Getting To Know Your Sheets

Your sheets matter
Good beds become great with the right set of sheets. And we’re not
talking about thread count. Your mattress is one piece of your sleeping
puzzle and having sheets that work with you is the best way to make sure
your sleep stays complete.
Cotton, microfiber, and lyocell (Tencel) fibers have very real impacts on your
bed’s microclimate, which includes temperature and humidity levels.
Knowing what you need for you slumber is the first step in getting better
sleep from your sheets.
Fibers that feel good
There are three main types of sheets: cotton, microfiber, and lyocell or
Tencel as it’s branded. Cotton is the most common type of sheet and it’s
created using an interlaced weaving of cotton fibers. Cotton sheets are
generally okay, but if you sleep hot or with a partner, you might run into
problems as they absorb heat and moisture. For typical use, cotton sheets do
the trick with minor drawbacks.
Microfiber sheets are great for kids’ beds or as a set for a guest room
because they’re wrinkle resistant, durable and soft-to-touch. With microfiber
sheets, you’ll have an easier time washing them and they will last a good
while. They are better than cotton at promoting air flow, but they can still be
an issue for hot sleepers and will absorb moisture. Overall, microfiber sheets
are a step up from cotton and can improve sleep in a real way.
Lyocell sheets, typically branded as Tencel, are the crème de la crème of the
sheet world. These sheets are created using cellulose fiber from dissolved
plant pulp. Due to this construction, they are extremely soft, hypoallergenic,
breathable and durable. The cool thing about lyocell sheets is that they
automatically wick moisture and draw excess heat away from the body.
These sheets are highly recommended if you’re looking to take your sheet
game to the next level.
Don’t let your sheets get mixed up
If you wash and dry your sheets with your towels, stop. The coarse
fibers from your towels get mixed up with the softer fibers of your sheets
when tossed in the washing machine and dryer together. Over time, your
once soft sheets will feel scratchy because of those rough towel fibers that

are now intertwined. Make sure to wash and dry your sheets with similar
quality fibers to preserve their feel for longer.
