How to have a good night’s sleep

Do you wake up every morning feeling exhausted, groggy and grumpy?  Do you find it difficult to sleep at all? Maybe you toss and turn all night? Here are some quick and easy tips to help you get the best night’s rest you’ve had in years.

Keep a notebook by your bed

If you’ve got a lot on, have some important exams coming up or simply can’t ‘switch off’ for the night, try keeping a notebook on your bedside table or under your pillow. Having tomorrow’s tasks going round in your head will not help you drift off to the land of nod; so write down any thoughts that are keeping you awake. This way, you won’t forget next Tuesday’s important meeting or the dentist appointment at 3. With your mind able to relax, you’ll be snoozing in no time!

Welcome to our Baavet

Baavet has just been launched, a business setup and owned by Roger Payne who has a background in Sheep farming, health and making lovely cosy duvets. The business in Ireland is run by Tom from Kilcock, Co Meath and all the Wool in our Irish Baavets comes from Irish farms.

Sadly wool can no longer be processed commercially anywhere in Ireland in fact most Irish wool is exported direct to China, or shipped to the UK for processing and although we have a Baavet HQ in Ireland we will be making the first Irish wool Baavets mainly in Snowdonia but we hope in the very near future to come across the Irish Sea and make them in Ireland.

I bought a Baavet at the All Ireland Ploughing Match and just wanted to let you know that my husband and I are enjoying sleeping under it very much.  It is truly self regulating.  My husband has been sleeping "covered up" for the first time in many weeks as he is so hot with covers on.
Thank you.
