When it comes to choosing the right type of sheets for your bed, the options can be daunting.
From silky-smooth, to crisp and lightweight, fabric type, thread count, and so much more, there are a lot of factors to consider – especially when a good night’s sleep is at stake! For a little help on making the right pick, we came up with a quick little guide to helping you choose the perfect sheeting for any occasion. Check it out!
If you live in a moderately temperate area or keep your bedroom at a consistent temperature, you may be able to use the same sheeting fabric throughout the year, and for many, sateen is a comfortable standby that always works. Known for its sumptuous, all over silky feel, sateen is in many cases the ideal bedding for any occasion, and is often woven from high quality long-staple cotton for superior strength and durability. Not to mention it often comes woven with a high thread count for an additional luxurious feel. If you’re looking for something reliably smooth and comfortable, look no further than our luxurious Sateen!
Another popular sheeting fabric that’s incredibly versatile is percale. Crisp, lightweight and breathable, it’s often hailed as the best choice for bedding in the warmer summer months, although it can also be comfortable year round depending on your sleep temperature preferences. Known for it’s “plain-weave” construction, a simple weave that crosses over and under for a lightweight, durable design, percale is ideal for keeping you cool throughout the night. Plus, it gets softer after each wash for additional comfort and can last years with little to no pilling! Reliable and crisp, our percale is a must-have for anyone looking for a great night’s sleep.
The perfect choice for cold winter nights, Flannel is a popular favorite for a reason: it’s a classic that never fails to be perfectly cozy. Napped and brushed for extreme coziness, flannel is known to be one of the heaviest sheeting fabrics available, with a unique construction that helps trap in extra warmth to keep you cozy throughout the night. Here at Cuddledown, we offer high quality flannel from Germany, known worldwide for their expertise and fine craftsmanship. Made from hearty 6 oz. 100% combed cotton flannel, there’s no better way to stay warm and toasty during the winter!
When it comes to finding a lightweight sheet for your bed, look no further than voile. Soft and sheer, yet extremely durable, this fabric is the lightest sheeting available – in fact it’s so light it’s nearly translucent! For keeping cool in the summer or anytime of year, our voile is the lightest, most breathable option around.
Featherlight, soft and airy, Batiste is equally ideal for warmer weather, although it is less translucent than voile. If you’re looking for something that’s not quite as sheer, as voile yet just as soft and durable, our Batiste is a great option for you.
Another excellent choice for sheeting throughout the year is linen! Known for it’s temperature regulating properties, linen is a durable medium weight fabric that helps absorb moisture away from your body and evaporate it into the air to keep you cool throughout the night. And here’s another fun fact: it may also help you sleep better and wake up feeling refreshed according to a study conducted by the University of Milan! Plus, because it’s a natural fiber, our fine Italian Linen is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and gets softer each time you wash it. Pretty neat!
The smoothest of all fabrics available, silk has a number of natural properties that make it an ideal choice for many sleepers. One of the more interesting aspects of silk is that it is naturally temperature regulating, meaning it’s a perfectly luxurious choice for any time of year, due to it’s ability to draw moisture away from the body and keep you comfortable throughout the night. It’s also proven to be gentle on hair and skin! For those who crave luxurious comfort, you can’t beat our silk!
