Hotel Collection Sheets
There’s something special about spending the night in a luxury hotel room. Of course, it’s exciting to travel and visit new places. However, hotels have their own sort of magic that goes beyond the destination. In particular, many of us appreciate the luxe decadence of sleeping in hotel bedding. Exceptionally soft and fresh, hotel sheets provide a cozy, restorative quality that enables sleepers to rest comfortably while away from home. While you might not be able to get away for an extravagant vacation just now, there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying hotel-quality sheets at home. You just have to know where to look. At Pure Parima, we’re passionate about providing shoppers with a wide selection of hotel collection sheets for better rest. Keep reading to learn more about the kinds of sheets found in five-star hotels and discover tips on choosing the best bedding for you.
Understanding Five-Star Hotel Quality Sheets
If you’ve spent the night in a fine hotel lately, then you know the bedding tends to be top notch, and for good reason. After all, you’re unlikely to return to a facility where the sheets are rough, scratchy, hot, or full of pills. To that end, hotels invest in high-end sheets and pillowcases that feel smooth and cool no matter how much you toss and turn. Comfortable sheets are especially crucial for business travelers, who have to be on the ball for meetings and presentations. If they aren’t getting enough sleep because of low-quality bedding, you can bet the hotel management will hear about it.
Additionally, hotels tend to choose their sheets based on durability. Unlike the bedding in your home, which probably gets laundered once every couple weeks, hotel linens are changed on a daily basis. To that end, hotel collection sheets need to be able to hold up to regular trips through the washer and dryer. If the sheets a hotel chooses fall apart in the laundry, the hotel is on the hook to replace them.
Of course, hotel bedding isn’t just about comfort and durability. Appearances also matter when it comes to sheets and pillowcases, so hotels tend to choose crisp, fresh-looking sheets. Most hotels also choose white sheets over the various colors available because it gives the appearance of cleanliness. After all, no one wants to lay down on sheets that seem dull, faded, or even used!
What to Look for in High-Quality Bed Sheets
Clearly hotels choose sheets that are a cut above. However, families are often at a loss when it comes to selecting the best bedding for their needs. Here are some factors to consider when choosing sheets worthy of five-star accommodations.
Hotel and homeowners alike recognize that thread count is an important buzzword in the world of bedding. However, it’s easy to get confused and assume a higher thread count necessarily correlates with a better-quality product. Rather than referring to the quality of threads in your bedding, thread count simply reveals the number of threads in a square inch of fabric. Unfortunately, some manufacturers mislead customers by using several strands of low-end multi-ply thread woven together rather than higher-quality single-ply thread. The end result is rougher, heavier sheets that are also less breathable.
It’s worth noting that only 800 threads can fit in a square inch of Egyptian cotton, and companies claiming to sell sheets with counts of 1000 or higher are not being truthful. For best results – and the best night’s rest – choose Egyptian cotton sheets that have been verified by the Cotton Egypt Association and seek out thread counts between around 300 and 800.
Another key factor when it comes to sheet comfort and quality, weave refers to the way threads are entwined. When it comes to Egyptian cotton sheets, customers have two choices: percale and sateen. Made with a traditional one over, one under weave, percale is a cool, crisp, fresh-feeling sheet option that resists rips and tears. In fact, it tends to outlast other options on the market. On the other hand, sateen sheets feature a one over, three or four under weave and have a sumptuously soft texture that resembles silk.
Ultimately, both percale and sateen have their advantages. However, hotels tend to choose percale over sateen for a number of reasons. In particular, the breathability of percale makes it a great choice for keeping sleepers cool and dry on even the hottest of nights. It’s a great choice for those seeking a comfortable, durable bedding product that stands the test of time.
Of course, there are few factors more important in sheet selection than the fibers used in their construction. The most luxurious hotels tend to opt for extra-long staple pure Egyptian cotton over other fabrics. Supple, strong, and highly durable, Egyptian cotton is less likely to fray and pill than other materials. It’s also known for maintaining its softness even after hundreds of trips through the wash.
Benefits of Egyptian Cotton Bedding
Hotel collection sheets tend to be made from Egyptian cotton, and for good reason. Here are just a few reasons experts think Egyptian cotton sheets are better than the alternatives:
Ask a sheet shopper about their biggest pet peeves when it comes to bedding, and we bet pilling will make the list. Referring to little balls of fabric that develop on sheets, pills are both uncomfortable and unattractive and can make it difficult to sleep with ease. One of the benefits of opting for Egyptian cotton is that the long-staple fibers produce less lint, making pilling less likely to occur.
More Breathable Weave
Hotels and homeowners also choose Egyptian cotton because of its breathability. Airy and moisture wicking, pure Egyptian cotton allows heat and sweat to pass through. That means you don’t have to worry about waking up in a pool of sweat on hot nights. Additionally, Egyptian cotton is known to help regulate body temperature, so you don’t have to worry about getting cold in winter either. In particular, Egyptian cotton sheets with a percale weave are great for keeping sleepers cozy regardless of the season.
The extra-long staple fibers used in Egyptian cotton contribute to the material’s durability. Tightly woven, Egyptian cotton lasts for years when properly maintained. As a result, it’s a great choice for hotels where bedding is subject to frequent washing and drying.
Keep Your Hotel Collection Sheets Fresh
When cared for properly, Egyptian cotton Hotel Collection sheets can last for years. To keep your bedding looking its best, we recommend pre-treating any stains with detergent and warm water prior to washing. Give the stain around half an hour to soak before rubbing it gently with your hand or a soft cloth. Take a moment to wring out excess water before putting your bedding in the washer.
Once you’re ready to launder your sheets and pillowcases, you should sort items carefully. Avoid washing your linens with jeans or other clothing items containing zippers or snaps that can abrade the high-end material of your bedding. Once the washer is full, add a mild, liquid, biodegradable detergent. For best results, add half the recommended amount of laundry soap and avoid pouring it directly on the sheets. You should also avoid using stain-removing chemicals, whiteners, softeners, or bleach, all of which can damage Egyptian cotton fibers. You can use warm or cold water, though it’s best to avoid washing in hot water.
Once you’ve washed your linens, it’s time to dry them. While line drying is the best way to prolong the lifespan of your sheets and pillowcases, the good news is that it’s safe to run Egyptian cotton through the dryer. After taking your bedding out of the wash, shake out your linens and unravel them to minimize wrinkles. If you choose to use a dryer, we recommend choosing a low-heat setting such as delicate or permanent press. Avoid overloading the dryer and aim to take out your sheets just before they’re completely dry. Doing this will help prevent wrinkles so sheets look their best.
After your sheets have been laundered, you can make the bed or put them away to be used at a later time. If you’re storing your bedding, we recommend keeping it in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area of the house. Opt to keep your Hotel Collection sheets in their complimentary Pure Parima fabric pouch or choose a sealed plastic box. The goal is to prevent yellowing and stop odors from getting in.
