Listen to Expat - flannel sheets are heavenly in the winter. The first cold snap finds me dragging out the flannel sheets for all the beds. I love them.

Here's another question while we're on the topic of beds: what kind of sheets does everybody prefer? I want only 100% cotton sheets or (gulp) pure linen. (I can't afford to buy pure linen sheets, but I made some once when I found a great deal on some linen fabric and they are my favorite sheets, bar none.) I like high thread count cotton because they last longer, but I don't like the sateen ones that seem to dominate the market. The perfect cotton sheet for me is thick and just a little bit scratchy - like the ones from when I was a kid. What about ya'll?

You won't thank me when you find out how much they cost, Expat.

Flannel makes me claustrophobic (what doesn't?). A few years ago I made myself some nice roomy and snuggly flannel PJ's and I would get panic attacks every time I wore them to bed! I guess it doesn't breathe enough. I have tried the sheets and they aren't as bad, but still not a pleasant experience.

I have to have a top sheet and two comforters in the winter, only the top sheet in the summer.

You got a hugely good deal!!! Isn't it just the best feeling slipping into a bed with fabulous sheets? But you're right, I did kinda hijack this great thread ... I'll behave now.

Oh, I don't mind at all Fisher's Mom. I was being funny but it is hard to pull off sometimes in writing. I hate to offend anybody!

LPBeier - Sorry, had no clue this was already done.

I'm glad you understand! And BTW - I got the sheets at Overstock.com. They are having a huge sheet sell off. I may get another set!
