Make the Bed in Flannel: The Cozy Staple’s All Grown Up

The thought of flannel sheets might conjure memories of the princess-printed or Boy Scout–ready sets you had as a kid. But now? It’s all grown up.

Why Flannel Sheets Rock

Rue Living Assistant Buyer Cara P. shares why our Egyptian cotton flannel is a bedtime staple for all ages: ”It’s made my winter sleep experience feel more like indulgence than survival. I don’t have to jump into an icy-cold bed and wait that excruciating minute for the covers to warm up. It’s like sleeping inside a fluffy cloud – that’s heated.”

We’re down for that.

The Winter Bed Update: Cozy Flannel, Down, & More Boutique opens Tuesday, December 24, at 11AM ET.

It’s also resistant to wear (growing softer with every wash), and can absorb deeper, brighter dyes.

Well, we’re officially ready to sink in.
