5 Truths About Bedding

5 Truths About Bedding

Sure, the blue light from your cell phone could be affecting your sleep, or your sleep schedule might be out of whack because you check your emails right before bed. But, did you know that something as simple as your bed sheets or pillowcases could be throwing off your sleep? 

Here are five truths about bedding that we’ve researched so you can improve your sleep.

Bamboo Viscose Blends Are Higher Quality 

Your bed sheets could be the reason you are tossing and turning at night from hot sweats. The truth is you need a higher-quality sheet that wicks away moisture and protects you from overheating. Bamboo Viscose blended sheets have thermal-regulating properties that balance your body’s temperature, making them the more breathable and cooling option compared to other standard bedding. Plus, they’re softer than silk and stronger than cotton.

Higher Thread Counts Are Outdated

You may have heard that the higher the thread count, the better the sheets. The truth is thread count doesn’t always equal luxury. What you should be searching for in bedding is the quality of the material. Fabrics made with Bamboo Viscose and Microfiber Polyester blends have an ultra-tight knit that makes them softer and more durable than even the highest thread count of Egyptian cotton. They are also hypoallergenic which means they are gentler on the skin and can ward off common non-living allergens. Not to mention, this material is wallet-friendly. 

Your Detergent Could Be A Bad-Sleep Culprit

If you suffer from a sensitive nose or skin, it might be a combination of the material of your bedding and the detergent you are using to wash them. Pillowcases that are silky smooth and feature a high bamboo viscose content stay fresher 3x longer than alternate fabrics and are hypoallergenic. Plus, detergent packs made without harsh chemicals, chlorine, phosphates, dyes, or artificial fragrances are a much safer solution for removing soil on your sheets. Detergent and pillowcases made with simpler ingredients may benefit your skin, your bedding, and your sleep.

Bedding Lifespan Matters

Quality bedding has a longer lifespan than most standard bedding. For example, Cosy’s Everyday Bed Sheets are crafted to resist stains and fading, as well as resistant to wear and tear after washing. Their premium-grade material is durable and stays fresher for longer, which means fewer trips to the washing machine. You shouldn’t need to keep purchasing new bedding because it started to pill after a single wash. The less maintenance, the better you sleep.

Seasonal, Year-Round Bedding is Essential

When you sleep better, you feel better. Pillowcases, bed sheets, blankets, duvet covers, and any other bed covering should be made to last, and made to last through every season. Here’s the truth - your bedding should give you peace of mind so you can sleep and sleep well. 

Our Cosy Weighted Blanket promotes a healthier night's rest via deep-touch pressure stimulation technology, with a cover more breathable than cotton and natural ventilation that regulates your body's temperature even during those hot spring and summer months, or during those frigid winter months.
