Best Material for Bedding: Fabric Guide to a Great Night’s Sleep

When you snuggle up in your bed for the night, you want to be comfortable. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and content with the softness of your kingdom for the night. So what is the best material for bedding? How do you know what is going to be a great bedding fabric and what will be a bedding material disaster? We’ve done some research and taken a look into the best fabric to sleep on to give you one of the most comfortable nights you could dream of.

Your Guide to the Best Material For Bedding and Nightwear

1. Plush Velvet

All bedding fabrics have different uses, depending on exactly what you’re intentions are. Plush Velvet has a soft, fluffy pile and a smooth surface. While this sounds absolutely amazing, you wouldn’t necessarily want to sleep on it all night, as it might get a bit too warm. What it is perfect for, however, is a kimono or robe. Create your own soft and fluffy bathrobe using Plush Velvet and experience the soft, snuggly nature for yourself.

2. Polar Fleece

Polar Fleece is an amazing fabric, with a brushed finish to the front and back. It is fluffy and comfortable and doesn’t crease easily. Perfect for blankets when you need that extra snuggly layer in the winter as well as for robes. With a shorter pile than the Plush Velvet and a water-repellant hydrophobic nature, this is definitely a favorite for when the cold nights draw in.

3. Bamboo Soft

I know, I know, isn’t bamboo what the pandas eat? But, hear me out. Bamboo Soft is a smooth fabric, with a structured build. It has a matte finish and, as it says right there in the name, it’s soft. Not only does it have a crip, silky finish, but it’s also super breathable, which makes it perfect for bedding. It does have a slightly starchier feel to it than a polycotton sheet, which makes it firmer and taut.

4. Peached Poly Sheeting

We can’t recommend this one enough. In fact, we love the Peached Poly Sheeting so much that we use it in our duvet coverspillowcases and fitted sheets. It is soft, it’s breathable and it has amazing anti-wrinkle properties. It also has a peached surface which gives it that wonderfully luxurious feel. It has a thread count of 200 making it perfect for bedding.

5. Microfiber Terry Towelling

So, this one might sound like an odd choice, but it’s an amazing bedding material. So much so that we offer it as a fabric option for bathrobes. It’s rated for nightwear, super-soft, and water absorbent. It molds itself easily to take on any shape – including you!

6. Loopback

Loopback is another jersey fabric, so you already know it’s super soft. It has a soft matte face and a super comfortable looped back. It’s heavyweight and solid, with a tight-knit so that it retains its shape well. It’s great for nightwear applications, so much so that we use it to make our onesies. A great choice for nightwear.

7. Soft Fashion Jersey

This fabric is one of our newer additions, and, frankly, we love it. It’s soft, stretchy, and has a wonderful matte finish. It clings to you where it should and then drapes beautifully everywhere else. It’s perfect for PJs. So much so that we use it for our pajama set and the men’s and women’s PJ bottoms. If that isn’t testament enough as to how comfortable this is, we even offer it as an option for the ladies panties.
