About flannel sheets: Flannel is a plain-weave cloth that has been heavily brushed for a soft napped finish. The brushing process creates insulating air pockets in the interlocking fibers that enhance its luxurious warmth. Cotton flannel is a favorite choice for pajamas and robes, cold-weather apparel, and bedding. Wool flannel is a soft twilled fabric with a loose texture and napped surface to conceal the weave, and is typically used for suits and business attire. Flannel sheets come in varying degrees of softness and density. Although flannel is typically known for its warmth, especially on those cold winter nights, they can be used year-round. They are available on the market as lightweight, midweight or heavyweight and are of varying thickness. When shopping, look for those made of 100% tightly woven cotton. 'Yarn-dyed' is preferred over 'printed' because it will hold its color longer. Flannel sheets are rated on the fabric weight (not thread count); flannel with a minimum weight of 5 to 6 oz per yard (170 to 200 gram) is the most desirable.
