How to Get a Good Night's Sleep on a Boat: Part 4



Temperature Tricks


Just like at home, keeping yourself at the perfect temperature can be a struggle. We have all been there with the heating on low, 12 blankets on the bed, a hot water bottle and 1 foot sticking out the covers trying to find the perfect balance. Whether it’s keeping yourself cool in summer or warm in winter, finding the right tools for the job can be a momentous task. Your core body temperature needs to drop by 0.5 -1 degrees when you sleep and so being too hot can prevent you from falling asleep easily. Equally, you don’t want to get too cold as this can prevent you from staying in a deep sleep too. We have come up with a short list of temperature regulating treats to help you sleep better, below:


  1. ActiveCool Mattress/ Topper Fabric; this fabric is made with heat conducting fibres which actively conduct your body heat away from you. The fibres lower your body temperature by 0.5-1 degree Celsius which is the optimum for getting into a deep sleep state. By lowering your body temperature and keeping it there, it helps you to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer and keep you in a deep sleep overnight. You will no longer wake up hot and sweaty at 2am but rather sleep right through. 
  2. Quilted Wycombe Mattress/ Topper Covers; this fabric is a wonderful domestic style cover which fits your Mattress or Topper and is fully removable and washable. Its Quilted layers mean that it helps to insulate you in winter and retain the warm air to help keep you warm and snug. But due to the breathability of its layers, it also removes humid air from your body preventing you from overheating during the night. 
  3. Quilted Mattress Protectors; these work in the same way as the Quilted Wycombe covers. They remove humid air from the bed but retain warm air to help keep you at the perfect temperature whilst also adding a layer of comfort to your Mattress. 
  4. Hollowfibre Duvets; all our shaped duvets are made with a hollowfibre filling to help keep them fresh for longer. Unlike natural fibre duvets which degrade and are made musty by the moisture in the air whilst on the water, hollowfibre doesn’t deteriorate and so stays fresh and snuggly for longer. This helps to keep you comfortable in bed, and with all our shaped duvets available in 3 togs for any temperature, you can sleep happy no matter the weather. The specially shaped duvets also mean that you don’t have layers of material bunched up at your feet meaning you get too hot, but rather sleep under one layer as you would at home. 


Look no further for a great night’s sleep and deck out your cabin with our temperature regulating treats, to help you drift off as you have always wanted!
