Posted by Michelle on Jul 13, 2021

If you are looking to stay warm this winter, flannelette sheets are the perfect way to keep your body warm at night. Unfortunately just like many other things in life, if you don't take care of your flannelette bedding, you are going to find that your flannelette sheets are not going to last! We thought we'd take a moment and write this blog so that you know how to best maintain your flannelette bedding.

Let's take a look at some of the most popular questions we get regarding maintaining flannelette sheets!

How do I stop my flannelette sheets from pilling?

The best way to stop flannelette sheets from pilling is choosing a high quality flannelette sheet set to begin with! Our range at My Linen is a great choice. Otherwise there are a few things you can do to help prevent pilling.

Reducing friction is a great way to prevent them from pilling and one great way to do this is to turn your sheets and pillowcases inside out so that the side you sleep on is protected.

Another great way to protect your flannelette sheets is to wash them in cold or warm water, but never hot water. The hotter the warmer, the easier it is for the fibres to break and start pilling.

Can I tumble dry flannelette sheets?

We would always recommend you check the care instructions on the product you are actually buying instead of guessing from a blog post what your flannelette sheets can handle, but most flannelette sheets are able to be tumble dried on a warm setting.

It is recommended though like with any sheet, if you want to increase the longevity of your bedding do not use the tumble drier. Leave it to dry naturally in the sun and your bedding will last a lot longer. A tumble drier increases the amount of friction your sheets receive, and that is not good.

What is the best way to wash flannelette sheets?

Again, we would always recommend you check the care instructions on the actual product you have, but in general, flannelette sheets are able to be gently machine washed on a warm temperature setting. This is typically the recommended way to wash your flannelette bedding, but always make sure you check the product label before doing anything.
