Summer days are all about fun- filled beach-trips, short shorts and colorful summer dresses. Summer nights, however, can be quite the bother. We can all recall waking up in the middle of a hot summer night, drenched in sweat. If you, like many of us, are accustomed to sleeping with the cozy comfort of a bed cover, summer nights can be an ordeal of restless turning and tossing aside your bedcovers.
Your cozy year-round bedcovers just aren’t comfortable on hot summer nights. But, here’s the good news; you don’t have to spend the entire summer, sweating night after sleepless night under your once cozy bedcovers. Not when there’s a simple solution. What the simple solution? Replace your year round bedcover with a breathable duvet and a lightweight, linen duvet cover.
Are you paying attention? Notice I recommended a duvet and linen duvet cover. That’s two separate items of bedding. To help you avoid summer insomnia, there are just two things to things to consider. The duvet’s tog rating and the fabric your duvet cover is made from. The tog rating tells you how warm you will be when sleeping under the duvet. The lower the tog, the cooler you'll be. Stick with a lower tog of around 4.5 for summer. The next big decision is choosing right summer duvet cover. This is where it gets easy. You simply cannot go wrong with linen. Duvets covers made from linen will pull sweat away from the body, absorb it, and releases it quickly so that you remain cool on those hot summer nights. Remember, no more sleepless summer nights. Sleep like a log this summer; make the switch to linen duvets covers.
