As the weather starts getting colder, you might find yourself cranking up the thermostat to stay warm at night. A better alternative to stay comfortable at night is to invest in winter bedding. This will save you money on your heating bill and look nicer than just piling blankets on your bed. Winter bedding is designed to trap heat and keep you warm, whereas summer bedding is designed to be more breathable and allow trapped body heat to escape. Another solution for sleeping comfortably through a cold winter night is heated bedding, and we have a selection of high-quality heated blankets that are attractive, comfortable, and safe.

What Is a Bath Sheet?

 

Everyone knows what a bath towel is, but you may be unfamiliar with the term “bath sheet.” A bath sheet, also known as a body sheet, is essentially a larger version of your standard bath towel. The standard size for a bath towel is about 27 by 52 inches; a bath sheet is typically about 35 by 60 inches. Bath sheets make it easier to wrap your entire body than a bath towel.

The Home Source Body Sheets are comfortable, well-sized options if you’re in the market for a bath sheet. They have an extremely high fiber count, meaning better absorbency to dry you off faster. These body sheets are woven from a 600 GSM, 100% long-staple cotton, which makes them very soft, plush, and durable. This kind of dense weave is great because it provides a luxurious feel without a super high price.

Like bath towels, bath sheets come in a variety of colors and styles to match your bathroom. If you are looking for new towels in your bathroom, and never knew about bath sheets, they are definitely worth checking out. Most bath towels are a hassle to wrap around an adult body after getting out of the shower. Bath sheets are the perfect solution! Shop at LinensForLiving.com for all of your linens needs from the bedroom to the bathroom to the dining room.

Winter Comforter

Downright Himalaya Siberian Winter ComforterThis has been a chaotic Winter! We can’t really complain about the mild November and most of December, but January and February have had my thermometer dancing. Every time I think Spring has finally broken, the temperature plummets for a few days leaving me unexpectedly cold when I walk outside.

I’ve been spending most of my time indoors, longing for some green grass and sunshine. One of the best ways to bundle up is with a winter-weight comforter. These comforters are noticeably heavy, usually with a high fill power, allowing it to better trap heat and insulate you from the cold. There are a couple of factors to keep in mind when you are looking for a new comforter:

If you are a hot or sweaty sleeper, even in the winter, winter-weight comforters may not breathe as well as you’d like. Being sweaty is counter-intuitive to keeping warm, so you want to make sure you aren’t working backwards.

If you’re more often cold at night, a winter-weight comforter should help significantly. Once you’ve decided what kind of weight you want your comforter to have, you can move on to choosing the size and color. So until we are sure that Spring has finally broken, get yourself a winter-weight comforter and save yourself from waking up shivering and tired.

What Is Sateen?

Peacock Alley Soprano Cuff Pillowcase PairSateen is one of the most popular types of textile weave. Like percale, it is commonly used in bedding — but it has a different weight, feel, and sheen. Ultimately, choosing sateen sheets is a personal choice based on what you find comfortable.

Sateen fabrics are not a plain weave, which is where each weft (widthwise) and warp (lengthwise) crisscrosses in an even pattern — one over, one under, and so on.

SFERRA Parro King QuiltInstead, the sateen weave is characterized by the way that the warp yarn “floats” over several weft yarns. Rather than going over one weft thread and under the next, the warp goes over three or four weft threads. This is how sateen gets its trademark gloss and smoothness.

Because this weave has so many floating threads, it is woven very tightly in order to minimize wear. Sateen is also a little thicker than percale, which means it is heavier. Bedding with a sateen weave is extra comfortable in winter because it will keep you warmer.

But again, ultimately, choosing sateen bedding is entirely a matter of personal comfort. Regardless of whether or not you think sateen is a good fit for you, LinensforLiving has a huge selection of bedding in sateen, percale, and jacquard weaves so that you can find the perfect bedding for you.

Lay Me Down in Sheets of Linen: The Benefits of Linen

sferra-classico-flat-sheetEven though the term “linens” is often used generically to describe any kind of household textile, it has a second meaning in regards to actual linen fabric, which is made from the flax plant.

Linen is one of the oldest known fabrics made by humans — going all the way back to Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt — so it has a long history to support its use today. Here are 5 reasons that you should consider investing in linen bedding.

1. Linen is a naturally breathable fabric. This means that it will conduct heat away from your body very well, which is important if you live in a hot climate or are a hot sleeper.

2. It is also very lightweight, which, again, is great for heat. If you have linen bedding, you won’t feel suffocated during summer nights from a heavy sheet or duvet.

3. Linen is very absorbent, and when it is damp, it doesn’t weight heavily on the body. It also dries fairly quickly, so if you sweat a lot in your sleep, you won’t wake up with soaked sheets. In fact, linen fibers are actually stronger wet than dry.

4. Durability is one of linen’s most important characteristics. Archaeologists have discovered 3000-year-old linen wrappings in Egyptian tombs that are in perfect condition, without any maintenance. In general, linen fibers are very strong — 2 to 3 times stronger than cotton threads. If you invest in linen bedding, not only will it last longer, but it will also remain in excellent condition longer than anything made from cotton.

5. In addition, linen naturally resists stains, dirt, and insects. It will still need to be regularly cleaned and cared for, but it will retain its quality for a long time.

If you like the idea of using linen textiles in your home, here are a few pointers to keep in mind as you shop:

  • Linen tends to wrinkle easily, but since the fabric is so well established in the textile industry, this feature is often considered part of its natural charm.
  • Linen lasts longer if it is not tumble-dried in a traditional dryer. Allowing it to air-dry will ensure a longer lifespan for linen fabric.
  • Even though linen fibers are very strong, they are not very flexible. This explains why they wrinkle, and also why continued creasing in the same spots will cause the fibers to break. If you have linen textiles in storage, take them out every few months and shake out the wrinkles to prevent any breakage.
  • Linen bedding isn’t cheap. However, the nature of the fabric means that it will last much longer than any cotton or polyester sheets that you buy — so by investing now, you will save money in the long run.
