Who else sticks their feet out of the bottom of the bed every night? Is your sleep temperature, just too hot for even the crispest of sheets? I feel very fortunate to now manage my hot night sweats and insomnia with the aid of recently prescribed HRT, however I can also highly recommend searching up ‘Smart Temperature’ from Fine Bedding, clever cool crisp sheets to manage your sleep temperature.
Their own cool crisp sheets have some special magic added which helped me to manage my sleep temperature before I succumbed to a trip to the GP. Afterall, SLEEP is so important, it is the body’s super power and the only time our body gets the rest it needs.
Fine Bedding’s Smart Temperature collection has also been a godsend for other members of my family who find that they have night sweats too (teenage angst!) – we’d been using 100% cotton sheets anyway, I mean, long gone are the days of nylon sheets (yikes, who remembers the static from a sleepover at your Aunty’s?).
But the Fine Bedding soft 200 – 400 thread count cotton bed linen is created with the unique Smart Temp™ technology from Swiss textile innovators HeiQ, delivering temperature control for optimal comfort.
The Smart Temperature Duvet Cover uses a dynamic cooling system, designed to help you feel cool and comfortable throughout the night. The intelligent thermoregulation system works by sensing an increase in your body temperature and activates a unique cooling effect; and when the body temperature drops, the reduced body heat will guide the cooling effect to ease back so that you won’t feel a chill. The perfect duvet cover when you’re prone to night sweats.
Besides cooling your body, the Smart Temperature Duvet Cover is of course machine washable which makes it easy to use, with the technology remaining fully effective even after repeated laundering.
