There used to be a time when buying goods from a wholesaler meant traveling to a special market, that usually happened to be far from one’s residence, and spending the day, moving from shop to shop to find the best bargain. But with the advent of internet, everything changed. E-commerce took the whole world by storm and changed the way we would shop forever by opening the world to us. Competitive bargains and offers are at our finger tips and for the money savvy home decorator or retailer, buying wholesale bed sheets has changed from a hectic market hunt to a simple affair of making the right choice online.
The most important factor that should affect your choice when purchasing wholesale bed covers is comfort. After all, without the core function of the bed sheet i.e. a relaxing place to rest on, all the money saved is pointless as the lack of a good night’s sleep is highly counter-productive.
It is a sound idea to acquaint yourself with the various types of fabrics in which bed sheets are available so that you are able to make the correct choice based on their priority of price, comfort or durability.
Fabrics for wholesale bed sheets range from cotton to silk and satin:
Cotton, the most commonly used fabric, has been around in bed sheets from time immemorial, because of the fact that it is comfortable and durable. Its popularity derives itself from its soft texture, breathable material and moisture absorbing properties. The catch in using standard cotton linen sheets is that they get wrinkled after a washing and, consequently, have to be ironed every time. Using Egyptian cotton sheets is a potential workaround to this problem as it maintains its silk-like smoothness even after several machine washes.
Silk sheets, with their smooth texture, moisture absorbent and heat retentive properties, represent the pinnacle of luxury and quality, when it comes to bedding. They have the drawback of being delicate, requiring them to be dry cleaned rather than home washed.
Satin is a glossy fabric created from materials like silk, nylon and rayon which may be synthetic in nature. Its tight weave can cause discomfort because it prevents moisture absorption.
