It’s clear that Americans love their pets. In fact, a survey by the American Pet Products Association reveals that more than two thirds of U.S. households own a pet. Still, the fact that you love your animal with all your heart doesn’t necessarily mean that you want to wake up covered in cat or dog hair. Fortunately, you don’t have to resign yourself to a bed full of fur. Choosing the right sheets can help keep your bed clean and your skin itch free. As a bonus, your beloved kitties and pups will get a better night’s sleep on the right bedding. At Pure Parima, we’re passionate about providing customers with 100% certified Egyptian cotton sheets to ensure every member of the family rests easier. Read on for our tips for selecting bedding that will keep you cozy and cool all night long.
Benefits of Egyptian Cotton for You (And Your Pet)
It’s no secret that Egyptian cotton has long been the gold standard when it comes to bedding. Strong and long-lasting, Egyptian cotton is known for maintaining its smooth texture after even hundreds of washes. Additionally, it resists tearing, pilling, and wrinkling, making it a stress-free option for busy families.
Additionally, Egyptian cotton bedding is a great option for pet owners. Because Egyptian cotton features extra-long staple cotton fibers that have been tightly woven together, there’s less space for dog and cat hair to cling. As a result, you’re less likely to go to sleep at night in a bed covered in fur.
The durability of Egyption cotton also makes it a logical choice for those who share the bed with a dog or cat. Because Egyptian cotton is highly durable, it’s less likely to get ripped by sharp animal claws. If your kitty or puppy is on the playful side, opting for Egyptian cotton could prevent you from having to replace your bedding on the regular.
Choose the Right Weave
Just because you love your pets doesn’t mean you want to sleep in a bed of animal hair. One of the best ways to limit the amount of hair and dander sticking to your sheets is to opt for a smoother, higher-quality weave. We’re big fans of percale and sateen Egyptian cotton sheets, both of which are known to repel pet hair. As a bonus, these sheets are easy to clean, so you can simply throw them in the washer and dryer when necessary. The durability of Egyptian cotton makes it an especially good choice for allergy sufferers who may want to launder their sheets more frequently.
Match Your Sheets to Your Pet
Of course, no bedding is going to repel all your pet’s fur. The simple fact is that cats and dogs shed, and animal hair is always going to be present in your life. To reduce the appearance of pet hair, consider matching your sheets to your furry family member.
For example, if you own a fluffy white cat, then it makes sense to choose white or ivory sheets and duvet covers. On the other hand, charcoal or carbon-colored sheets may be better for hiding hairs from your black lab. If you own more than one pet or one featuring multi-colored fur, you might have to settle for choosing higher-quality sheets that will hold up to regular washing!
Keep Fluffy and Fido Cool
It’s not just humans who tend to overheat while we sleep. Cats and dogs can also get hot on summer nights. If you don’t want to spend a bundle on air conditioning, think about swapping out your lower-grade sheets for a set made from 100 percent Egyptian cotton. Manufactured from extra-long staple fibers hand picked in the Nile River Valley, this material is both breathable and moisture wicking. Because heat can pass through this lightweight fabric, you don’t have to worry about waking up with your clothes and skin damp with sweat.
In particular, Egyptian cotton is ideal for humans (and pets) who suffer from sensitive skin. Because you aren’t perspiring in the night, the skin is less likely to become itchy or irritated. This cooling effect is just one of the many reasons that selective customers consistently choose 100 percent Egyptian cotton sheets over other options on the market.
