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!
I used to until this year when I am not for some odd reason as am feeling the cold worse than ever.

I have bought some microfiber sheets and they are beautiful to sleep on - so soft, and also some bamboo/cotton which are also lovely and soft once they are washed.

However, I do not seem to feel the cold as much at night in bed and do not wear winter pyjamas this year either -I DO put my electric blanket on high before I go to bed.

No, I never have and every year I tell myself I really should buy some and every year I just put two doonas on and forget about it. LOL.
by Rice
two doonas???? Get yourself an alpaca one and it is light, and far warmer than any other type -also quite thin!
by Finy
Finy, you are a GEM . . . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been really struggling with the weight this year. Thank you :-)))))
by Rice
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!
by Finy
Please tell me you mean raw wool and not raw llama . . . :-0))))
by Rice
Ooooh. I am going to be having a good look at that hotel at home site. Thank you, Finy :-)
by Rice
hahah - I mean llama fleece direct from my llamas!

Yes, our Canadian winters are cold!

No....I use an electric blanket..Love it.
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
Yes but by morning they are 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.

No they are so old fashioned and you end up with little balls of fluff everywhere. I use a thin blanket to lie on and that keeps me warm.
actually nat -they seem to be in here in WA as they are in all shops whereas they used to be hard to get -yes, I agree, they pill badly!
by Finy
No. I put my electric blanket on high about an hour before I plan on going to bed and that keeps me warm. If I wake up cold during the night I just switch the blanket back on and I'm warm in no time.
me too! bought a new el. blanket last year and it is brilliant and heats up in about 3 minutes, but I also turn it on before bed but only about 10 minutes

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.
by norma
Yes sometimes,
the only thing I don't like is if you have rough skin on your heels the sheets seem to rub on the flannelette.
I agree they are cosy in the cold weather.
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.
I use flannelette....and find them SO cosy!
No, my husband couldn't do it.
by Vee
Oh! Vee........is there a story to your comment? Sounds VERY interesting! Lol!
by donjo
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.
by Vee
Oh yes. Nothing like snuggling into warm, fluffy sheets when it's cold. The trouble is having to leave them to get up & go to work!
