5 Steps to Staying Cool this Summer

Posted by Casey Dubyk on 2020 Jun 16th

Summer is in full swing and that means it’s officially time to put away those heavy duvets and find ways to keep cool through the night!

1. Lighten Up!
Change to a summer weight duvet

Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night flinging your duvet off yourself? The answer to over-heating is here!

Switching to a natural, lightweight and breathable duvet like our  Chinook Down Duvet or our Pearl Mulberry Silk Duvet will ensure maximum comfort all through the night.

Our lightweight down duvets are specially constructed to allow for air flow and breathability, while maintaining that lofty soft signature feel we all love. The Chinook duvet, in particular, consists of small down clusters, trapping less heat, which leaves you sleeping cool and comfortably.

Silk filled duvets are also a great option for staying cool this summer. Silk fibres are naturally temperature regulating, moisture wicking and hypoallergenic! (I know, it impresses us too) That’s not all, a silk filled duvet can also accommodate more than one sleep temperature, leaving everyone sleeping soundly.

2. Wrap Yourself in Cool Luxury
Bamboo Cotton & BeechBliss Sheet Sets

The right sleep starts with the right sheets. With so many options where do you start? Don’t worry, that’s what we are here for!

Let’s start with Bamboo Cotton. This luxurious fabric is velvety soft and breathable. A sustainably grown natural resource, bamboo has very good temperature regulating properties. Blended with cotton to add strength and durability, our bamboo cotton sheets have a nice weight and wash really well over time.

Next in line for finding your perfect sheeting is our luxurious  BeechBliss TENCEL™ Modal sheet set. Like our Bamboo Cotton sheets, BeechBliss TENCEL™ Modal sheet are woven from sustainably grown and harvested from European beech wood trees. Cool to the touch with effective wicking abilities, these sheet sets help keep you at the perfect temperature all night long. Comparable to natural silk, these sheets are perfect for people with very sensitive skin.

3. And Even More Coolness!
New Bamboo Duvet Covers

If you fell in love with the gentle caressing feeling of our Bamboo Cotton sheets, then you better prepare yourself! Our temperature regulating Bamboo Cotton fabric is also available in duvet covers!

Maintain an ideal sleeping temperature all night long through every layer in your bedding. Pairing your sheet set with a Bamboo Cotton duvet cover like our Faraday Collection, is the ultimate way to beat the heat while sleeping! Fabric made with Bamboo resists clinging during hot weather.

4. Turn off the Air Conditioning
MLILY® 2” Gel Memory Foam Topper

Mattress toppers are a brilliant way to transform a mattress, giving it new life with minimal cost. The warmer weather months are here, transform your sleep with a  MLILY® 2” Gel Memory foam topper.

This mattress topper is made with Gel AirCell™ technology memory foam and ventilation for breathability, which allows air to pass through, leaving you cool throughout the night. The topper features an outer cover using Ice Fiber technology. Feel the cooling immediately!

5. Keep a cool Head
MLILY® Cool Blue Memory Foam Pillow

Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night, only to flip your pillow to get to the “cool side”? Well no more! Keep a cool head during summer with the  MLILY ® Cool Blue Memory Foam Pillow. Cool to the touch, the top layer of the pillow features their Gel Phase Change material, which absorbs body heat to regulate temperatures all night long.
