The easiest way to transform your OK bed into the gloriously warm sleep oasis of your dreams? Invest in the best flannel sheets you can afford. Flannel provides great insulation, which means you stay warmer no matter what the hell is going on outside. The sheets are a solid choice for the entire year if you tend to run cold at night; if, however, you wake up hot and sweaty, you want to save them for truly frigid weather.
Unlike traditional cotton sheets, flannel is sold by weight, not thread count. Simply put, the heavier the fabric, the more durable the sheets, so six ounce sheets (like the Coyuchi ones below) are ones you want to save for subzero temps. More lightweight ones, meanwhile, can be on your bed for all four seasons.
Truly a thing of wonder, these ultra-soft flannel five ounce sheets are lightweight enough to be used throughout the year, but cozy enough that you'll appreciate them even more in winter.
