Flannel sheets for restless sleepers?

Is there anything I can do to make my new flannel sheets less...sticky? I am apparently a very restless sleeper and the last two nights have had terrible nights' sleep after repeatedly waking up with my pj's seemingly velcroed to my sheets.

The sheets are "triple-brushed flannel" and have a 170 gram weight, if that helps. They are wonderfully cozy for the frozen northern tundra where I live, but I'm going to have to go back to cotton if I can't figure this out. Would extra washing, or different washing (hot water, air drying, etc.) help make them less like velcro? For those of you that do have flannel sheets, is this common? Do you just learn to live with it? Because right now I am waking up ~ 10x/night tangled and panicked and something's gotta give.
Right now I sleep in a cotton t-shirt and undies; for a variety of reasons I'm not really open to sleeping au naturale although that seems like the obvious solution, but I would be willing to consider pajamas in different materials if that would help.
