Seersucker, percale or Renforcé – which sheets suit you? If you shrug now, it’s time for our little Sheets-ABC. We will explain here on the occasion of our current global bedding week the different materials for bed sheets. You will know immediately which material fits you best for your sleep.
Cotton blend is a blend of cotton and polyester. The fabric is light, smooth and temperature balancing. The handle is typically cotton. It is extremely easy to clean because it dries faster and it’s easier to iron than pure cotton bed sheets.
Beaver is similar to Renforcé in the basic structure, but it’s more popular due to its roughened fluffier surface, thus it’s warming and especially during the cold season. It consists of 100% cotton and its material is also absorbent and easy to clean.
Damask 100% cotton is a particularly high-quality version of the satin. For these Sheets, floral patterns are woven into the fabric, producing glossy and matte effects.
Flannel is thanks to the colored, finer yarns, the higher-quality alternative for the winter. This roughened 100% cotton material is very cuddly and ensures warmth. Also this material is absorbent and easy to clean thanks to the cotton.
Jersey is very elastic, very easy to clean and iron because of its knitted structure. The material is made of pure cotton and is particularly absorbent. Printed with various designs, Jersey is very popular to young customers.
Microfibre polyester sheets are thanks to its peach-like surface particularly pleasant on the skin. The relatively thin material regulates body temperature, and lets the colors glow. It’s also easy to clean and almost no ironing. In order to obtain the beneficial properties of microfiber, this material must not be washed with fabric softener.
Microfleece is characterized by a particularly fluffy surface and is ideal for cold winter nights. Made of a polyester microfiber, this material is quick-drying and ironing. This material also should be washed without fabric softener.
Percale is a lightweight fabric 100% cotton. Because of its smooth, fine surface, it is primarily used as a summer bedding. The material is absorbent and is printed or offered as a yarn dyed variant.
Renforcé consists of pure, fine-threaded cotton and is characterized by a smooth surface and high absorbency. This material is suitable for both warm and cool nights.
Satin is made from pure cotton yarn. The material has a glossy finish and a particularly smooth and uniform surface. The yarns are finer and denser than the fabric in Renforcé (see above).
Seersucker consists either of cotton, polyester or a mixture of the two fibers. This fabric is easy to clean due to its structure and doesn’t need ironing. Through the application of lye arise small “ventilation channels” that make the laundry to breath.
