A good night’s sleep is an integral part of having healthy mind & body, that’s why luxury bedding is a worthwhile investment. Not only will upgrading your bedding & bed linen have a profound effect on the quality of your sleep it will also add style and substance to your bedroom.
For the ultimate collection of luxury bedding start with a high quality duvet, pillows, and a mattress topper. Brinkhaus produce a decadent range of quality bedding, they use ‘long staple Egyptian’ cotton for all of their products and treat all of their cotton with the medicott® process, a non fungicide non microbiological treatment which uses no chemicals and treats the cotton in an entirely ecological way to render it resistant to fungal attack. Therefore all of their products are as safe as possible for people who are prone to allergies.
With good quality bed linen a thread count is often provided. Woven fabric is made up of a warp thread which runs vertically, and a weft thread which runs horizontally. The thread count is used to describe the number of these threads per square inch and the general rule is the higher the thread count, the higher the quality of the bed linen. The thread count is also influenced by the construction of the quality of yarn used. With finer threads such as Egyptian cotton more threads can be woven into a square inch, which produces a finer fabric.
When choosing new bed linen there are lots of different fabrics available and it can be confusing as to which one is right for you. Cotton is probably the most popular, and is it is low maintenance, versatile and affordable. Egyptian cotton is the highest quality and softest-feeling cotton available and is often available in higher thread counts than other fabric. Cotton percale is another widely used fabric for bed linen; it is a variation on the regular cotton where the cotton yarn is given a combed treatment. This gives the bed linen a lovely smooth finish that has a high quality feel about it.
Investing in luxury bedding means investing in quality, and ensuring that the right care of your new bedding is maintained is extremely important. For example, if your duvet is down filled always give it a good shake when making the bed, this will fluff the filling and create air movement which freshens the duvet. Natural fiber or fleece filled duvet should not be shaken, as this may tear the fleece. Taking care to follow the individual care instructions of each piece of bed linen is also essential to maintain the quality. Some fabric may need to be washed at a higher or lower temperature than normal, these instructions are there to prolong the life and in turn the quality of your luxury bedding.
You spend a third of your lifetime in bed so why not spend it in beautiful luxury bedding, change today and sleep soundly every night.
