When I lived in Melbourne,I ALWAYS had flannelette sheets in winter. I have NEVER needed them in the 30+ years I have lived in the tropics of Nth Qld though!! We rarely get cold nights fort more than a week here,so I just wear warmer nighties/pajamas and also some bed socks!! The cold was the main reason I left Melbourne, and I have been so much more comfortable ever since I came here!
they are more expensive but worth it! Get the pure alpaca
Check gsm for warmth I think -or i can send you buckets of raw llama!
No. I have never used flanellette sheets. My mother used them on my bed as a child and they kept me very warm. I have a doona, not sheets. The house is always very warm at all times, and so is my bed. The doona keeps me lovely and warm, and sometimes I have to throw it off
No, as under my cotton base-sheet, I've two doona's, then my 'Onkaparinga' pure wool blanket, I had as a child. Under the bed is carpet.
Then a large cotton top-sheet, then a doona. If it gets really cold, I add another doona atop.
I stopped using flannelette sheets years' ago, as I got way too hot.
I sure do, and I also have an electric blanket and a quit on top of that. We have a furnace set at 72 on the main floor, but on the upper levels it is much cooler by 5 to 7 degrees. We no longer live in the colder areas of Canada but it still gets cold here and Lake Ontario make it a lot colder than in a large city.
No. I use only cotton or satin sheets. I do have some for the 3/4 bed in the spare room but I can't recall when they were used last after the girls left home so they sit in the linen press, just in case. We did use some as drop sheets for painting trying to get rid of some.
I've never bought them for our beds, as I have a dozen or so pairs of pure cotton sheets in all different colours, although once i bought a bright yellow pr of sheets for the colour, & those have a little polyester in them. I did buy our daughters single flannelette sheets, that they used in winter, before they left home.
Yeh Finy - electric blankets are the best invention since sliced bread! I moved to Queensland from Melbourne which had very cold winters but, I guess I am so acclimatised to the Queensland heat, when the evenings become cold I really feel it.
Yes I do use flannelette sheets in winter and love them. They are so cosy. I don't use an electric blanket or hot water bottle. I also like flannelette pj pants but prefer a stretchy top with no buttons.
Oh, donjo, sorry to disappoint. There is no story and the fact is not interesting at all. My husband gets hot very easily and doesn't sleep well when hot. We don't even have a blanket on our bed at the moment and it is freezing of a night time. He is an enigma.
