Jersey __ Jersey bed sheets are often sold as "tee_shirt sheets," as they are the same type of knit cotton or cotton_blend fibers that are used in the ubiquitous clothing item. Jersey sheets are very popular with kids and teens, thanks to the stretchy and soft feel, but they rip or snag easily, so keep the family cat off the bed if you want to avoid holes.
When shopping for new bed sheets or other bedding items, it's helpful to not only be familiar with the various types of fabrics and fibers, but also to understand the different weaves. What does percale mean? Is sateen the same as satin? What's microfiber? The answers aren't complicated, but knowing them makes it easier to choose the perfect bedding for your needs, whether that's warm sheets for winter, lightweight sheets for summer, or a duvet, sham or throw pillow. Here are brief descriptions of the most common weaves and fabrics you are likely to encounter.
