How to choose bedding for sensitive skin

If you struggle with skin allergies like eczema or dermatitis, you know that quality sheets are not just a luxury, but a requirement if you want to sleep well at night. It can even be a challenge to find bedding that doesn't irritate your skin.

Lyocell bedding is an option if you've grown frustrated with ordinary cotton sheets. This fabric is made through sustainable and green farming methods and is made from wood pulp and non-toxic solvents. With Lyocell bedding, you can finally find those itch-free nights you've been looking for.

There are many reasons to choose Lyocell bedding whether you have sensitive skin or not, especially since it -

Is softer than cotton sheets

You might not think that a fabric woven from wood pulp could produce such a soft and supple fibre. The softness of Lyocell bedding is visible in its sheen and flexible flow. It doesn't irritate rashes and glides easily over the skin without being slippery.


Unlike the sticky tightness of cotton fibres on warm nights, Lyocell fibres release moisture easily. The sheet does not cling to the skin and allows the skin easy access to fresh air outside the sheet. The solvent used to create the fibres is also non-toxic and does not impede breathability.

Prevents bacterial growth

Lyocell bed linen is 50% better at absorbing moisture than cotton bed linen. This prevents the space under the sheets from becoming a perfectly moist environment for bacteria, which is the case with cotton sheets. Instead, Lyocell bed linen absorbs moisture and releases it outside. This gives your skin a better chance to heal at night, instead of becoming further irritated.

Has thermal regulation

Waking up hot and sweaty is not only frustrating but sometimes painful. Lyocell bedding can keep your body cool and dry throughout the night. The increased moisture absorption helps your body regulate your natural temperature.

Benefits for the environment

This isn't a direct benefit for people with skin allergies, but it's definitely a benefit and another reason to choose Lyocell-based bedding. These fibres come from sustainably managed forests with fast-growing trees. It may seem like harvesting trees is worse for the environment than cotton, but Lyocell fabric actually requires much less water than an equal amount of cotton fabric and is much more environmentally friendly.

If you're tired - tired of restless nights and tired of itchy cotton sheets - Lyocell bedding can be a great solution. It may not be the bedding that everyone on the block is using (yet), but more often than not it's worth going outside of convention and trying something new.

You can find beautiful, silky bedding made from Lyocell at HIT THE HAY. Supporting companies like HIT THE HAY is one way to promote sustainable agriculture. Above all, though, they're a way to finally get back those restful nights of long sleep and soothing skin.
