A plush, warm fabric of various weights and fineness, flannel is a plain-weave cloth that has been heavily brushed or carded for a soft napped finish. The brushing process creates insulating air pockets in the interlocking fibers that enhance its luxurious warmth. Cotton flannel is a favorite choice for pajamas and robes, cold-weather apparel, and bedding. A medium-weight fabric, wool flannel is a soft twilled fabric with a loose texture and napped surface to conceal the weave. Wool flannel is used mainly for suits and business attire.
Derived from the Welsh word for wool, gwlanen, flannel was being woven in Wales as early as the 16 th century. The French were using flanelle by the late 17th century, and a German word for the fabric, flannell, can be traced back to the early 1800s, indicating the use of this soft, warm material for clothing and bed linens during harsh German winters.

Bought these to alternate with some other flannel sheets. So soft and warm my spouse complains when the others are on the bed... Have washed them twice and haven't shrunk excessively or pilled. So nice I don't want to get out of bed in the morning…

I purchased the searsucker sheets because I liked the looks---and I believed they would be quality perfect as the other many items that I have purchased from Orvis. Bingo ! They launder great and feel so good snuggled in between the comfort of all cotton sheets . Thank you,I appreciate knowing Orvis is there for me!

Purchased these sheets with some reservations having never purchased sheets online. I'm picky about quality of bed linens. These sheets exceeded my expectations. They are cool and soft to the touch right out of the packaging and continue to get more comfortable with use. They are plenty deep for modern pillow top mattresses as well. I recommend these sheets to anyone who might have reservations as I once did.
