The choice of the colour or pattern of the bed linen is mainly based on individual tastes. However, when it comes to the subject matter, we would tend to get lost because there are many choices. Although the feel of the touch is an indicator of quality and comfort of use, durability and resistance to washing are not necessarily perceptible on first contact. In order to make the right choice and to benefit from top-of-the-range bed linen and a good night's sleep, let's take a look at the characteristics of the different materials dedicated to bed linen.
The classic materials used in bed linen are cotton, linen and satin. Cotton is a natural textile fibre. This material is widely used in bed linen and clothing but also as summer bed linen. Soft and light, a tight weave guarantees the longevity of cotton bed linen. Flax is also a natural material that has been used for a long time in the textile industry. Although difficult to iron, linen fabric softens with each wash. Its main advantage is its ability to absorb moisture, which makes it ideal for the summer season. Cotton satin is woven with very fine cotton threads. Matt on one side and shiny on the other, it is generally used for adult bed linen.
The ideal material for bed linen
Cotton percale is made from long combed and finely woven cotton fibres. This manufacturing technique gives a certain resistance to the fabric and makes it soft and silky to the touch. All these qualities led the brand Julie Lavarièreto opt for this top-of-the-range material for the elaboration of bed linen. Indeed, combined with a touch of artistic creativity, the bed linen becomes a work of art that is pleasant to the sight and touch. In addition, the matte appearance of the fabric makes you want to snuggle in. Finally, as this material is smooth, it is easy to iron and goes through the washing machine without any problem.
Other bed linen materials
The subjects we are going to discuss here are not strictly speaking new. These are rather the little-known materials that are also used for bed linen. The half-breed, for example, is a combination of linen and cotton. The fabric made from this material is pleasant to the touch and easy to wash (60° max). The fabric made with bamboo viscose is also easy to wash and dries quickly. Flannel, on the other hand, is a soft fabric, recommended for the winter season. Indeed, its fluffy effect allows a good warmth for its users.
In conclusion, the best material to adopt for bed linen is one that combines softness and resistance. Cotton percale combines all the essential qualities for a pleasant sleep. You can count on Julie Lavarièreto make an authentic bed linen set with a refined and elegant design.
