Which fabric bedsheet is best?
Finding which fabric is best for your bed sheets depends on what you want and need from the sheets. For example, if you’re a hot sleeper you would prefer a cotton bedsheet however if you are a cold sleeper, you may want a different material such as flannel or linen.
Some of the benefits of cotton bedsheets are that cotton is a very common material, it is used for clothing and bed sheets, cotton is breathable and removes stains easily and cotton is durable and tends to soften up in time. They are also affordable yet still hold great quality.
Silk bed sheets are made by silkworms, and they are delicate, they can be very expensive and it can be high maintenance when cleaning. Silk bed sheets are naturally hypoallergenic and have a cooling feel to them, they also have a luxurious feel and look to them.
Polyester bedsheets can be soft, and they are wrinkle-free, they are affordable and can be found at any store. However, polyester absorbs oils and grease which makes it difficult to remove stains.
Satin bed sheets are an alternative to silk bed sheets, they come in many colours and have the same soft and cooling feel as silk bedsheets, satin bedsheets are more affordable and can be found easily in stores and online.
Bamboo sheets are environmentally friendly, they are easily found and are softer than other materials such as linen and polyester, bamboo bed sheets are durable, breathable and hypoallergenic.
Linen bed sheets are airy and breathable which is great for hot sleepers, it is great for those who suffer from allergies as they are hypoallergenic. However, linen sheets have a stiff feel but can loosen up in the washing machine.
