There is nothing nicer on a cold winter night than to be able to climb into bed without worrying about the sheets being cold as well. In days gone by one could insert a warmed rock or brick at the foot of the bed between the sheets to get the person’s feet warm, but that did not warm the rest of the bed. Now we have that wonderful item known as flannel sheets. These are all around far warmer than simple cotton or silk sheets, and warm up and hold the heat around a person much more efficiently as well.
There are sizes of flannel sheets to fit every bed from baby crib sheets to kids flannel sheets all the way up to the large king flannel sheets. One can get fitted ones in either traditional pocket corners, or the deep pocket corners for the now popular extra thick mattresses, as well as the extra long twin that is used in most college dorm room beds. All the colors of the rainbow, as well as patterns and designs are available as well. One can fit any taste or bedroom decor with these sheets, which frequently have matching ruffles and bedspreads or comforters available. Many of the popular comic book or cartoon characters are available for childrens rooms, and would make getting that little angel to bed much easier as well.
When shopping for long lasting, good quality flannel sheets do not let the price influence you too much. Just because they cost more does not mean they will last longer, or be softer than a less expensive item. Open the package and feel the sheet, and compare it with a few others of differing prices. It should feel nice and soft, as well as fairly thick. As these tend to be a seasonally used item, unless you live at the North or South Pole, you want something that you can store and use again, so make sure it is something that will give you comfort and enjoyment for years to come.
When it comes to where to buy flannel sheets, there is no one best place. As styles and colors are frequently discontinued, or not stocked at certain times of the year, one can find sales on some of the high end goods at far less than some of the lesser quality ones. The material they are made of will influence the cost as well. Wool and other similar fibers will tend to be a bit pricier than basic cotton will.

Take your time, do your comparisons, and then invest in these comfort giving wonders, and enjoy them for years to come.
