Are Microfiber Sheets a Good Choice?
There are variations in the threads, with a blend of cotton, polyester, and nylon being the most common Microfiber. In fact the term microfiber refers to any fiber where the strands are less than a denier in width; a denier is a measurement that is used to identify the fiber thickness of the individual threads. Apart from bed sheets you may have seen the term when buying pantyhose or stockings. A denier is extremely fine, three times more so than cotton. This makes for very soft sheets.
Some complain of static with these sheets but this seems to be the only downside. This is easy to correct with a fabric softener like BOUNCE in the drier when they are washed.
The advantages of Microfiber Sheets
- They need no ironing; they do not wrinkle
- They do not develop cotton balls
- They are durable and seem to last forever.
- If liquid spills it will bead up and be easy to wipe off the sheet leaving no stain
- There is a significant price advantage over all other sheets, especially King and Cal King.
- In the summertime these sheets breathe so you don’t sleep all sweaty.
