Welcome to Great Sleep. We are a New Zealand bed linen company that aims to provide great quality sheet sets at a great price point. Our Lyocell Cotton sheet sets are a sustainably produced long lasting quality product that help provide that great sleep we all love.
Great Sleep is just that, we provide you with quality bedding and accessories for you to get a Great Sleep. We aren’t sleep scientists but like you we love that feeling of waking up after a great night’s sleep, refreshed, relaxed and ready to go.
We believe a lot of it comes down to the quality of the linen and bedding, and that is what we want to bring you. For starters, we import bedding that you don’t find in a retail provider at a price point you can afford.
It’s the extra little things that we offer. For example, our fitted sheets have an additional row of elastic. This ensures they tuck in well and stay tucked in all night.
Our flat sheets are slightly over-sized to help them stay tucked in as well. Great Sleep fitted sheets come with long side and short side labels that mean you don’t end up doing the sheet turn around more than once.
Our online store www.greatsleep.co.nz offers a range of high quality Lyocell Cotton sheets. (Lyocell is also known but the brand name Tencel). Lyocell is made with wood fibres sourced from sustainably-managed plantation forests.
That’s why it’s so popular with eco-aware people who insist on sustainability. It has an environmentally- responsible production process that involves transforming wood pulp into cellulosic fibres.
This is done in a way that that supports high resource efficiency and low environmental impact. Lyocell is as natural as cotton, but it’s made with a fraction of the resources. The process of making Lyocell requires much less energy and water than cotton. As a naturally derived fibre, Lyocell is also fully biodegradable, so you can compost any item made from Lyocell.
While the solvents used to turn the eucalyptus pulp into fibre are made using petrochemicals, a closed loop production process ensures the solvent is recycled time and time again to minimise harmful waste and emissions. Lenzing Group the manufacturer says their solvent recovery rate is 99%. Another benefit of Lyocell is how easily it can be dyed. Lyocell requires less dye product than cotton to become the desired colour, which keeps production costs lower and, again, uses fewer natural resources.
The sheets have a very fine micron or fibre diameter. This means Lyocell cotton sheets feel soft to touch and wick moisture away from your body – which helps you feel cool as it wicks sweat away from the body in hot conditions. The magic is the same principle makes the sheets feel warm in cool conditions as it wicks any moisture away from the body making you feel warmer.
