We love snuggling up between soft and cooling French linen sheets in the warmer summer months. Just like those cooling linen trousers you keep for holidays, linen bedlinen helps wick away excess moisture, keeping you feeling fresh all night long, and waking up ready to take on the world.
If linen's not your thing then cotton is a classic choice - the natural fibres let your skin breathe and help you keep your cool all night long. Silk bed linen is a luxurious option, and wonderful when the mercury rises. With a naturally cooling touch, it helps wick away moisture for the ultimate in indulgent warm-weather comfort.
It goes without saying that you'll be more comfortable with a lighter tog duvet in the summer, in the region of 3.0 to 7.5 tog. Also, think about investing in a natural-fill duvet - silk, cotton help to wick away moisture and wool duvets help you regulate your body temperature while you sleep, making sultry summer nights that bit more comfortable.
If you're finding the heat too much but like to stay covered while you slumber, replace your duvet with a flat sheet and a light cotton bedspread or wool blanket for a cool but comforting way to sleep.
