What Fabrics Are Bedsheets Made Of?

What fabrics are bedsheets made of?


Bed sheets can be made from cotton, cotton is one of the most common fabrics used in bedsheets and can be found anywhere. They are comfortable and breathable and they are great for sensitive skin. They are durable and can be used by both children and adults, they are also soft and lightweight. They are easy to wash and are washing machine friendly.


Linen is made from the fibres of flax plants, they can be used to make bed sheets, they are suitable for those who have sensitive skin and they are anti-allergenic, they are also breathable and can regulate your body temperature. Linen bed sheets help with keeping warm in the winter and cool in the summer. However, after a few washes, the material can decay and start to feel rough. They need to be replaced every 1-3 years and because the thread count is higher, linen sheets are more expensive than expected.


Silk is made from silkworms. Bed sheets can be made up of silk materials, silk helps the skin retain moisture and it is less likely to wrinkle up. Silk sheets are breathable and can regulate body temperature, they are also hypoallergenic, preventing any skin irritation, silk can be expensive and it is also very delicate and hard to take care of, the colour can fade in direct sunlight and silk tends to feel cold.


Bed sheets can also be made of satin, satin bed sheets are great for summer as they do not tend to stick to your skin. They aren’t overly damp or warm and they glide against your skin softly. They offer the right amount of coverage without adding heat, they are accommodating to sensitive skin however they can be expensive and not appropriate for winter and cold weather. Satin sheets are very slippery and so they tend to slide around and not stay in one place.


Bedsheets can be made up of microfibers they are strong and durable they are lightweight and breathable and they are also hypoallergenic They are soft and come in different colours however microfiber bed sheets can trap heat and create a lot of heat, which isn’t beneficial to hot sleepers.
