What kind of sheets should I use? Verlo Mattress explains

SPONSORED

You invest a lot of money in just the right bed for you, so make sure that your sheets are worthy.

Sheets are the part of the bed that your body comes into contact with every night, so make sure the fabric is sturdy, but most of all comfortable, to ensure a good night’s sleep. Scratchy, lumpy, pilling fabric is not what you want.

Combed Egyptian cotton is preferred by many people for comfort, as is pima cotton. The combing process removes impurities from the fabric for a smooth feel.

Do you prefer sateen or percale sheets? The terms refer to a particular type of weaving for cotton. If you like the crisp feel of cotton, this may be the best choice for you. The softest sheets, however, are usually made from synthetic microfiber.

If you live where the seasons change, you know that heavier sheets are warmer in winter and lighter weight sheets are cooler in summer. And even though microfiber is soft, it can be too warm for some on hot summer days.

It’s well known that sleeping cool offers a better night’s rest, so is a higher thread count better? A higher thread count means there are more threads woven together per inch of fabric. In other words, the fabric is tighter, which can offer more smoothness but may not be necessarily as cool

Those who suffer from night sweats might consider Egyptian cotton because it contains wicking capabilities to help absorb sweat. People with allergies would do well to buy mattress and pillow covers that offer protection against dust mites and other allergens. Down comforters are available that have been specially treated and constructed to avoid aggravating some common allergies to natural materials.
