COTTON

Cotton is the most commonly used fiber in bed linen. It is durable, comfortable, and easy to wash making it perfect for everyday use.

Cotton keeps the body cool in summer and warm in winter because it is a good conductor of heat.

Cotton is non-allergenic and, unlike synthetic fibers, cotton fiber is a natural product that contains no chemicals.

Cotton sheet sets hold up to 27 times their weight in water and become stronger when wet.

Poly Cotton

Polycotton blends integrate the strengths of cotton and polyester to create an eye-catching, comfortable, and durable material.

Poly cotton helps repel the moisture so that it doesn’t stick to your body. Additionly, this blend of cotton is not reliant on nature to grow, that’s why it is cheaper than pure cotton.

One of the key advantages of poly-cotton fabric is its durability. The polyester fibers add strength and resilience to the fabric, making it less prone to wrinkles, shrinking, and wear and tear compared to pure cotton fabrics. This durability makes poly-cotton an excellent choice for everyday use in clothing, bedding, and household linens.

Linen

Linen is a celluloid fiber derived from the stem of the flax plant or a fabric made from these fibers.

One of the defining features of linen is its natural coolness and absorbency. This makes linen garments and linens particularly suitable for warm climates or hot summer days, as they help keep the body cool and comfortable by wicking away moisture.

Linen’s color palette typically starts as an off-white shade, but its fibers readily accept dyes, allowing linen to be transformed into a wide array of vibrant colors.

Linen is a favorite among designers and consumers alike, offering endless possibilities for creative expression in clothing, home textiles, and decor.

As linen ages and is washed repeatedly, it becomes softer, smoother, and more supple, enhancing its comfort.

Flannelette

Flannelette, also known as flannel, is a soft and cozy fabric renowned for its warmth and comfort. It is typically made from cotton or a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers, such as polyester, that are brushed to create a fuzzy, plush texture on one or both sides of the fabric.

One of the distinguishing features of flannelette is its brushed surface, which gives it a slightly raised nap or pile. This nap traps warm air close to the body, making flannelette an excellent choice for cold-weather clothing, bedding, and linens. The brushing process not only enhances the fabric’s tactile appeal but also contributes to its ability to retain warmth without being heavy or bulky.

While flannelette is traditionally associated with winter and colder climates, it is also available in lighter weights and designs suitable for year-round wear.

Jacquard

Jacquard weave is a sophisticated technique used to create intricate patterns and designs on fabrics. Unlike standard weaving methods, Jacquard weaving involves individually controlling warp yarns, allowing for the creation of complex and detailed patterns. These patterns can range from subtle textures to elaborate motifs, adding a touch of opulence and grandeur to fabrics.

 

The Jacquard loom, which is used to weave Jacquard fabrics, is designed to handle the intricacies of this weaving process. It allows for precise control over each warp yarn, enabling weavers to produce richly textured and visually striking fabrics suitable for various applications.

Twill

Twill fabric is characterized by its heavier weight and structured form compared to regular cotton materials. This inherent weightiness contributes to the remarkable durability of Twill fabrics, making them a preferred choice for sturdy and long-lasting textiles.

 

One of the notable advantages of Twill fabric is its resistance to wrinkles and stains. The tight weave and sturdy construction of Twill fabrics make them less prone to creasing, making them suitable for garments and linens that require minimal maintenance and upkeep.
