And they are just about ready to be taken out of the dryer and installed on the rack. Looking forward to tipping over tonight. Might even leave the window open a crack [:D] Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

I hate flannel sheets. I usually sleep in flannel boxers. The flannel/flannel interface is like velcro. If I roll over more than 3x in the night, I wind up mummified and my wife is freezing without any covers at all. Only thing worse than flannel is silk/satin. Has anyone ever seriously tried to sleep on these things? Exactly the opposite of flannel. It's so slick that whenever I put my head on the pillow, it (the pillow) would squirt out from under my head like spitting a watermelon seed. That really sucked. Plus, it's tough to get romantic when you can't get any "traction", if you know what I mean.[sex]

oh, i love it! the only thing better is the weight of a heavy down comforter...with the windows open, of-course!

They're plenty warm for sleepin! A little too hot for other things though, although the aforementioned "traction" issue might make it a toss up!!! [sex]

Sheets are a "grass is greener" kind of thing. If you have some crisp, cool, cotton sheets, they're great. If you then switch to flannel, they seem better. After a few weeks, you move on those "cotton jersey" sheets, and you're in heaven. Then, eventually you come back to the original sheets, and they seem better than the last ones. You just have to change sheet styles now and then. It's kind of like sleeping in a hotel.

Try Martha Stewart sheets and pillow cases... More threads per inch equals incredible feel... I look forward to crawling in with Martha everynight... [;)]

rain, if you have a tj maxx or marshalls store near you, they often have excellent prices on bedding. flannel sheets are nice in the winter...especailly with a down comforter.

I have a down comforter with a flannel cover and flannel sheets and flannel pillowcases. Heaven. Here's a picture of the bed and some of my girls: [img]http://www.student.smsu.edu/s/srv656s/funtoys.jpg[/img] Shawn

The trick is to only use the fitted flannel sheet, with no top sheet and just a down comforter. Avoids the "mummy" factor without losing the "traction" advantage.

Somewhat related, over a year ago I went out and bought a "feather bed thing" that lies on top of the mattress, under the fitted sheet. Man, talk about comfort. Sometimes you wake up in the same position you fell asleep in. A damn good investment. The traction is fine too.[:)]

Where's the AR?

Those feather bed things rock! You can turn down the heat to 32F at night and you are still warm sleeping.
