What do all the different types of bedding mean?

One of the most popular choices when choosing bedding is Polycotton, usually an equal mix of polyester and cotton, this type of bedding is well known for being available in a huge assortment of colours, washing well and requiring little to no ironing. A true bonus!

100% cotton bedding is more breathable and will help regulate your body temperature while you sleep. It’s well known to last for years and due to its manufacturing process is easy to wash and care for.

Organic cotton is an environmentally friendly option due to the manufacturing processes used and the lack of harmful pesticides within.

Genuisa cotton is grown for longer than traditional cotton resulting is a longer, finer thread that create luxurious, smooth bedding that feels similar to silk.

Egyptian cotton, grown in the fertile Nile Valley, is famed for its durability and comfort. Similarly Pima cotton is grown in the United States with similar properties to Egyptian cotton. Both have high thread counts as standard.

Linen, derived from the flax plant, feels nice and cool in summer and gets softer over the years. A Linen-cotton blend is more affordable and generally easier to care for than 100 percent linen bedding.

Bamboo isn’t as strange as it sounds for bedding, it’s ideal at regulating your body temperature while you sleep. Often blended with organic cotton, its also naturally resistant to bacteria.
