THE DIFFERENT MATERIALS OF THE BED LINEN

THE DIFFERENT MATERIALS OF THE BED LINEN

To sleep well, some will privilege the softness of a material, others will favour the one that will ensure they are neither too hot nor too cold, the one that is the healthiest...

It is clear that the choice of the material is an important criterion because each fiber has its own specificities and qualities, some are healthy or more or less harmful, ecological, thermoregulating, antifungal, adapted or not to humidity, more or less resistant, pleasant to the touch...

Thus some will prefer natural fibers (cotton, flax, hemp) to synthetic fibers (obtained from products of the carbochemical and petrochemical industries, such as polyester) or artificial fibers (from wood cellulose: rayon, acetate). We also talk about organic or natural bed linen.

The more the fabric is of natural origin, made from the noblest long fibres and without any finishes or toxic products, the better its quality. Natural fabrics all have the advantage of easily wicking away perspiration, or even being thermo-regulating, more comfortable and pleasant to the touch than a composite or synthetic fabric.

How to choose the material of your bed linen?

For bed linen, natural plant materials are often preferred to synthetic materials
