How to Give the Gift of Coziness

Funny thing about winter. In other seasons, rough weather – floods, hurricanes, tornadoes – gets us out of the house in a hurry, to safety. But fierce cold and snow keep us home. Where, if we’re lucky, we can snuggle up under warm flannel sheets until the storm passes.

Given as a gift, a set of flannel sheets says I care about you, and want you to be comfortable when the temperature drops. Find flannel sheets that are all-cotton, and made the traditional way, with a denser weave. Selecting a quality product makes for an unforgettable gift for someone special.

Our Signature Flannel sheets are the perfect option. Part of this bedding’s charm is that it’s crafted in a fifth-generation family-owned mill that’s been operating in Germany since 1885 —indeed, two of its present employees are the 4th generation of their families to work there. That’s the experience level needed to master the napping, or brushing, process that makes the flannel exquisite to the touch.

The technique is as much art as science. During the flannel-napping process, skilled craftsmen apply just the right amount of pressure to the material to open up cotton fibers without overstressing them. Depending upon humidity, temperature, and other factors, these flannel sheets will be napped up to 12 times on both sides.

We should all nap on flannel so exquisitely napped.
