There are quilts with a cotton shell cover and those with other cooling materials such as Tencel. If you are prone to catching a cold, opt for cotton quilts which are more cozy and snug. For warm sleepers, cooling materials like Tencel will better regulate your body surface temperature by dissipating heat more effectively.


Pillows are an important part of your bedding and greatly influence your sleep quality. There are many types of pillows available, from plush to firm ones, contour and memory foam ones.
