The Best Blankets, Bed Sheets and Pillows for a Cool Sleep
1 / 8
Cooling blankets in Canada
I’ve always been a hot sleeper—I’ve been shouting “Did somebody turn the aircon off?!” in a murderous rage since I was six years old. Now that I’ve become a Woman of a Certain Age And That Age is Definitely Not 23, my need for products that will keep me cooler at night has become a bit of an obsession.
When you sleep, your body temperature goes down a couple of degrees, but the heat that you let off often gets trapped in your mattress, pillows and bedding, which then slowly cooks you as if you were a sweaty little sous vide snack.
Here are some products that can help keep you cool. One caveat: sleep—or lack of it!—is the biggest factor that makes my life 1) suck or 2) not suck, so while some of these items are pricey, this is one area where I think spending a little more on quality goods is worth it.

Cooling Bed Sheets
Try: Casper Hyperlite Sheets
From $ 139, Casper
OK, when I heard about these sheets, I didn’t believe the hype. I’m generally of the opinion that most bed sheets are pretty much alike, but after trying these I can say with full authority that I BELIEVE.
Made with Tencel lyocell, a super soft synthetic fibre, and grid weave for maximum breathability, these sheets are so weirdly light it feels as if you’re sleeping under fairy wings. Now I don’t even bother with any of my other sheets—just wash this set and put it right back on the bed. Comes in Indigo, Dusty Rose, White, Grey and Fog Blue.
