What Bedding Materials Can I Come Across?

Bedding can be made from a variety of materials. Each of these materials has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is always a good idea to be familiar with each of them. Below, you will find a brief overview of materials, which includes their properties and benefits.

Synthetic Fibres

You will find a lot of bedding that is made from synthetic fibres nowadays. Opposed to materials such as cotton and silk, these materials are manmade. Since synthetic fibres are manmade, they can have some benefits such as colour fastness and durability, but they are less cool than cotton or bedding made from other natural fibres.


One of the most popular options to date for bedding - this thanks to the numerous benefits associated with cotton bedding. Firstly, cotton is cool and breathable, ensuring that you won't feel too warm or uncomfortable while you sleep. Secondly, cotton does not hold onto smells, which makes it a good solution for anyone who tends to perspire a lot while sleeping.


Customers who always get too warm in their bed should certainly consider linen as a material for their bedding. Linen is more breathable than cotton, keeping you cool when you get too warm. However, the opposite is true too, because linen can also keep you nice and warm in the winter. The only downside? Not everyone likes the feel of linen.


Silk is undoubtedly one of the smoothest and most comfortable fibres for bedding. Like cotton and linen, the material is also breathable, meaning it will keep you cool in warmer temperatures. However, silk is more valuable than cotton and linen, which means silk bedding could cost you a little more.

What Is Thread Count and Why Is It Important When I Buy Bedding?

When you shop for bedding, you will often come across a term called "thread count". Thread count is a term that refers to the number of threads in bedding - these counts are horizontally as well as vertically. The higher the count, the more durable your bedding will be.

When you shop for bedding, the thread count will usually be an indicator of quality. However, there are other things to consider when it comes to the quality of your bedding - this includes the material the bedding is made of.

What Is Hypoallergenic Bedding?

Customers who spend some time looking for their new bedding may have come across something called "hypoallergenic bedding". Hypoallergenic bedding is made from materials that are resistant to allergens - this could be allergens such as dust mites. If you have someone in your household who suffers from severe allergies, hypoallergenic bedding could give them a better night sleep.

When you choose hypoallergenic bedding for your home, it is extremely important to look at the material bedding is made of. Most people believe that synthetic materials are best, but this is not true. Synthetic materials are usually subjected to all kinds of chemical processes, which could cause problems for people with a sensitive skin. Therefore, try to stick to manmade fibres such as cotton and silk. Fortunately, hypoallergenic bedding is usually marked with a hypoallergenic label in stores - this makes it easier for you to find allergen-resistant bedding.

What Types of Pillows Can I Get?

Pillows come in different sizes nowadays, so it is important to familiarise yourself with the different types - this includes the standard pillow, square pillow, and European pillow. The reason why the size of your pillow is so important is your matching pillowcases! If you already own a bunch of pillowcases, and need some new pillows, make sure that they match the pillowcases you already own.

The dimensions of pillows are mentioned on the Spotlight website - this makes it easier for customers to find the perfect fit, regardless of them being familiar with pillow types or not. The same goes for our pillowcases, which enable you to quickly find the best fit for your new pillows.
