You spend about one-third of your life in bed. Most of that time you are asleep. But it is also very possible that you spend a decent portion of that time trying to get to sleep. You toss and turn and try to get comfortable, but you just can’t find that sweet spot. That beautiful moment when you feel so comfortable you head off to meet the Sandman before you know it.
Remember how much your grandmother’s bed felt like Heaven when you were growing up? For some reason, everything just felt comfortable to you. Maybe you’ve given up on your bed feeling the same way, but you don’t have to. The trick is in choosing new sheets, and since you are trying new sheets, you might as well try linen. Here are three reasons why you should.
1. Static electricity does not accumulate in linen cloth.
When you think about one of the most annoying things about regular sheets, it’s got to be the electric shocks you receive whenever you pull your bed sheets out of the dryer. Even with a dryer sheet, you still feel the shocks. Linen doesn’t accumulate static electricity, so there is no worry about unwanted volts while you’re setting the bed.
2. Linen absorbs moisture but still feels dry to the touch.
We all sweat in our sleep. That’s just how it is. But we don’t have to wake up feeling sticky and wet. A linen sheet set will soak up the moisture and leave you feeling dry in the morning. Linen cloth will soak up to about 20% of its own weight in moisture. Even after it does this, it still feels dry when you touch it. A perfect solution to those warm summer nights.
3.) Linen is extremely durable.
When you compare linen to cotton or wool, linen comes out as the Superman of fabrics. It has a tensile strength that is twice as high as both cotton and wool, making it the perfect pick for you if you are choosing new sheets for your bedroom or any bedroom in the house. Take a look at the cotton sheets that you have now or remember the last time you had to choose new sheets because the old ones had worn out so quickly.
We all move around while we sleep. The friction of our bodies against the sheets wears them out over time. Choosing new sheets like a set of pure linen sheets automatically extends the life of your sheets.
Since we spend so much of our life in bed, doesn’t it make sense to get yourself the sheets that will help make the most of your recuperation time? There are many different types of sheets to pick from, but the next time you are choosing new sheets, why not grab the ones that will keep the static away, absorb the most moisture, and last for a good, long time?
