Microfiber: it’s kind of a big deal. If you’ve done any research whatsoever on new furniture or linens, then you’ve probably heard of microfiber. In fact, you probably don’t even need to have done any research — just walking through a store could be enough to alert you to microfiber’s popularity.
Microfiber is — get this — made of micro fibers; that is, the threads are extremely fine. Threads are measured in terms of denier, which tells you how thin the fiber is. These fibers can be constructed two different ways: there are polyester threads and polyamide threads. Polyester attracts oil, and polyamide attracts water. These two are blended together in a microfiber product, which means that you get a highly absorbent material. And if you know anything about oil and water, they don’t mix well — so having a material that takes care of both is rather impressive.
Because microfiber threads are so tiny, the weave for any microfiber material is extremely dense. This also means that these materials have a high thread count, making them both super soft and super durable. You can wash these products hundreds of times and they will hold up, so they are also very cost-effective. It’s easy to justify spending the money on microfiber textiles and furniture, since the material will endure for years.
If you decide that you’re in the market for microfiber sheets, pillows, or even upholstery, US-Mattress is your premier destination. Our superior selection and friendly customer service representatives will help you in your decision so that you can experience your best sleep yet.

Memory foam pillows are a popular way to receive the support and comfort that we all desire as we sleep. Just as mattress companies constantly try to improve memory foam technology to provide a more comfortable sleeping experience, so also do pillow companies research and test this technology in order to enhance the material. One of these companies is New Wind.
New Wind is an Italian company that produces high-quality, eco-friendly memory foam pillows. They do not use environmentally harmful chemicals, such as substances containing chlorofluorine, in the manufacture of their products, nor do they use glue to help mix materials. And since they make their pillows in a mold, the pillows have an ergonomic, breathable design that allows air to circulate. This is to keep your head from overheating at night, since one of the main complaints with memory foam is that it sleeps warm by retaining body heat.
Besides being eco-friendly, one of the more notable qualities of New Wind pillows is that their memory foam is infused with natural oils to help improve your sleep. Some pillows have aloe in order to provide natural nourishment for your skin. Some have chamomile blended in for its calming and relaxing properties. There are even coconut-infused pillows and lavender-infused pillows to provide soothing aromatherapy. You can find a variety of sleep-enhancing New Wind pillows at US-Mattress, where we strive to provide you with the best prices on the best products for your best sleep yet.

Disney Frozen Throws at US-Mattress.com
Typically, I don’t go to the movies that often. Maybe, if it’s something I’m dying to see, I’ll catch a matinee one Saturday, or wait until my hometown’s tiny, one-screen theater shows it two months later. But for the most part, the first time I see any movie is sometime after it has come out on DVD. The same was true with the movie Frozen.
I didn’t see Frozen until this past summer. I know, I know, what was I thinking? But I have to say — I thought it was good. I thought it was so good that I watched it again the next night, and the night after that. I had “Let It Go” on loop during all my daily activities. I hummed “Love Is An Open Door” every time I saw anyone who looked remotely cute. I even put antlers on my cat so I could sing “Reindeers Are Better Than People” (this did not end so well). I was hooked.
So when I found out that US-Mattress had Frozen throws from Northwest Company, I was super excited. I ordered one immediately, and when it arrived, I spent my evening curled up under my new throw blanket watching my new favorite Disney movie. And almost as though it were planned, it began to snow outside.

Dear Snooze Guru,
My sister is having a baby next month, and I feel like I should get her something nice. The problem is that I’m a guy who doesn’t like shopping. I don’t understand differences between brands, or the nuances of the sales rack. I just don’t like it. Plus, I don’t know anything about babies, so how am I supposed to shop for one? However, I believe it is my duty as this baby’s uncle to get my sister a nice gift that she’ll appreciate and use. Could you please help me out?
Sean from Steeleville, IL
Sean, you know how it feels when you crawl into bed after just putting on a fresh set of sheets? It’s pretty great, right? Imagine how great it feels for babies. I bet your new niece or nephew (and your sister, of course) would really appreciate crib bedding, especially since it’s an absolute essential.
Plus, you can easily shop online for crib bedding. There are lots of choices out there, from the adorable Lambs and Ivy Peek-A-Boo Jungle set, to the cuddly Elve Teddy Bear set, to the Natura Organic 4-Piece set. Each of these brands has numerous options for you to choose from. You can also add a crib mattress protector or a baby comforter for good measure, to keep baby comfy at night.
So now that you have some quality options, take a look at US-Mattress.com to see the good deals you can get on crib bedding. Whether you need something that’s gender-neutral, or you want to wait until you know if it’s a boy or a girl, they have a great selection of everything you could ever want for baby’s bedroom.
Sleep well — you and that baby!
