Cotton is the classic choice for bed linens and it's no wonder. Breathable, soft and easy to care for, it does everything you want your bedlinen to do. As a natural fibre, cotton is very breathable, helping your skin breathe for a more comfortable night's sleep. Its moisture-wicking properties mean the cotton threads take moisture away from the skin and into the air, leaving you feeling fresher and cooler for a more comfortable night's sleep.
Cotton feels different depending on its weave, the fineness of the yarns and the thread count. Typically as thread count increases, the fineness of the yarn increases as well so that more threads can be woven into each square inch. Generally, the finer the yarn, the smoother and softer the cloth. A percale weave feels crisp and fresh while a sateen weave feels softer and silkier.
Cotton is hard wearing and can be regularly machine-washed and tumble-dried making it the perfect choice for busy households.
