Once you know what season you’re shopping for and whether you’re hot or not, it’s time to decide on a fabric. Below are some materials to consider when shopping for bedding.
Pinpoint Oxford has finer yarn and is lighter than oxford fabric. It’s warmer and heavier than a poplin fabric and becomes softer with every wash. This makes it perfect for someone who isn’t too hot or too cold at night. It’s also perfect for someone who is looking for unique bedding because it is our contribution to the bedding industry.
Poplin is a smooth fabric that’s finer and lighter than an oxford and pinpoint oxford fabric. It’s easy to wash, dry and iron, and it doesn’t wrinkle. Poplin is a popular fabric for formal and finer shirts worn to work and special occasions. This bedding’s crisp and cool properties make it ideal for the sweaty sleeper.
Linen is a fabric made from the fibers of the flax plant. It’s crispy, cool and comfortable while being a durable and sustainable choice. Beddings or clothes made from this fabric can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before feeling damp. We usually blend both cotton and linen to get a softer and smoother surface for your comfort.
Chambray is similar to poplin in the way it’s made. The difference is that it has a melange effect due to the white weft and colored warp yarn used in weaving it.
Percale is a medium-weight, tightly woven fabric with a matte finish. It’s crispy and cool and breathes just fine despite its high thread count. That’s because the yarn used in creating it is thin. We use percale in our American sheets and our fitted sheets. The quality is excellent for sheets because it is easy to wash, dry and care for as it has very high durability.
Egyptian cotton is also cool and crispy, but with a smoother and finer finish than the abovementioned. The longer fibers create a fine, soft and stronger cotton compared to other types of cotton. This gives the product its famed soft and exclusive feel.
Sateen is a fabric made with a filling-face satin weave. The difference between satin and sateen is that sateen can only be made from cotton, whereas satin can be made with any fiber (typically silk). Our cotton-sateen is lustrous and soft because of the weave and doesn’t pill. Although sateen is light, it tends to be insulating and trap heat because it drapes to your body.
