    hi, i have fibromyalgia, but i also have ulticara, eczema and asthma. Anyhow, i'd like some ideas for bedding. ive tried the duvets, most seem to be made of polyester and even the 4 tog make me hot. are blankets better, and if so what material.

    be grateful for some suggestions

    cheers

    Hi,
    I would suggest organic cotton, silk or wool. Cost a little bit, but those are natural fibers and they use only natural plant dyes so body doesn't react to the dyes. Natural fibers wickaway perspiation. This is a case of you get what you pay for.

    Hope you find what works for you.
    Take care,
    kbak

    I've have been sensitive to artificial fabrics and down since I was a kid. I stick with cotton sheets- over 400 thread count, preferably 600. Costco has some good sets at a good price. Same with blankets- I buy the cotton woven ones. During winter I use more than one.

    plastic bags that blankets come in can cause a horrible smell. I always have to take anything like that outside in the garage to air out. And, then plan to wash them a couple of times. I no longer use fabric softner but I use a cup of white vinegar in the rinse water and that helps to take out any weird smells.
