We never really think about where we’re resting our heads, because sleeping in beds is the norm. But when you think about what type of bedding you’re sleeping on, that’s another story…
Depending on what size bed you have, you have to educate yourself about proper bedding. Proper bedding allows you to have the highest quality of rest and sleep, along with remarkable style and class. Be sure to put your money towards bedding that will last. You want your bedding to be a worthy investment. Undoubtedly, after many uses, bedding tends to droop and fade.
When you decide to replace your bedding, you need to decide what type of bedding you want. If you’re not sure how to buy sheet sets, you can mix and match sheet sets as you purchase, or you can go with a set preference of sheets, such as flat sheets over fitted sheets.
Another decision you’ll have to make is what kind of material you want your bedding to have. Of course, if you have a certain style to your home, you might have a particular color pallete already selected. Nonetheless, have you ever stopped to wonder about what kind of chemicals your bedding fabric was manufactured with?
If the thought of chemically infused bedding doesn’t attract you, then it’s time you acknowledge the alternative: organic linen sheets. To start making the transition towards organic linen sheets, you can get a set of flat sheets. Flat sheets are the sheets that go over the fitted sheets, although some people prefer to skip the flat sheets, and others choose to skip the fitted sheets; it?s all a matter of preference.
For those who’re interested in the benefits of linen sheets, it’s good to know that they?re light, soft, and breezy; their texture is thin and delicate, with a definite touch of luxury. The feel of linen is delicate, but it actually develops in texture, as time goes by. In other words, linen is stronger after it’s washed, because of the fibers that make up its fabric. Linen is made from flax seed. Flax yarns grow up to 20% in strength, once it?s wet.
Also, because linen is anti-static, you can add a mere 10% of flax to any type of clothing, and it will repel static electricity. Beyond the basics of beauty, linen is a fabric that’ll keep you cool, while simultaneously concealing you, as a bedding of comfort.
Linen is a breathable, airy material, so those who wear it as clothing, come up with a skin temperature that is three to four degrees Celsius below what it would be with other fabrics, such as cotton or silk. In fact, a recent study shows that linen clothing leads to 1.5 times less perspiration than cotton, and twice less perspiration that viscose.
Markedly, even though linen keeps you cool, that doesn’t mean it’ll make you cold. Rest assured, when the weather turns cold, linen bedding is made to capture the warmth of your body heat. The linen texture is comforting, in that it warms you, but it also cools your senses. Aside from the pleasurable benefits of linen, this fabric can lessen skin and respiratory allergies or sensitivities. The linen fabric is designed to filter, so your bedding stays fresher, longer.
Comparatively, linen does not have the heaviness of cotton, nor the sealing of silk. Linen is a sensual fabric that adheres to its surroundings, allowing your bedding to stay dry and clean. With less sweat prone bedding, you don’t have to switch out your bedding as often, and you don?t have to keep buying replacements.
Notably, if you do need new bedding, you can consider linen, but it’s best to know the best type of linen. If you want to rest easy, the best type of linen for you should be fully organic and toxin free. Organic linen sheets are completely chemical free. Most companies treat their bedding sets with chemicals, in order to keep the fabric from getting wrinkled, in addition to keeping the fabric fresh.
Needless to say, perhaps sleeping on bedding that’s been processed by chemicals isn?t the wisest of moves. Let yourself experience what’s truly natural!
