Choosing the right bed linen is influenced by several factors. The material is one of them. Cotton and lyocell are two of the most popular fabrics for bed sheets. Choosing the right sheets for you should be easy knowing the difference between the two:
Lyocell sheets feel smooth and soft from the very beginning and after washing, while cotton sheets feel crisp after wash and need some time to soften.
Compared to cotton, lyocell is 50% more moisture absorbing which means lyocell sheets are more breathable, cooler, and friendlier to the skin than cotton. This also means that lyocell reduces the development of bacteria, needing less washes than cotton sheets.
Lyocell sheets are wrinkle resistant while cotton sheets are not, so choosing lyocell bed linen means more time for you to relax instead of spending endless hours ironing.
