Did you know that the fabrics your bedding is made from can affect your sleep? Each type of fabric boasts various features that can contribute to a night of comfort and can help maintain the perfect sleeping temperature. While there are many fabrics to choose from, some natural fabrics like bamboo and eucalyptus offer more benefits than others. But, how do you choose between these two fabrics? Is one better than another?
Here is a closer look at each of the benefits these fabrics boast and some of the ways they can improve your quality of sleep each night.
Bamboo is a natural, sustainable fabric with several incredible benefits. For example, if you have a true, natural bamboo product, your fabric is hypoallergenic. You will not have to worry about allergic reactions and waking up with irritated skin. Bamboo is also antibacterial, which helps to keep poor odors away. While you still must wash your bedding often, your room is more likely to smell fresh even a few days after your most recent wash.
If you sleep hot or frequently experience night sweats, bamboo bedding should be at the top of your list. Bamboo has natural moisture-wicking properties. This material dissipates heat from the body to keep you cool all night long. This will help you to stay cool in the summer yet more warm in the cold, winter months.
Cool-Jams offers a selection of bamboo bedding that is designed to help you sleep better. Our Cool-Jams Cooling Sheet Set, for example, features a bamboo and cotton blend that gives you the benefits of both bamboo and cotton sheets. You not only receive an extremely soft fabric, but you will stay dry, comfortable, and cool all night long.
Eucalyptus bedding is becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. Eucalyptus sheets have a soft and silk-like feel. If you have sensitive skin or certain fabrics cause excessive skin irritation, this fabric should be at the top of your list.
Eucalyptus fabrics are extremely breathable, which is a must-have feature in bedding. This will help you to stay cool as you sleep and reduces night sweats throughout the night. If you tend to sleep sweaty and wake up in damp bedding, eucalyptus bedding, similar to bamboo bedding, is ideal as it features moisture-wicking properties to keep you dry.
Our Cool-Jams Tencel sheets and pillowcases are made from raw Eucalyptus fibers and offer all of the above benefits. These sheets and pillowcases feature soft, silky fibers and are smoother and softer than cotton, wool, or linen bedding. Plus, these products boast a small eco-friendly footprint as the production of the bedding consumes 10 to 20 times less water than cotton products.
While watching what you eat and participating in relaxation exercises before bed can all contribute to a good night’s sleep, your bedding should never be overlooked. Eucalyptus and bamboo are two exceptional fabrics that will help you get the shut-eye you need in a comfortable, cool, and soft environment.
