Organic Bedding: A Guide To Our Fabrics
Our organic bedding comes in three fabrics. See below for an explanation of each fabric and its benefits.
Organic Cotton Percale
Percale is the most classic of our bedding fabrics. It is a cotton fabric made through a one-over, one-under weaving method that creates a tight, smooth and matte fabric – similar to a crisp cotton shirt. Percale’s smoothness and perfectly balanced weight make it a good choice for all seasons, but it’s particularly good in the spring and autumn.

Organic Cotton Jersey
Jersey is a cotton fabric that is knitted rather than woven, which gives it a T-shirt like softness and a relaxed structure. Jersey bedding is great in the colder months as it is warm to touch and the flexibility of the fabric means it lies close to the skin, keeping out any chills. These qualities, along with jersey’s incredible softness, create a really cosy sleep environment that you will not want to get out of.

Linen comes from the flax plant, which is a highly sustainable plant that grows mostly in northern Europe. It produces a beautiful fabric with a unique texture created by the slubbiness (i.e. irregular thickness) of its threads. These give it a slightly crumpled look that is both elegant and down to earth. Despite its slubby texture, linen is very soft and becomes more so with use. Our collection has been through a special ‘washing’ process using enzymes, which makes it particularly soft.
Linen is a highly absorbent fabric and conducts heat away from the skin, so it is the perfect bedding fabric for hot summer months.
