Sleep is the last refuge of the over-busy soul. As long as you don’t bring your smartphone to bed (you don’t, do you?) it invites you to escape today long enough to recover for tomorrow.

So if you’re going to splurge anywhere, splurge where you snooze. On Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Sheets from Germany.

They’re 6.1 ounce flannel, a weightier, denser weave than most. Brushed an extravagant 10 times on both sides to be about as soft as soft gets.

When we first sold them, our European manufacturers (English blokes at the time) felt it was wasteful to make a fitted sheet that was brushed on both sides, since the underside would not be slept on. In pursuit of quality we persisted, and the nice folks across the pond eventually accommodated.

That was during the energy shortage of the 1970s. You look like you weren’t even born then, but trust us, after the price of oil spiked, thermostats were turned down faster than the volume of dad’s station wagon radio when “Jive Talkin’” came on.

So we invited customers to warm up in flannel. And they’ve indulged ever since. Lately, in Pin Dot and Wisteria flannels, too.

Still, before you join the bedding connoisseurs, a few cautions.

GARNET HILL FLANNEL SHEETS CAN MAKE YOU LATE FOR WORK.

The BEST bed to climb into on a cold winter’s night is one made with Garnet Hill Flannel sheets! I’ve been buying them for years and it’s one of the only things I actually like about winter.”

THEY MAY CHANGE YOUR SPOUSE.

My husband even commented on how nice his sleep has been since putting them on the bed … now that’s results! :)”

BUT THERE ARE TWO THINGS THEY WON’T DO.

They don’t pill like every other flannel sheet I ever met.”

Little or no shrinkage.”

ALSO, THEY WON’T ENCOURAGE YOU TO CHANGE THE BED VERY OFTEN.

I am almost ready to pass on Garnet Hill flannel sheets that I bought in 1991.”
