As the scorching days of summer roll in, there's nothing more inviting than slipping into sheets that promise a cool and refreshing night sleep.  Finding the perfect sheets to keep you comfortable throughout the night is a top priority for summer.  Among the myriad of options available, natural fibre sheets (the only sheets we make) stand out as the champions of summer slumber.

In this guide, we'll explore the world of eco cotton, organic cotton, linen, and hemp sheets—natural fibres that offer unmatched breathability, softness, and sustainability for the most serene and rejuvenating summer sleep in the months ahead.

Eco Cotton Sheets

We’re often asked why our eco cotton sheets are so comfortable to sleep in.

One of the standout features of eco cotton is its ability to promote air flow and wick away moisture, helping you stay dry and comfortable even in the midst of a heatwave. This is thanks to the things we eliminated - the synthetics and harsh chemicals, that make them feel so luxurious to sleep in.  Combine this with our signature weave which gives the sheets a soft smooth finish and you have a cooler more comfortable sleep experience.

Developed 25 years ago, these sheets continue to be our best sellers!

Organic Cotton Sheets

Grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, organic cotton is good for you, the people who grow the cotton and good for the planet too. 

Also known for its breathability, it allows the heat to escape, moisture to be wicked away and air to circulate. For those with sensitive skin and prone to allergies,   organic cotton helps to ensure you avoid all known chemical irritants.  

Linen Sheets

Linen has been a summer staple for centuries, celebrated for its timeless elegance and exceptional breathability. Linen sheets boast a distinct texture that not only adds visual appeal to your bed but also ensures a comfortable sleep experience. The secret behind their cooling properties lies in the natural fibres that make up linen, which are inherently moisture-wicking and quick-drying.

Linen’s natural ability to regulate temperature makes these sheets cool in summer and also perfect during the colder winter months.

Hemp Sheets

The new kid on the block in eco textiles, hemp has gained popularity thanks to its natural qualities of breathability, durability, drapability and eco credentials at all stages during its life cycle.  The cultivation of hemp requires significantly less water compared to other crops, making it a water-wise choice for eco-conscious consumers.  All parts of the plant can be used and at the end of life, hemp sheets are 100% compostable and biodegradable.

Hemp sheets have a distinct texture that becomes softer with each wash, enveloping you in comfort as you unwind after a long day. The moisture-wicking properties of hemp ensure that sweat is pulled away from your body, leaving you cool and dry throughout the night. Additionally, hemp's natural resistance to bacteria and allergens makes it an excellent option for those with sensitivities. 

The natural characteristics of plant-based fabrics, their ability to absorb and wick away moisture, their breathability and durability, are what makes them so comfortable to sleep in. Whether you choose cotton, linen or hemp depends on the finish and feel you prefer and the aesthetic you’re creating.

By choosing natural fibres, you can transform your summer sleep into a peaceful and rejuvenating experience that leaves you refreshed and ready to take on the day.
