Bamboo Bedding for a good nights sleep

By , January 31, 2014 11:54 am

A regular good nights sleep is a necessary to maintain health and mental alertness. We all know that a balanced diet and regular exercise are vital for health but the benefits of these can be seriously undermined if you are  not sleeping well. Bamboo Bed Linen is rapidly becoming an aid  to restful sleep for many. Its beautiful soft silky feel and its many surprising attributes can help you get a refreshing night sleep and delivers real health benefits too.

The naturally breathable fibre of a Bamboo Duvet  balances your own temperature and that in the bed room .  Breathable Bamboo insulates the air around your skin balancing the micro-environment around your body keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

Regulating temperature and reducing perspiration at night, the bamboo duvet makes those who tend to overheat at night much more comfortable and also help those with poor circulation.  Bamboo duvets are light to sleep  under and yet are extremely comfortable. The natural bamboo floss in the duvet and the 100% bamboo covering repel dust mites so making Bamboo Duvets the natural choice for all those who suffer allergies, asthma, breathing difficulties ,eczema and other skin conditions.

Bamboo duvets are washable too (unlike the silk equivalent which are not) making them an even better solution for those with dust mite related health issues.

Not only has bamboo bedding  great hypoallergenic qualities  – Bamboo has some impressive environmental credentials.

Grown naturally using only natural rainfall, no fertilizers or pesticides.
Bamboo forests are fully sustainable, bamboo is a grass and is cut leaving the roots to grow again , improving soil stability.
Bamboo absorbs more CO2 and releases 35% more oxygen than a similar area of trees.
Bamboo yields 10 times per acre more than cotton.

While the health and environmental benefits are clear it is the sheer luxury and feel of the soft bamboo and the wonderful drape of the fabric that contributes to a wonderful nights sleep.

Satin Pillowcases protect your hair and skin from damage while you sleep

By , January 22, 2014 12:43 pm

Satin Pillow cases are wonderful for the hair and skin. The smooth satin weave allows the hair and skin to glide across, rather than pulling on the fabric as with a cotton pillow case.

By sleeping on soft satin pillow cases helps you wake up with great looking hair and skin….

  • keep wrinkles at bay ….
  • Especially good for “difficult to care for hair” and reduces “bedhead”.
  • Soft satin pillow cases are very much in demand by people who experience “bed head”, or who wake up with creases in their delicate facial skin.
  • The satin will not pull moisture from the skin or hair like cotton will.
  • The smooth satin finish allows your hair and skin to glide across the pillow, no dragging, less knotting and no friction.
  • No friction means a significant reduction in raised cuticle layers which lead to split ends.

Why Silk Bed Linen?

Silk has Unique Qualities

Pure Silk Sheets are excellent for people with sensitive skin and allergy problems. Silk is a natural protein based fibre containing 18 amino acids, the same building blocks of human skin. Many people use Pure Silk Pillow Cases as they are beneficial in preventing the formation of wrinkles and keeps your hairstyle looking its best. Hair and skin slide over silk unlike cotton based fabrics which catch and pull.

Silk’s good absorbency makes it comfortable in warm weather. Its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin during cold weather. Silk’s elegant, soft lustre and beautiful drape makes it perfect for bed linen and soft furnishings. The silk protein fibres are strong and resistant to stretching and they have strong peptide bonds which will not break. Silk fibres have a triangular cross section with rounded corners. This allows light to hit at many different angles, so silk is a bright fibre and has a natural shine. It has a smooth, soft texture that is not slippery, unlike many synthetic fibres.

Finding Bed Sheets to fit your bed. Do your sheets “ping off” during the night

By , January 8, 2014 11:35 am

Do you suffer the frustration of having your fitted sheet “pinging off” during the night. You wake up and find that one or more of the corners of your fitted sheet have come off the mattress during the night. At the best its a regular irritant and at worst you  have to disentangle yourself each morning . The reason that this is such a common problem is that mattresses on beds have got deeper and most companies that make bed linen are still making sheets that are too shallow for the new deeper mattresses. Added to that the vast majority of bed linen is manufactured in the far east and importers have to buy shipments of finished bed sheets by the container full . This means they generally only buy fitted sheets for one depth of mattress and for standard bed sizes only.

This creates a problem for consumers as today’s beds are made with deeper mattresses and toppers. The advent of Ikea throughout the world (they only make beds and mattresses in Swedish sizes) and other international brands mean that the “Double” bed  you buy is not a UK Double but may be an EU Double. They are not the same size! Happily help is at hand. Jane Allen the Bed Linen Expert at Between the Sheets explains.” We make bed sheets to fit any size or shape of Mattress and Bed. Simply let us know the width , length and depth of your Mattress and we guarantee to make bed sheets that will fit your bed. Look at to see how we can help”
