Why Do Bedsheets Bobble?

Why do bedsheets bobble?

The main reason bed sheets bobble is because they are constantly being used and washed. Similarly to any other item in your house, bed linens also suffer wear and tear and eventually become worn out and need to be replaced.

The main cause of bobbly bed sheets is that the fibres that are in the bedding start to fray over time as they are being used and washed. The frayed ends in the sheets then become tangled with one another and that is what creates bobbly bed sheets. Obviously, you can’t just stop washing your bed sheets but there are steps you can take that will help you prevent or minimise bobbled bed sheets.

What material is your bedding made of?

The material your bed sheets are made of also affects how bobbly your bed sheets get. Materials such as wool or synthetics tend to become more bobbly over time. The fibres in wool can detangle over time which will help to minimise the bobbling, whereas synthetic fabrics generally won't as the fibres are strong.

How to stop your bedsheets from going bobbly?

The first step you can take to prevent your bedding from going bobbly is by purchasing the correct bedding. The best bedding is 100% Egyptian cotton. This material of bedding is regarded as the best choice because the fabric has less chance to bobble because of how long the fibres are. Because of this, the bedding will look newer for longer. Also, when you are purchasing bedding, you should look at the thread count in the bedding. The higher the thread count, the less chance there is for the bedding to become bobbly.

Washing your bed sheet inside out can also help to prevent bobbling. This is because it will protect it from high temperatures which could damage the fibres, causing bobbling. You could also purchase a laundry detergent that has enzymes as this will help prevent pilling when the bedding is being washed.
