On cool winter nights, slipping between cozy flannelette sheets at the end of a long day can feel like heaven. Flannelette sheets, commonly known as brushed cotton or flannel, are warm, fuzzy cotton bed sheets than are perfect for cool winter months and cold sleepers.If you're interested in buying a new set of warm flannelette or brushed cotton sheets, then keep reading for answers to commonly asked questions about flannelette sheets.About Flannelette Sheets:
Is flannelette the same as brushed cotton?Flannelette is also known as Brushed Cotton. The brushing process creates a soft pile on the sheet, which holds the warmth in well and creates that soft, cosy feel! The terms are quite often used inter-changeably as Flannelette / Brushed Cotton fabric is brushed on both sides, resulting in a fuzzier, warmer and thicker fabric. Sometimes Brushed Cotton is only brushed on one side, but ours is brushed on both.
What is flannelette?Flannelette is a 100% cotton fabric with a thick warp and thin weft, the surface of which is napped. What that means in regular terms is that flannelette is a lightweight, soft, fuzzy cotton fabric.How are flannelette sheets different than flannel sheets?Technically, flannel is a loosely woven wool fabric that is not napped. While a distinction between flannelette and flannel is still made in Europe, the flannel sold in the United States is actually flannelette; real flannel is much less common and usually more expensive. However, don’t assume that flannelette is inferior to traditional flannel. Flannelette is a very different fabric than flannel and produces soft, cozy sheets that flannel would not.Are flannelette sheets better than regular sheets?Flannelette sheets aren’t better or worse than regular sheets, but they do have properties that make them perfect for certain situations. Because flannelette sheets are thicker than regular sheets and brushed, they make great sheets for cold nights or cold sleepers. If you sleep cold, if you want a new set of extra cozy sheets for the winter or if you’re looking for the right sheets for your weekend retreat, flannelette sheets may be perfect.What should I look for when I’m buying flannelette sheets?Material and weight are the major factors to consider when you’re shopping for flannelette sheets. Look for 100% cotton flannelette when you’re shopping for flannelette bedding. Some flannelette sheets are made from cotton-poly blends, which have a lighter hand and pill more quickly than all cotton flannelette sheets. Also, most flannelette sheets will give a weight expressed in gram-per-square-meter, so compare the weights of different flannelette sheets when you’re shopping. We only have 100% Cotton flannelette and brushed cotton.Are flannelette sheets expensive?Flannelette sheets vary in quality and price, but since flannelette doesn’t require a high thread count for its signature fuzzy nap, prices for quality flannelette sheets stay relatively low, but its all about the grams per square metre.Are flannelette sheets difficult to find?As long as you realize that flannelette sheets are usually called “brushed cotton sheets,” they’re easy to find and we have a huge section dedicated to our favourite range. In fact, there are many different kinds of flannelette bedding available, like flannelette duvet covers and flannelette pillow cases.
