Friday Favorite: Flannel

January 21st, 2011

Mr Chiots and I are HUGE fans of flannel sheets in the winter. They’re usually on the bed by mid-October and they stay on through at least the end of April. One of the reasons we like them so much is because we keep our house cold at night. It’s nothing like Kristin over at Going Country, who wakes up with her pillow frozen to the wall, but we keep our house at a chilly 55 at night in the winter (and 62 during the day, we’re cold loving folks). We have a big heavy wool blanket we use addition to our flannel sheets and we stay toasty warm all winter long.

I’ve always been a flannel loving girl, I remember having flannel sheets during the winter growing up (probably because my parents kept the house really cold as well). There’s just something so cozy about climbing into soft flannel sheets when it’s cold outside.

Are you a flannel lover? Is your climate too warm for them?
