Sheet Fabrics: Cotton vs. Tencel

October 04, 2016

In our last post we discussed the difference the way your sheets are woven can make. This is not, however, the only thing you should take into consideration when choosing the right sheets for your bed. We know, we’ve said it a million times before, but the type of fabric your sheets are made of will make or break your sleeping experience.

Two of the most common types of fabric you will find sheets made of are cotton and tencel. Depending on your personal preferences either of these fabrics may work for you better than the other. However, in order to know which you should be purchasing from the online Warm Things bedding store, we think you could use a bit more information about both.

Cotton Sheets

You may be surprised to learn that a large number of people think that all sheets are cotton. This is because cotton sheets are the most widely advertised due to the sheer amount that are not only made, but enjoyed on beds all over the world. There are many different kinds of cotton sheets including Egyptian cotton and Pima cotton. These sheets tend to be on the higher end of the cost spectrum when it comes to cotton sheets. Cotton sheets are comfortable in all seasons and offer a wide variety of choices as they are sold more than sheets made of any other material.

Tencel Sheets

Tencel is actually the brand name of a type of fiber known as Lyocell. A type of rayon, Lyocell is made of cellulose derived from renewable resources like wood. While this may not sound like a comfortable material to sleep on, it actually has a fairly soft feel and rather than soaking up moisture, it somewhat repels it. This eco-friendly choice can also carry a hefty price tag.

Finding the right sheets to give you the sleep you desire can be tricky. But with the help of the bedding experts at Warm Things you can find the right sheets for the right price in our online store. Start shopping for your new cotton or Tencel sheets right now!
