A good night’s sleep is incredibly essential for your overall health and one of the ways to achieve this is sliding into a good and comfortable set of fitted bed sheets at the end of a long day.
If you’ve ever spent a night in a luxury hotel bed, then you know exactly how it feels. It’s one of the greatest pleasures in life.
We spend almost a third of our lives between our sheets, and so luxury bed linen can be really rewarding.
But let’s face it, choosing the best sheets can be an overwhelming and difficult task. Fortunately, we’ve made the processes a lot easier for you, and this is how to go about it.
Deciding on the type of fabric for your bed linen can be difficult customers are spoilt for choice when it comes to bed sheet materials.
What Are The Most Popular Bedding Fabrics:
If you live in a cold climate region, then silk sheets might be an excellent option as it traps and contains a good amount of warmth. Soothing and luxurious, silk is gentle and comfortable on the skin. The only downside with silk luxury bedding though is that, you’ll either need to purchase a dry cleaner or prepare yourself for a dry cleaning service to keep sheets always functional and in good quality.
First off, linen offers a light massaging effect. Also, it is stronger than cotton fabric. This material is more ideal for hotter climates than the cooler ones, as it has high heat conductivity and permeability properties. Unfortunately though, bed linen is prone to wrinkles.
·Cotton and polyester
Polyester is often blended with cotton fibers to make a more affordable fabric, which is both breathable and sweat resistant. You can get nice looking bed sheets of any color and design; however, they don’t feel as great on the skin.
Egyptian is the basically the gold standard when it comes luxury bedding fabrics. Unlike the normal cotton varieties, the authentic Egyptian cotton is a lot softer. However, the bed sheets come at a price, as they tend to have higher thread counts.
Just as with Egyptian cotton, Pima cotton also offers exceptional quality. They are both classified as extra-long staple cotton, producing a luxuriously and incredibly stronger soft fabric that’s resistant to tearing, fraying, wrinkling, pilling, and fading. Weave method
·Muslin and/ or percale
Percale is finer than muslin, and these bed linens can easily be differentiated using thread count. Percale has a thread count ranging from 180 to 300. Muslin, on the other hand, ranges from 140 to 180
·TShirt Bed Jersey Linen
Our TShirt Bedding is made from 100% cotton and woven instead of knitted, which gives it a real feel of 800 thread count. It helps you remain cool in the summer and warm in the winter months , as well as remaning crease free so no more ironing your bedding
You could also opt for the sateen, flannel, Oxford, or jersey knit. Sateen is silkier, flannel is the warmest, jersey knit is stretchy, and Oxford is heavier. Don’t ignore the thread counts! We’ve mentioned thread counts a couple of times, but what exactly does the term mean?
Well, simply put, it is the number of threads that are woven together in order to create one square inch of fabric. This one of the easy way to measure sheet quality, as higher thread counts indicate higher quality. More threads also mean bed linen that’s softer on your skin.
