What makes for the best winter pajamas?

Ever wondered what to look for in a winter pajamas? You want to stay warm but you don’t want to overheat during the night. Often we are cold as we go to bed but we risk overheating during the night if we are wearing sleepwear that isn’t supremely breathable. Did you know that our homes are 5 C warmer than 20 years ago? Central heating and better insulation has made for more comfortable days but sometimes we can be too warm at night. 

Winter pjs —what to look for

When deciding on the best women’s winter pajamas or men’s winter pajamas there are a few different factor to look for:

  1. Breathable warmth: It’s easy to warm up but we want to make sure that we don’t overheat during the night. That can lead to us becoming sweaty and uncomfortable and will lower our sleep quality. By choosing a winter pjs that pair warmth with breathability you can sleep easy by keeping the ideal sleeping temperature.

  2. Moisture management: if you do overheat and start to sweat you want to make sure that your winter pjs don’t become wet and clammy. Merino wool pajamas naturally has a superior moisture management. Merino wool can absorb up to 35% of their weight in moisture without feeling wet to the touch so you don't need to worry about sweating while sleeping.

  3. Ultralight: you want to make sure that your sleepwear feels like a second skin and not a bulky suit. If the material is to heavy and bulky it risk bulging and becoming uncomfortable

  4. Super soft: for a really cozy warmth your favorite winter pjs should also be super soft. During the night the blood flow in our skin increases so we are especially sensitive to touch. That’s why the softest pajamas is the most comfortable pajamas.
  5. Warming design: look for cuffs and hems that hold in warmth rather than letting your warmth slip away.
