Getting a good night's sleep is essential for overall health and well-being. One way to improve your sleep routine is by investing in high-quality bedding that meets your individual needs. So, it’s crucial to choose accordingly and prioritize comfort.

After a long day (or not, really!), there is no better sensation than feeling the softness of warm bedding on your skin. If you’re wondering what’s the best bed linen for your sleep routine, well, it depends.

On top of quality, consider the climate where you live, as your bed sheets should provide you with pleasant thermal comfort and a night of fresh, dry sleep. Just as importantly, remember to pick linens that fit your mattress just right. Before shopping for your pieces, make sure you check the Bed and Bedding Sizes Chart.

Duvet covers and sheet sets from THON are created from noble fibers, such as Egyptian Cotton™, and TENCEL™ Lyocell, to ensure your needs are met. In the following, we explain a bit about each of them.

1. Egyptian Cotton™

Egyptian Cotton™ Flower.

Cotton is likely the most well-known raw material in the world. Except you’re probably not sure what’s the real difference between organic cotton, Egyptian Cotton™, or even regular cotton. From harvesting to quality properties, these fibers are quite different.

The Egyptian Cotton™ fibers differ from any other by its nobility, durability as a result of the extra-long length of its fibers. The climate in Egypt’s Nile Delta, provides the perfect conditions for its growth. The Egyptian Cotton™ flower is carefully hand-picked, ensuring that its fibers aren’t weakened or broken. This harvest, yields softer and more durable linens.

Still, you should be aware: given its worldwide reputation, there are a bunch of companies producing their own fibers, thus faking the label. More than carrying the name of the place where it’s grown, the Egyptian Cotton™ trademark guarantees that the product is truly superior, certified and crated from 100% pure long fibers. The Cotton Egypt Association is dedicated to protecting this luxury heirloom, the authenticity of Egyptian Cotton™. So, to ensure you are buying the real deal, always search for the Egyptian Cotton™ gold seal license.

The benefits of Egyptian Cotton™ include no pilling, consistent finish, moisture-absorbency, as well as breathability. Its extra-long staples promote outstanding durability and strength. This leads to an extremely soft touch. These sheets are perfect for pleasant and invigorating nights, due to their ability to regulate body temperature.

2. TENCEL™ Lyocell

Alternatively, TENCEL™ Lyocell comes from a circular, innovative process where less energy is required than conventional raw materials. It’s a type of highly resistant cellulose fiber found in eucalyptus wood pulp. If you are craving to significantly improve your sleeping experience, you should try our TENCEL™ bedding.

Made in a closed-loop manufacturing process, TENCEL™ fabric is known for its lightness, softness, breathability, and moisture-wicking properties. These properties make it an excellent choice, as it also helps regulate body temperature and keeps you cool and all comfy throughout the night.

These prestigious textiles are also hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria and mites, making them an excellent choice for people with sensitive skin or allergies. Not only that, their silky texture will even preserve the shine of your hair and prevent the onset of rashes or pimples. Finally, they are easy to care for, as they can be machine washed and dried without losing shape.

3. Sateen

It feels just like sleeping on hotel bedding! Our Sateen bedding is produced from Egyptian Cotton™, which gives it an undeniably buttery feel. Sateen is a weave structure with a lustrous, silky sheen and a smooth, luxurious feel.

Threads on the surface of the fabric are floated over several threads before being interlaced with the threads on the underside of the fabric. Due to the extra-fine texture of Egyptian Cotton™ as the higher the thread counts, the more pleasant sheets are to the touch. Perfect for colder seasons, its natural texture and heat-retaining abilities provide you with cozy warm nights, staying highly breathable at the same time.

On the other hand, our 300 thread count TENCEL™ Lyocell Sateen provides very cozy and cool nights due to the fiber’s features. The silky touch of sateen bedding makes magic to your skin and hair.

Sateen sheets, pillowcases, and duvet covers are known for their softness, sheen, and drape, with a glossy finish. The Sateen fabric is also durable and wrinkle-resistant. The main care instruction is to wash your linens on a delicate cycle, avoiding high temperatures.

4. Percale

White Percale Egyptian Cotton™ flat sheet from THON.

Equally derived from Egyptian Cotton™, Percale is a weave structure made using a one-over, one-under tight, and even weave pattern. Our 200 thread count percale, guarantees one of the most resistant, durable and softest fabrics.

The natural extra-long staple fibers cause our fabrics to be durable and soft, yet lightweight. The length of fibers results in crisp, cool, and extremely breathable sheets. Not only are they ideal for people who tend to sleep hot, but they are also perfect all year round, aiding in body temperature regulation. With a sophisticated look, Percale bedding is great for those who want a deep, cool sleep and an effortless stylish bedroom, because of its matte finish.

Even though it’s easy maintenance, this fabric can easily wrinkle. You may want to iron after washing and drying. With regular use and regular washing, Percale sheets will soften and become more comfortable over time without showing signs of wear.

Choosing the best sustainable bedding sets for your sleep routine makes a significant difference in your routine and boosts healthy sleep habits. Before making your choice, consider aspects like materials, weave, color, design, and maintenance.

Remember to prioritize fabrics with certified qualities, and sustainable processes. Following these tips, you can create a sleep sanctuary that promotes restful, rejuvenating sleep. Let us know which fabric caught your attention!
