Do I need to pre-wash organic cotton flannel bedding?

I bought this new cute sheet set and am thinking on using it today, but I am to sick to go to the laundromat. How necessary do you think it is to wash bedding (sealed in a package) before using it first time?
I'd sniff it and check for a scent that you can't tolerate. Not saying that its sterile, but a dry sheet in a package can't support microbial critters - you're unlikely to catch anything new with the sheets. Probably want to wash them in the next couple of days to keep yourself from re-catching what you have.
Better to sleep in the unprewashed sheets than it would be to sleep in the sheets containing your contagion.
