Spaces Bed Linen - Sleep Blissfully
Most of us are picky when it comes to bed sheets. The linen on our bed is what we come home to, day after and day and these sheets have to look good and feel comfortable. They have to be the best bed sheets you have ever slept on. You can find multiple options in a wide range of prices with Spaces bed linen.
Does Thread Count Matter?
Thread count is often used as the barometer of the bed sheets’ smoothness and durability. However, this measurement which refers to the number of threads woven into a square inch of fabric isn’t always reliable. High thread count is a factor, but the type of cotton can be more significant.
I Want the Best Quality Cotton
The best cotton available is 100% Egyptian cotton. The second best is 100% Pima cotton, also known by the trademarked name Supima. If a label simply says, “100% cotton,” it is safe for you to assume that it’s American upland cotton which is a rougher, less expensive variety. Egyptian cotton’s long fibers produce sheets that are thin, extremely strong, and long-lasting. Spaces Bed Linen offers diwan sets, mattress protectors, bedsheets, and lots more in different types of cotton.
Should I go for Percale or Sateen?
While Percale is a plain, matte weave that has a crisp, cool feel, Sateen is slightly heavier and very soft, with a lustrous, smooth finish. Percale is ideal for people who tend to get overheated when they sleep.
I Have Kids in the House
A cotton-polyester blend, often marketed as “easy care,” is a smart choice, since it withstands frequent washings. A 90/10 blend is durable, looks crisp after a wash, is soft, and cozy. But if you go above 30% synthetic, the sheets won’t feel great and will probably make you sweaty while sleeping.
Material and Design
Bamboo blends have become more popular in recent years. It’s often blended with cotton or other materials because bamboo is sustainable, naturally antimicrobial, and even sips up moisture. Although satin sheets look glamorous and feel romantic, they can be too warm and slippery for many people. Spaces bed linen offer some fun designs and colours that will add a pop of colour to your bedroom.
The number of threads in 2.54-cm (1-inch) of fabric is what is termed as thread count. It's easy to assume that higher means softer but that's not always the case. A sheet with a lower thread-count might have been made from fibers that are softer by nature, such as Egyptian cotton. This will feel silkier than a high thread-count sheet made from a lower-quality cotton blend.
Should I Look at the Weave Too
If you like your sheets with a little snap, choose percale, which is a plainer weave than the more supple sateen. Jersey sheets are designed with a flat knit that keeps them soft but also means they can be prone to slipping and sliding on the bed. If you live somewhere that gets extremely cold, consider nubby cotton flannel sheets. These help you stay warm and cozy.
Spaces bed linen has a wide variety of bedsheets, blankets, mosquito nets, bed covers, quilt battings, etc for you to choose from.
