Finding out which fabric will be the coolest and most comfortable for your   sleeping experience is really difficult, and there are a lot of choices available in the market. In this blog we will explore different fabrics renowned for their ability to keep you cool at night, allowing you to make an informed decision for a blissful night's rest. 

  • Cotton: Throughout the night, it keeps you comfortable and dry by absorbing moisture, which is an additional and amazing property. One of the very popular choices when it comes to bedsheets, cotton offers excellent breathability and moisture-absorbing properties; for those hot summer nights, it is the best choice to keep you cool. From heat being trapped inside the covers, cotton just lets the circulation of air around the body.  Look for bedsheets made from lightweight and breathable cotton, such as percale or Egyptian cotton, for the ultimate cool sleep experience.
  • Linen: If you are looking for any fabric that has amazing breathability and the power to keep your coolant relaxed on those hot summer nights, then Linen is your choice. Linen Bedsheets is made from the fillings taken from flax plants. It offers great breathability and comfort as time passes because it has a soft, and slightly gritty texture that makes it softer as you wash it. The moisture absorbing ability and airflow of heat are promoted by its open weave, keeping it dry and comfortable throughout the night.
  • Bamboo: From keeping you cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather, this fabric has the amazing ability to regulate temperature. For people having skin allergies or sensitive skin, these bedsheets are an excellent choice as they are also hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Bamboo bedsheets have gained popularity in recent years due to their silky-smooth texture and exceptional cooling properties. Made from the pulp of the bamboo plant, the Bamboo fabric is naturally very breathable and moisture absorbing. 
  • Tencel: Made with the closed loop process, it reduces the waste and has a less adverse impact on the environment, making it eco-friendly. Tencel cotton bedsheets are the perfect summer choice as they have a natural cooling effect and are very breathable. Tencel, also known as lyocell, is basically taken from eucalyptus trees, which also makes it a sustainable fabric as it is made with the wood pulp. It is incredibly comfortable to sleep on as it has a very smooth, silky texture with excellent moisture-absorbing properties.
  • Microfiber: While it might not be as breathable as natural fabrics, microfiber bedsheets are yet the perfect choice for keeping you cool on those warm summer nights, especially for the ones looking for something budget-friendly. While not a natural fabric such as cotton or Linen, microfiber bedsheets are worth mentioning for their affordability and moisture-wicking capabilities. It is breathable and incredibly lightweight, as it is basically synthetic fabric made from very finely woven fibres. 

How Details in Fabric Construction Keep You Cool

Weaving details significantly influence the cooling properties of bedsheets. Here's a quick breakdown:

  • Thread Count: Opt for a lower thread count (200-400) for better airflow and breathability.
  • Percale Weave: Features a tight, one-over-one-under pattern, ensuring a crisp, lightweight fabric that facilitates airflow.
  • Sateen Weave: Although luxurious, sateen's three-over-one-under weave can be less breathable than percale. Look for sateen with lower thread counts or breathable fiber blends.
  • Linen Weave: Known for exceptional breathability, Linen's loose and open weave allows maximum airflow and moisture-wicking properties.
  • Ventilated or Open Weave: Specifically designed with more significant gaps between threads for enhanced airflow and cooling comfort.
