Have You Ever Slept in Fine Linen Sheets?

Paris is a beautiful and intriguing city, and having the opportunity to travel there is a wonderful thing. After a day walking the streets, riding the metro, and getting to see landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel tower, and the Bastille, all you want is to go back to your hotel take a quick nap before venturing to Saint-Michel for dinner out on the town.
When you return to your lavishly decorated hotel, however, you remember the one thing the city does not offer in abundance: air conditioning. But a lack of air-conditioning is a small price to pay for a vacation to the City of Light. You open a window, throw the comforter off the bed and crawl in-between the sheets. Soon, unfortunately, the cool sheets you were expecting become hot, itchy, and oppressive in the Parisian afternoon heat. As you are trapped in the oppressive warmth created by these low-quality cotton sheets, you long for the Belgian eco linen sheets gracing your bed at home. You attempt to rest despite the heat, but to no avail.
Although you are in Paris on a dream trip, in your mind you begin to think of all of the benefits of those linen sheets on your bed at home, namely their breezy, cooling nature. You make a mental note to remember this the next time you are choosing new sheets. Now that you have seen the impact of low-quality sheets, you will never again question the price difference between an average cotton sheet set and pure linen sheets. As you head to dinner still exhausted, you realize that even the City of Light can seem a little dim when you are not getting the rest you need.
Quality sheets are a luxury that you really do not notice until you no longer have them. Let’s say, for example, that you are away from home staying with a friend for a week. You have had a great time at the pool, out shopping, and up late visiting. As soon as you climb in to bed in the guest room, however, you notice something is not quite right. The minute you slide your body between the sheets you realize that you miss your organic linen sheets back home.
Pure Linen Sheets Help You Stay Cool in the Summer, Warm in the Winter
Turns out sheets are something that once you realize what you like, you can hardly do without them. While the crisp white lightly starched and ironed sheets of a hotel room might work for a night or two, it is difficult to replace the distinct feeling of linen sheets that keep you from perspiring at night. In fact, according to some studies, a person wearing linen clothes perspires nearly 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes and twice less than when dressed in viscose clothes. And while linen can keep you cool in the summer, in cold weather linen is an ideal warmth-keeper. It just makes sense then that sleeping in fine linen sheets will help control temperatures as well.
Making the decision to invest in a great pair of sheets is the first step toward getting the rest that you need to tackle the day you have in front of you. While you may not be able to control the bedding you get when you visit Paris or your best friend’s home, you definitely can control the sheets you use when you are at home.
