As the body's metabolism works throughout the night, perspiration is released as water vapor. Synthetic bedding and foam in mattresses trap and hold this moisture because air can't circulate. As body heat and moisture build up, your heart rate increases, which elevates blood pressure and causes shallower sleep. At a time when you should be resting, your heart isn't. You may awaken in a sweat, unable to return to sleep, or you may wake up in the morning feeling like you didn't get enough sleep. You didn’t; you lacked the deeper delta sleep cycle that contributes to good health.
Humidity is Linked to Allergies
Because synthetic bedding environments are more humid and can take a long time to dry out, they provide the perfect climate for mold, mildew, and dust mites to thrive, all of which affect breathing and allergies.
The European Sleep Works Solution
Our system components reduce humidity. Mattress covers are 100% cotton with a highly breathable lining of pure, lightweight wool. Wool conducts moisture away from the body, allows air to circulate, and evaporates water vapor. And our coils provide constant airflow. Together, these components help regulate sleep temperature for deeper, healthier, and drier sleep.
