2021 Good Housekeeping Bedding Award Winner

The coming of the cold weather months has many of us thinking it’s time for warm, wooly fabrics and lots of heat. Why endure icy ears and toes when trying to sleep? Why not sleep under layers of thick bedding made of fleece or cotton or some other wooly winter fabric?

Sure, you might feel warm from all that weight, but sleeping in an overly warm environment will cause your body temperature to rise, increasing the likelihood of lying in a puddle of sweat. Have you ever woken up with a wet head? Not a good bedtime look.

The belief that winter calls for “winter” fabrics is not only inaccurate, it’s actually the worst thing you can do for your sleep and your skin. Spend the night in an overly heated environment and you’ll notice how dry and cracked your skin becomes. So why sleep against fabrics that will only increase your body temperature and suck out all the moisture from your skin? Silk will keep your skin cool and hydrated so you can look your winter best.

Silk Is an All-Weather Fabric

Silk is known for being smooth and cool to the touch—it’s one of the most luxurious fabrics against your skin. But just because silk feels cool doesn’t mean it’s only fit for cooling you off. Did you know this fabric has natural temperature regulating qualities that work year-round?

Silk provides an insulating layer of warm air against your skin to keep you cozy even while the outside temperatures start to drop. In addition, silk has amazing moisture wicking properties—able to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water and then wick away the rest. This means you won’t have to worry about your silk pillowcase getting wet or sticky, ever.

Now thicker fabrics like fleece can also insulate you with warmth, but because they are medium weight, or heavier, warm air is trapped against your skin with no escape valve. When that air gets too warm, your body temp rises and the sweating begins.

Silk, on the other hand, is a natural fiber that is extremely breathable, meaning air can escape when you get too hot. This natural temperature regulating quality is what makes silk the perfect choice for staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And when you sleep sweat free, your skin looks refreshed and ready for your day.

@Melonie Hi! We’re excited for you too! That is an awesome recommendation and we’ll definitely look at adding head scarves to our lineup. We agree that hair breakage is big no-no. And yes, your Blissy pillowcases will help protect your hair too. We also have a ton of product launches in the near future that we think you will love, so watch out for those as well ;)

Hi I’m so excited about my order I ordered 1 king 1 queen pillow case. haven’t received it yet but I’m excited. Have you thought about head scarves for sleep? That would go great in the collection. Hair breakage is awful especially with the wrong sleep scarve! I have a hard press wrap with color I definitely need the extra protection at bedtime along with the pillow case. Please consider😊
