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.

The Classic

Brushed Natural Flannel Sheet Set, CB2 ($90)

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

Cloud Brushed™ Organic Flannel Sheets
Cloud Brushed Organic Flannel Sheets, Coyuchi ($48.00 – $318.00)

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

Flannel Flat Sheet, Zara Home ($70)

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 

Flannel Sheet Set
Flannel Sheet Set, Boll and Branch ($230)

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

Organic Flannel Houndstooth Sheet Set
Organic Flannel Houndstooth Sheet Set, West Elm ($159)

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

Printed Flannel Sheet Set
Printed Flannel Sheet Set, Threshold ($23)

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

Stripe Flannel Sheet Set Queen
Stripe Flannel Sheet Set Queen, Crate and Barrel ($130)

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

Harrington Bed Linen Collection
Harrington Bed Linen Collection, The White Company ($15 – $109)

When it comes to patterns, this gingham set is pretty much Goldilocks-approved—not too bold, not too subtle.

Hibernation never sounded so good.
