The UK is set to achieve record-breaking temperatures this week. But while some of us might love basking in the hot weather, others are suffering as the nights become unbearably hot. Sticky sheets that stay wet are a nightmare when it is too hot in your bedroom. But there are ways to keep when the weather is warm at night. One way is to choose cooling sheets, but which ones?
- Stick to natural materials like cotton and even bamboo. These wick away moisture and keep you dry.
- When choosing cotton, pick a low thread count. High count threads have a tighter weave which doesn’t allow the fabric to breathe properly.
- Tencel is a new fibre that draws moisture away from the body and helps to regulate body temperature.
Here are our recommendations for the best cooling sheets:
The material used in these cooling sheets is a specially-engineered fibre made from polyester that allows superior breath-ability. This makes sure that moisture is not trapped in the sheets and against the body.
