Summer is just around the corner, and the temperature outside is definitely showing it!

Quick Look at Our Top 6 Picks

And although you may want to catch the rays outside, you don’t want to overheat while you’re trying to sleep at night.

Cool bed sheets are a staple during the summertime, and can enhance the quality of sleep you get during those hot months!

Not only are cool bed sheets great for the warmer part of the year, but they’re perfect for those hot sleepers that wake up in night sweats or have interruptive sleep because they overheat throughout the night.

Qualities of Cooling Bed Sheets

Cooler bed sheets have a couple of qualities in common that may help on your search for a cooler sleep at night.

  • Fabric: While looking for the best cooling bed sheets, most bed sheets are either made of bamboo (rayon) or microfiber. Lately microfiber bed sheets are increasing popularity, but they’re especially known for their moisture-wicking properties, which is great for those night sweaters. Bamboo sheets are also known for their silk-like feels cool to touch, and their breathability.
  • Texture: This can play an important role in keeping the temperature down. Sateen weaves bring a silk-like feeling to fabrics that feel cooler on the skin.
  • Weight: Look for a lighter sheet! Durability does not always go hand in hand with the weight of a sheet. Thinner sheets are a great option for summertime, or if you’re just looking to keep the temperature down so you can sleep through the night.

When you think of summer, you probably envision yourself lounging on the beach, enjoying the nice weather while you listen to the waves crashing.

Quick Look at Our Top 5 Picks

Yet, not every summer day is filled with clear blue skies, and visits to the beach. Some are filled with rain or heavy storms that turn into impromptu movie days.

Others may reach lower temperatures, towards you get to the end of summer. Not to mention, the days may be hot, but depending where you live, the nights can still get pretty chilly. And what can make your dreary summer days better? A comfy summer blanket.

We all tend to have quite the collection of winter blankets because with all the comfy fabrics and patterns, they’re hard to resist! But a search for a summer blanket?

Those are much harder to find. Plus, when you’re planning for summer, a beach blanket sounds more fun.

Yet, summer blankets can be extremely useful if you’re in a climate with weather that fluctuates, or you tend to spend a lot of summer nights outside when the temperature has dropped.

The best summer blankets have a couple of qualities to look for.

Regular Blanket vs Summer Blanket

First, you may be wondering how is a summer blanket any different from a regular blanket? Depending on the purpose of your blanket, there may not be a difference, but most likely your wool winter blanket wouldn’t help you in the summer heat.

A blanket for the summer is more equivalent to a throw blanket you’d keep on your couch. Their purpose is to add a layer of warmth, just like wearing a light sweater.

Usually they tend to be more loose knits, giving breathability, and they’re more lightweight to adhere to the warmer climate. Let’s get a little more in depth.

Qualities of a Summer Blanket

  • Lightweight: Even if it gets chilly during a summer day, you don’t want an extremely thick fabric. Look for fabrics that can be made into a thin blanket like cotton, polyester, or bamboo. A thinner blanket will be better suited for the season, and can always be layered with other blankets to provide more warmth.
  • Breathable: Finding a blanket that is made out of a breathable fabric will prevent trapping unnecessarily heat in the blanket with you, and overheating you. The goal of a great summer blanket is not to create a barrier between you and outside, but rather to add a layer of warmth. A breathable fabric give you the perfect balance. Look for cotton and bamboo fabrics!
  • Cool: This may seem obvious, but looking for blankets with cooling properties is great for those that are looking to use their summer blankets inside. If you are looking for a blanket to replace your thick comforter or quilt, or are a hot sleeper, blankets made of bamboo or specifically engineered fabrics to feel cooler will help combat heat.
  • Available in different sizes: A blanket for the summer could mean anything! Whether you’re using it on your bed, on the couch, outdoors, or in the car, there are many different purposes a summer blanket can provide. Make sure that when you’re searching for a blanket, you’re looking for the correct size, or you’re looking at blankets that are available in many different sizes!
