5 Reasons Why LOTUS Canadian Birch Sheets are the Best Sheets for Hot Sleepers

Do you have a tendency to sleep hot? It’s no fun to wake up sweaty and uncomfortable. Whether your night sweats can be blamed on hot weather, warm pajamas, or your sleeping partner’s habit of setting the heat too high, trying to stay cool can help you get a good night’s sleep.

Your bed sheets can go a long way toward helping your body stay cool so you can sleep comfortably all night long. If you tend to sleep hot, you may want to invest in cooling bed sheets that are specifically designed to regulate your temperature throughout the night. We may be a little biased, but we think LOTUS Canadian Birch bed sheets are the very best you can buy – here’s why.

5 Reasons Why LOTUS Canadian Birch Sheets are the Best for Hot Sleepers

1. Moisture-wicking Material

2. Naturally Cool

3. Breathable

4. Sustainable production

5. Canadian Made.

Overheating while you sleep is no joke – and it’s more than just a minor inconvenience or discomfort. Sleeping too hot can seriously throw off your sleep cycle, which then can lead to other health and well-being challenges that range from irritability and trouble concentrating to increased stress levels and breakdowns in your immune system.

There are many ways to address night sweats and overall hot sleeping – you can move to a glacier, you can crank up your air conditioning as high as it can go, you can sleep in the buff. But none of these remedies may be as effective as outfitting your bed with cool, breathable sheets that can help you naturally regulate your body temperature while you sleep.

Cooling sheets aren’t magic. They can’t always address the cause of your night sweats – especially if your sweating is caused by health issues, such as hormonal changes, diet, or medication. But using cooling sheets as part of your bedding can help you stay cool and comfortable, so you get a good night’s sleep, each and every night. Just like you reach for flannel sheets and the softest, best duvet for comfort during chilly winter months, knowing how to choose the best sheets and bedding for warm nights can help keep your bed from turning into a sauna.

For sleepers who are hot no matter the outdoor temperature and time of year, LOTUS™ Canadian Birch Sheets have you covered for that, too. With their soft, unique blend of birch fibres LOTUS Birch Sheets can help cool you down and keep you comfy while you sleep.

5 Reasons Why LOTUS Canadian Birch Sheets are the Best for Hot Sleepers

You can count on breathable LOTUS Sheets to keep you cool and fresh all night long. Here are the top reasons why:

1. Moisture-Wicking Material

You can find bed sheets made from a variety of materials ranging from polyester, microfiber, and linen to silk sheets and weaves that include both sateen and percale. While the most common or traditional sheet material remains cotton, LOTUS sheets are made of birch. Yep, that’s right – birch, which has become an increasingly popular material for bed sheets.

Birch Sheets offer a whole host of benefits, especially for hot sleepers. For one, birch is naturally moisture wicking, so LOTUS sheets pull sweat away from your body so it can evaporate. That means the sheets won’t trap your own body heat and force you to sleep within a cocoon of your own sweat. Pulling your sweat away from your body as fast as possible keeps you from getting overheated and uncomfortable.

2. Naturally Cool

LOTUS bed sheets just feel good, plain and simple. The natural birch fiber helps ensure that these sheets always feel soft and cool to the touch, which is incredibly soothing to flustered and hot sleepers. This is another reason why birch sheets continue to gain popularity within the bedding market – and we think LOTUS makes the best sheets in the industry. They’re crazy soft and snuggable like you won’t believe. We dare you not to wrap yourself up in them the minute you get your hands on them.

LOTUS Sheets are also super low-maintenance – they’re machine washable and can go in the dryer, so there’s no need to worry about high-effort or expensive maintenance. Birch bed sheets will get softer and softer every time you wash them, so you’ll love them more every time you sleep on them. In fact, LOTUS Sheets are some of the softest bed sheets you can find anywhere.

Besides their cooling effects, softness and overall awesomeness, LOTUS sheets also are hypoallergenic and environmentally-friendly. Adding a set of LOTUS Sheets to your bedding collection makes sense for a lot of reasons – especially for sleepers with sensitive skin or allergies or who want to make buying decisions that are good for the environment.

3. Breathable

LOTUS bed sheets also are extremely breathable, so they allow air to freely pass through the sheets. Breathability is essential for staying well-ventilated and cool during the night.

A big part of breathability comes down to thread count. An optimal thread count that strikes the right balance between durability and breathability is often a good indicator of how cool a sheet set can keep sleepers throughout the night. With LOTUS Sheets, you can enjoy a soft, birch-based fabric that is inherently breathable, while also being extremely durable — so you don’t even have to worry about thread count. These high-tech bed sheets are scientifically designed to provide the best breathability, softness, and stretchiness for a better night’s sleep than ever before. In fact, LOTUS sheets are 83% more breathable than top-selling sheets made of Egyptian cotton.

Let’s be real for just a second. Thread count is not the be-all, end-all measure of sheet quality that experts used to think. It’s an antiquated measure of the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch of sheet fabric. Traditionally, experts recommended that the higher the thread count, the softer, more luxurious and higher quality a particular sheet. However, that myth has been debunked in recent years, especially after sheet manufacturers learned to monkey with the system. For example, a sheet manufacturer might just use a low-quality weave in a high volume, which makes the thread count meaningless as a measure of overall quality.

In general, you’re probably good with a thread count anywhere between 250 and 400 – and it’s rare to find a genuine thread count any higher than 400, anyway. You can only fit so many threads within a square inch, so be cautious – and a little skeptical – when you see thread counts advertised with a higher thread count.

For cooling sheets, around 300 is a comfortable thread count. A too-high thread count often means a thick, non-breathable sheet that can roast you during a night’s sleep.

4. Sustainable Production

Birch fibres are created in an environmentally responsible, closed-loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This award-winning, solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99 percent.

5. Canadian Made

The LOTUS Canadian Birch sheet set are made from Canadian Birch which is grown in Quebec. The LOTUS Birch sheets use eco-friendly birch fibres from locally grown renewable birch trees. The sheets are proudly spun, sewn and packaged in Canada.

Best Sheets for Hot Sleepers

There’s not much that’s worse than trying to get a comfortable night’s sleep when your bed feels like a furnace. But hot sleepers don’t have to book a flight to the Arctic to guarantee a good night’s sleep. You can sleep smart with LOTUS’s Birch sheets to help make your bed more comfortable and set yourself up for snoozing success. A set of Birch bed sheets can make a huge difference in the quality of your sleep – and the quality of your life. They will provide you with the right level of softness, moisture wicking, breathability, and stretch to make sure you stay comfortable, no matter the temperature.

When you order a set of sheets from LOTUS, you get a flat sheet and fitted sheet. Queen, King, or Cal King set of sheets comes with two pillow cases.
