Is Polycotton Good for Bedding? Absolutely! Most often you have two choices: cotton or polycotton. Those two materials make up the majority of bed linen available to us all in shops and online. Certainly, there are other materials, like bamboo or pure linen, but for the most part, it’s down to cotton or polycotton.
Is Polycotton Good for Bedding?
Polycotton is considerably more durable than cotton. It tends to last a lot longer (with ‘normal’ use) and will survive many more washes in the washing machine. Cotton, while sometimes a ‘softer’ material is a lot more delicate. Cotton will not age well, with continued washing. Cotton also suffers more from general ‘wear and tear’ and is very likely to shrink in the wash.
Polycotton bedding wears much better, even after numerous washes, and can be safely washed at higher temperatures, ensuring cleaner sheets and pillowcases.
There are pros and cons, however. Polycotton, while lasting longer, is much more likely to ‘pill’ – read What is Pilling? for more detailed information on pilling and how it can be removed. While pilling can be overcome, or at least minimised, by various methods, it’s something we’d all prefer not to see on our beds.
Polyester/cotton (Polycotton) mix bed linen is much easier to keep fresh and clean, can be washed at higher temperatures and dries A LOT more quickly than cotton. Also, Polycotton doesn’t suffer from wrinkling, as cotton does. It’s much easier to iron and generally take care of. On the downside, Polycotton will absorb oil-based substances, meaning it will stain more easily. Stains on cotton fabric will wash out easier than Polycotton.
