Natural Bed Linens Are a Great Investment
When looking for a must-have bedding collection for your home, you should definitely be
looking through the various natural fiber bed linens on the market. They are beneficial to
your sleep, and more durable than standard bed linens.
Natural bed linens are a great investment on many different levels. They are durable, soft,
help you sleep more soundly, and end up costing less long-term than buying two or more
sets of the less-expensive bed linens on the market. Plus, using natural fibers allows you to
make environmentally-friendly choices as a consumer on top of the other benefits you are
already going to experience simply by using this type of bed linen. You may spend a few
more dollars up front, but the longevity of your bedding more than makes up for the price
during the life of the bed linens you purchase. When trying to determine which linens you
should choose for your bed, your best bet is going with one the natural types of linens on
Types of Natural Fibers
There are numerous varieties of natural fibers on the market. You can find natural products
made by animals, or you can go with plant products for your fabric. Both options have
perks, and are more dependent on your personal preference than anything else. They all
offer luxury, softness, and durability that rivals even the best man-made products on the
bedding market. Here are a few examples of natural fibers you will likely encounter, and
each fiber's source.
Linen from the Flax plant
Silk from silkworms
Cotton from the Cotton plant
Wool from a few different animals
Ramie from a Nettle-style plant
Bamboo from the Bamboo plant
Some of these fibers do not sound as though they can be used for your bed linens, but they
are all able to be used as comfortable fabrics all around your home. In fact, some of these
fibers are even more durable and long lasting than their man-made counterparts. Each of
these fibers is able to be harvested from natural sources, making them renewable products.
Instead of using up materials, you now have the environmentally-friendly option of being
able to use these resources. This allows you to feel good about the choices you are making
to help the environment on top of feeling comfortable in your new bed linens.
The Benefits of Natural Fibers
The durability of natural fibers is incredible, and they remain strong even after long-term
use. You can easily wash these fabrics and remove stains and return them to their original
luster. Natural fibers breathe better when against your skin over their man-made
counterparts, as well. This means that during the hot summer months, you will be able to
sleep comfortably, even if you are one of the people who prefers sleeping under a layer or
two of blankets when sleeping.
This also means you will not overheat during the winter months should you have any extra
blankets on during the night. These fibers will always look fresh and crisp, and will be easy
to wash, dry, and put right back on the bed. Some of the natural fibers you can use also
have hypoallergenic properties, making them more versatile in homes with people who
often suffer from allergies or asthma.
Where Natural Fibers Will Benefit You The Most
The best place to use natural fiber linens is on the sheets and pillow cases. While having
these fabrics for the comforter, bed skirt, shams, or drapery surrounding the bed can look
and feel luxurious, your body will get the most benefit from you having these fibers directly
against your skin. The more comfortable your body is while you sleep, the better sleep you
will get. This means you will sleep more soundly, wake up feeling more rested, and gain
more healing and repairing properties throughout your body while you sleep. You can add to
the natural benefit you give your bedroom by the inclusion of natural fiber flooring, pillows,
throws, and upholstery on any other furniture you have in your room.
When you are going through and picking out your must-have bedding collection for your
home, you need to strongly consider the benefits of buying an all-natural fiber bed set. Not
only will it look amazing, but the material will feel exquisite, allow you to sleep better than
you have in a long time, and the set will last a lot longer than standard sheets under the
same duration and type of use. Your home will look and feel more upscale from the
inclusion of these textiles, and you will once again be able to enjoy your bedroom as the
sanctuary it was meant to be. Don't let a slightly higher price tag deter you from the fabrics
that can make you sleep and feel better any time you are spending time in your room.
