Creating Unique Flannel Sheets

Our bed sheets really are an important part of the overall bedding items used on a bed, and without any question of doubt, the higher the quality bed sheets used, the happier you will be when you’re tucked in for the night. So many of us focus on the covers, and pillows, but the fabric we lay on also plays a big role in providing us with a good quality sleep. Which is similar to bedding needs many times. What the thread count determines is the comfort of the fabric. A good rule of thumb is that the higher the thread count number, the softer the sheets will be. How many of us at some time or another have slept on scratchy sheets or those that are so thin you can almost see through them. We spend a long time asleep during out lifetime so it’s really important to make our sleeping experience as pleasant as possible.

Unfortunately, buying sheets is not quite as easy as it used to be or should be. You may go to a store wanting plain white cotton sheets but end up so confused because you have so many different types of cotton, that you may go home with the wrong one (in most cases) or end up buying something you don’t want. Not to be confused with flannel sheets, which is quite common. There’s no rocket science involved in washing bed sheets but there is one important tip that you may want to consider so as to keep your bed linen in tip top condition. After the wash cycle is complete, run the sheets through an extra rinse cycle to remove any soap residue since this decreases their softness.

Cotton is by far the most popular material because it is snuggly in the winter and cool in the summer (although they have to be warmed up in the winter first). There’s just something about sinking into a bed with high quality cotton sheets. In addition to being comfortable, manufacturers tend to produce them in more styles and colors (than other sheet types) to keep up with the consumer demand. Just like full flannel sheets usually. Finally, a silk or satin pair of sheets is considered the ultimate in luxury. They are silky soft and will keep you from sweating in the summer. You can literally slide into bed and if you have a satin or silk pillow case, lay your head in pure luxury. The only downside to satin and silk sheets is that they tend to slide off of the bed if not fitted properly.
