Tencel, The Unsung Hero We Never Thought We Needed For Better Sleep

22 April 2022

April to June have traditionally been the warmer months of the year in Singapore. For people who do not use an air-conditioner at home, sleeping at night can sometimes prove to be quite the uncomfortable experience - think warm backs and damp bed sheets. Fortunately there are products we can use to lower temperatures for a better sleep.

Tencel: Softer than silk, more absorbent than cotton 

The product, or rather material in question is Tencel, a form of rayon consisting of cellulose fibre extracted from eucalyptus trees. Tencel is very similar to many of the fabric materials we are familiar with, such as cotton, silk and linen. What sets Tencel apart is its superior absorbency - up to 50% more absorbent than cotton, and its longer wicking distance - basically the distance moisture travels in the fabric. This is the reason why certain fabric feels "airier", they help to move moisture away from your skin faster. Tencel is also much thinner than cotton, make it feel incredibly light and smooth to our skin.


Softer than Egyptian cotton and cooler than silk.

This brings us to bedsheets made from Tencel, and in particular, the premium bed linen bundle set from Heavenluxe, a Singapore luxury bed linen brand. Each set comes with one bed linen and two pillow cases, all from with their award-winning sheets made of 100% Austrian Tencel™ from Europe.

Coming from a luxury brand, it should not come as a surprise that Heavenluxe's customer service has consistently ranked at 5 stars. We think buying from a brand you know you can trust is an important considerations most people should make before any substantial outlay these days.


Be bothered by warm nights no more.

Austrian Tencel sheets may be expensive, but we think the benefits of a good night's rest far outweigh the cost of this one set, which at time of writing is $309. To make the deal even sweeter, you can get a further $50 off their Premium Bundle Set with a promo code from meREWARDS here.
