The 10 Best Flannel Sheets in 2023

Flannel sheets keep you comfortable on chilly fall and winter nights

Best Flannel Sheets Badge

When you think of flannel do you also think about Celtic plaid? You’re not alone! In reality, these two don’t necessarily have to go together.

Flannel refers to a woven fabric, often cotton or wool, which is soft to the touch. Since flannel is often milled and raised, it retains heat well, making it an ideal fabric if you want to stay warm. 

While flannel may bring lumberjacks and tartan clothing to mind, it’s often made in both solid and patterned designs. Finding a design or color that matches your existing bedroom decor is a cinch with our list of the top 10 best flannel sheets.

We’re here to help you find the best flannel sheets, plaid or not, to pair with your mattress (or a new mattress) and keep you comfortable on chilly fall and winter nights.

Read on to find the perfect flannel sheets to complement your bed. 

1. Pinzon Signature 190-Gram 100% Cotton Heavyweight Velvet Flannel Bed Sheet Set

91wIPAcgQ1L. AC SL1500

The Pinzon Signature Velvet Flannel Bed Sheet Set is the best of the best, which is why it tops our list of the 10 best flannel sheets. With a reasonable price, and superior quality and comfort, this flannel sheet set is a must-have to blend sophistication with comfort.

Unfortunately, if you are still using a full or twin-sized mattress, skip ahead, because these sheets are only available for queen-sized mattresses and larger. However, you may want to keep reading anyway, because who knows, these sheets may be the deciding factor of whether or not you upgrade to a larger mattress.  

Weighing in at 190 grams, these sheets are on the heavier side, and perfect if you want to get that extra cuddly feel during crisp fall evenings. This sheet set uses 100% imported cotton from the cork capital of the world, Portugal.

The double-napped cotton material provides an unmatched velvety feel that will have you looking forward to crawling into bed. Furthermore, the cotton is combed, a process that arranges the fibers parallel to one another for a stronger, more durable fabric. 

These sheets come in a variety of colors and patterns, some more unique and modern than others. The sheets are machine-washable and able to be tumble dried, eliminating any excuses for dirty bedding –– sorry, fellas.

2. Ultrasoft Comfort Flannel Sheet Set

Ultrasoft Comfort Flannel Sheet Set

We expect some of the highest quality products from a company over 100 years old, and we are not disappointed in L.L.Bean, the manufacturer of the Ultrasoft Comfort Flannel Sheet Set. We also expect a company based out of Maine to create warm and comfortable products for cold winters, and again they didn’t let us down.

Unlike our number one pick for the best flannel sheets, individuals with twin-sized and full mattresses can purchase a set of these sheets so everyone in the family can experience them. 

This flannel sheet set weighs in at a substantial 5 ounces (approximately 142 grams), and are about 25% lighter than our number one pick, the Pinzon Signature flannel sheets. This 25% reduction in weight makes this sheet a better option for year-round use. These sheets are also manufactured in Portugal. If you’re starting to pick up on a common theme of Portugal and flannel products, it’s because this country, along with China, is the world’s leading producer of dyed flannel. 

If soft pastel colors are what you look for in bedding, this flannel set was made for you. Choose between eight soothing and relaxing colors to complement your bedroom. If you’ve ever owned flannel bedding or clothing, you know that the first time you wash and dry them leaves copious amounts of lint in the dryer filter.

These sheets leave some lint in your dryer, but the buildup decreases with each washing, and is minimal compared to similar flannel. L.L.Bean’s flannel was constructed to resist shrinking, fading, and those pesky balls of thread called pilling that seem to accumulate on flannel cloth.

  • Size: Queen, King, Twin, Full
  • Color: Bay Blue, Heather Gray, Mineral Green, Driftwood, Natural, White, Sunlight, Mariner Blue

A classic hemstitch on your bedding can take it from drab to fab. The Garnet Hill Hemstitched Supima Flannel Bedding is sure to add supreme luxury. This bedding comes in at the number four spot on our list of the best flannel sheets because of the luxury material used in its construction.

The long fibers aligned in rows minimize breakage and increase durability.

10. Royal’s Heavy Soft 100% Cotton Flannel Sheets

Royal's Heavy Soft 100% Cotton Flannel Sheets

Imagine yourself on a business trip out of town, after a hard day of work. You’re tired and all you want to do is to check into your hotel and go to sleep. When you’re finally ready for bed, you pull back the sheets and get in. Those soft, dense, cool hotel sheets are the kind you will receive when you purchase Royal’s cotton flannel sheets. Best of all, unlike the sheets at actual hotels, these are reserved just for you (and maybe your partner). You’ll dread getting out of the simplicity and elegance of this product in the morning. 

Weighing in at 170 grams, these sheets are some of the more substantial on our list. They are advertised as 100% natural cotton, but do not have the organic certifications that some of the other sheets we reviewed have. You may be surprised by the softness that increases after each washing, because as these flannel sheets are used, they continue to soften. 

You can machine wash these sheets and tumble dry on low. However, the manufacturer advises against bleaching these sheets, even the white ones. While you can find some of the colors in other flannel sheets on our list, the sea green color is only available in Royal’s cotton flannel sheets. Only one pillowcase comes with this sheet set, so you may want to consider purchasing another one, which you can for an additional $19.99. 


  • Material: 100% cotton
  • Size: Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, Split King
  • Color: White, Ivory, Blue, Taupe, Gray, Sea
