SFERRA Thread Count

July 17, 2014

Dear Snooze Guru,

I’m shopping for SFERRA bedding, and I’m having a hard time finding out the thread count of their sheet sets. Do you know why they don’t specify the thread count of their sheets?

-Carolyn from Portsmouth, NH

Dear Carolyn,

Thank you for writing. SFERRA doesn’t publish the thread count of their bedding because thread count is not an indicator of quality. While many shoppers pay close attention to thread count when deciding on a new set of sheets, it’s certainly not the most important factor to consider, as the overall feel of an item has more to do with its finish than its thread count. While thread count will tell you how many threads are used, it doesn’t tell you anything about the quality of the fibers or how they are spun, woven, or finished.

Generally speaking, the finer the natural fibers, the better the fabric. After the fabric is woven, it goes through the complex process of finishing, which determines the final texture, color, strength, stability, and softness of the fabric. The Italian mills that produce SFERRA linens consider fine finishing an art form and are careful to guard the exact process.

Remember, the most important factor to consider when shopping for new sheets is how they feel to you. If they feel like they have what it takes to deliver the comfort you expect, then they’re probably a good choice. No matter which sheet set you decide to purchase, you can count on getting the best price when you shop at US-Mattress. If you need help finding the right set of sheets for you, feel free to speak with one of our friendly bedding experts at 1-800-455-1052.

Finding the Right Pillow

June 26, 2014

With so many different types of pillows on the market today, it’s becoming more difficult for shoppers to easily identify which is the best choice for them. A comfortable pillow is necessary to get the kind of deep rest that every individual seeks, and sleeping on the wrong kind of pillow can leave you feeling sore and tired in the morning. Since finding the right pillow is just as important as finding the right mattress, US-Mattress offers a handy a Pillow Comfort Scale to help shoppers find the best pillows for the way they sleep. This 5-point scale is easy to use and it’s a valuable tool that helps shoppers accurately narrow their search and make the best purchase.

1: Firm
Firm pillows are ideal for side sleepers because they give the right amount of support to the neck, back, and shoulders. Firm pillows don’t conform as easily as softer pillows, so stomach sleepers should avoid these.

2: Medium-Firm
Pillows with medium-firmness are perfect for back and side sleepers who favor a firmer support, but also like to feel some cushioning.

3: Medium
Medium pillows are great for sleepers who change positions throughout the night, as well as those without a specific comfort preference. Unless you’re adamant about having a very soft or very firm pillow, you’ll likely find these pillows comfortable and supportive.

4: Medium-Soft
Medium-soft pillows are a great choice for back or stomach sleepers who have a preference for softer comfort. Back sleepers should be cautious when purchasing one of these. Larger bodied back sleepers will likely find these pillows too soft and unsupportive.

5: Soft
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys supreme softness, then you’ll enjoy pillows in this category. They are ideal for stomach sleepers who like to snuggle and scrunch their pillows at night. Most sleepers will find these pillows too soft, so make sure you really like a soft pillow before purchasing one with this rating.

Now that you have the tools you need, you’re just a few clicks away from finding the perfect pillow for the way you sleep. Choose your comfort level below, and find your new pillow today!

The Cotton Conundrum

June 24, 2014

Capture

Are Softness and Durability Mutually Exclusive?

What do you expect out of your bedding? A recent report shows that for a large percentage of consumers, it’s durability. For another, it’s pure cotton (more than 60% of consumers are displeased with synthetic cotton replacement fibers in their sheets). On the surface, this represents an interesting dilemma because, while 100% cotton creates a softer fiber, it’s also susceptible to pilling and showing signs of wear. Whereas, while synthetic fibers can fall short of replicating the true softness of cotton, manufacturers use them because they help to create a more durable product. So does this mean that consumers have to choose between having durable sheets or having soft sheets? Fortunately, no. At US-Mattress, you can shop through a vast selection of 100% cotton sheets and other bedding items that will deliver the softness you want with the durability you need.

Just because cotton isn’t as durable as synthetic fibers, that doesn’t mean you can’t get years of use out of your cotton linens. Often, when 100% cotton linens show wear quickly, it’s usually the result of poor care. Paying strict attention to the washing instructions on the label of your linens is a great way to ensure you get the most use out of them. For more tips on how to get a long life out of your linens, refer to our earlier post, “Caring for Your Bedding.”

Since the price of cotton rose substantially in 2011, consumers have been paying a higher premium to get the comfort of 100% cotton bedding. When you shop for cotton linens at US-Mattress, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re receiving the best price on the highest quality.

More Cool Bedding

Continuing with this week’s summer bedding theme, I’d like to share some products that will help you stay cool throughout the hot, sweaty nights of summer.

Advanced Systems

Your bed traps a lot of heat, and a cooling mattress pad can make a big difference on a sweaty night. Sleep experts say that the best sleeping temperature is right around 65°F. It can be really hard to get that cool on a hot night, especially when you’re under the covers. The Chilipad from Chili Technology features a micro-climate thermostat control system that cools your bed, allowing you to sleep comfortably without having to throw off your sheets. It can cool your bed all the way down to 46°F, and its wireless remote and digital display allow you to program the perfect temperature. Also, you won’t have to stow away the Chilipad in the fall, as it functions as a heating pad as well.

Traditional Mattress Pads

If you would rather employ a traditional mattress pad to help keep you cool, then you’ll enjoy the Design Weave Dreamaire Outlast Mattress Pad. It features a soft and luxurious Outlast knit fabric that will help you enjoy dry, comfortably sleep all night long. The mattress pad is also breathable and easily machine washable.

Don’t suffer through another summer of sweaty, sleep-deprived nights. This year, take the stress and sweat out of your sleep, and use these helpful products to enjoy cool, relaxing rest.

Experience the Joy of Linen

Prepare for Sweaty Nights

Now that the winter is finally behind us, we can embrace the sights, sounds, and sensations that came along with summer. This year, as you prepare for days of fun in the sun, don’t forget to also prepare for the sweaty and humid nights that follow. If you haven’t experienced the joy of linen during hot, sticky months, then this summer is the perfect time for you to rethink your bedding. Linen is the best fabric for hot, sweaty days and nights. It makes for excellent clothing, table linens, and bedding, so there’s room to enjoy linen in every area of your life.

Linen is made from the fibers of the flax plant, and it’s one of the oldest textiles known to man. It’s favored in hot parts of the world because of its durability and absorbency. It’s also a great conductor, taking heat away from your body to cool you down. Linen is also 2 to 3 times stronger than cotton, and it’s a smooth fiber so it won’t pill or produce lint. Linen is relatively easy to take care of, and it resists dirt and stains so your linen fabric stays looking new for longer.

Head to US-Mattress for great deals on linen bedding. While you might feel like you’re still recovering from the brutal, cold nights of winter, you’ll be cranking up the AC before you know it. Prepare for the sweaty nights of summer today!

Dear Snooze Guru,

I enjoyed reading your post a while ago about the Sealy Posturepedic Allergy Protection Pillow Encasement. I suffer from allergies all year, but the spring is when my allergies tend to get the best of me. I’m willing to try any remedy that will help me get deep sleep, even when my allergies are at their worst. When I was reading about the pillow encasement, I wondered if Sealy could apply that same technology to a mattress encasement. Is there a product available that can protect my mattress from allergens too?

A few weeks ago, you wrote an article about the Beautyrest Allergen Reduction Pillow. As a lifelong seasonal allergy sufferer, your post caught my eye. I’m definitely interested in allergen protection, especially this time of year when it seems like I’m allergic to everything. I really enjoy the pillow I sleep on now, and I’m hoping that there’s something I can do to protect my current pillow from allergens. Any suggestions?

-Pat from Howe, IN

Dear Pat,

Thank you for writing. As a fellow allergy sufferer, I know how tough it can be to get restful sleep this time of year.

The Sealy Posturepedic Allergy Protection Pillow Encasement surrounds your pillow to prevent exposure to irritating allergens, dust mites, and other microbes, while still allowing you to experience the full comfort of your pillow. It has a zippered construction that keeps the entire pillow protected, and it’s also machine washable for easy care.

Whether you suffer from seasonal allergies, or you have everyday sensitivities to dust-mites and microbes, the Sealy Posturepedic Allergen Protection Pillow Encasement can help you enjoy nights of restful, healthy sleep. It comes backed by a 10-year warranty, so you can count many seasons of allergen protection.
