The Garnet Hill Guide to Flannel Bedding

It all began with a quest for the very best…

Our story began when our founders traveled to Europe and first experienced the exceptional quality of flannel sheets made from pure cotton. When they realized they couldn’t find this same quality in the U.S., the seed was sown for what would later become America’s first natural fibers catalog company, and our first product remains a favorite today, our pure-cotton Signature Flannel Bedding.

From those humble beginnings in 1976, in a sugar shack in northern New Hampshire, Garnet Hill became the first purveyors of English flannel to the US. In the years that followed, during the energy crisis, flannel’s popularity grew significantly as customers soon discovered they could stay warm and cozy sleeping in flannel while turning down their thermostat at night.

Garnet Hill History

Today, we offer 5 flannel fabrications to help customize your warm night’s sleep.

1. Our warmest flannel: Signature Flannel Bedding

This is the same quality of the original flannel that started Garnet Hill. It’s still crafted with old-world methods in family-owned European mills. It’s still made with Garnet Hill–exclusive yarns spun for greater softness, and tightly woven for a weightier feel and more durable finish. Like all our flannel bedding, it is gently brushed multiple times on both sides by skilled artisans. Made from 100% cotton and meets STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification.

2. Our most luxurious flannel: Supima® Flannel Bedding

Woven from the finest, American-grown, extra-long-staple Supima® cotton, these flannel sheets are less likely to pill. Exquisitely soft and exceptionally warm, this bedding has a special velvet finish for luxurious smoothness and elegant drape. Brushed multiple times on each side for enhanced softness, this bedding is 100% Supima® cotton and meets STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification.

3. Our softest flannel: Cozy Organic-Cotton Flannel Bedding

Organic-Cotton Flannel Bedding is so cozy and extra soft, we put it in the name. Designed to mix and match again and again, this flannel bedding is offered in the most colorful options, patterns, and prints. Like the other styles, it’s brushed multiple times on each side for softness. It is woven from 100% organic cotton and meets STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification.

4. Upcycled warmth: Eco Heather Organic-Cotton Flannel Bedding 

Responsibly crafted in a beautiful blend of recycled and organic cotton, this bedding is our feel-good, do-good eco flannel. It uses 50% recycled cotton from post-consumer textile waste to help keep textiles out of landfills. The other 50% is organic cotton farmed without pesticides, GMOs, or chemical defoliants.

It has a heathered effect which gives this bedding an elegant tonal quality. Brushed multiple times on each side for softness and meets STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification.

5. An elevated essential: Cotton & Cashmere Flannel Bedding

Our fine cotton flannel gets even finer thanks to a generous touch of cashmere. Cotton & Cashmere Flannel Bedding offers exquisite warmth with sophisticated modern detailing. The darker hues feature a heathered effect for tonal shifts and flecks of color. Brushed multiple times for softness, like the other flannel styles in the collection. Made from 93% cotton and 7% cashmere and meets STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification.
