Why use both a fitted and flat sheet?
Flat sheets are a choice among some people while others prefer to forego them altogether. There is really no right or wrong answer. So here are some bedding facts that will help decide if flat sheet is right for you.
Benefits of using a flat sheet
• A flat sheet is much easier to wash than a duvet cover. Flat sheets are meant to keep your duvet and heavy blankets from getting dirty since those items are bigger and may be harder or more expensive to clean.
• Your duvet cover will stay cleaner for longer periods of time. Instead of having to washing your duvet cover, you can simply throw your flat sheet in the wash.
• Flat sheets can also be tucked around your mattress and be used as a fitted sheet. This is especially helpful if you have a thick mattress and can’t find a fitted sheet to cover it.
• Flat sheets help with temperature control. It can be nice to use your sheets under light blankets in the spring and summer, so you can easily adjust to your desired temperature without hopping out of bed.
“Percale” refers to the type of fabric weave. A percale weave has a thread count of at least 180 or higher, and is noticeably tighter than the standard type of weave used for bed-sheets. It has medium weight, is firm and smooth with no gloss, and warps and washes very well. Our 200 thread count 100% Cotton Percale Flat Sheet is currently available in 3 colours – White; Pebble; and Silver.
Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fibre that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of cotton plants of the genus Gossypium in the family of Malvaceae. The fibre is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile. The use of cotton for fabric is known to date to prehistoric times; fragments of cotton fabric dated from 5000 BC have been excavated in Mexico and the Indus Valley Civilisation in Indian subcontinent between 6000 BC and 5000 BC. Although cultivated since antiquity, it was the invention of the cotton gin that lowered the cost of production that led to its widespread use, and it is the most widely used natural fibre cloth in bedding today.
Cotton is used to make a number of textile products. These include terrycloth for highly absorbent bath towels to seersucker fabrics.
