We all know how we feel after a good night’s rest: Alert. Invigorated. Ready for whatever the day brings. But what might surprise you is the impact your bedding can have on your quality of sleep. The right bed linens can affect everything from body temperature to skin health—not to mention create an inviting, comfy refuge we want to return to every night.
So how do you choose? Your best bet is to turn to a company you trust.
For more than 27 years, Norwex has been producing products geared toward healthy living. And when it comes to bedding, you can rest assured that our microfiber collection checks all the boxes. It’s soft to the touch, easy to care for and made to last. But the real game-changer is the exclusive BacLock® technology which, among its many benefits, helps to reduce the growth of acne-causing bacteria within the cloth.*
Here are five reasons why you’ll want to make Norwex Microfiber your bedding of choice.
Advanced antimicrobial technology reduces the growth of bacteria within the cloth.
BacLock is our micro silver antibacterial agent embedded in the cloth that not only reduces the growth of more than 99% of the bacteria including that can cause acne—it actually inhibits future bacterial growth caused by everyday oil, dirt, germs and dead skin cells. At the same time, this innovative technology provides continuous protection against microbes, odor and mildew.
Microfiber is also an ideal choice for allergy sufferers, since it resists harboring allergens like dust and pet hair.
Microfiber sheets can improve sleep.
Think about curling up in a bed of sumptuously soft sheets. It can’t help but lull you into a restful, restorative slumber. It all comes down to the comfort factor. Extra-dense, super-fine fibers are what give microfiber its plush, satiny feel.
Ideal for both hot and cool sleepers. Hot sleepers take note: Our breathable Microfiber helps reduce sweatiness. While its tightly woven fibers allow air to pass through the fabric, bonded threads prevent moisture from following suit.
On the other hand, microfiber sheets can also help keep you warm. Masses of microscopic fibers deter heat from escaping through the fabric, creating a cozy little cocoon.
Microfiber is easy to care for.
For starters, the power of BacLock works to keep bacterial odor, mold and mildew growth within these products at bay, so your linens stay fresher, longer.** When you do need to wash, simply pop them in the machine with one of Norwex’s highly concentrated laundry detergents for a conscious clean that’s free from harmful chemicals.
Yet another benefit: Microfiber dries quickly. We recommend using Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls, which naturally soften and help to reduce static and wrinkles. Try adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil to give bedding an alluring hint of natural fragrance.
It’s also easy on the budget.
In terms of durability, microfiber surpasses cotton, silk and linen, which makes it an excellent value. Our two-year warranty guarantees these vegan sheets and pillowcases won’t lose their softness, shape or appearance. An added bonus: Norwex offers special savings on Queen and King sheet sets.
Timeless, neutral shades enhance every décor.
Of course, you want bedding that looks as good as it feels. After all, what’s better at the end of the day than sinking into a beautifully made bed? Our Pillowcases feature two go-with-everything colorways: New this fall, grey is modern, stylish and extremely versatile. Or choose cloud, our fresh, airy white.
Deluxe detailing ups the design quotient. Our embroidered Safe Haven logo makes for an elegant accent. And both King cloud and standard grey pillowcases sport an envelope enclosure, creating a more finished appearance.

Fun facts about sleep and bedding
You spend more of your life sleeping than any other single activity.
Writer Charles Duhigg explains in his best selling book, The Power of Habit: “Making your bed every morning is correlated with better productivity, a greater sense of well-being, and stronger skills at sticking with a budget.
The perfect nap, according to NASA, lasts for 26 minutes.
Ideally, falling asleep should take 10 to 15 minutes. If it takes you less than five minutes to fall asleep at night, you’re probably sleep-deprived. Comfortable bedding can make it easier to fall—and stay—asleep.
While the brain sleeps, it clears out harmful toxins, a process that may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, according to researchers.
Studies show it that counting sheep won’t help you fall asleep. A better bet would be imagining something relaxing, such as a sooth beach or landscape.
