Fleece sheets? Am I the only one...

seeing SPARKS all over the place now? It's way too dry here to be messing with hot, STATIC-Y sheets. Fleece has always irritated my skin. No thank you. I just don't get it.

I love my cotton sheets.

I have these sheet and I've never gotten shocked from them, not even when taking them out of the dryer. They also are not hot. I'm hot natured, I sleep with a fan blowing on me every night of the year. These sheets are soft and snuggly and comfortable. I loved them so much I couldn't bear not using them, so they've stayed on my bed all summer and I'm still not hot or sweaty on them.

Ditto. Cotton breathes.

It doesn't get cold enough here for fleece or flannel or any of that stuff. {#emotions_dlg.bored}

I LOVE my fleece. It gets to be so damp and cold in WI and my fleece is wonderful. I just assume dryer sheets are a part of the deal -otherwise snap/crackle! But in the winter I wear silky pant/top to bed so I don't stick - I hate that even worse than being cold. I put the fleece on already as it froze last night and is due to again tonight. It will be May before the fleece comes off permanently - at least til the fall again.

I like the feel on cool sheets on my skin when I first get into bed. No, won't be buying the fleece or flannel sheets.

I have had fleece sheets on the bed year round since I first discovered them. We split our time between MI and FL. Have never had a static problem with them. They are not hot; I am menopausal and feel comfy at all times. I really can't wait to jump into bed at night because they feel so luxurious. It is just a bonus they are SO cheap!!! I can buy four sets for what one set of good cotton sheets cost. YEA!

Haven't tried fleece yet, but I've used high-quality flannel (Bean and Lands End) for over twenty years now. They're actually on my bed tonight for the first time this season. It will be next June before I switch back to my 400 thread count cottons.

I love my fleece sheets! I have never noticed static with them either. Midwest winters are miserable and no heat in the bedroom (that's the way we like it). I must get into a warm bed or it takes forever to get warm so that I can sleep.

I have been using fleece sheets now for two years. I love them. they feel so good. However, last year, I guess the air was drier or something I got sparks and static galore. I am hoping for the best year. I will try and add two dryer sheets to the dryer next time I wash them. I am hoping it helps because I really do love them.

I dont find them hot at all and I am even at that time in life.

I do not like "polar fleece". I only use a light weight flannel type sheet or plain cotton with quilts and/or down blanket on top during the winter. I do not like to be too hot when I sleep. These are definitely not for me.

I love to laugh and dance......

Midwest weather + fleece sheets, I can completely understand. I'm from WI. But in Vegas, there's pretty much no moisture, so you get sparked just touching something...anything...anytime. I can just imagine the sparking light show in my bed with fleece! I am looking for some good flannel for winter, though.

Loved them back north when we lived in an old drafty two story wood frame house. When it gets below zero outside, you need every advantage you can get. When it gets chilly here, I just throw on a down comforter.

I use flannel sheets...and I get sparks from them once in a while...I hate that...didn't want to take a chance on Poly Polar Fleece....

I bought these when they first came out and I LOVE them. I had a home in Atlanta as well as in DC and these went with me year round. They are very light in weight but not warm as much as cozy. I have the Malden Mills blanket on the bed now and the nights are still fluctuating and DH is always comfortable. They wear well, are indestructible and no static. DH is picky and even he wanted another set. Great quality and great price. JMHO

I don't get it either. Unless you live in Northernmost Barrow Alaska or are a member of the scientific expeditions in Antartica I don't see a need. I'm from Washington state originally and we didn't even do flannel. Always regular cotton to ensure healthy skin free of rashes. I like my Cotton 400-1000 Thread count.

Usually the people who don't like fleece sheets are the ones who haven't tried them. I don't find them hot at all and they are so decadently soft, like being inside a cotton ball. I live where the relative humidity is often as low as 6 or 7% and have not had any trouble with static electricity. I do use fabric softener on them mainly so they won't attract dog hair, of which I have plenty. I don't like flannel sheets but love polar fleece.

Oops! Did I roll my eyes out loud?

Ok ,I live in the middle of Texas and yes it is hot here. I sleep on top of my Polar Fleece Comforter adds comfort to my bed. Now as it gets colder here yet not as cold as up north it still gets cold and these sheets do work then. I have two sets and just bought another and my Son has a set. When it does get cold here and it will I will use these. {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

I can't use fleece blankets (too hot) so I wouldn't try fleece sheets. I love cotton sateen sheets, and 100% cotton quilts.

To each her own!!!

I will tell you that my fleece sheets are the ONLY thing that I look forward to in the new york winters. No shocks-never too hot-always just right!

I got fleeced the last time. Their not pulling the wool over my eyes again.
