Cool Linen for Hot Summer Nights

Summer will be here before we know it and that means the possibility of some really hot nights. Those sweltering temps and humid airs can often have a dramatic effect on the health of your sleep–if not keep you from getting any at all. And since sleep is so vital to our overall health, both physical and mental, it’s a good idea to be prepared for when those blazing summer nights come our way.

That’s why you might want to consider adding linen bedding. No other fabric keeps you cooler, dryer and more comfortable in summertime, making it the obvious choice for your bed when the season starts bringing the heat. Its positive effects and benefits can be felt immediately. Linen is one of those things I didn’t realize how much I needed until I experienced it for myself. After losing too many nights to sweaty, uncomfortable tossing and turning, I finally decided to give it a try and now I can’t imagine sleeping without it.

Renown for its legendary breathability, linen has definitely earned its reputation as summer’s favorite fabric. As the temperatures start to rise, the weave of linen allows for more airflow so it is constantly being cooled against oncoming heat. And not only does linen have these incredible cooling properties it’s also naturally moisture wicking. Sheets stay crisp and cool on skin so you can finally say bye-bye to sweaty, sleepless nights.

The benefits don’t end there. While linen may be best known for its ability to keep you cool during the hotter seasons, there are so many more reasons to make it part of your summer nights.

Along with being highly breathable, linen bedding is also highly durable. Its fibers are naturally strong and hold up extremely well over time–especially when it is crafted with skill, precision and the finest materials. Experienced brands like Schweitzer Linen know this well. This small family owned company has spent the last five decades crafting some of the finest, most luxurious linens in the world. In all that time, they’ve seen plenty of linen products last long enough to get passed down from one generation to the next.

Because quality linen is an investment—and a good one, not just financially since it will last a very long time, but an investment in your health, your psyche and your future happiness. Science agrees. One study often mentioned comes from the University of Milan. According to the study, after sleeping on linen you fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood. What’s not to like about that? And since it gets softer, smoother and better with age, this is one investment that just keeps giving more and more.

Linen is also able to ward off unwanted bacteria and fungi. If you’ve never considered what could be sleeping with you in your bed, you probably don’t want to know. Summer is full of so many great outdoor activities like beach days and picnics in the park but who knows what you’re bringing back with you. Because of that, you might want linen bedding to keep unwanted bacteria away. Plus, it’s also naturally anti-allergenic so if you are someone with sensitive skin, linen is the perfect choice for you and your family members. Linen also has a soothing, massage-like quality that helps increase circulation and blood flow. This leads to a healthier sleep and deeper relaxation.

Linen is known as a summer fabric but did you know that it’s also a great choice year round? Thanks to its exceptional ability to regulate both high and low temperatures, linen can also be used in colder months. It has the exceptional ability to keep you cool when it’s hot and warm when you are cold. This is why, hands down, it’s really one of the most beneficial fabrics to sleep in.

Beyond the science and its many benefits, perhaps most convincing of all are the countless people who have shared their love affair with this incredible fabric. You’ll find many stories about how good it feels to slip into crisp linen each night and the feelings of peace, relaxation and contentment that come right before falling into a deep, satisfying sleep. Also how good it feels to wake up more energized, more optimistic about the day, and happier overall.

Let’s not forget the design. Science has proven that the colors and art we are surrounded by can affect us emotionally and physically. Most people would argue spiritually as well. Linen doesn’t just come in white anymore. Now you can get your linen bedding in any color, style and design that suits your mood or personal tastes. And if it’s the finest linen paired with exclusive designs you’re looking for, Schweitzer Linen won’t disappoint.
