Good sleep allows us to be more energetic, healthier and happier. We should take into consideration every small detail in order to have a good night’s sleep. Bed sheet materials, for instance, affect sleep quality in many ways. In an interview for The Guardian Dr Chris Idzikowski, director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre, highlights that natural fibers are the best option when choosing your bedding.
Our fitted sheets are made of 100% cotton which has numerous benefits. Cotton is hypoallergenic and does not generate static electricity. Cotton products are comfortable for everyday use and easy to maintain at home. When choosing bed sheets that will be in prolonged contact with the skin, it is best to choose ones made of 100% cotton. Here is a short list of the main advantages of cotton:
- Kind to the skin
Cotton is soft and does not irritate the skin. Synthetic fibers often cause allergy flare ups and itchiness which decreases the sleep quality. In contrast, cotton feels delicate against the skin and provides great comfort throughout the night.
Cotton will keep you cool during summer months and will retain temperature during winter keeping you warm. It is a pure material of natural origin which makes it very breathable. It absorbs body sweat and allows it to evaporate. This also prevents bacteria from building up.
- Easy to maintain
Our cotton bed sheets non-iron and machine washable. Buying cotton bed linen is a good investment. Furthermore, cotton fabric is durable. No matter how often you wash your bed sheets, it will retain its qualities and serve you for a surprisingly long time.
