High thread count Sateen for a simple yet sumptuous scheme –
Seville 600 TC Organic Cotton Collection

FCC 1

Natural sunlight floods into this all white room with natural wood flooring.  Crisp, white cotton bed sheets and a simple taupe throw complete the look to create a relaxed and comfortable Scandi vibe.

This set is sourced exclusively from Europe and has a really high thread count sateen with a single line stitch detail.  It feels wonderfully soft and luxurious to touch

All aboout thread count:

Thread count is the amount of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch
Horizontal threads are referred to as ‘weft’
Vertical threads are known as ‘weft’
A good standard thread count is around 200
Anything higher than 200 will feel very soft and luxurious but it also depends on the count of yarn used
The maximum thread count is 1000

FCC 4

“Attention to detail and exquisite finishing touches, like the three-line satin stitch details on our Genoa linen, make for a room that would look at home in any boutique hotel. Introduce a velvet statement headboard and pile on the pillows and scatter cushions for that stylish boutique hotel finish.” –  Jane Robson, Founder at The Fine Cotton Company

Summer Duvets and Tog Rating:

Don’t forget whats on the inside counts too.  We advise to switch to a lighter tog duvet in the summer months.

Tog ratings are based on a duvet’s ability to trap warm air
The higher the tog rating the warmer the duvet
A 3.0 – 6.0 tog rating is the best for spring/summer

 “All of our duvets are natural filled and have efficient thermal properties allowing the skin to breathe more effectively. Duvets with natural fillings are soft, light, and comfortable and do not need to feel heavy so their weight can be deceptive. They are also highly resilient.

“There are benefits to all types of fillings and it really is down to personal choice.”

Tips to Keep Cool at night with Cotton Bedding

TOP TIPS FOR A COOL NIGHT’S SLEEP

Choose your bedding carefully to make sure you have a light weight low tog duvet for the time of year and organic cotton sheets. Most people find a 3.0 or 4.5 Tog are adequate in the summer months. If you are too warm in bed it can lead to a poor night’s sleep.

Using breathable organic cotton bed linen which is effective in absorbing moisture and perspiration, it becomes much easier for your body to regulate your temperature while you sleep. If you use synthetic bedding, it can make you feel hot and sticky in the night.

Check your mattress protector is a cool cotton or hypoallergenic silk which really does regulate body temperature.

Silk filled duvets and mattress toppers from The Fine Cotton Company are naturally hypoallergenic and they really do help to regulate your body temperature.

Relax before going to bed – maybe have a cool bath or shower, listen to some quiet music or a relaxation tape or do some yoga.
