A bedstand is a blanket placed over sheets and blankets. Also called bed throw bedspread or bedspread. … Bed Throw can be part of a bedding set, and it will usually be in these cases matched with pillowcases, sheets and duvet covers
A plaid, or plaid blanket, is a large thick woolen twill fabric, mostly tartan. It serves as a Scottish cloak for which he claims membership in a clan. This is also the name of a plaid plaid travel blanket.
Since the late twentieth century, the top sheet is often replaced by a duvet.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, sheets can be made of “non-woven” polypropylene fabric. This material is more economical than cotton and can be used to replace bed sheets for every use. It is widely used in the hotel industry.
Percale is a very fine cotton fabric of superior quality. She is very appreciated in bedding for its smooth, silky and soft touch.
The term describes the weaving of materials, not its content, percale can be a mixture of 50% cotton, 50% polyester or 100% cotton, or a mixture of other materials regardless of their proportions. The weaving of percale has 78 threads per square centimeter or more.
Percale means a weave and not a material. It consists of long and very fine cotton threads
The weaving of the percale is simple, however it allows the sheet to be resistant because the threads are very tight. It is made thanks to the crossing of the threads. More simply: the weft thread passes perpendicularly through the warp threads (stretched threads).
This weave gives a matte appearance to the fabric.
The thread count for a percale is 78 threads / cm² minimum. We can go up to 200 threads for very high quality bed linen.
Cotton whose name comes from the Arabic qutuun is a plant fiber that surrounds the seeds of “true” cotton (Gossypium sp.), A shrub of the family Malvaceae. This fiber is usually transformed into yarn that is woven to make fabrics. Cotton is the most produced natural fiber in the world. Since the nineteenth century, thanks to advances in industrialization and agronomy, it has been the world’s leading textile fiber (almost half of the world’s textile fiber consumption).
The most popular cotton varieties are Gossypium arboreum and Gossypium herbaceum. These two forms of short-staple cotton have given rise to many varieties, but are almost no longer exploited as such because their fibers are too short.
Gossypium barbadense, a cotton tree of Peruvian origin, accounts for about 6% of the world’s fiber production. Its cultivation was notably introduced in Egypt and produces, today through the quality “Jumel”, one of the best cottons of the world in terms of the quality and the length of fibers.
Gossypium hirsutum, which accounts for about 81.5% of the world’s fiber production, is also native to South America.
