Everyone loves the thought of being able to sleep soundly on top of the most comfortable sheets. Your baby is no exception. They spend the entire day learning and taking in this whole new environment around them. From active play to imaginative day dreaming, your baby has a full schedule. At the end of the day, they need to enjoy a restful sleep – preferably on cotton crib fitted sheets.
But not all cotton sheets are created equal! While cotton is, hands down, the best material for baby products like blankets and fitted sheets, the type of weave also matters. We recommend sheets that are not only soft and breathable but also fine, tightly woven, and durable.
Living Textiles percale muslin crib fitted sheets fulfill all of these requirements and will last a long time.
What is Muslin?
Muslin is a simple fabric that is made of cotton. It is usually loosely woven, resulting in a lightweight and breathable material, perfect even for warmer weather. Muslin is a preferred fabric when it comes to baby blankets and baby swaddles because it keeps your baby from overheating.
It is a quite comfortable fabric. One of its best-known qualities, as can be attributed to premium quality cotton, is its softness and ability to get even softer with time.
Muslin is also versatile and can be used for almost anything, from cleaning up messes to making makeshift breast pads. In fact, one of the most popular pieces of parenting advice is to hoard a lot of muslin squares!
What is percale?
Percale sheets are one of the most elegant and smooth sheets that you can find in the market. It will remind you of luxurious hotel bedding!
Percale is a plain-weave fabric with a thread count of 200 or higher. Finer than muslin, it is a tightly woven fabric, making it firmer and smoother than your standard weave sheets.
While the actual origin of the word is still contested, it is known that percale was originally imported from India in the 17th and 18th centuries and was present in many trade relations between different countries.
Soft Muslin + Structured Percale
Muslin is, indeed, the ideal fabric for your baby must-haves. Now, regular muslin fabrics are loosely woven. This is alright when it comes to cleaning cloths and soft blankets. However, a loose weave does not really a robust crib fitted sheet make.
We take pride in our desire to innovate and improve the technical aspects of our products. This is how we came up with percale muslin. We combined all the good things about these two fabrics, resulting to sheets and blankets that are both well-structured and incredibly soft.
But is the combination of these characteristics great for baby bed sheets and blankets? Let’s find out.
