How cold out does it have to be to put the flannel sheets on your bed?

I am for sure putting mine on when it stays in the 30's at night.

  • Mine are on already, I put them on at the beginning of the month, too. It's been getting down into the 30's at night so on they went!

    For the mommas that use 'em year round, have you thought about getting cotton jersey sheets? Those are the ones made out of "t-shirt" material; soft like flannel only lighter weight for the warmer times of the year.

  • I already have them on our bed...I think I put the first set on the beginning of October.

  • That sounds good to me when it's that cold, but my DH gets way too hot when he sleeps. He usually kicks the sheets off no matter how cold it is. I agree with the previous poster about the pillow too. I like to flip my pillow to the cool side. :-)

  • I don't put them on until it's cool enough at night that the house actually gets down to the 60 degrees we have the thermostat set at overnight. On the other hand, I usually don't manage to switch back to plain sheets until July.

  • I use flannel all the time as I like the feel of it better. DH sleeps with only a sheet at all times including winter and I personally have at least one blanket if not two.

  • DH is too warm blooded for flannel. Otherwise, when it gets below 40 at night, I'd do it.

  • Mine aren't going on until I've passed through menopause and these damn night sweats stop.

  • I put a down-filled duvet comforter on my bed when it gets cold. I don't like the feel of flannel. I love the usual smooth sheets.
