What is a pillow sham?

A pillow sham is a decorative pillow case that can transform any normal-sized pillow into a stylish accessory for your bedding set. Pillow shams come in three traditional sizes: Standard Sham (26″ x 20″), King Sham (36″ x 20″), and Euro Sham (26″ x 26″). Unlike typical pillowcases, most pillow shams are open in the middle of the back with slightly overlapped fabric. However, some do have zippers to close them shut. You can usually find pillows sold in pairs made out of coordinating fabrics to match your duvet cover.

You can get by with just 4 hours sleep.

Recently, scientists discovered a gene that may explain why some people can get by with a fraction of the amount of sleep most of us need, however this is thought to apply to only around 2-3% of the population.

The rest of us need on average between 7-8 hours each night to stay fit, healthy and alert during the day.
