This is just before thanksgiving & the temps have dropped. Sometimes I'd wake up cold which is a bad way to start the day. The flannel sheets are a lifesaver. Every time i think of going to bed, I fondly anticipate how warm & snuggly it's going to be. The sheets are thick and soft. I've been recommending them to just about everyone. Not sure how they stand up to long-term wear, but I'm willing to find out.
