Bed sheets – The sheets work to keep warm during sleep and protect your mattress from the dirt and hair of animals. Sheets also help keep the mattress pads in place. Sheet sets include an adjustable sheet that covers your mattress and a flat sheet that sits on top of the fitted sheet. Bedding sets can also include matching pillowcases. You can buy sheet sets for any standard size mattress, including futon mattresses, air and water from the bed.
The standard materials used for the manufacture of bed sheets include cotton and polyester. Cotton sheets allow air circulation, which helps regulate body temperature during sleep. The sheets made of flannel sheets provide extra heat retention during the colder months. Satin or microfiber sheets usually have a softer texture than cotton sheets or standard cotton blend, but satin sheets have a tendency to wrinkle after repeated use. Ecological manufacturers use bamboo as an alternative to the standard bed sheet material. The texture of the bamboo leaves softens after repeated washes.
Thread count for cotton bed sheets measuring from 200 to over 1,000. These measurements indicate the number of strands of single or double cotton yarn contains each square inch of sheet. Single-layer cotton sheets with high yarns generally have a smooth texture.The thread count of double-layer cotton sheets is equivalent to the same amount of single-layer cotton sheet yarns.
