You spend half of your life in pajamas, and they are essential for a restful sleep. Therefore you need a pair that is comfortable, breathable, and soft.
Most pajamas on the market are produced either from conventional cotton or synthetic material. Unfortunately, both are environmentally damaging to produce, with many synthetic fibers making you sweat and overheat at night.
Organic cotton is a great natural fiber, as it is grown without harmful pesticides and chemicals and uses up to 80% less water to produce (than conventional cotton). In addition, organic cotton is naturally soft, hypoallergenic, and great for sensitive skin, making it the ideal fabric for a pair of cozy PJs.
We have selected the best sustainable and organic pajamas in this list, perfect for sweet dreams.
