So it snowed today… are you guys ready?! It may not officially be winter on the calendar but as soon as it snows it’s winter here in my books. I got all my little kiddos winter gear out including coats, hats, gloves, and of course all of our down comforters and gave them all a good wash. Whatever we have to do to stay warm – am I right?! I don’t know what it is about colder weather that makes me obsessed with making everything super cozy – but seriously bring on everything soft, plush, and fuffy!
This year in keeping with my rustic cozy winter theme – It was time to swap out my bedding for something more fitting for winter. Out went the cool summer linen sheets and in came the flannel sheet set! My friends from Garnet Hill sent me over a set including sheets, flannel pillows cases, and a duvet cover from their signature line in creamy white! All flannel! I’ll be honest – I’m a flannel bedding virgin… But I’m happy to report that since I’ve experienced them… I’ll be a flannel sheet kinda girl for life. Only in the chillier months that is, in my cozy cocoon. Who else here has never experienced flannel sheets before??
I seem to always have the coldest feet ever… I mean my poor husband will tell ya because I often put my toes on the back of his legs. Sorry, not sorry! I can’t be alone – Am I right?! But listen, guys, with Garnet Hill’s flannel bedding… there’s no need to torture our husbands anymore! My feet stay perfectly warm! My husband even commented on how amazing this flannel bedding is! He never notices anything. Seriously, I could have changed our bedding set from white to maroon and he wouldn’t notice a single thing. He’s a practical kind of guy – so when he noticed that he felt warmer and more comfortable in bed he realized something must be new!
So apparently flannel is a napped cotton fabric, which means its loose fibers are teased loose from the weave. These loose ends make flannel super livable soft and fluffy to the touch, plus the fibers trap air to keep in the heat… so there’s that!
Who needs a three?
Flannel is the perfect bedding this winter for texture and warmth and I for one am thrilled to be sleeping on the warmest – coziest – softest bedding ever!
