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.

Purchased in May 2019 at David Jones Retail Stores for $120.00.

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.

Purchased in June 2019 at Sheridan Physical store for $224.00.

Not even a 1 Star Standard


I’m a long term fan of Sheridan Manchester across the board. I purchased 2 sets of queen sized flannellette sheets - and despite numerous washes the pilling was never ending. It was like sleeping with a tissue box!!!

Purchased in March 2019 at Sheridan Physical store for $240.00.

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.

Purchased in April 2019 at Harris Scarfe Physical Stores for $129.95.

Piling nightmare!


Loyal to the brand, I bought these on sale online.
Whilst they are fluffy and warm in bed, they are a daily nightmare.
Have fluff all over my dark grey carpet EVERY morning and have to vacuum daily.
Terrible quality.

They were piling after the initial wash even after using the advised care instructions. Will never purchase Sheridan flanelette sheets of any sort again.
Terrible process to deal with if you purchased online via Sheridan. Disappointed

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.

pilling and fluff everywhere


the worst sheets I have ever had. washed 3 times and the pilling and fluff is everywhere. I had a cheaper brand for 2 years and none of these problems and still wearing well. I will never spend the money on Sheridan again.

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.

Pilling.....fluff everywhere. A nightmare.


I washed before using bit they still pilled everywhere. I'm hoping this lessens with time.
White balls of fluff all over the carpet and everywhere. I do not recommend. I thought Sheridan sheets would not leave this mess.

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.

Two years on and still shredding fluff -about time to chuck in the bin and never buy Sheridan flannel sheets ever again.

I wouldn't not recommend there sheets to anyone... I have never had sheet with so much pill on them... I'm disgusted in the quality of them & the price they charge they should not be doing it

Disappointed - should have listened to reviews


Shocking sheets. Still pilling after several washes, look very old and threading from elastic has come undone on fitted sheet. Was a loyal customer to Sheridan products but won't purchase again!!

Best flannelette sheets ever


These sheets have performed like no others that I have used!Generous sizing, beautiful colours,thick ,soft quality and no pilling or shedding of fibre right from the first wash..Absolutely luxurious and excellent quality.Thank you Sheridan!

Superior product


Without a doubt the best quality flannelette sheets ever...After 2 winters of wear they are as good as new, unlike all others I have purchased in 40 years that are threadbare after a short time. We just love these superb, cosy sheets! Great investment in a superior product..

Questions & Answers



Do you need to wash before using?

2 answers

Certainly do .Give a good hard wash with fabric conditioner to finish.. Dry on line the finish off in dryer


When washing bedsheets, especially high quality 1000TC+, I would suggest always washing before first use, and always washing in cold water and never use a clothes dryer. Put it on the line. This will prevent bedsheets from shrinking.
