Who doesn’t love to sleep? Diving into your bed after a stressful day is one of the most amazing feelings in the world, but you might not be getting the most of these wonderful hours of sleep. To get the best night’s sleep, at first, it is important to create a peaceful environment, and using the best home linen is also the key.

Bed linen comprises materials like cotton, satin, Ranforce, poly-cotton, polyester, printed, and bamboo, and even gives our bedrooms unique, innovative designs and various color ranges. Here is the complete detail on what materials are used in the production of bed linen.


Cotton is the most widely used fabric due to its strength and durability properties. It helps your body to breathe while you sleep because of its high air permeability so that it does not cause excessive sweating or discomfort. Because of its flexible structure, it keeps cool and is durable.

Polycotton Polyester

These are the products manufactured from yarn obtained by combining different types of materials such as 70% cotton 30% polyester – 60% cotton 40% polyester or 50% cotton 50% polyester, can be produced. Polycotton bed linen sets are chosen over those made of 100% cotton fabric since they are more affordable.

Cotton Wool (Satin)

It is the most popular type of fabric used for bed linen. Woven using yarn made entirely of Turkish cotton. It is between 74-120 wires in cm2, due to the high number of wires, the fabric becomes softer, the quality is better, and gives a radiant appearance. Prevents sweat formation due to air-permeable structure. Unlike cotton white sheets or other linen, cotton satin does not need to be ironed after washing.


It is the synthetic substance that is most commonly used. Glossy, silky, and smooth. It resists heat and does not wrinkle.

Bamboo Woven

Bamboo fabric refers to textiles made from a natural fiber obtained from the bamboo plant. Because of their antibacterial qualities, these provide an extremely hygienic environment. It is a soft fabric that keeps cool all because of its air permeability. Perfect for use during the summer season. It has a moisture-absorbing property, so it easily absorbs sweat and does not induce discomfort. It creates a light, soft and silky touch.


Although there are many different types of mixed fabrics, cotton and polyester blends are the most common you will see. Nylon-polyester, cotton-rayon, and cotton-bamboo are a few more blends that you can get easily. These are quite affordable, strong, and wrinkle-resistant. These are merely the most common kind of materials that you can get from any store. There are many more types that are made by blending and quilting multiple fabric materials.


 Everyone knows that silk is derived from the delicate fiber produced by silkworms. It is challenging to develop an alternative to natural silk. They are ideal for loungewear since they are cool, silky, and sensual. It is an expensive item and considered a luxury. It is delicate and should be washed with care.
