Every year I buy the 2 pack ones from Boden and they seem to go hard in the wash.

M&S don't seem to be very good quality. Any ideas?

I got nice ones recently in H&M.

Have you tried using a fabric softener?

I agree. The boden ones are quite stiff. M and s are dreadful quality. I've been suggested primark but haven't tried.
Sorry not much help

We wash usually in delicate lotion and hang dry over a dehumidifier - standard for all our clothes, also put bicarb of soda in the wash. not hard here.

Just cotton instead of flannel

The white company here

Gap do really nice children's pyjamas but the sizes do come up small (my 3 yo wears size 5). They was really nicely and are lovely and soft.

She also has a reasonably nice pair from next.

Next. They've never gone cardboard-y.

*wash really nicely

I've found fleecy or brushed cotton ones from supermarkets are good, also Next.

White company here too. They are quite lightweight but I love them.

I've had some great pjs from The White Company in the past, but stopped buying them last year when 2 pairs became unstitched after a few wears.

Gap ones are nice, but skinny fit and small. Primark are much thinner but don't go hard - they're fine for summer. Matalan do nice flannel ones that are cosy and don't go hard.

White company ones here, for my boys with eczema.

Not cheap but super soft excellent quality, esp the stripy ones.

Nice thick soft cotton

Fat Face, do fab pyjamas that don't go hard and are nice and cosy

Greengardenpixie Sat 08-Nov-14 09:06:03

jersey ones from nexr. Asda jersey great snd great price. As jersey matalan. In out of wash fab quality. No idea on flannel ones.

Primark flannel ones. We can't use conditioner and don't have a dryer and they're still nice and snugly. And £4 a pair.

Hatley. I got them as hand me downs but the more you wash them the softer they get. They are the very fitted ones though. A cheaper version are the same style from H &M in organic cotton. Really soft even out of the tumble. White company jersey good too.

I know what you mean about the Boden ones.

ireallydontlikemonday Sat 08-Nov-14 09:22:57

Sorry, just realised you're talking about adults and not kids!

fishfingersfortea Sat 08-Nov-14 09:25:16

Another one for White Company. Only get them when there's a discount.

slippermaiden Sat 08-Nov-14 09:27:41

Sainsburys long john style pyjamas or basically any t shirt material style pjs should solve that problem.

santamarianovella Sat 08-Nov-14 09:42:06

White company and petit bateau, excellent quality

IvyMay Sat 08-Nov-14 09:48:27

John lewis 2 pack pjs are great - lovely thick cotton t shirt material and wash really well.

applemac Sat 08-Nov-14 10:02:58

Thanks for your suggestions. I always use fabric softener anyway. I used to buy white company years ago and found that they went hard too so perhaps they have changed?

applemac Sat 08-Nov-14 10:11:01

Yes Hatley - good point. Dd had one pair from there for Christmas and as you say they went softer, not harder. They are so expensive though!
