BEDDING TO HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER

Get set for sleep success with our top tips, whether it’s temperature issues or dust allergies that are keeping you up at night

Too hot, can’t sleep? Try our clever bedding

If you struggle with overheating in bed, you’ll be relieved to discover our Comfortably Cool range. The innovative materials work by moderating your body temperature, helping you to feel cool and fresh during the night. Try a Comfortably Cool mattress topper – made with 100% sustainably sourced cotton cover and featuring Climate Control tech to help regulate your body temperature. Check your duvet’s tog rating. The higher the number, the warmer the duvet. Luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen will help you maintain a comfortable temperature as you snooze.


Prevent cold feet, catch more zzzs

While lots of people overheat in bed, for others the opposite is true. Start by checking your duvet’s tog rating: the higher the tog, the warmer the duvet. A 10.5-tog duvet is a good choice for most of the year, while a 13.5-tog winter duvet will keep out the chill during the coldest months. Cosy bedding is your next priority. Look for duvet covers and sheets in brushed cotton or jersey (the same rule applies to nightwear), plus a stylish bedspread or throw to layer over the end of the bed and provide an additional insulating layer over chilly toes. Lastly, pull on a pair of thermal socks or luxurious cashmere socks on chilly nights.


Bamboo bedding to beat the dust allergies

One of the biggest causes of allergies is dust mites, tiny insects found in household dust. Symptoms are similar to those of pollen allergies: sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes, but can also include wheezing and shortness of breath – the last thing you want when you’re trying to nod off. Focus mite-busting efforts in the rooms where you spend most time: the living room and the bedroom. Bamboo-blend bedding is not only super soft but naturally antibacterial too, making it an affordable eco-friendly choice for sensitive sleepers.
