The Importance of Investing in High-Quality Bedding Products

The quality of your sleep has the ability to affect all different aspects of your life, and to get it right, you need to start with investing in high-quality bedding. Here’s what you should know about high-quality natural bedding, including what sets it apart and how to choose the right products for your home and your family.

Why It’s Worth Investing in the Best Luxury Bedding

What do you look for when you buy high-quality bedding?

Whether you’re on the hunt for the most comfortable comforter or the best cooling pillow case, the quality of the product should always be at the very top of your list.

Consider your bedding as an investment, instead of just another household cost. The items you choose have the power to impact not just how you sleep but your mood, health, and energy levels throughout the day. And if you have allergies, your bedding could also make all of the difference in your ability to breathe efficiently and limit your exposure to harmful allergens.

As for what makes luxury bedding so luxurious, it comes down to a few simple features: material, breathability, and cleanliness. If your current bedding doesn’t meet these marks, that’s a sign that it’s time to do your research and invest in the sort of bedding that’s worth dreaming about every night.

How Does Silk Better Your Health? 

The first important feature of high-quality bedding: material.

We believe that silk is the best material for bed sheets, and for good reason. Silk has been used for thousands of years, since—as the legend goes—Lady Hsi-Ling-Shih, the Goddess of Silk and wife of the mythological Yellow Emperor, Huangdi, unraveled a silkworm cocoon that fell into her tea cup.

From the outset, silk bedding and robes were considered the ultimate luxury, and this idea eventually spilled into many other areas of the world, spreading outside of China and into parts of Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

Today, silk is still lauded for its comfort and luxurious qualities, but those aren’t the only benefits that it offers. From silk sheets to the best silk pillowcase, this bedding material offers a number of impressive benefits for sleepers, including:

  • Natural cooling properties and relief from night sweats
  • Hypoallergenic properties that protect against allergens and soothe sensitive skin
  • Skin and hair moisturizing qualities for a well-rested morning glow

Our silk bedding is harvested using a safe and no-kill extraction process and is Certified Asthma & Allergy Friendly™ by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and The Asthma Society of Canada.

How Can Sleeping at an Ideal Temperature Improve Sleep?  

Another important aspect that all of the most comfortable bedding sets have in common is that they help you naturally regulate your temperature to keep you cooler and more comfortable throughout the night.

Temperature is one of the leading causes of poor sleep quality and various sleep disorders. And according to studies, if you want to get your best sleep then your sleep environment should stay right around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. That can be difficult to achieve though, especially if your bedding is keeping you too cold or causing you to overheat.

Bedding is one of the key factors in helping you achieve your ideal sleep temperature, ensuring you’re neither too hot nor too cold so that you don’t suffer from sleep deprivation and the physical, mental, and emotional consequences that come along with it. Other tips for achieving the perfect sleep include:

  • Keeping your bedroom dark
  • Getting plenty of exposure to sunlight during the day
  • Maintaining a relaxing sleep routine

These things, combined with temperature regulation, are tantamount to a successful night’s sleep—as well as better days. So, before you start adjusting your thermostat, consider whether it might be your bedding that’s standing in the way of meeting the right temperature at night, and if so, what you could gain from making an upgrade to your sleep environment.
