For those who have always dreamt of refreshing sleep on hot summer nights, the dream is now a reality.
Thanks to the natural cellulose fibre Tencel®, the Bella Donna Summer Blanket incorporates a sophisticated climate control concept to ensure a pleasant temperature and a dry sleeping environment. It's incredible functional fibres allow the summer blanket to absorb, move and dissipate moisture far more effectively than standard cottons. The goal? Less sweating, and less disruption to your sleep on those hot nights, as well as reducing bacteria and unpleasant odours. The inner side of the blanket is made from high-quality cotton jersey, naturally enriched with aloe vera and silk proteins. Kind to your skin, and incredibly comfortable.
The Bella Donna Summer Blanket is designed to be used without a cover for maximum climate control. It makes an attractive addition to any bedroom and is available in a generous single size (150 * 220cm) or standard Superking size (260 * 220cm) (if you are willing to share it!).
A woven sheet, such as a classic cotton bedsheet is formed by weaving single individual strands of cotton thread in perpendicular fashion, much like a basket. By contrast, a Jersey knit, is formed with a continuous thread, knitted together in interlocking loops. The principle difference is that the 'knit' gives the cotton fabric 'stretch'. For our purposes, when analysing fitted sheets where the purpose is to obtain a perfect 'mattress hugging' fit, that requires no ironing, and stretches to conform to your body when lying on it (and always bounces back), it simply has to be Jersey. The only question that remained thereafter, is who makes the best?
Lyocell is a botanic fibre derived from tree pulp. We use it because it has 50% more moisture absorption than cotton. It is moisture and humidity that are the principle factors in temperature control, hence Lyocell takes moisture away from you keeping you both dry and cool. In its finest forms, Lyocell is produced with a truly silken feel. This is because under a microscope, Lyocell fibres are completely smooth, unlike Cotton. It has a luxurious, beautiful, smooth finish that is kind to your skin, and yet is also completely washable. Our unique 100% Lyocell Gold quilt covers are a true pleasure with advanced performance.
