Microfiber: What Is It And What’s The Hype?

Microfiber bedding has been on the rise in recent years, and for good reason. This synthetic fabric is incredibly soft, comfortable, and durable. It's also relatively inexpensive, making it a great option for those on a budget.

But what exactly is microfiber? And why is it so good for your bed? Keep reading to get all your questions answered (and also learn why your old cotton bedding just isn’t the way to go anymore). 

Don’t Buy Bedding Until You Read This!

Microfiber is a type of synthetic fabric that is made from ultra-fine fibers. These fibers are much smaller than traditional cotton fibers, which is what gives microfiber its soft and luxurious feel.

Microfiber is also incredibly strong and durable. It can withstand repeated washings without fading or pilling. This makes it a great choice for bedding, as it will last for many years to come.

The Age-Old Debate: Microfiber Vs Cotton

Cotton is among the most popular bedding textiles on the market today. It’s a leading contender when it comes to selecting bedding for your perfect bedroom oasis. But, don’t let cotton’s popularity deceive you.

Cotton bed sheets may be popular, but they are not as mindful or comfortable as they seem. Cotton production requires a lot of water, energy, and chemicals. Cotton sheets can also retain heat and lose their softness over time. We don’t like that for the planet or for you.

Microfiber, on the other hand, has a plethora of positive properties that make it the better textile choice for your bedroom.

Why? Here are just a few of the reasons:

  • Softness: Microfiber is incredibly soft and comfortable. It's even softer than some high-quality cotton fabrics on the market today!
  • Durability: Microfiber is very durable. It can withstand repeated washings without fading or pilling and is much longer-lasting and more breathable than the highest thread count Egyptian Cotton. 
  • Wrinkle Resistance: Microfiber is wrinkle-resistant. This means that you won't have to spend as much time ironing your bedding or doing tons of care and maintenance to keep your sheets looking silky, smooth, and bedroom-ready.
  • Price: Microfiber bedding is typically more affordable than cotton bedding. That means more bang for your buck, less worrying, and more quality snoozing.

The Hype Is Real

When it comes to comfort, affordability, and year-round use, microfiber bedding is truly the real deal. If you’re searching for a new set of bedding, don’t spend oodles of your hard-earned cash on cotton that can’t live up to its hype like microfiber can.
