Buying a bedtime couch either because of the upcoming wedding, a new life living away from parents or even renovating what you already have at home is a bit of a chore, but it can also be fun. Bedding, besides having the goal of promoting comfort for the moment of sleep, express the personality of the people, because they are very personal items that make up the decoration of the house.
While setting up a trousseau is exciting, choosing each item may cause some doubt as there are numerous possibilities of formats and materials according to LOVERISTS.
The general expectation regarding bed linen is that it helps to decorate the room, being in harmony with all the environment and style of decoration chosen and lasts for many years, so it is important to study the subject to invest not only in beauty, But also in quality.
The Choice Of Material
One of the first things to think about when buying a good sheet is the material from which it is formed. Besides the desired quality of durability, no one wants to sleep on a fabric that causes temperature or texture to be uncomfortable.
In order not to make the wrong choice and not to buy perspiration or bedding, ideally bedding should be 100% cotton or predominantly cotton, since other materials, such as polyester, Some advantages such as wrinkle resistance, durability and color retention, do not have the soft touch of natural fibers and do not let the skin breathe as they are made of plastic.
Among the wonderful natural fibers, Egyptian cotton and Pima Cotton are the best quality materials, that is, they give rise to soft sheets that do not form polka dots and last a long time.
Number Of Wires
The number of yarns in the sheets is also a relevant feature as to their quality and comfort, as the larger the number of yarns per inch the softer and longer the fabric.
The minimum number of yarns so that a sheet is cuddly and does not tear easily are 200 yarns per inch, and the more yarns above this number the sheet has, the softer the texture of the cotton and the more this material will resemble the satin texture.
