Microfiber sheeting has rapidly gained popularity over recent years because they are cheap and relatively super soft. Basically, they are made from ultra-soft polyester (hence the microfiber name) and are extremely thin, ultra-smooth and ultra-durability. In fact, when you compare them to typical sheets, you can hardly tell the difference. This type of sheeting is also known as a very fine and powder coated blanket because it feels incredible plush on your skin!
The microfiber used in these products are incredibly thin, but are incredibly durable. It’s like the difference between something thin and spongy and something ultra-thick and tough, yet completely smooth. This is because this type of synthetic fabric doesn’t have any ‘bounce’. What this means is that it retains its shape and structure quite well which significantly reduces sagging. This also makes it perfect for products that may be subject to constant exposure to moisture and heat.
Another advantage to using microfiber sheeting is that they are completely machine washable. You can simply throw them in the washing machine and let it do its job. Unlike most other types of cotton sheets, you don’t have to worry about getting them dry cleaned or in any way ironed because they will not come out looking anything like new. These microfiber products can be easily washed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle with cold water and then dried flat.
However, one thing to remember when using microfiber is that they do not have as much ‘toughness’ as regular cotton sheets which can be really dull and boring. In fact, many designers consider them to be too stiff and look unfriendly compared to their high thread counts. The reality is that microfiber is a wonderful choice if you want a smooth feel in your clothing. It also has the advantage of having higher thread counts than regular cotton sheets which can add texture and extra comfort. Visit here for more information about microfiber sheets vs cotton.
As for price points, you will find microfiber sheet sets starting at around for light fabric (such as cotton) or more for extremely heavy-duty fabrics like twill. You will find that the price points go all the way up to hundreds and thousands of dollars for even the best microfiber. Of course, the price points are determined by what type of microfiber you choose and how much microfiber you need. Typically, to get the best quality, it is necessary to purchase a large quantity of microfiber sheet sets.
Microfiber sheet sets are also available in two different size ranges: small/standard and large/long. While the majority of people prefer the small/standard sheets because they are closer to the original thread count of the fabric, large/long sheets are nice because they can be used for items such as quilts and baby blankets. If you are shopping for a new bedding set, look for sheets with a thread count between 101 and 100.
