While taking steps to make your home warm and cozy for winter, don’t forget about warm options for your bed sheets.
Finding the right sheets will help you feel comfortable all night long, without making you wake up in the middle of the night feeling like you’re in an oven or an igloo.
Here are sheet options you might want to consider for keeping the nip out of the air – and your bed.
Perhaps best known for shirts and pajamas, flannel is an excellent material for sheets. When the cold weather takes over, it’s nice to have the added touch of warmth and softness that flannel provides. The fibers not only surround you in softness, but also trap your body heat to help envelop you in warmth.
Cotton is a popular choice for sheets throughout all the seasons of the year. Not only is it breathable, keeping you from sweating while you sleep, but it is also a highly affordable material. The fact that cotton is a durable fabric makes it an appropriate choice for children and adults alike. It also layers well with blankets, quilts, and comforters for added warmth. Higher thread count in cotton sheets indicates higher quality sheets, so keep that in mind when shopping for cotton.
If cost is the main concern for you, microfiber has a lot to offer. These affordable sheet sets are made of extremely soft, durable, synthetic fibers that are comfortable and warm, in addition to being incredibly inexpensive. Much like cotton sheets, microfiber sheets indicate quality with higher thread counts.
The insulating properties in fleece make it an excellent choice for a wide variety of winter items, including blankets, jackets, scarves, hats, and other articles of clothing in winter. It is now becoming a popular choice for sheets for the same reasons.
Combined with easy care instructions, it’s easy to see why fleece is a clear winner among consumers – especially those looking to erase the chill of winter from their bones.
