Children's Microfibre Bedding Sets and Duvet Covers
What is so special about children's microfibre bedding sets and duvet covers? To answer that we need to look at the difference between microfibre and the more commonly used material, cotton.
All linens have a "thread count" which is simply the number of threads per square inch. The threads are counted two ways, by the length and by the width, so if there are 75 threads by length and the same number by width the "thread count" will be 150. The higher the thread count, the softer the material will be.
Cotton is a natural material picked from the plant, whereas microfibre is created in the factory from things such as wood pulp, or maybe from nylon or polyester. The thickness of fibre is called the denier and the finer the thickness of a fibre the more it will take to fill a square inch. Microfibre has to be less than one denier. Compare that to the finest silk which is 1.25 denier. In short, the higher the thread count and the lower the denier, the stronger and softer the material will be.
Soft to the touch
So children's microfibre bedding sets and duvets are composed of fibres which are extremely soft to the touch, and at the same time the material is thin. It is also very strong - essential for kids when they play - and will withstand regular washing.
Children's microfibre bedding sets and duvets are almost always offered in very bright colours and with patterns that appeal to kids. For instance, there are Paw Patrol patterns, Peppa Pig designs , Spiderman, Disney characters , duvets featuring cars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles designs and many more.
Many of these bedding sets have duvet covers which are reversible and have a different design on the reverse side which is great because you get two patterns for the price of one!
