Jersey fitted sheets perfect for rolling on!
The role of quality sleep is vital for both our mental and physical health. The best way to complement a relaxing bedtime routine is to ensure you follow through with a good night’s sleep.
One of the ways to do this is to make sure organic textiles have been used, both for your long-term health as well as the environment. Jersey fitted sheets, also known as t-shirt sheets, are a staple type of fabric for bedding but are often made with blended synthetic materials.
Excellent opportunity to try new things
College, oh college. That lovely moment when we had our first taste of independence, a ridiculous amount of free time, and no money. We chose jersey fitted sheets — the old, worn-in T-shirt of bedding – because we were breaking (and partially because mom wasn't there to do our laundry). Jersey fitted sheets are appealing because they are wrinkle-resistant, low-maintenance, and luxuriously soft.
Downsides of Jersey Fitted Sheets
The type of material used to construct your bedding can affect how warm you become at night. Even if you're looking for a pair of extra-warm sheets for a comfortable winter bedroom makeover, synthetics will make you sweat. Synthetic materials (even cotton jersey blends) impede the flow of air through the fibers, trapping heat, unlike natural fabrics like 100 percent organic cotton.
Because your body can't adequately control your temperature, you sweat a lot more. As a result, the quality of your sleep suffers. Synthetic fibers can also release minor amounts of pollutants like PFCs when exposed to too much heat.
They can be absorbed by your skin if the fabric does not provide adequate ventilation. According to studies, these synthetic particles might build up in our blood over time and cause health problems in the long run.
Jersey Cotton Sheets Versus 100% Cotton Sheets
Many of us may not have paid much attention to our sleep patterns before the current surge in remote working and social isolation. However, in these uncertain times, when there is little sense of normalcy, we've become more prone to bad sleep as a result of physical and emotional exhaustion.
It's reasonable that some people struggle to obtain a good night's sleep due to a lack of social engagements and outdoor activities to keep us busy and engaged during the day. Choosing proper bedding is one step toward achieving a night of more restful sleep, whether you're having difficulties falling asleep or have more severe insomnia.
- While jersey bed sheets are touted as being softer and fluffier than cotton alternatives, many people are unaware that the texture of their bedding is determined more by thread count and quality than by the type of cloth.
What is the material used to make jerseys?
When jersey was first established in the Middle Ages, it was made of wool, but technological advancements have led to the usage of synthetic fibers and cotton instead. Why? Cotton jersey is less expensive than wool, and the fabric is more durable thanks to synthetic fibers.
What is the issue with jersey fitted sheets?
Synthetics have a long list of drawbacks: From the environmental effects of mass microplastic pollution in our oceans and landfills to the fact that they require thousands of chemicals to manufacture and gather many more by-products, residues, or compounds, microplastics have a long list of negative consequences.
