Flannel Sheets = Game Changer

I live in the north where winters are harsh so I pull out all the stops when it comes to keeping warm. I will do anything and everything to keep warm, including using my towel warmer as a way to heat up my workout clothes before putting them on in the morning. Our heat broke the other day and we had to spend one night in a house that was 50 degrees. Thankfully we were able to get it fixed immediately the next morning, but I was able to put my LL Bean Ultrasoft Flannel Sheets to the test!

I’ve owned flannel sheets growing up, but none of them were overly nice or of good quality. LL Bean’s version, however, is a game changer. They make my bed way warmer in the winter since they’re thicker than your average flannel sheet set. I actually notice a difference using these sheets from the time I climb into bed at night.


The reason LL Bean’s are the best is because they will not pill over time (a common problem with regular flannel sheets), making them last way longer. Owning things longer = saving money over time. They are also super soft even after washing them often, which is normally a problem with regular flannel sheets.

I will never recommend something on my blog that I do not use and love, and these sheets are both very used and very much loved. We normally rotate between 3-4 sets of sheets, but we’ve taken this set, wash them, and immediately put them back on. It’s just a little step towards a warmer winter that makes a big difference.

    I could not agree more! We notice a big difference between our L.L. Bean flannel sheets and the other brands we have. They are a game changer for Massachusetts winters. I only have one set but I will not buy any other flannel sheets from now on.

      They are amazing! I’ve gone through too many harsh winters not to use the best. 🙂

      Thanks for reading!

      LL Bean a few years back. I believe Land’s End has a cute plaid one right now! 🙂
