Walter Bridgham of Lenzing Fibers the makers of TENCEL™ branded fibers returned to the #HipNJ studio to teach Maria Falzo how to dress a bed based on the time of year and maintaining comfort.
TENCEL™ branded fibers are eco-friendly biodegradable fibers, which are then used to create clothing, footwear, bed linens, towels, etc. TENCEL™ fibers are soft, sturdy and breathable. Walter brought several bed Linen pieces that contain TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers into the studio to demonstrate how to make and adjust your bed for the four seasons.
When we sleep, our bodies create heat and humidity moisture. Our bedding and mattresses can trap that heat & humidity, causing us to feel overheated. TENCEL™ branded fibers reduce that sweaty discomfort by absorbing humidity moisture and transferring heat away from our bodies. In the winter, you may want that extra body heat; but in the summer, you’ll want to reduce that heat.
Walter brought in a colorful duvet cover; a coverlet with loosely quilted and fluffy filling from Pottery Barn®; a soft cotton and TENCEL™ lyocell blended blanket from Home Depot® Home Decorators Collection® ; and some 100% TENCEL™ Lyocell 600 thread count grey sheets by Brookstone® available at Bed Bath & Beyond®. All these pieces contain TENCEL™ lyocell fibers.
Walter explained how the duvet cover acts as extra protection for the comforter; he also noted how the cover’s positions during sleep can affect the entrapment or the release of heat. If you want to trap the heat to stay warm during the fall or winter seasons, you should layer the cover on top of your comforter. If you want to release that heat and stay cool during the spring and summer seasons, you should fold the cover and leave it at the foot of your bed.
