Our Body Best™ Flannel Massage Table Sheets are loomed from 100% cotton. Flannel is known for its softness, and warmth. We recommend therapists and spas choose flannel bedding for their clients comfort during winter months. Many spas also prefer flannel bedding in highly air conditioned treatment rooms to provide that “cozy” feeling.

Why Choose Cotton Flannel

Flannel in itself is a loosely woven fabric made from wool, cotton, or in recent times synthetic fibres. Flannel is a soft woven fabric, of various fineness and “weights”. Original flannel fabrics where made from carded wool or worsted yarn.  Flannel may be brushed to create extra softness or remain unbrushed. Body Best™ Flannel sheets are double brushed for added softness and reduced pilling.

Are Flannel Sheets Warmer than Percale Sheets?

No, Flannel sheets are not warmer than regular sheets. Neither percale or flannel sheets generate heat. However the surface of flannel fabric is fluffy. The added air within the brushed surface of flannel sheets creates a good layer insulation, keeping the user “cozy” without feeling hot.

How to Care for Flannel Massage Table Sheets

  • Wash your flannel sheets in cold or warm water on the gentle cycle.
  • Add a cup of white vinegar (instead of bleach) to the rinse cycle. The vinegar will act as a brightening agent.
  • Add a liquid fabric softener to the rinse.
  • Dry on gentle cycle.
How to Wash Flannel Sheets
  • Use in cold water to reduce pilling. Warm water is okay if you cannot accept that cold water will adequately clean the bedding.
  • Wash the sheets separately.
  • Use a gentle detergent such as Eco-Max Natural Hypoallergenic Laundry Wash
  • A liquid fabric softener and  is recommended during the rinse cycle.
  • The washer setting should be set to gentle. This is extremely important as the cycle is slower and there is less motion in the washer. The washing process is hard on most soft fabrics like flannel  and will break down the fibres.
How to Dry Flannel Sheets
  • Drying flannel sheets using a gentle cycle. It may take a longer, but your sheets will last longer. The temperature should be set as low as possible. A gentle cycle combined with a cooler temperature will prevent shrinking as well as pilling.
How to Reduce Pilling on Flannel Sheets

Pilling on flannel sheets cannot be stopped entirely. This is the nature of brushed cotton fabric. However, pilling can be reduced with proper care.

Wash your sheets at least once before first use to remove the sizing. Sizing is often a chemical additive manufacturers use to keep fabrics and bedding wrinkle-free and stiff in the presentation packaging.

Before using your sheets

  • Wash sheets with a cup of white vinegar and cold water on gentle cycle. Always wash flannel sheets in cold or warm water with a gentle detergent.
  • Always select the gentle cycle when washing flannel.
  • Dry on gentle cycle.
  • Use the lowest temperature for drying.

It is important to be aware the quality of the flannel sheets you select have a lot to do with the advent of pilling. When purchasing flannel sheets, remember that thread count does not apply. Flannel quality is measured by the weight of the fabric per square metre. Our Body Best™ flannel sheets for massage tables and Massage Table Sheet Sets are produced using 6 oz and 8oz fabric weights.
