INTRODUCING BAMBI’S NEW LUXURY TENCEL®, ALPACA & MEMORY FOAM PILLOW WELCOME TO A WORLD OF LUXURY Bambi’s new TENCEL®, Alpaca & Memory Foam Pillow provides the ultimate in luxury living. To craft this beautiful pillow, we started with an inner of high quality memory foam; infused this with gel crystals for cooling, and then added pincore holes for additional airflow. Next, we cocooned this shape-retaining memory foam with pure, soft Australian Alpaca so your head will feel like its sleeping on a cloud. After that, we covered it with 100% pure TENCEL® – perhaps the softest, most healthful, planet-friendly fabric available.

Now that winter is upon us, many of us are considering the best way to keep toasty warm in bed without spending a fortune on heating. Well, you might be surprised to learn that by far the most cost effective way of escaping the winter chill, and huge electricity bills, is by using an electric blanket. How much on average does it cost to run an Electric Blanket? Contrary to popular belief, an electric blanket costs almost nothing to run – in fact on average they cost approximately 4 cents per hour. This is because they are very effective at dispersing heat (through built in wires) and then trapping heat beneath the quilt. Most people who are regular users of electric blankets tend to switch their blanket on for about 30 minutes (on an average setting) before they get into bed. This makes the bed beautifully warm to get into. Once in, they often turn the electric blanket off, as the heat is trapped in the bed with nowhere to escape to and thus they are liable to stay warm for the remainder of the night. If you consider the cost of warming your bed like this, you are looking…
UNDERSTANDING THREAD COUNT (AND WHY, UNFORTUNATELY, HIGHER ISN’T BETTER) In recent years the term ‘thread-count’ has become synonymous with the process of buying bedding – in particular sheets, quilt covers, pillowcases etc. We’ve all been led to believe that the higher the thread count, the better the quality of the product. But is this really true – or is it a well executed marketing exercise?
This article, which was published recently, doesn’t surprise us here at Bambi. Wellbeing has long been associated with how long, and how well, we sleep. While Bambi make a whole range of sleep products that can assist with wellbeing, we wanted to highlight the one item that can really make a massive difference to a good night’s sleep… and that’s the humble pillow. It’s quite frightening how under-rated and misunderstood the pillow is. In fact, at Bambi, we don’t even look at them as being a pillow– we think of them as “a mattress for your head”.

Most people would probably agree that there are few things better than sinking into your bed at the end of a hard day. But have you ever wondered what might be in there with you? Well the chances are that these ugly little creatures – dust mites – will be snuggling down with you –and they will be there in their thousands, if not millions. What are they? The humble dust-mite is an arachnid and a relative of spiders and ticks. Without proper protection on your bed/pillows, there are liable to be between 100,000 and a million dust mites in your bed. Luckily 95% of them are dead. But the other 5% are alive and are happily procreating and defecating in your bedding before they too die. The most common dust mite in Australia is the Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus which is less than half a millimetre long. Feeding on dead skins cells, dust-mites living in your pillow and mattress have plenty to feed on – since the average person will lose nearly 1,000,000 skin cells in a 24 hour period. Dust-mites mate for 24 hours at a time and, in optimal conditions, live for about six weeks, with each mite producing…
Why do I need a Mattress Protector? As a general rule, if you have a mattress, you need a mattress protector. This is not only to protect it from stains, but also from dust mites, allergens, bacteria and mold. Also, regardless of the material, your mattress is made from, the most important factor is that your mattress should never come into contact with moisture. When moisture enters a mattress, mold and mildew can form, leading to the growth of nasty, and often harmful, bacteria. Unfortunately, many people are not aware that moisture is not only caused by spills and upsets but also occurs naturally in the body every night. In fact, on average, a person will lose almost ½ litre of fluid a night which soaks straight into the mattress. Naturally, when two people are sleeping, this goes up to nearly a litre – meaning your mattress is soaking up in excess of 350 litres of perspiration every year. In addition to this, a mattress protector will also guard against dust mites that flourish in mattresses. They thrive on shredded/dead skin – and considering we lose almost 600,000 particles of skin an hour, that’s a lot to flourish on.
We love this time of year here at Bambi, not only is the Central Coast a gorgeous place to be in the winter months but it is also our busiest time of year with production of winter quilts, electric blankets and all things snugly. After months of the warm weather it is always exciting to be dusting off the leather boots and be out showing customers our winter products.
