Eucalyptus Sheets

Here are the benefits: sustainable production, moisture wicking, resistance to wrinkles, comfortable in all temperatures, and even hygienic. Woven Tencel sheets from Malouf is made from the synthetic fiber found from cellulose fibers in eucalyptus trees. The wood fibers are spun into yarn which is then woven together to create breathable and durable fabric.

Tencel is sustainable. It is created through a closed-loop process that allows for almost all its non-toxic solvent to be recovered and recirculated. Along with the revived nature of the eucalyptus tree, the product is long lasting and durable. Its moisture management and wicking make the fabric breathable in all climates also lend itself to limiting bacterial growth and producing a set of hygienic sheets. Along with these properties, since the fabric is created from smooth fibers, it leads to soft, flexible, and comfortable sleeping. These sheets are perfect for a sleeper who needs a breathable and cooling sleep environment.

Linen Sheets

Linen is created from the flax plant, a diverse and renewable resource. Linen fabric is biodegradable and highly absorbent, temperature regulating and becomes softer after each wash. This blend of fibers is a breathable fabric which can wick away moisture, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. Some studies have suggested that linen bedding can improve sleep-- the study from the University of Milan found that you fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood after sleeping on linen sheeting.
