What the Hygge?: How to make cozy like the Danes

With six new books out this winter covering the topic of ‘hygge‘, it’s no wonder everyone is talking about it. But do we really know what this Danish word means, and how do we do it? Here’s where we come in. We thought we’d give you a quick explanation of hygge, and some simple ideas for how to bring it into your home, whether you live in Scandinavia or Seattle.

The word ‘hygge’ doesn’t have a literal translation, which is why it has proven tricky to explain to non-Scandi folk. It’s best characterised by feelings and mood rather than a direct object: think coziness, warmth, contentment and you’ll be pretty close. Hygge is something that we can all attain, regardless of wealth or background. It embraces the simple, gentle things in life and encourages us to notice with full intent the things we are surrounded with. It is about finding pleasure in the presence of soothing things, about connection with others, belonging and ritual.

Check Your Knowledge about the Pros of Using Linen Sheets

Are you still sleeping in cotton bedding and wondering why on earth people choose linen sheets over the cotton ones? Then maybe it is about time you check your knowledge about linen and find out all the pros of using linen sheets.

Pros of Linen Sheets :

To start with, linen bedding is great for your health. It warms up in the winter and cools in the summer, so it relieves the skin of excessive heat when body temperature rises and warms you up if you are cold. Resting on linen sheets will ease the pain and discomfort caused by sunburns, and daily contact with linen can reduce sensitivity to cold, flu and other diseases. Recent studies have also demonstrated that female fertility is increased with the use of pure linen sheets. Linen is hypoallergenic – it does not cause allergies, which means that people with allergies or sensitive skin will not need to worry about having an allergic reaction when touching the fabric or sleeping on linen sheets. Organic linen fabric is made from materials that are not exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides, so the material is considered healthy. Linen has a light massaging effect because of the tiny breaks throughout the fabric. These breaks also stimulate our skin, which stimulates blood flow and promotes relaxation. Linen has been shown to promote deep and relaxing sleep. A recent study found that you fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood after sleeping on linen sheeting.

Linen Sheets – Excellent Investment

Furthermore, linen is an excellent investment – it is shown to last up to 20 years. Pure linen also destroys bad odors, since it is highly breathable, has high moisture absorbency and remains cool. Organic linen fabric sheets also absorb moisture more efficiently than synthetic materials. It is not only ecologically friendly, it is also antistatic – it remains cleaner for longer periods of time, doesn’t cling to the body, and isn’t easily wrinkled. Linen is 30% stronger than cotton. It is a fabric that becomes softer after every wash.

Differences of Flat and Fitted Bed Sheets

Nowadays flat sheets and fitted bed sheets are used for the same purpose – to protect the mattress and make smooth surface for lying. The owner of the bed linen has to decide if the bed sheet has to pull snugly over the mattress, so that it cannot be easily pulled off, or it has to fold easily and neatly when not in use – as these are the main differences of these bedding linen pieces.

Flat Sheets

But those seeking truly luxurious sleeping experience and enjoying a traditional way of using bed linen, have to know what flat sheets and fitted sheets were originally used for (and are used, for that matter).
