Flannel bedding - traditional winter bedding

Flannel bedding is considered to be a traditional winter bedding. Those who live in colder states, will remember this type of bedding already from their childhood. Flannel is made mostly of cotton in a special technique, that gives the fabric a fluffiness and therefore excellent warming properties. Flannel is also very soft, so it's specially loved by kids.

If you choose the flannel bedding, then keep in mind, that you'll need to some other bedding in summers.

As the flannel fabric is loosely weaved, then it requires a special care. You have to look after it well, so it doesn't shrink - don't spin it too much, and don't use high temperatures. If taken care improperly, flannel bedding can not only shrink, but it can also get hard. Note to follow the care instructions when washing it.

Fleece bedding - innovative winter bedding

Fleece bedding is a relatively new product in the market. This type of bedding is usually created from polyester. Although it's polyester, due to the special technique in which the fleece is made, it becomes fluffy, and therefore warm. This bedding will be good for the cold season, while in the warm season, you'll need to put it away for sure. It's because polyester, doesn't allow the skin to breathe, so it'll not regulate the body temperature.

The only issue could be that because of the fleece texture, it may attract more dust and animal hair than other types of bedding. The fleece bedding is great for those who like innovations and experiments.
