Laura Ashley Flannel Set Review
A Flinders flannel set is a cozy option to consider for winter. Made of cotton or wool with a brushed surface, it can help trap in body heat and retain warmth while still being breathable—though flannel tends to be heavier and more dense than other sheet materials. It’s also important to note that flannel sheets will generate significant lint buildup in the dryer, which can be mitigated by reducing washing times and avoiding putting them in the dryer when they’re still damp.
A solid choice for those looking for a more affordable flannel option, the Laura Ashley Home Premium Ultra Soft Flannel Sheet Set has a very pleasant, velvety feel to it. It’s also a little lighter than some of the other flannel sets we tested, at 160 GSM. The higher the GSM, the denser and warmer the fabric, and a tighter weave means the sheets will likely keep in more body heat.
Comfort Meets Style: Exploring the Appeal of Grey Lounge Knit Pants
These flannel sheets are crafted by a family-run mill in Portugal from American-grown Supima cotton, an extra-long staple fiber that promises superior strength and durability. It’s combed and brushed multiple times for added softness, and it has a velvet finish to seal in color and reduce pilling. It’s also GOTS certified, meaning it’s organic and safe for you and your family.
This flannel set includes a flat and fitted sheet and one or two pillowcases (depending on the size of the set) and is available in three plaid and three solid color options. It has a very nice, velvety feel to it and holds up well in the wash—there was no fading, pilling, or loose strings after washing.
