It's nearly that time of year to retire the cold-to-the-touch cotton sheets and prep the bed with cozy flannel sheets. If yours are getting tired like our penguin sheets, consider turning those into dishtowels or swiffer pads, and investing in a set of organic flannel sheets. Why Flannel? For me, the long warm-up time of regular sheets during the winter makes crawling into bed nearly painful! Flannel sheets almost seem warm to the touch and keep us warmer while we're in there, allowing us keep the heat down low. Why Organic? Because of the chemicals and dyes used in production. Think of how much time you spend in bed, wrapped in your cozy sheets (this also helps justify the price). Sleep better knowing that they're free from potentially harmful chemicals.
Search for a local retailers of organic bed ware through Coop America, the Organic Trade Association or Dane Buy Local. Retailers such as Coyuchi (a visit to one of their stores is highly enjoyable) have multiple locations stocked with soft, inviting bedding or visit OrganicStyle to order online.
