A Guide to Making Your Bedroom a Cosy Sanctuary for the Winter

With winter fast approaching, how do you create a cosy sanctuary in your bedroom?

If you want to get the optimum night’s sleep from sleeping in a slightly cooler room, you will need to work just that bit harder to keep yor body at the optimum temperature in bed during those cold winter’s nights.   This is where The Fine Cotton Company’s superb range of luxury, organic and natural bedding and bed linen can really help you.

It’s all about layering – start from the bottom with your bed and layer it up for your optimum luxury, organic sleeping experience.

Start with a really good mattress enhancer.   A good mattress enhancer will give you many benefits, such as added support, greater comfort as you sleep, and will help to keep you cosy and warm.   It will also help to protect your mattress, thus lengthening its life significantly. The Fine Cotton Company has an excellent range of mattress enhancers or toppers – revel in the opulence of a Silk Filled Mattress Topper .   Silk keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer and these amazing silk mattress enhancers will give a soft, luxurious feel to your mattress.   They also create a healthier sleeping experience for you as they are naturally hypoallergenic, making them ideal for allergy sufferers, and also help to regulate your body temperature.   Or you could opt for the simplicity of the ‘Luxury Cotton Mattress Protector’ and sink into the soft comfort of its 100% natural cotton warmth.

The next layer that you need to look at is the sheet that goes over the mattress enhancer.   The best sheet to get is deep fitted sheet in the correct size for your bed.   This ensures that the sheet won’t ping off during the night, interrupting your precious sleep.   To enhance your warmth and cosiness, choose flannelette as the material for your fitted sheet.   The Fine Cotton Company’s ‘Stowe’ range offers fitted sheets in soft 100% organic cotton that has been lightly brushed to give a very warm and comfortable finish.   Guaranteed to keep you toasty on a cold winter’s night!

Maybe the most important layer is the next one, which is the duvet.   Choosing the correct duvet is all important when it comes to keeping you warm during the colder months. The weight, softness and warmth of a duvet will depend on its tog rating and filling, and the higher your tog rating the warmer you will be! The Fine Cotton Company only stocks natural duvets as they are very durable and naturally breathable, and natural filled duvets also have very efficient thermal properties.   In the winter, depending on how warm your home is,  you will probably need to have a duvet that is between 12.0 – 13.5 tog to keep you snug. Choose a Pure Silk Duvet from The Fine Cotton Company for light and luxurious snuggling throughout the winter months, or invest in the ultimate luxury of a Snowgoose Down Duvet , where you can luxuriate in the softest 100% Snowgoose down originating from the Northern Territories of Canada.   They are exceptionally light and super warm, and have a lavish 50% silk and 50% cotton 440 threadcount cover. All the duvets in the Fine Cotton Company’s range have matching pillows , so snuggle your head down into one of these amazingly supportive and cosy silk or goose down pillows.

To add to your warmth and cosiness, put a cosy, brushed cotton ‘ Stowe’ duvet cover onto your duvet. If you still feel that you will not be warm and toasty enough, The Fine Cotton Company has a wonderful collection of throws to choose from.   Make your selection from the soft, pure organic fleece of the Hampton throw, or really indulge yourself and savour the supremely soft luxury of the fringed pure cashmere ‘Henley’ throw

So now that you have set up your bedroom to ensure a wonderful night’s sleep on a cold, winter night, and successfully layered your bed with the help of The Fine Cotton Company, all that you need to do is snuggle down under your duvet with that steaming mug of hot chocolate that we promised you earlier.

Wishing you many wonderful, long, cosy nights of sleep throughout the winter from everyone at The Fine Cotton Company

Can Organic Cotton bedlinen help with Ezcema?

Eczema is one of the greatest skin problems facing Britain’s youngsters today. Eczema has been diagnosed in one in five children and one in twelve adults in Britain, making eczema levels among the highest in the world. Because it is prone to drying out and is easily damaged, skin with eczema is more liable to become red and inflamed on contact with substances that are known to irritate or cause an allergic reaction.

So what can be done to help Children with Eczema?

Avoiding certain triggers including chemicals, rough clothing, excessive heat and moisture may reduce eczema and the itching and inflammation associated with it.

There may also be benefits to buying organic cotton bedding for your children so they sleep in a natural, chemical free environment including the following:

Chemical Free:

Organic cotton bed linen is pure, soft and gentle on the skin and is grown without harmful chemicals or pesticides so it doesn’t irritate delicate skin. So when you buy organic cotton bedding for your childrenyou know it is of the highest quality and ensures the safest and most comfortable sleeping environment.

 

Organic cotton bed linen is grown without chemicals, pesticides and genetic enhancers ensuring your children are not exposed to dangerous chemicals. Children sleep for around 40% of the so it’s important that your bedroom is as comfortable, warm, properly aired and as free from chemical irritants as possible. Childrens skin is much more sensitive than adults. If there are traces of bleaches or synthetic dyes in a childs bedding, they can cause harmful skin conditions or illness. So buying organic cotton bed linen is a great idea for anyone who is at all sensitive to chemicals and toxins.  Many chemicals used in the production of non organic bedding, such as fire retardants and formaldehyde are constantly seeping out of your non-organic sheets, duvet covers, and pillow cases.

Breathable:

The main benefits of organic bedding are that it is soft, natural, breathable and much healthier than conventional non organic cotton. Organic bedding and organic cotton linens make a world of difference to our optimal health, well-being and natural comfort for you and your family. Organic bedding is beautifully soft and smooth, and naturally resists common allergens.

Regulates Temperature:

Organic bed linen can help children have a healthy and comfortable night’s sleep as organic cottons are far more effective in absorbing moisture and perspiration than non-organic fabrics. This high level of absorption helps to eliminate the excess sweating that some people can experience when sleeping in non-organic cotton or synthetic bed linens.  Using organic cotton bed linen can also reduce incidences of fungal infections, like athletes’ foot, that are aggravated by sweating.

Stylish, Comfortable, Affordable and Long Lasting:

Organic cotton bed linen is very affordable and is also very durable and long lasting.   Because they have been grown naturally the organic cotton fibres reach their full growth and they are stronger than commercially grown cotton fibres.  When you care for your organic cotton bed linens properly they last longer than commercially grown cotton or synthetic sheets and duvet covers. Cotton is incredibly soft, machine-washable and allows the child’s skin to breathe naturally. Gone are the days when organic cotton bedding meant dull fabrics and unimaginative designs. Organic cotton bedding is now available in the most up to date, stylish designs in luxurious fabrics.

A number of parents have found organic children’s bed linen have helped to reduce discomfort associated with eczema.

Freshen up your Bedroom for Spring with Organic Cotton Bed Linen

Spring seems like it’s here with warm sunny weather.

Open your windows wide and let the spring air flow through your home sweeping out the winter.

It is time to introduce into your bedroom beautiful, soft 100% organic cotton bed linen, lightweight hypoallergenic silk duvets and silk pillows, for that fresh, crisp spring feeling.

Preparing your bedroom for Spring is all about keeping the room as cool as possible during the hot nights, and letting in the air and Spring light.   Pale, light colours are the best for the spring and summer, so if you are redecorating, why not paint the walls or paper them in light neutral colours?   Also, spring is a time when you want to be able to look at your garden or the view from your bedroom windows. Especially if you have a view over the sea, mountains or stunning countryside, what could be nicer on a sunny spring morning, than sitting in bed drinking your morning tea and looking at the view? So consider taking down heavy winter curtains or blinds and replacing them with light voile drapes, nets or thin blinds?

If your spring bedroom makeover is going to include buying bed linen, now is the time to invest in 100% organic bed linen.   You may have been put off the idea of buying organic bed linen in the past because you thought that it was too expensive, hard to wash and dry and that organic bed linen felt rough and only came in ugly, neutral colours.   However this is no longer the case and now you can buy affordable, beautiful quality organic bed linen in a range of gorgeous designs from companies such as The Fine Cotton Company.

Here at The Fine Cotton Company we have wonderful, luxurious ranges of 100% organic bed linen, including matching organic cotton duvet covers, sheets and pillowcases that will perfectly compliment your spring bedroom decor and not cost you a fortune.

There are other benefits in investing in organic cotton bed linen.   Organic cotton is grown without using any nasty chemicals and pesticides, so while you are sleeping you are not breathing in any of these chemical fumes or are not absorbing potentially damaging chemicals through your skin.   Organic cotton is also grown in a sustainable manner that maintains and replenishes soil fertility and minimises soil erosion.   In addition, the local farmers and their families are treated more ethically and enjoy better working conditions and fairer remuneration than commercial cotton growers.   So you can enjoy a beautiful spring bedroom and be kinder to your planet, by buying organic cotton bed linen.

Of course, as you spend between a quarter and a third of your life sleeping, it is important that during the warmer nights of the spring that you remain as cool and comfortable as possible.   One way to do this is to invest in a lightweight pure silk duvet.   Naturally hypoallergenic, pure silk duvets are very light, so maintain your comfort on hot, sweaty nights, as they are naturally breathable and heat conducting.   If you buy matching pure silk pillows, you are guaranteed a long and cool night’s sleep during the spring and summer months. If you also want the benefit of a mattress topper, you can also buy silk filled mattress toppers to improve your sleeping experience.   If you buy a silk filled mattress topper online from The Fine Cotton Company, you will find that it is naturally hypoallergenic and they really do help to regulate your body temperature, keeping you cooler on those hot nights.

Another way to ensure that you have a good night’s sleep during the summer months is to keep your bedroom clean and fragrant.   Change your bed linen regularly and wash it in an organic or natural washing liquid if you can and, if possible, dry it out in the fresh air and sunshine.   Vacuum and clean your bedroom regularly to get rid of any dust or dirt, using natural products so that you do not introduce any chemical irritants into your sleeping space.   If you want to fill your bedroom with beautiful summer fragrances, do not buy a fragrance machine that pumps out synthetic chemicals; buy some organic potpourri, or even better, organic scented candles that will fill your bedroom with magical summer scents.   The Fine Cotton Company has a wonderful range of organic scented candles that are made from 100% organic plant wax and blended with exquisitely scented essential oils. They have a wonderful new range of fresh, summer fragrances for you to enjoy; Sooth Me to relax you, Refresh Me to uplift you and Revive Me to energise you and fill you with the spirit of summer.

So that beautiful, fresh, light and airy summer bedroom could easily be yours.   You can buy all of  The Fine Cotton Company’s luxury organic ranges easily and securely online.  And just imagine what a wonderful night’s sleep that you will enjoy after you have slid between your adorably soft organic cotton sheets, the air beautifully scented from having burned a luxury organic scented candle and with the full moon peeping in your windows to bid you goodnight.
