How To Choose Winter Bedding
Is your winter bedding ready?
Winter is the season for picnics under the sun and bonfire nights. Some of us prefer to stay in with a glass of Wine or Hot Chocolate and Netflix. After all, who does not like to snuggle and sleep cozy on a cold winter night. And if you’re not a morning person, then snoozing the alarm, and waking up to a warm cuppa in bed is definitely something you wouldn’t skip for the world. But have you got your winter bedding ready to enjoy all this extra time in bed?
Choosing the right winter bedding may not seem crucial, however, the bedsheet fabric quality, its thread count, the Duvet, it all makes a huge difference to how well you sleep at night. So, if you are not sure where to start, then here are some tips on what to keep in mind before choosing your winter bedding.
Choose perfect thickness for the season
Generally, cotton bed sheets work well in all seasons, however, the thread count can drastically improve your sleep quality. During summers you need lighter, more breathable sheets, but in winters a higher thread count works well to retain the warmth a bit better. If you tend to feel hot at night, you may consider our Percale or linen bed sheets. If you tend to feel cold, we do offer cotton bedding in higher thread count with tighter weave. Our 1000 thread count sheets have a tight weave making them thicker and warmer than usual.

It can often be a tedious task to match your blanket with different kinds of bedsheets. Duvet covers are perfect for winters, as you can use them with a blanket, quilt or even a comforter. Depending on the actual temperature, you can simply slip the duvet cover over any of your blankets. You don’t always need to buy a new blanket, but just buy duvet covers that go well with your bed sheet sets. You can slip a blanket, quilt or a comforter into the duvet cover depending on how cozy you want your bed to be.

Can You Use Linen Bed Sheets in Winters?
Linen is typically assumed to be a summer fabric. Well, that's nothing more than a myth! Yes, Linen is breathable and cool when it is warm outside, but its strong flax fibers make it durable in winter too. Linen is temperature regulating, and it can keep you warm during cooler conditions. So you can definitely use Linen bed sheets in winters.
