I can't attest to the quality of the sheets, but they were advertised as ivory with a gray stripe.. The bag that they were packed in said red stripe. The stripes were neither gray nor red, but appeared to be a brown. Unfortunately I had ordered gray flannel pillowcases to match the sheets. I did keep the sheets as I will be able to use them in a guest room this fall/winter.I notified Sierra about the discrepancy in color, but have heard nothing back

Another reviewer and myself mentioned that the pillow cases were a bit too short to accommodate a standard sized pillow. I just discovered the reason - they are European envelope style cases. There is a folded band of fabric inside the opening meant to wrap over the end of the pillow. Now my pillows stay securely inside their case.

These are some of the highest quality sheets I've ever owned. I have purchased two sets and consider them a great investment. You won't need to replace these sheets for a very long time. I do agree with the reviewer who mentioned that the pillow cases are just a tad too short for a standard pillow.

2 stars because they are cert org. However, I agree, these cannot be legitimately labeled as "flannel." Also, I rec'd a set that had different colors on the flat/fitted sheets (one is gray & one is red). Since the stripe is thin...probably not a big deal, but a def QA problem!
While these are a disappointment, as I've been shopping for organic flannel sheets for several years (yes, I'm a bargain hunter on a budget)...I figured with 5 yards of extra wide fabric @$13/yd (on sale)...the material itself is worth keeping and using as quilt backing or cushion covers (surrounding the stuffing under other, attractive fabric); I haven't found a better price yet for this kind of material & width (organic, of course) by the bolt.

These sheets are crinkly but really quite soft on the surface. They seem like sheets that should last many years. They feel quite good to me though you should consider the other reviewers who think they are too stiff.

This is to update the review I left months ago after purchasing the sheets. As another reviewer states, they have not gotten softer with wear and washing and have actually gotten stiffer. Too bad as the price was good (I see it's gotten cheaper since my purchase). I would not purchase them again and am looking for replacements.
