If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to 100% cotton that still offers softness and durability, you may find that polycotton duvet covers and sheets offer the best of both worlds.
Polycotton linen holds its shape well even after many washes, it doesn’t shrink and its colours won’t fade quickly. A blended duvet cover or sheet will probably last longer than its cotton counterpart.
Polycotton sheets and duvet covers are relatively soft and smooth, and they even wrinkle less than cotton, making them a popular choice, especially for people on a tighter budget. This type of bedding hardly requires any ironing – you may sometimes want to give it a quick iron, but if hung out to dry correctly, you can get away with no ironing at all.
What is Polycotton?
Polycotton is a blend of Polyester and Cotton. Often the blend is roughly 65% Cotton and 35% Polyester, but the ratio between the two materials varies.
It is known to have a rougher feel compared to that of cotton, largely due to the fabric containing the manmade synthetic fibre, polyester. On the other hand, it’s incredibly long-lasting, and can be washed and dried again and again, without tearing, shrinking or fading.
