What Fabric Should I Choose?


Cotton is the most popular type of bed linen material. It’s used in both five-star hotels and B&Bs. Cotton is long-lasting, durable, breathable and easy to clean.

Hoteliers are increasingly choosing Mercerised Cotton as a fabric option. It gives the fabric a shiny and illuminating appearance, making it a great luxury bedding option. The process of mercerising cotton involves the application sodium hydroxide to the cotton fibers. This makes the fabric stronger and more resistant to mildew. It also makes it easier for you to dye, which means that your sheets will last longer.

This 100% cotton satin-stripe duvet cover is part of the Vision luxury linen range. It has a silky, smooth feel and is a Vision bestseller. This duvet cover is made from mercerised cotton and has an excellent lustre, enhanced strength and smoothness. It is highly sought-after by boutique hotels and high-end hotels.

Un-mercerised cotton shrinks less than Mercerised cotton, so this treatment is ideal for accommodation providers that need to wash their linens more frequently than at home. The 300 threadcount 100% cotton sateen duvet covers from the Vision V collection has an extremely durable feel and provides comfort for longer periods. The sateen construction gives the fabric a sheen that is similar to satin, making it a more comfortable sleeping experience.

What about Egyptian Cotton?

Egyptian cotton is often referred to as the “creme-de-la crème” of cotton. It is associated with high-end products and hotel quality, but it is not the top producer of cotton in the world. Many products labeled Egyptian cotton are not from Egypt. They are only named so because they contain the long-staple, high-quality cotton we have come to know as Egypt.

When making hotel linen, it is important to use high-quality cotton. The growing conditions of the cotton in the country of origin, such as the weather, soil, climate and temperature, as well as the plant type can determine the quality of the cotton.

Our Egyptian cotton explained article will provide more information.

Polycotton Blends

As the preferred bed linen for hotels, polycotton blends are gaining popularity. These blends are much more affordable than 100% cotton and offer a wide range of uses. While cotton can wrinkle and needs to be ironed, polycotton blends are more resistant to static, wrinkles and shrinkage.

It has a soft feel and is quick drying. This makes it a cost-effective solution for busy housekeepers.

One such product is the 144th thread count polycotton duvet covers. It offers many benefits. It’s a popular product and a top seller due to its ease of care and quick drying time.

A 70/30 cotton-rich blend of bed linen offers more of what people love about 100% cotton with the commercially feasible and cost-effective performance of polyester. Our flat sheet is made from a high-quality cotton and has a greater durability than regular washing cycles. It’s also easy to clean and iron, so it’s less likely to creas.

Thread Count

What is the importance of thread count in choosing hotel bedding? Is it really important? It’s just one of the many things you should consider when selecting your bed linen. However, it’s not the only thing that matters. You need to also look at the quality and finish of the fabric.

What is thread count? Thread count simply means the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. The thread count is the most important factor in fabric softness. For a luxurious feel, look for thread counts over 200.

Sometimes, however, you might find thread counts exceedingly high. Some retailers twist multiple threads together to make it appear that they are offering extravagant goods. However, these thread counts can actually reduce the quality and sometimes even cause it to be worse. According to some studies, the maximum number of threads that can fit into a square inch is between 500 and 600.

Although 300-400 is the ideal thread count for luxury bedding, 200-thread-count linen can be extremely comfortable due to its finish. For example, our 200thread count 100% cotton duvet covers guarantee style and comfort in a stunning white color.


Hotels prefer white sheets to all other types of linen. Why? The dazzling white linen is an international symbol of luxury. It creates an illusion of luxury, peace and luxury, but most importantly, it provides a place for restful sleep. It is simple, clean, and inviting. This is what guests want when they are looking for a guest bedroom. Some studies also show that it enhances the feeling that the room has been freshly decorated – even if the bedding or bed has not been changed.

The sateen stripe option is a popular choice for bed linen. It makes bedrooms look luxurious, elegant and focal point. Plain options can be used to create a clean and simple look. For a luxurious and luxurious look, why not consider the V200 200 Thread Count 100% Cotton Duvet Cover?

Weave Of The Fabric


Percale weave, a type of weave that is used in the manufacture of bedding, is a one under-one-over weave that ultimately results in a stronger fabric. Percale weaves are durable enough to withstand multiple washes. They’re usually found on higher thread count bedding. Percale weave threads are tightly woven to provide a fine texture.


The four-over-one under process is used to create a sateen weave. This gives the fabric a shiny and lustrous appearance that is almost satin-like. These sheets are often associated with luxury bed sheets and accessories. They are extremely soft and can be used during winter. Percale sheets, on the other hand, are more comfortable when worn underneath.


Jacquard weaving, an intricate and delicate weave, is where a pattern is woven directly into a fabric. Jacquard patterns can be created by raising the original fabric or using fabrics woven from coloured yarns. Jacquard weaving, one of the oldest forms in weaving, is still being used today. It is printed directly onto the cloth and not separately. This means that the details will be more likely to remain intact wash after wash.


Damask is a term that describes fabric with a pattern weave. They are most commonly found in higher-end linens, but can also be found in tablecloths and napkins. Damascus was once the center of cloth trade between East and West. It is a shiny cloth with an unmistakeable shine. Later, the damask can be seen on both sides of fabric to identify it. The most well-known Irish damask is probably due to its Celtic and Shamrock patterns.

How Does An All-Seasons Duvet Work?

The all-seasons duvets from the Vision range consist of two individual duvets which are held together at various points to provide a superior level of insulation.

A duvet with a lighter rating can be used alone during summer, while a duvet with a higher tog rating is ideal for winter. To make a cozy, warm duvet for winter, just put them together.

Which Tog Rating Is

The lower the tog rating, the lower level of insulation it offers. Therefore, tog ratings of around 4.5 are lighter and perfect during summer months when a low level of insulation is needed due to the surrounding temperature.

A 10.5 tog rating will be more comfortable in the spring and autumn seasons, or with a blanket in winter. A 15 tog rating offers the best insulation for low temperatures and will keep your body warm, snug, and comfortable.
