Bedding refers to the fabric items placed on a bed to cover it, to keep the occupants warm or cool and to provide decoration.

Other names for bedding include manchester, bedclothes, bed linen and bed wear.

Items of bedding include:

  • Blankets (woollen, cotton, synthetic blends, mohair, etc.)
  • Sheets (cotton, brushed cotton, polyester, etc.)
  • Duvet, doona, feather- or wool-filled quilts
  • Quilts
  • Pillows and pillowcases
  • Mattress protectors

Some forms of bedding are more suited to certain temperatures than others. For example, cotton sheets and cotton blankets are better for warm to hot weather, while duvets and wool blankets are better for cold weather.

Here is a list of things to consider when either making or purchasing bedding items:

  • The thread count of sheets
  • Ecological impact (organic cotton, soy, bamboo, etc.)
  • A healthy mattress (for example, without chemical treatment)
