Hollowfibre.  A Great Option for Duvets & Pillows

Hollowfibre.  What is it?  Hollowfibre is a synthetic material made from very thin strands of polyester and have a tiny hole running through the middle of the fibre… they are hollow, hence the name.  Hollowfibre is a great option for duvets, it’s light and very warm.

A Cost-Effective, Easy-Care & Very Warm Duvet Option

Hollowfibre duvets are a great value, choice for comfort and warmth.  They are certainly for more popular than their ‘natural’ filled alternatives.  Of course, we all have our preferences, but whichever you choose, it’s safe to say that we have all slept under a synthetic duvet at some point.

Hollowfibre-filled duvets feel springy and lofty, perfect for snuggling under thick covers that aren’t too heavy. Hollow fibre duvets are much, much easier to wash and care for.  They are machine washable at 60º and dry considerably quicker than natural fillings.  They’re ideal for allergy-sufferers and children.

The Pros and Cons of Hollowfibre

Hollowfibre-filled duvets are considerably less expensive than feather or down filled ones.  They are lightweight, meaning they won’t smother you or feel too heavy at night. They are also particularly good for those who may suffer from allergies.

Hollowfibre filled duvets are also much easier to care for. They can be washed at a higher temperature (usually 60º) and dry much quicker than their ‘natural’ counterparts.

Hollow fibre duvets do, however, have a shorter life span, meaning they will need changing more often.  They tend to ‘flatten’ over time, but this flattening can be fixed with a little care and manual ‘fluffing up’.  Synthetic filling duvets will need replacing every two years, maximum, while feather/down duvets may last a lifetime.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though.  While feather/down will last longer, they are much more expensive and replacing your duvet every so often means a clean and fresh new duvet more often.  A new hollow fibre duvet is a lot cleaner than an older natural duvet, no matter how many times it’s been carefully washed.

Cotton vs Polycotton – which is best?  That’s a difficult question and all depends on what you want.  Cotton is more expensive, but polycotton is way more durable and long-lasting.  Cotton tends to be softer, but polycotton brings a crisp and clean feel to your bedding.

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.
