Assuming you live somewhere that actually gets cold, do you switch?

I switch to a thick and fuzzy blanket in the winter. I have a fuzzy, pea green blanket that I love.

Yes. And layers of down and wool blankets as it gets colder and colder and colder...

Yes; I love flannel sheets, and a synthetic down comforter.

same sheets all year round , no winter specific sheets. I do have a lightweight duvet for warm weather but can't remember the last time I've used it. When the weather gets cold I have a heavy candlewick for over the duvet

Same. We use a heavy blanket when winter comes.

Fleece not flannel. Much softer! Still using cotton sheets, but have broken out fleece blanket and fleece pyjamas. Hope to make it another month before super-cocooning.

A down blanket is quite enough for me.

I like my room to be about 65 Fahrenheit----which is actually fairly cold for most people.

Usually. If they are clean.

Now that I sleep on a futon with kakebuton, there aren't really any sheets involved. Unless they make flannel kakebuton covers... 8O

*goes to look*

I know I must be Canadian because I use them all year long. Or maybe it's just because I don't care for satin sheets at all.

Absolutely when I lived up north in a wood heated farmhouse. :D Also wool socks and wool cap. :D :D Sometimes water in the bedroom would freeze. :D
