Gone are the days where buying sheets and bedding is easy. With the large selection of bedding supplies on the market, it can be daunting trying to decide which bed sheets and covers are the best choice for you. From traditional cotton sheets to bamboo sheets, it’s challenging trying to decide between synthetic and organic materials, as well as the ideal thread count. Before you start shopping for new sheets, comforters, and duvets, you should have an understanding of the various materials that bedding is made of. Let’s take a look at the different cotton fabric options below.
Cotton is the most popular fabric for sheets because it is incredibly durable, breathable, soft, easy to clean, and quite affordable. There are many different types of cotton sheets and fabrics to choose from, including:
- Organic Cotton – This type of cotton is the safest type from which to choose. It is an untreated cotton (free of dyes and pesticides), making it an ideal choice for people with allergies and chemical sensitivities.
- Egyptian Cotton – This is the most well-known form of cotton because it features extra-long fibers for an incredibly soft feel. This kind of cotton is often grown in the warm, dry climates of North Africa.
- Pima Cotton – Often grown in the southwest region of the United States, pima cotton features medium to extra long fibers. This cotton provides a wonderful softness with a natural sheen.
- Upland Cotton – Upland cotton is the type of cotton you’ll find in 100 percent cotton sheets. It has short fibers, meaning it’s not as soft, but these sheets are known to be fairly affordable.
