Choosing bedding for the summer is something that you need to do to ensure your comfort. Sometimes even with portable or even overhead fans, the hottest of those summer nights can keep you up and alert and drenched in sweat. Nobody needs that after a long day’s work right? Here are some of the things that you can do to make sure that your summer bedding is spot on this year.
Choose Cotton and Wool
Now you are probably going to think why even mention cotton and wool in the same sentence right? It seems like wool is something that you would choose for the winter. But amazingly wool has the ability to regulate temperature according to the climatic conditions while also helping your body regulate its correct temperature. This means that in winter you will be kept warm and that in summer you will be cool with wool. Summer quilts can also be chosen in cotton as it is one of the most breathable fabrics around. They do not trap air around your body. if you want the fabric to be more breathable look for a lower thread count as opposed to the usually recommended higher thread count. This is because, as the thread count increases, the tightness of the fabric increases as well making it less breathable.
Silk and Satin Fabrics
Sheets made out of these fabrics in general have a blend of nylon, polyester and silk. They are really cool to the touch and also has a rather light weight as well as decadent feel to it. They may be a little too pricey though, but if you are looking to indulge, this is your best choice.
Bamboo and Linen
In addition to being an eco-friendly fabric, bamboo is also a very renewable resource. They feel really luxurious and are also filled with anti-bacterial qualities. The nature of bamboo fabric allows it to keep its temperature regulated which means that you will not be too cold or too warm with this as your bedding. Linen is one of the most popular fabrics for clothing during the summer. It is lightweight and breathable and those qualities make it an ideal choice for summer bedding as well. Both of the materials have gained a lot of popularity in the recent past and therefore they are easily accessible as well. Make sure you buy the fabric of the correct quality from reliable sellers so that you can enjoy your bedding.
When Choosing Your Comforters, Coverlets and Blankets
Depending upon your sheets and the material they are made of, you should always choose blankets in the same fabric or material that is lighter. You can have a thick coverlet or a blanket at the foot of your bed or you could just keep it ready to use in a cupboard so that if you feel a sudden chill. You can always stay cosy. These are just a few ways in which you can choose your summer bedding and avoid uncomfortable night sweats this summer.
