The best bedding to keep you cool in summer
As summer sets in and the nights heat up, it’s time to make the small but necessary changes to your bedding. Explore our simple guide to updating your bedding for summer and ensure a great night’s sleep throughout the warmer seasons.
Sheet selection plays a pivotal role in the quality of sleep and certain fibres are better suited to warmer weather.
Lightweight, breathable material is key to maintaining a comfortable flax and is naturally temperature regulating, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter. Linen softens with each wash and tumble dry, further enhancing its comfort each time you sleep.

Cotton is also a natural fibre that offers breathability and softness. Choose a cotton percale sheet set if you prefer a crisp, cool feeling against your skin. If you'd rather silky smoothness, opt for a cotton sateen sheet set. A lower thread count will create a more lightweight feeling and is best suited to warmer months.
Our renewable TENCEL™ collection not only has a reputation for sustainability, but it’s gentle on the skin, highly breathable and temperature regulating.

For the hot summer months, there’s nothing like a light and airy quilt to keep your body temperature regulated. Choose from a cotton quilt or wool and cotton blend. Both options are crafted with breathable, natural fibres that create a cooling process, drawing moisture away from the body for a more comfortable night’s sleep.
When updating pillows, natural fibres such as Latex or feather & down offer breathability and temperature regulation. Feather & down is super soft, luxuriously lightweight and easy to shape.
Latex is a natural material derived from rubber trees, its open cell structure and air channels ensure optimal breathability. Latex is naturally low allergenic and resistant to bacteria, mould and dust mites. Latex pillows offer the perfect balance of comfort and support.
For warmer sleepers, we recommend the Therapillo™ Memory Foam Pillow. It features a cooling gel top, where warmth is transferred from the head and neck into the cooling gel for a comfortable and cool night’s sleep.
To complete the styling of your beautiful summer bed, add a blanket or bed cover. Either can be used to replace your quilt during summer, and offer just the right level of warmth and weight during warm nights. Select a blanket or bed cover that coordinates with your seasonal bed linen and use it as an additional layer of warmth during winter.
