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.

Temps are dropping and it’s time to swap out those summer sheets. We have the scoop on the cold season’s two top picks.


This fall, no more socks in bed to keep warm. That’s what flannel is for. This cool-weather favorite’s snug softness comes from loosely woven threads that are brushed on both sides. Poor insulation? Prefer cozy to crisp? Choose flannel. It requires no warming up. Crawl right in.

Cotton fabric can seemingly do it all, but keeping it wrinkle-free is anything but easy. Enter: synthetics. Woven with polyester, sheets effortlessly stay smooth (hello, 5-star-hotel aesthetic) without sacrificing warmth. So, even on chilly nights, your bed will be crisp, cool, finely pressed – and super cozy.
