What are the tips for choosing cotton quilt covers:

Hand touch

If the quilt cover is a quilt covered by slurry, it will be a little hard, brush it with your hand, feel a little resistance, and feel that the moisture in the palm of your hand seems to be sucked away, that is, the cotton content is higher; If it is slippery to hold, this is not pure cotton, and it is generally added with chemical fiber components.


Face down the cloth: if the fine fibers of the cloth are straight and short, evenly distributed, and there are few long fibers that are curved, the cotton content is higher; On the contrary, it contains more chemical fiber components. What we usually call “pilling” is actually caused by long fibers rolling together after long-term friction.


Smell the fabric: because of the difference in printing and dyeing processes, fabrics with more chemical fiber components tend to accumulate more dye, so the industrial taste of this quilt cover will also be stronger; Quilt cover fabrics with higher cotton content generally do not print too complex and too fine patterns, and the industrial taste is relatively light.

Review the labels

Generally, the label of the regular manufacturer will indicate the cotton content of the quilt cover, and the cotton content of more than 70% according to the national regulations is considered a pure cotton quilt cover.


As the saying goes, you get what you pay for, the cotton quilt cover is more comfortable, thicker, and its price is relatively high. The higher the cotton content of the quilt cover, the higher the price marked, the cheap quilt cover, will not be pure cotton quilt cover.

Which is better, polyester futon or cotton futon

Some people think that cotton is good, and some people think that polyester fiber is environmentally friendly. The same is the material woven into the fabric, made into different things, the effect is different.

Polyester fiber is often called polyester, often used as a common fabric for sports pants, but polyester is not breathable, easy to feel stuffy, not a high-end fabric. Today, when the world is taking the route of environmental protection, autumn and winter fabrics are also commonly used, but they are not easy to make underwear. The production cost is lower than cotton. Polyester is acid resistant. When washing, use neutral or acidic detergent, and alkaline detergent will accelerate the aging of the fabric. In addition, polyester fabrics generally do not require ironing, and low-temperature steam can be lightly ironed. Because no matter how many times it is ironed, it is the same as cotton, and it will wrinkle when exposed to water.

Cotton and polyester fibers are different, cotton is alkali resistant. When cleaning, it is good to use ordinary washing powder, medium temperature steam is lightly blanched, cotton is breathable, moisture wicking, children’s clothing fabrics are often selected.

Although the advantages and disadvantages of cotton and polyester fiber are different, in order to neutralize their respective advantages and make up for the shortcomings, many times the two materials will be combined in a certain proportion and used, which can learn from each other and achieve the effect needed in daily life.
