Linen bedclothes are the best
Published on in Sleep
I recently switched from linen bedclothes (sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers) back to cotton bedclothes – bad idea. My sleep quality took a drastic hit.
Sometimes you notice the importance of something only after losing that thing. This is such a case.
I have been using linen bedclothes for almost two years.
Recently I started using a second set of bedclothes to make laundry days easier – no need to wash the bedclothes first thing in the morning if I have more than one set of bedclothes.
However, the second set of bedclothes is made of cotton. I didn't remember how bad cotton bedclothes are:
- Cotton doesn't breathe properly.
- Cotton feels "hard" (not soft).
It's possible that not all cotton bedclothes are bad, but mine are.
Last night I slept again with my linen bedclothes – and boy are they wonderful! I'll ditch the cotton bedclothes as soon as I have ordered a second set of linen bedclothes (so hopefully before next year).
