Fluffy bunnies EVERYWHERE
I returned these sheets after the piling was just unmanageable. When I returned them, the store person said there was a careslip in the pack (which I missed) explaining that they need to be washed at least 3-4 times to get rid of the pilling... I had washed them twice, vacuumed several times and was still finding so much fluff everywhere- the pilling is out of control.
Even though the sheets are gone now, the excessive fluffy bunnies remain, through our clothes, the washing machine, EVERYWHERE. NIGHTMAAAARE. Worse than having a shedding pet.
Sheridan have some brilliant quality linen, these are not it.
Would not buy anything but Sheridan
I have used them for 43 years and bought them for my children and I still have them in the linen cupboard, and now am buying them for my grandchildren. If you say they are expensive I agree, but in the end they last and are worth it.
Great - when the fluff is gone!
Great value and price although I am still removing fluff from my son's dark coloured doona cover.I have tried everything - line drying - rinsing in vinegar- drying on the line and in dryer but after four washes is still shredding fluff.
