The Ultimate Hibernation Products for Autumn / Winter

Animals are renowned for it, but science has proven that hibernation in humans is brilliant for health and wellbeing. It can help to overcome a number of ailments – including stress and the common winter cold – as it gives the body and mind time to heal.

Officially, hibernation is a state of inactivity and metabolic depression in endotherms. Hibernation refers to a season of heterothermy that is characterised by low body temperature, slow breathing and heart rate, and low metabolic rate.

So while humans with busy lifestyles can’t spend weeks on end under the covers, having a few hours of hibernation each month could make a huge difference to our state of mind and health.

How to hibernate

Hibernation is about curling up, getting warm, battening down the hatches and just letting ourselves do what animals do in winter. Think of a small mouse. The mouse finds a cosy place, builds a nest, finds some leaves and then curls up and goes into a deep, long sleep.

Products for Human Hibernation

 

  1. Duvets are the ultimate products for heavenly hibernation

Duvets are a means to cocoon the body in the warmest, comfiest natural materials on the planet. Whether it’s snuggling under goose and duck feather and down or enjoying the superior drape around the body of synthetic duvets that contain silk fibres these are the products for the ultimate experience of feeling encased in luxury.

Our white Duck Down Duvet collection is beautifully lofty with a high down fill. 80% duck down clusters are combined with feathers and encased in naturally breathable soft pure cotton cover.   Constructed in a square cassettes layout to ensure an even distribution of fillings throughout the duvet, this product drapes beautifully and naturally around the body – leaving no draughts for cold air to encroach on that perfect night’s sleep.

Silk is the secret ingredient for a light yet cosy duvet which drapes beautifully around the contours of the body. The Fine Cotton Company’s Double Silk Duvet has a natural silk floss filling that continually adjusts to the individual’s body and the ambient temperature of the room.

Similar poncho wraps, modelled by the likes of Kate Moss and Rhianna at international music festivals, have become a staple item in the festival goer’s wardrobe, probably because they’re so versatile and easy to throw on over any outfit; adding an instant extra layer if the weather takes a turn.  And it’s not just music fans who will benefit, with lots of outdoor events lined up in the summer calendar for music and sports lovers alike, they’re fast becoming a best-seller.

“The unpredictable British weather means it can often get a bit chilly at outdoor events.  These ponchos are perfect for festivals but they’re also great for sporting meets like Royal Ascot or even outdoor theatres or operas, which are becoming more and more popular.” Jane Robson, Founder, The Fine Cotton Company.

Poncho leather straps

The gorgeous soft poncho throws from The Fine Cotton Company come with leather carry straps so they’re easy to roll up and transport and are ideal for camping / sitting outside in the summer evenings.

Made from 100% Merino Lambswool they double as a blanket so there’s no need to take both. Plus they can be personalised with initials or name in a choice of fonts and letters.

They’re also a wise choice for holidays and especially flying (rather than scratchy airline blankets), as well as summer picnics and relaxing or dining in the garden during the summer months.
