This entire week is dedicated to healthy sleep. That’s because for the last 25 years since 1998, the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) hosts Sleep Awareness Week®. This national campaign emphasizes the important connection between your sleep, your health and well-being. To learn more about being your best slept self®, visit the official National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Awareness Week® webpage. 

At Standard Textile Home, we understand that beds are a refuge for rest and restoration. In celebration of the National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Awareness Week®, we’ve pulled some of our products that will give you nothing but zzz’s best night sleep. 

Hit the Sheets 

Nothing beats slipping into bed with comfy bed linens at the end of a long day. Selecting the best sheet set that is comfortable to you is an important part of sleep hygiene. When choosing a sheet set there are many factors to consider from the feel of the fabric to how the sheets may affect your body temperature through breathability. 

Chosen as the best hotel-style sheets by The Sleep Doctor, our Percale Sheet Set is made from long-staple Supima cotton, which inherently offers natural durability and breathability. Crisp to the touch at first, the Percale Sheet Set fibers will relax and soften over time for a relaxed, lived-in feel. Due to the tight one-over-one weave, the Percale sheets won’t drape closely to the body or trap heat, keeping you cool and comfortable as you sleep.   

Enhancing your sleep experience 

Seasonally versatile, feather toppers offer a balance of softness and support that noticeably change a mattress’ feel providing a softer or firmer sleep experience. Featuring a top layer of plush pure down over a second layer of feather fill for a cozy comfort, The Sleep Foundation gives our Down Featherbed the best hotel-style feather topper “resulting in a cloud-like feel without excessive sinkage.”  

The shell is made of breathable cotton, which neutralizes the heat-insulating properties provided by the down. Thick baffle box construction prevents the down from shifting, the fill from escaping, and eliminates cold spots as you snooze the night away. 

Reduce stress for a good night’s sleep 

It’s no secret that there is a connection between stress and sleep quality. According to the National Sleep Foundation’s 2022 Sleep in America® Poll, lower levels of stress are strongly associated with higher quality sleep. While other health factors may play into quality sleep, stress management is one we often toss and turn over. 

One way to help reduce stress at bedtime is with a weighted blanket. Also known as Gravity Blankets, weighted blankets are a science-backed, non-pharmaceutical solution to battling stress, anxiety, and insomnia. The Gravity Blanket is the only weighted blanket studied and proven to improve sleep quality.  

According to Penn Medicine, a weighted blanket uses “pressure therapy”, a calm-inducing amount of pressure on your entire body, like the feeling of being hugged, swaddled, stroked or held. Utilizing the power of weight to relax the nervous system, the pressure of weighted blankets puts your autonomic nervous system into “rest” mode, reducing some of the symptoms of anxiety, such as a quickened heart rate or breathing. This can provide an overall sense of calm. 

Made of a premium micro-plush duvet cover and an inner weighted piece containing fine-grade glass beads, our Gravity Blanket gets 5-stars for a better night’s sleep. Available in 15 pounds, and two colors, grey and white, Gravity Blankets can keep you cool, calm, and collected. 54.7% of users reported Gravity Blanket helped reduce overall stress, and when you’re not stressed, you can be your best! The benefits are endless with the Gravity Blanket, learn more here.
