What is Flannelette?
Flannelette is a thick, yet lightweight material that is extremely durable – you can run it through the washer and dryer lots of times before it will show any sign of wear. It is made out of loosely spun cotton and is a breathable fabric.
Flannelette is also known as brushed cotton. The brushing process creates a soft pile on the sheet, which holds the warmth in well and creates that soft, cozy feel! Flannelette sheets are available in a variety of colors and sizes and are a popular choice for baby’s cots. If you are looking for an inexpensive option, flannelette is a good choice.

What is Egyptian Cotton?
Egyptian Cotton is traditionally an extremely high quality fabric. The cotton is grown in humid conditions along the banks of the River Nile, which helps long cotton fibers to grow. It’s these long cotton fibers that make Egyptian Cotton unique, soft and long-lasting.
100% Cotton sheets are a natural product and so are ideal if you want to avoid man-made fabrics. Cotton bed linen is soft and smooth, providing a better quality fabric than a polyester cotton mix. Pure cotton sheets are also much cooler and while they are still very durable they do require more ironing than polyester cotton sheets! Compared to Egyptian Cotton sheets, general cotton sheets have smaller threads but are still soft and durable.
