Materials Used for Hypoallergenic Sheets
Cotton is naturally hypoallergenic, making this material a suitable choice for people who want their immediate sleep environment to be free from irritants. Organic cotton sheets are manufactured without strong chemicals so you won’t be exposed to the strong substances that can trigger allergy symptoms. Hypoallergenic cotton sheets are strong and durable so they can be depended on to last for a long time without considerable damage even with continuous use.
The breathable nature of cotton makes it extremely difficult for bacteria to grow or stay on the surface of the sheets because these organisms thrive in warm and damp environments. Air is allowed to pass freely through the sheets to promote a comfortably cool sensation and prevent heat buildup.
Easy to Wash
Cotton sheets can conveniently be machine washed using warm water unless specified to the contrary in the manufacturer’s instructions. The high temperature of the water helps in eliminating allergens, germs, dust mites, and bacteria.
Soft and Gentle to the Skin
High-quality cotton such as Egyptian cotton is used in its pure form, without being combined with other materials that sacrifice its natural hypoallergenic properties. This results in luxuriously soft sheets that will feel gentle and welcoming even on dry, rough skin to promote peaceful nights of sleep.
Cotton sheets come in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and types of cotton used. This results in a product selection that offers something for virtually any budget range. Cotton sheets are some of the most affordable hypoallergenic sheets available, allowing you to keep your sleep environment free from common allergens without the need to spend too much.
Cotton sheets are breathable, but they do not wick away moisture. Sweat will not be drawn away from the surface of the sheets so you will most likely still feel the clammy and sticky sensation even hours after sleeping. This can result in an uncomfortable feeling that can rudely interrupt a deep sleep experience.
Can Feel Crisp at First
Cotton tends to feel crisp at first before eventually softening further as time passes. This may be an issue for those who want to enjoy the supreme softness from the first time the bedding is used.
