Flannel sheets vs Cotton
Cotton and flannel are two very common words we often hear in the textile industry. Although most of us own and use clothes made of cotton and flannel, most of us don’t know the difference between cotton and flannel. To learn more let’s go.
What is Cotton?
Cotton is a soft white fibrous substance that grows around the seeds of the cotton plant (genus Gossypium in the family of Malvaceae) and is made into textile fiber and thread for sewing. The cotton plant is native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including Africa, the Americas, and India. The earliest use of cotton by humans dates back to 5000 BC.
What is Flannel?
Flannel is a soft woven fabric typically made of wool or cotton. It can be also made of synthetic fiber. This fabric is often used to make bed sheets, blankets, sleepwear, and tartan clothing. Flannel has been used since the 17th century, and it is supposed to be originating from Wales.
Caring for both flannel and cotton sheets is pretty straightforward and simple. Flannel sheets can be washed in hot, warm, or cold water and dried with little to no shrinkage. Flannel doesn’t wrinkle easily, so your sheets will always look nicely pressed.
Light-colored cotton sheets can be washed at any temperature, but hot and warm cycles are best for a thorough cleaning. Darkly or brightly colored cotton sheets need to be washed in cold water to prevent color fading and bleeding. Cotton sheets are known to shrink in the wash, though not an extreme amount. To prevent wrinkling, remove the sheets from the dryer immediately after it has stopped.
When it comes to extra warmth, flannel is the clear winner. If you consistently find yourself too cold in bed, flannel sheets could be the upgrade your bed needs. Flannel sheets may also save you some money on your heating bill in the winter if you adjust your thermostat a few degrees.
Cotton sheets, on the other hand, make for great year-round bedding and can be eco-friendly, since cotton is easily recyclable. Cotton sheets also come in multiple weaves and structures, which provides more of a variety to choose from than flannel sheets.
In a society where the price of everything is on a constant rise but wages are not, it is essential to a person’s lifestyle to maintain a budget and avoid spending big money on minor purchases. Flannel sheets are an affordable option to many that would prefer to warm their bed during colder winter months and are made from a fabric that not only encourages body heat but traps it into the sheets, leaving you toasty warm all night long. The reason these sheets are considered among the most affordable is that they are priced based on a weighted count, rather than a thread count.
