If you’re new to the world of linen, you may think that just a handful of different types of material are used for making sheets and duvet covers. But the truth is that there are hundreds of different materials that are used, so how do you choose?
A comfortable night's sleep starts with the right sheets! And you have so much more than just your standard cotton sheets to choose from. As suppliers of a wide range of different sheets in NZ, these are some of our favourite fabrics at George Street Linen!
Our bamboo cotton sheets are made with an even mixture of bamboo and cotton. Bamboo is fast becoming a popular material because of its hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial qualities. Furthermore, it can adapt to the body’s temperature,making it a fantastic choice for both summer and winter!
If you are looking for luxury, sateen is it. It is constructed with superfine yarns which grove it a warm, buttery finish. Sateen may be a luxurious fabric but in most instances it is not much more expensive than sheets made of other materials.
Percale refers to the weave used in this specialised type of cotton. Percale is known to be one of the most balanced weaves, which makes it incredibly soft and comfortable on the skin. It has a lovely crisp, matte feel which sets it apart from other materials.
100% linen means that the sheet has been crafted by linen fibres and only linen fibres. So why linen? Linen is known for being incredibly light, breathable, and easy to wash. It keeps you cool in the summer and cosy in the winter, and has a very classic look and feel which makes it a very sought after material for sheets.
