When it comes to choosing bed linen, we have endless options. Starting from silk, polyester to variety of blends that are available in the market, but which one is the best for you? Does fabric of our bed linen even make a difference in our sleep?
When we sleep we must be as comfortable as possible and our sleepwear and bedsheets play a major role in how well we sleep. We must be cool enough to drop off to sleep but warm enough to be comfortable. Certain fabrics are more comfortable and durable than others and when it comes to a good night’s sleep, nothing can beat a good quality cotton bedsheets.
Humans have been using cotton for more than 5000 years and it is not just a coincidence. The impeccable cotton has several health and environmental benefits which makes it famous for all the right reasons. Here are a few great things about cotton which makes it a perfect fit for bedding?
First and foremost, Cotton is a breathable fabric that absorbs heat and perspiration from your bodies which keep you cool & comfortable throughout night. It is cool in the summer and dry in the winters – all thanks to its natural breathability. It is a soft fabric that doesn’t irritate the skin, and because it’s thicker than other fabrics, it feels luxurious.
Another USP of cotton is its strength. it has a high tensile strength, making it strong, durable and less likely to rip or tear. It is 30 percent stronger when wet, and usually last longer than its synthetic counterparts.
A good quality cotton mostly has minimal to zero contact with harmful chemicals and it is hypoallergenic which is why it’s a perfect solution for people who have allergies or sensitive skin. it is a primary reason why cotton is used in medical and baby products.
It’s relatively easier to manage as most types of the cotton bedding linen can be easily washed in machine.
Cotton is super Sustainable.
Last but not the least, sustainability is another important reason why we love cotton. Humans have been cultivating cotton for more than 5,000 years and is now grown in more than 80 countries using less than 2% of the world’s cropland.
No large-scale fabric production is 100% environmentally friendly but cotton production comes pretty close. Cotton is a renewable source of material as the plant regrows and can be replanted. Organic cotton is becoming increasingly prevalent which means that harmful chemicals are not used on the plants.
To ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing sleep, one must be mindful while choosing the right bed linen. Any cotton with more than 200 thread count is considered to be good and of premium quality.
