How can flannel sheets really lower your heating bill? It’s true. For myself, I hate getting into cold sheets. I turn the heat up or turn on a heating pad, so I don’t get into a cold bed. I shivered for an hour if the bed was cold. I discovered the solution… flannel sheets in the winter. They make a huge different in how fast I fall asleep. I used to kick my feet to warm up a spot with friction. I used to dread rolling over and hitting cold sheets. No more! With flannel sheets I snuggle in immediately and am cozy. I don’t need a heating pad or the thermostat higher. Flannel sheets are three season sheets in our home. In spring and fall, the flannel sheets feel like a light blanket. It’s great for nights that are too warm for blankets but too cool for just a sheet. Flannels solve that problem,too.
If you are really cold blooded, May I recommend fleece sheets! I didn’t even know they made them until my mom was given a set for Christmas. As she got older, she was always cold, especially at night. She loved her fleece sheets. But even she used flannels until it was really cold, because the fleece is so warm.
Flannels have been great in my kids rooms. They seem to snuggle into bed much faster with the flannel sheets. They are just comfortable so much faster. If this sounds like you, I hope you consider flannel sheets. It has been helpful to our comfort level and our pocket book.
