Flannel Sheets for a Warm and Cozy Sleep


There’s something different about sleeping in winter. It’s snowing outside, and you curl up in your bed to warm yourself up. And if you love snuggling like me, you may just wish you were a bear hibernating in winter like I think sometimes (LOL).

So since we have started talking about warm winter bed sheets, what is your personal preference for warm bed sheets?

For me (and for most people), it’s all about flannel bedding. I find flannel bed sheets totally comforting, and I don’t have trouble sleeping whenever I lay on my bed in wintertime. I have heard about people who have trouble sleeping in winter, they toss here and there and suddenly it’s two a.m. and they are still wide-awake. I suggest to them about flannel bedding and their typical response is ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ – typical….

Flannel sheets don’t get as much attention as the other types of sheets. In terms of affordability, flannel sheets are also far more affordable than comforters as winter bedding. Flannel sheet sets provide much more warmth and weigh much lighter than an expensive comforter. Additionally, flannelette sheets also lower your heating bills, as using flannel sheets can keep you warm all night, even though your heater is on a low setting.
