Flannel sheets are perhaps the best sheets to have during cold winter nights, not only because of the warmth they provide but also because of how incredibly comfortable they are. Not only are they warm and cozy, but they are also surprisingly resistant and durable as far as sheets go?while their generous size usually fits beds of any size. You will also find that flannel sheets aren’t measured in thread count but weight.
The weight of a flannel sheet determines just how dense and cozy they are, which is also a good indicator of how warm they can be. For instance, 6 oz flannel sheets are a lot warmer than 5 oz sheets, but also much warmer as well. This being said, let us find out what are the ten best flannel sheets out there and what exactly makes them so good to begin with.
