When choosing summer bedding, keep in mind that there are things you can do to keep cool even on the hottest nights! Obviously, you'll want to avoid thick feather and down products since they're made to keep you warm, although a featherbed can keep you cooler because of the air pockets the feathers create under your body. You'll want to look for bedding that is 100% cotton. Cotton is an all-natural fiber and will naturally absorb the moisture of your skin, keeping you cool. Satins and polyester items, while cool at first, quickly warm and usually aren't the best choice if you're trying to keep cool. Stay below a 500 thread count when choosing a fabric, since the higher the thread count, the thicker and denser it usually is. We highly recommend one of our 500 thread count Pima cotton sheet sets if you want the lightest, yet softest sheet available.
