How to choose flannelette sheets?
Flannelette sheets are a great choice for those cooler months.
When it comes to choosing your new sheets, there are a few points you might like to consider.
Do the sheets suit the season and your sleeping preferences? How can you get the most comfort out of your sheets? What about the price range?
Finally, you might want to know where your sheets are made.
Step by step process on how to choose flannelette sheets
1. Think seasons
When searching for your sheets, know what season you are buying for. Flannelette sheet sets are ideally suited to the cooler months or those people who like a more cozy option.
They’re perfect for autumn and winter because they provide a breathable warmth that envelopes you while you sleep.
They have the added benefit of being warm from the moment you hop into bed - no need to warm them up first!
2. Choose Comfort
The right flannelette sheets will provide the ultimate comfort as you sleep. Materials make all the difference in your comfort level.
Some stores will have a choice of a cotton blend flannelette sheet or a 100% cotton flannelette.
Generally, 100% cotton options will provide better breathability. Decide which is best for you.
Make sure you select the right size for your bed. If the sheets are too small, you won’t be able to tuck them in. If they are too large, you will end up with bunching and tangled sheets.
With the proper care, your flannelette sheets should provide ultimate comfort whilst you sleep.

3. What about Pricing?
The same thing usually applies to any purchase, you pay more for better quality.
In saying this, flannelette sheets are usually not the most expensive sheet, so you should be able to find a great sheet set at a good price.
Shop around to find the type of sheet that you need to match your ideal price range.
You may find that your new flannelette sheets turn out to be a great cost-effective way to bring more warmth to your nights.
4. Where it’s made
We’re more aware of origins these days.
What we may not know is that the cotton produced in one country does not necessarily match the cotton produced elsewhere.
Likewise, the sheets themselves may be designed in one location, made elsewhere, with materials sourced from somewhere else again.
Everything has an effect on the end product, from climate to soil and plant growth, right through to production methods.
This is common practice and can often result in the best overall product for you!
You can usually find this information, if not in product descriptions, by contacting our stores directly.
