Slip into something comfy
Made from soft suede and quilted satin, these slippers make winding down for sleep something to look forward to.
Breathable and antibacterial
Made from 100 percent French flax linen, this buttery-soft set is temperature-regulating and breathable. Plus, it’s naturally antibacterial if you’re a sweaty sleeper.
Old-school Egyptian cotton
Good-quality cotton is both breathable and smooth. The two-ply weave in this pillowcase makes it durable enough for seasons to come.
Keep your hair off your neck to stay cool while you sleep. These pure-silk elastics will do the job without damaging your hair.
Sustainable and sweat proof
Not only is bamboo sustainable and softer than cotton or linen, the natural fibres are also hypoallergenic and moisture wicking.
Linen is the best fabric for hot summer nights. As well as being soft and cooling, it’s also super durable and will last for several years, so it’s worth investing in a set or two.
If all else fails, sleeping in the nude is one way to stay cool. Before bed, cover up with a lightweight robe.
The elasticated waistband and loose fit on this linen pyjama set makes it not only comfy, but also cute enough to wear to brunch.
