How to Buy Sheet Sets: A Guide to Getting the Most Out of Your Investment in a Great Night’s Sleep

Written by Family Magazine. Posted in Uncategorized

how to buy sheet setsYou may think you already know how to buy sheet sets that suit your wants and needs, but there’s always more that you can learn. The average person spends about one-third of their life laying in bed, so you should be doing everything in your power to get the best night’s sleep possible.

If you’ve ever wondered how to buy sheet sets that are comfortable and built to last, there’s just two words you need to remember: organic linen. Pure linen sheets provide the best night’s sleep of any material, bar none. The benefits they offer are truly infinite, and you’ll quickly wonder how you ever slept on anything but linen.

A common issue for most people is staying warm or cool when the temperature gets to be extreme. Whether it’s the middle of summer or the dead of winter, it’s never easy to stay comfortable through the entire night if you don’t have the right sheets. Organic sheet sets eliminate this issue, regardless of the season.

In fact, studies have found that a person wearing or sleeping on linen perspires 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes. Additionally, they perspire half as much as people dressed viscose clothes. At the same time, linen is an ideal way to stay warm in cold temperatures.

If “How to Buy Sheet Sets: 101″ was a college course, perhaps the first lesson would be on finding sheets that don’t accumulate static electricity. As you may have already guessed, organic linen is the only material that can prevent you from random shocks in the morning. Linen cloth does not accumulate static electricity, and even a small, 10% addition of flax fibers a cloth is enough to eliminate the static electricity effect.

Last but not least, you want to get the best bargain possible. When you opt for organic linen sheets, you’re making more of an investment than a purchase. Flax fabrics actually increase about 20% in strength after wetting, which means linen becomes stronger when being washed. This helps linen sheets last longer than other textiles, becoming softer and improving in comfort over time.

If you’ve been wondering how to buy sheet sets that are built to last, look no further than organic linen.
