John Lewis Soft & Cosy Flannelette Bedding
Good product, but...
Really superb quality, have looked at a lot of similar bedding and nothing comes close in terms of sheer quality of the material used, warm and hardwearing.
The Not So Good
Size - Mmmm, larger than our standard king sized duvet by around 100mm, which means that the duvet flops around inside the cover. Similar issue with the fitted bottom sheet, slightly larger than our standard king size mattress, so not as tight fitting as we would have hoped. Admittedly the product sizes were on the packaging, but have never had this problem before, I foolishly assumed that King Size was a UK standard.
Accessories - we bought coloured bedding (duvet cover and fitted sheet) and could not find matching pillowcases in the same range (only white), so had to buy poorer quality products elsewhere, which didn't quite match in terms of colour.

this duvet cover is fantastic to snuggle up in. We never want to get up on these cold, dark mornings. Quality is very good, would recommend for winter use.

cosy cosy cosy
lovely good quality flannelette duvet cover, purchased two and considered sending one back after realising how heavy it was when wet, but having used it i found it too cosy and found a way of washing to suit ,
mine are superking and too large to dry in dryer even with dryer balls , so i find it best to half dry in tumble dryer then fold over clothes stand overnight to complete drying, i like having two now , also i dont bother to iron it and its fine, being sk its not worth the effort for a few creases. was pleased with price too. def recommend especially if you like brushed cotton and use with brushed cotton sheets. very cosy !

Super - fluffy and soft duvet covers
I bought these flannelette duvet covers for my son's bed and he loves the feel of them. He says they are especially warm, too. They wash well and when popped into the tumble dryer for the last few minutes of drying, they fluff up beautifully. Very nice clean white too. I've also bought the superking for us to try on our own bed.

Very warm and comfortable duvet cover. Quite thick fabric, which is ideal, and a very good price for the quality. Really pleased with my purchase.

Flannelette Duvet Covers
These duvet covers are perfect for winter: soft and warm to the touch they are beautifully made and finished. The natural is a perfect colour choice for those of us who prefer things plain and simple and functional. The matching pillow cases make the perfect set for the perfect sleep.

Great quality flannelette
This is really good quality flannelette and lovely and warm. I've not washed it yet so can't comment on how that goes, but there's definitely no 'bobbling' of the fabric after a week's use #which is a huge relief as I had to return bed linen to another company which shed bobbles from the start and they got everywhere!#. The duvet cover is very large, however, much bigger than our kingsize duvet so I do wonder if a superking had been put in a kingsize package. Hopefully it will shrink a bit when washed.

Fuzzy and warm!
I purchased this cover along with a fitted sheet and 2 pillow cases. I have had cheap flannel sheets previously and these are the best ones I have ever bought.
I like how the opening has buttons closing it and they face the inside of the cover when buttoned.
My only annoyance was that there was, like other reviewers mentioned, a spot or two on it that didn't wash away, however this doesn't matter much to me.
A good buy!
