Earthing Sheet Fabric and What You Need to Know

There are several choices in earthing sheets from different earthing sheet fabrics.
It is important to know what the differences are to make a good decision what earthing sheet you want to buy.

The main advantages of the new Silver Undersheet compared to regular earthing sheets are:

  • contains 15 - 30 times more high quality silver fibre
  • stronger antibacterial activity  
  • specialy designed for much better longevity
  • can be put under your own favorite fitted sheet, so also less wear and tear
  • less washing means longer lifespan of your sheet
  • 2 year warranty




What is important if you are looking for a long-lasting and reliable earthing product:

  • How earthing sheet fabric is made
  • How much silver thread is used
  • What factors influence longevity
  • Why a warranty is important


How Earthing Sheet Fabric is Made

Earthing fabric is made by weaving silver coated fibres with other fibres, such as cotton, polyester, or in our case Tencel. We chose Tencel for its strength and award winning environmentally friendly production process.
Silver fibre is a conductive fibre and conducts free electrons from the earth to our body.

Silver fibre has the advantage of superior conductive qualities for earthing, plus antibacterial qualities for hygiene.
The main weakness of silver coated fibre is it is delicate and easily damaged by sulphur in sweat and the myriad of ingredients in creams & lotions. These can damage (oxidise) the silver by weakening or destroying its conductivity and earthing effectiveness.

Silver fibre is made by adhering 99.9% pure silver to a nylon fibre core. The technical name for this is ‘silver coated fibre’.
The silver thread in our sheets is manufactured in France with 99,99% pure silver of the highest quality and is specially treated against oxidising for a longer lifespan.
Tencel, a fibre manufactured in Austria from sustainably grown eucalyptus, is one of the most environmentally friendly threads available and it's also very strong, soft as silk, cool as linen, warm as wool and even better moisture absorping than cotton.
 

The amount of silver thread 

The main difference with the standard earthing sheets is the amount of silver thread used in the sheets.
Our products are made with silver coated fibre and Tencel in 50 / 50 proportions.
Standard earthing sheets that you have to sleep directly on are made from 95%-97% cotton and 3%-5% silver coated fibre. You can see the silver within the distinctive criss-cross or grid pattern, 7 by 25 mm., if you look very closely.
If we take into account about 20% extra fibre for the stitching, it is easily calculate the amount of silver thread used per square meter: about 225 meter.
See the picture above for the difference.

Every single thread of Tencel in our fabric, with a thread count of 400, has silver coated fibre twisted around it.
Every square meter of our custom fabric contains over 7,500 metres (7.5 kilometres) of silver coated fibre.
This gives for our 4 sizes silver undersheets the following:

Bed Size Silver Thread in Standard Earthing Sheets Silver Thread in Earthing Nederland Silver Undersheets
Universal (100x200) 450 meters 15,000 metres
140x200 630 meters 21,000 meters
160x200 720 meters 24,000 meters
180x210 850 meters 28,350 meters

Longevity

As we said before, the main weakness of silver coated fibre is it is delicate and easily damaged by sulphur in sweat and the myriad of ingredients in creams & lotions.
Sulphur is the one substance that damages (oxidises) silver so after some time the silver threads have built up a black layer of oxide and the sheet is no longer functional for earthing.
Also ingredients in creams & lotions can damage the silver by weakening or destroying its conductivity and earthing effectiveness.We made it our mission to combat this.

Here is how we do it:

  • Quality of the conductive fibre. Our silver coated fibre is of the highest quality from France. It is finished with a German organic non toxic anti-oxidising agent to ensure a longer effective earthing life and more resilience against damage from oxidisation.
  • Undersheet design. Placing your earthing sheet under your existing fitted sheet shields the delicate silver from sulphur in sweat. An undersheet also requires less washing, which in turn means less wear.
  • Quantity of the conductive fibre. Our undersheet contains 20 times or more the amount of silver fibre than regular earthing sheets. That is why you can use it as an undersheet.
Because of the reasons above we can give a 2-year warranty on the effective earthing life of our undersheets!

Why warranty is important

Earthing sheets are not like regular cotton sheets. A regular bed sheet will last for years before it develops obvious signs of wear such as holes. 
Earthing sheets only last as long as they remain conductive.
If conductivity fails, you have an expensive earthing sheet that no longer works for earthing.
This can happen within a year with no visible signs, even when you care for them properly.
Fortunately, you can easily test the conductivity of your earthing sheet with a product tester

Many things can cause a loss of conductivity such as sulphur in everyday sweat to incorrect washing. This is just one reason why it is important to choose a high-quality product that is designed to last and is backed by a warranty on its effective life.

We are proud to offer high quality silver undersheets that will last a long time. That is why we have decided to use the very best materials. We give you a full 2 year warranty on our silver underheets on the condition that our care instructions have been followed. The warranty covers any manufacturing defects and the function of your sheet! 
The warranty does not cover discoloring of the silver threads as it is a natural process and is not affecting the function of your silver undersheet.
If you sweat heavily during the night, we recommend that you put the silver undersheet under two bottom sheets.

If you find that daily earthing improves your arthritic pain, autoimmune condition, sleep or circulation, you may also find that the benefits of earthing can decrease or even stop if your earthing sheet stops working.

That’s because earthing is not a cure. It is a lifestyle practice for optimal health.
