Temperature could be the key to a better night’s sleep

Finding the perfect cold spot made easy

Sleep is sacred, especially as our modern-day pace of life keeps picking up speed. The most common cause of summertime insomnia (shockingly) is hot temperatures. Aside from the fact that we’re not used to dealing with heat in the UK, many studies link the body’s temperature regulation with sleep patterns, which is why we naturally become sleepier in colder temperatures.

Sheridan, an Australian homeware company running since 1967, has put together a few of their best products that will help us sleep soundly through the unusually warm weather we’ve been having.


It all starts at the sheets: where finding the correct material that won’t let out too much heat, but can still keep you cool, is paramount. Here Sheridan have a Super Soft Tencel® Cotton Sheet Collection which has body heat regulating properties. It absorbs moisture fast and is easily machine washable. The collection comprises the perfect combination of premium Tencel and the finest quality cotton to improve sleep experience, whilst also increasing the strength and longevity of the sheets.


Dermatologists have been advising that the right pillowcase can significantly reduce signs of aging. It emerges that silk works specifically well. Sheridan have you covered here too, with Lanham Silk Tailored pillowcases made with 100% mulberry silk.


Getting to the core of the range, is the pillow itself. Anyone who has spent a night trying to fold a flimsy hotel pillow into something vaguely comfortable will understand how important this particular piece of bedtime kit is. Kally Sleep’s Adjustable Pillow contains four independent hollowfibre, hypoallergenic filled pads to adjust the height and density of the pillow. That way you can adjust it to the shape that fits your form best. And it’s still heat regulated because of the soft breathable cotton it’s made from.

Switching to any of these more breathable materials will help you best set yourself up for sweet dreams and deep sleep over the summer.
