Get your beauty sleep with the best cooling sheets for summer

Pick the best sheets to sleep on this summer

We know the importance of a good night’s sleep and how it affects our overall health and wellbeing, but these New Zealand summer nights can make it almost impossible to get a good night’s rest.

There are a few things to consider when it comes to picking your summer time bed sheets, and picking the right ones can make the world of difference to your sleep cycle. When picking sheets, considering the following:

  • Thread count – the lower the thread count the cooler the sheets and the better for summer thanks to increased circulation.

  • Natural fabrics – because you’re going for a lower thread count, make sure your sheet fabric is up to scratch so it is still soft and cosy to sleep on. Natural fabrics like cotton, linen and bamboo are also better for airflow and circulation.

  • Go light – look for lighter colours for your summer time sheets as dark colours absorb heat and especially if your bed is by a window, it will trap this heat, making it particularly warm come bed time.

To help you on your journey to a better night’s sleep we’ve rounded up some of our favourite sheets on offer that are perfect for summer slumbers.

Read on to find our top picks of linen, bamboo and cotton sheets.
