Know Your Bedding Material ~ PolyCotton Blend

Poly-Cotton Blend:
A poly-cotton blend is just as its name suggests; a blend of polyester and cotton fibres.

Pros: A polyester-cotton blend can be versatile, retaining the coolness and lightness of the cotton fibre, but also adding the strength, durability and wrinkle-resistance of polyester. This 50-50 Poly-Cotton blend is often preferred by most bedding companies as it only shrinks slightly in comparison to 100% cotton, and is extremely easy to sew.

Cons: The blend does not “breathe” or stay as cool as the pure cotton.
