When we stayed in the lovely b&b in France on our way home last December, the bed was beautifully decked out in cream flannelette/brushed cotton/winceyette. I'm never quite sure which is the correct name for this soft, cosy cotton with a raised brushed surface but I love it. I bought a pair of cream pillow cases ages ago for winter use and quickly followed this with a couple of duvet covers that go onto our bed for the coldest months. I like a cool bedroom and I'm not a fan of the electric blanket or even a hot water bottle, but this gorgeous bed linen in my winter necessity.
Just this week I found a new duvet cover, they aren't that easy to come by and tend to be in pastel candy stripes or pretty pretty patterns, not my thing at all.
This one is so so soft and as you can see goes really well with the Orla Kiely wool blanket that I pull up on particularly cold nights.
Incidentally we are loving our British made British wool duvet, we opted for the 3-4 seasons which is just the right weight. We've been using it now for a couple of months and I find I'm not overheating and throwing off the cover in the middle of the night like I used to. In fact I'm sleeping so well I hardly want to get out of bed in the mornings, no change there then.
