Brushed to Perfection

Brushed cotton flannelette is quite possibly the cosiest and warmest fabric. A flat sheet in brushed cotton is like a warm hug on a chilly night.

Brushed cotton, also known as flannel or flannelette, is a 100% cotton fabric that has been machine brushed to create a soft, fuzzy surface. It's the cosiest fabric we have here at Secret Linen Store with exceptional thermal properties making it a top choice for a winter night.

Brushed cotton flat sheets are particularly popular during the colder months because they are so very warm. They are great to keep you cosy during chilly nights, but may be too warm for hot summer months.

Brushed cotton will be a little more prone to pilling than other 100% cotton fabrics. Pilling occurs when loose fibres on the surface of the fabric become tangled and form small balls or pills. The surface of brushed cotton has more loose fibres because of the brushing process so it's only normal for some pilling to happen. However, there are some steps you can take to reduce pilling:

- follow the care instructions

- avoid rough handling that can cause excessive friction

While some initial pilling may occur with brushed cotton, it tends to lessen over time as the loose fibres are gradually removed.
