Being that we spend about one-third of our lives asleep, it makes sense to invest in a bedding that's not only comfortable but stands the test of time. But with so many options out there — thread count, fabric make-up, patterns, solids — the decision process can be overwhelming. Today, I will share with you a strategy for selecting super-full and super-practical bedding products, and teach you how to choose the right bedding products correctly!
1. The feeling of bedding
Along with your duvet, pillow and mattress, the bed linen that you choose will have a big impact on how your bed feels and how you sleep. As your sheets, duvet cover and pillowcase are against your skin every night, it’s important to think about what kind of bed linen will give you the best night's sleep. There are, after all, many bed linen types. Different fabrics and weaves have different characteristics and therefore have a different feel. The best bed linen is made with the highest quality natural materials and woven to the highest standards. Decide whether you like your bedding to feel smooth and silky, cool and crisp, or cozy and warm. This will help you choose which bed linen fabric and weave will suit you best.
2. Choose the right fabric
If you like the texture of silk and have enough budget, silk is the best choice; in terms of cost performance, pure cotton is the best choice, and among pure cotton, long-staple cotton is the best; polyester is not recommended
3. Correctly choose the appropriate count
For the same fabric, the higher the count, the finer the yarn, and the thinner the woven fabric, the more delicate and soft the fabric feels, and the better the sleep experience. If you are looking for cost-effectiveness, choose 40. If you are looking for quality and sleep experience, it is recommended to buy 60 branches and above.
4. How to choose plain weave, twill weave and satin weave
When you choose, you mainly consider your own needs. If you like light, breathable, low-cost and durable, choose plain weave; if you like durable, thick and cost-effective, choose twill weave; if you pursue high-end quality, you can choose satin.
5. Which is better, reactive printing or pigment printing
The pigment printing process is simple, low cost, poor color fastness, wash once old, unhealthy and environmentally friendly, try not to buy, preferred reactive printing.
