Why choose 100% cotton bedding for children? Children spend an average of 10 hours asleep at night so it is important they are wrapped up in high-quality bed linen.
Cool in summer and cosy in winter 100% cotton bedding naturally absorbs body moisture, keeping children sweat free during hot summer months, yet warm during chilly months. This fact alone makes it a popular choice, but cotton bedding is also known for its comfort, lightness and softness. Made from a natural fibre, cotton is a breathable fabric and allows the air to circulate, promoting a much healthier sleeping environment for your child.
Contrary to belief, children’s bedding in 100% cotton is easy to care for. Static proof, it washes well and leaves bedding crisp and cool to the touch. If you’re worried about sticky fingers and tough stains, stay safe in the knowledge that cotton is a water-loving fibre and releases dirt easily when wet. So it can be washed time and time again without the colours fading. If properly cared for, cotton actually retains its beauty and becomes softer over time. A feature you and your child can enjoy during bedtime reading and snuggles!
If unsure of how to choose 100% cotton bedding for children, read the product description or label that states the exact percentage of cotton. Don’t be fooled by the phrase ‘cotton rich’, all it means is that the percentage of cotton is so small, putting a number to it would be embarrassing. Look out for 100% cotton bedding for children with a minimum of 57 thread count or more. The more threads, the softer the duvet set will be and this can be a particularly important feature for children with allergies. Cotton is naturally hypo-allergenic meaning its unlikely that your child will have an adverse reaction to it and will be gentle on the skin. If your child is sensitive to chemical products, cotton bedding could be the solution.
Lastly, less of an immediate benefit but still a very nice feature. Cotton bedding is 100% organic and so is gentle to the environment. So when that time comes to throw it away, what you are really doing is recycling natural materials.
