4 TIPS FOR A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

Bedding woven with high-quality natural materials offers increased comfort and thus a better sleeping experience.

Start by choosing bedding in a material that meets your needs and thereby ensures better sleep. Bedding woven with natural high-quality materials, such as linen or Egyptian cotton, ensures durability, and you will typically find that the bedding only gets softer with time. Bedding of high quality can be used again and again without losing colour or shape.

When we weave cotton bedding, we always use the best Egyptian cotton, with an average fibre length of 32 mm. This variety represents only 3–5% of the total cotton production in the world market. Yarns of this quality ensure exceptional softness, as the yarns are not spun as hard to achieve optimal strength. We can therefore weave with fewer threads and achieve greater breathability, which provides increased comfort and a better sleeping experience.

Wash

Wash bedding with ordinary detergent for coloured textiles – we recommend our DAMAVASK, which also maintains the colours. We do not recommend using rinsing agents.

Egyptian cotton: Generally, wash at 60°C. Whites are washable at 95°C, but it is unnecessary, as it wears the cotton fibres and impacts the environment. The cotton’s fibres open up at 60°C and become clean at this temperature. If the bedding has only been used a few times, then washing at 40°C will also suffice. We recommend that you fold out the product completely before washing and avoid overfilling the machine. Stretch the bedding slightly after washing.

How often?

We recommend that bed linen be washed every 14 days. We shed skin cells and release moisture while we sleep, and to prevent dust mites and allergies, it is important that bedding is fresh and clean, especially for our own wellbeing. And anyway, is there anything better than crawling into a bed made with a freshly aired blanket and freshly laundered bedding?

Drying

Hanging bedding is the gentlest way to dry it; this makes the bedding smooth without any need to iron it. Bedding can be ironed to make it extra smooth on the surface. Rolling is also an option, but it wears the fibres more. We do not recommend tumble-drying, as this wears the fibres unnecessarily – much more so than ironing and rolling.

Airing

Air out the bedroom every morning and shake the blankets and pillows. Put a bedspread over the bedding if you like, but never before the mattress, blankets and pillows have had a chance to breathe after the night – dust and moisture are not good for you or the bedding. Hang the blankets, if possible, in order to air them – but hang them in the shade so that the sun does not tenderise the fibres.
