Flannel Sheets Are the Bedding Equivalent of a Big, Cozy Hug
Snuggle up in our favorites.

Few things compare to the comfort of curling up in a blanket on a chilly day, tucked in your own little cocoon away from the cold. After all, fall and winter are all about nesting. A pile of afghans and enough pillows to built a fort are crucial ingredients for a dreamy bed, but one more addition can make it even better: flannel sheets.
Think about how it felt to slip on your favorite sweater for the first time this season. It’s perfectly worn-in, hugs you in all the right places, and provides that much-needed extra sense of comfort. Flannel sheets deliver the same experience on a nightly basis. Swap in one of these sets the next time you make your bed and prepare for instant coziness.
If you’re faithful to your all-white bedding, there’s no need to change things up. These simple sheets are the wintertime version of your summer percale.
The Candlelight Counterpart
A warm color palette can make your bedroom feel less chilly physically and emotionally. Bonus: The brushed finish keeps these from pilling.
The Understated Plaid
When you don’t want to go full ski chalet but still want things feel a bit more seasonal, this super-simple checked flat sheet (with matching pillowcases) is the perfect option.
The Blissed-Out Blue
The subtle herringbone texture of this option make them look especially neat and crisp—but appearances are deceiving. To the touch, they’re soft as velvet.
The Perfect Pink
A splash of spring-like peony will pull you out of your wintertime sorrows—there’s a reason why it’s Benjamin Moore’s 2020 color of the year.
The Cottage Check
If you want to lean into the wintry cottage aesthetic, look no further than this black-and-white check. Pair it with your beloved hand-me-down quilt for some extra log cabin realness.
The Skinny Stripes
Never underestimate the power of a pinstripe when you want to look put-together. These sheets have the power of making your bed look extra tidy—even if you can’t be bothered to make hospital corners.
The Just-Right Geo
When it comes to patterns, this gingham set is pretty much Goldilocks-approved—not too bold, not too subtle.
Hibernation never sounded so good.
