Flannel sheets are the seasonal hack for making sure you get a good night’s rest. This set from Upstate is made with upcycled fibers and organic cotton to deliver warm, breathable bedding that’s also sustainable. The fabric is woven on traditional looms in Northern Portugal, and the flannel is brushed to add an extra level of softness. The best part about these sheets, however, is the fact they’ve got a “Top or Bottom” tag indicator—so no more guessing if you’ve got the sheet laid out correctly.
