21 best flannel pajamas for women, chosen by our fashion team

There are a number of things to look out for when shopping for the best flannel pajamas, aside from selecting a print you love. Flannel is most commonly made from cotton, wool, or synthetic fibers, so it is important to pay attention to the fiber composition of a pair of pajamas as this will indicate the level of warmth. If you are after a set to keep you toasty, wool is your best bet. Whereas if you're after something that can be worn year-round for lasting comfort, we recommend opting for cotton, as cotton is great at regulating your body temperature and is breathable. 

You should also consider fastenings to ensure you get the right fit - do you prefer an elasticated waist or a tie-up one? Would you like button fastenings such as a traditional shirt silhouette, or a top or sweatshirt that you can slip over your head? Take these factors into account to ensure that you get the perfect pair of flannel pajamas for you.
