Microfibers are microscopic synthetic fibers of polyester and polyamide that are often 100 times thinner than the width of a human hair. This lends microfibers an extraordinary smoothness and a velvety texture that makes them ideal for making beddings and sheets.
Microfibers have often been called the fabric of the future. They can be made to give the feel of suede, cotton, or silk synthetically. They are extremely strong and almost impossible to tear during normal day to day use, and they retain their shape even if you wash them several hundred times a day.
In other words, any fabric created out of microfibers will be softer, smoother, durable, lighter, and more breathable than that made from the highest quality natural materials. These are great for those suffering from allergies as they are synthetic in nature.
In fact, the non-allergic nature of microfiber sheets and beddings has created a sort of mini revolution in the life of allergy sufferers. Dust mites, pollen grains, and other allergy causing substances often get locked up inside the fibers of natural materials such as cotton or silk. Since the fibers of microfiber sheets and beddings are extremely tiny, these allergens cannot get trapped inside, making the lives of allergy patients a lot easier.
Microfiber fabrics can be woven into almost any shape or form, from beddings, to microfiber sheets, to pillow covers, comforters, couch upholstery, curtains, and even cleaning mops.
Microfiber sheets tend to be extremely soft and lightweight. These can be double sided, which, in this economy, will help stretch your dollar. They are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns and can be washed very easily in a standard washing machine. They do cost a bit more than regular cotton sheets, but provide a lot of value for money.
If you are looking for a material that will simply make you go “wow” and help bring your bedroom to life, look no further than a microfiber sheet.
