Five Reasons To Choose Cotton Bed Linen

In order to get the recommended amount of sleep each night (8 hours, if you haven’t heard!), you must spend more than 200 hours per month in bed. With this in mind, it’s likely that you spend more time wrapped up in your bed linen than in any other part of your house, so it’s a good idea to take a bit of time over choosing your sheets and duvet covers. Cotton bedding has been a popular choice for many years, and it’s not hard to see why. Here are five good reasons reasons:

  1.  Cotton Bed Linen is readily available.

As any of our regular customers will testify, The Linen Cupboard stocks cotton bed linen in all shapes and sizes, from 4ft fitted sheets to king size duvet covers, and from single bed sheets, to pillowcases. In fact, we hold more unusual and odd size linen that anyone else – extra deep fitted sheets, anyone?

  1.  Cotton Bed Linen is durable.

Unlike some of the alternative materials, cotton bed linen is durable and easy to care for. The fabric can be laundered at home on a normal wash cycle and is usually resistant to high temperatures. It can also be ironed to give a crisp, clean appearance. Cotton bedding does not need to be dry-cleaned, and can last for a number of years if the proper care instructions are adhered to.

  1.  Cotton Bedding is affordable.

Regardless of your budget, you will always find good quality cotton bed linen at The Linen Cupboard. Price depends upon a variety of factors, such as the thread count (the number of threads per square inch of material). As a general rule, more expensive bed linen will have a higher thread count. The price will also be affected by the type of cotton used and the weave, so consider each of these when looking for bedding to suit your budget.

  1.  Cotton Sheets are comfortable.

Being uncomfortable, (too warm or too cold) will affect the quality of your sleep. For this reason, comfort is often the number one priority when selecting bed linen. Cotton bedding is comfortable all year round, suitable for both summer and winter use. It’s breathable, which keeps your body cool and dry in the summer months, traps heat in the winter months, and feels soft against your skin. It is also hypoallergenic, making it a fantastic choice if you have allergies or sensitive skin.

  1.  Cotton Bed Linen environmentally friendly.

Nowadays, it’s important to consider the environmental impact of our choices. Cotton bed linen is natural, renewable and biodegradable. This means that it will naturally break down over time, reducing the need for landfill sites.
