Does anyone else get the very best REM sleep when the temps outside are barely breaking out of the twenties, as opposed to those sweltering summer nights when there's a different kind of energetic static in the air? Well, you wouldn't be alone if the answer is an abrupt 'yes'. The warmth that envelopes our living spaces and bodies these cold winter months, radiating out from New York's finest prewar pipes and those more modern contraptions we must pay for makes our eyes heavy and depletes any lasting energy. Especially when the days are fleeting and darkness is that last guest that just won't leave. Our beds become our sanctuaries, a place that's never been harder to escape. This is exactly why, if you haven't already, it's perfectly plausible to treat yourself to a set of glorious, magnificently-cozy sheets and linens, to help melt away any guilt accumulated from spending more of your time horizontal, while aiding in that much needed sweet slumber our bodies so desperately need this season from the daily battle of fighting for warmth.
We've happily shared some of our favorite companies and brands that specialize in all of those things that make hitting the sheets that much more desirable. Sorry, folks, we're only offering threads here. As always, all of these products are also made and manufactured in the USA.
