Why are they Called ‘Oxford’?
‘Oxford’ describes pillowcases with a border, or frill, around the edge, as opposed to ‘Housewife’ style pillowcases, with do not have the frill. While ‘Housewife’ pillowcases tend to be more popular than Oxford, a combination of both styles brings a real touch of luxury to your cotton bedding scheme. Oxford pillowcases add a touch of elegant style. Our Oxford pillowcases are made to fit the standard Ireland/UK pillow size – 50cm by 75cm, which we can also supply. Shop for pillows here.
The name ‘Oxford pillowcase’ didn’t originate from the city Oxford in England, as you might imagine, but instead took its name from the hard-wearing fabric it was originally made with – ‘Oxford cloth’. Oxford cloth was – and is – used to make shirts and, for some reason, became the cloth chosen for the more elegant and durable alternative to the simple housewife pillowcase design.

Which is Better, Polycotton or Cotton?
Cotton feels a lot softer than polycotton. The natural fibres of cotton feel much softer and more natural. Polycotton bed sheets, however, will keep you much warmer than cotton, but polycotton lacks the ‘breathability’ of cotton, as cotton offers a greater circulation of air. If the months are warmer, you might want to consider cooler, cotton, Egyptian or Pima cotton fabrics for your bedding. Cotton is also much more absorbent that Polycotton, meaning that any sweat you produce while asleep is likely to be kept underneath the covers as you sleep. Cotton, however, will absorb sweat. To be honest, we can’t decide which is ‘better’, or if there is a ‘better’. If a person sweats much at night, the sheets will need washing either way.
Polycotton is Considerably Less Costly
Generally speaking, cotton bedding – particularly Egyptian and Pima cotton – is more expensive than Polycotton. However, polycotton sheets and pillowcases cost significantly less and, if cared for properly, are far more durable, less likely to wear and tear. Polycotton bedding might be more appropriate for beds with a high turn-over of guests. Read more about Polycotton vs Cotton in the Bedding Blog.

Cotton vs Polycotton
It’s all a matter of preference! Cotton feels softer on your skin, but polycotton feels crisp and fresh on your bed. Cotton is less strong and more likely to tear, whereas polycotton is a much stronger material, less likely to tear.
Cotton is also notoriously awkward to keep clean. It requires lower temperatures, meaning a less thorough wash and is considerably more difficult to iron. Polycotton however, can be washed a temperatures up to 60°, meaning a much cleaner wash. It can be tumble dried without any problems and is much easier to iron. Combining cotton and polyester makes the garment less prone to piling and static. One of the main advantages of the cotton-polyester blend is that it is more wrinkle-free.

Polycotton is Strong & Durable
Polycotton is a highly durable material as Polyester contains strong plastic-like substances, making it far less likely to rip or tear. The durable nature of Polycotton makes it an very popular choice in commercial situations such as hotels, where bed sheets are often changed often.
Polycotton is a blend of natural cotton and synthetic polyester. Both Cotton and Polycotton bed sheets are easy to care for, both types of fabric can be washed on normal cycles in your washing machine and can be dried in the dryer. It is advised to wash cotton at lower temperatures (around 30° or 40°) however Polycotton can be washed at higher temperatures – up to 60° – for ultimate cleanliness. Washing natural fabrics like cotton 60 degrees may (most likely, will) cause them to shrink, however polycotton will not. That said, there are a number of types of cotton and polycotton, so always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when washing and drying your sheets and bed linen.
