28 Feb, 2023

Cool Weather Change

When you feel that first chill in the air, it’s natures signal to start preparing for the cooler months ahead. The arrival of autumn is a good time to consider planning your bedding and sleepwear for sleeping in warm, cosy comfort. Discover our collection of snuggly flannel bedding to slumber in and soft, comfy brushed organic cotton sleepwear to sleep and relax in, designed with love for autumn and winter.


Flannel Fabric

Flannel, brushed cotton flannel or flanette are all terms used for bedding that is made from cotton where the fabric is treated differently to create a thicker softer feel. Flannel fabric is made by weaving fat cotton yarn into fabric then brushing the surface to create a fluffy texture. As the weave of the fabric is tighter, flannel fabric holds the warmth in, keeping you cosy through the night. Flannel bedding feels buttery soft and snuggly to sleep in, making it perfect for the cooler months of autumn and winter.


Our Akaroa Flannel Collection

Our most-loved flannel bed linen collection made from brushed cotton, has been reimagined for autumn 2023 in new patterns and shades. For the cosiest bed possible, layer Akaroa Flannel sheets and pillowcases with an Akaroa Flannel duvet cover set, for a winter cocoon to hibernate in. Thoughtfully designed for every bed in your home, choose from versatile, reversible duvet cover sets and practical sheets sets, available in classic checks and stripes in shades of blue, white and natural.


Brushed Cotton Knit Fabric

Brushed cotton is a type of flannel fabric which is only brushed on one side. The brushed cotton knit fabric that our sleepwear is made from is slightly thinner than our flannel bedding, which makes the garments easy to wear, breathable and warm. Made from brushed organic cotton knit, this sustainable fabric has a slight stretch to it and feels wonderfully soft against your skin.
