The annual "Black Friday" has undoubtedly become a national shopping carnival. Many brands will be in the "Black Friday" to a wave of sincere love promotion, many prices will be the lowest of the year. Today let's talk about the purchase of bed sets, silk quilts, mattresses and other bedding, I believe that no matter which channel to buy, the following strategy is applicable and practical.
What should I pay attention to when buying bedding?
1.Look at the certificate of conformity / product parameters
There are norms can not be fancy words to package, can quickly understand the true face of the bed; in the product quality law is clear, the sale of goods must have a product certificate of conformity, if you buy a product without a certificate of conformity label, you can pay attention to, it is illegal.
2.Look at the material composition description
Cotton, silk, linen, silk wool and other natural materials more skin-friendly, higher prices; in the top of each bed will have a durability label, that is, the ingredient trademark, which is clearly stipulated in the product standards must have, the ingredient trademark marked the product model, fabric or filling material and maintenance instructions. If there is no such mark, then this product should not be purchased.
3.Moderate count is the best
More than 40 counts of quality is good, the pursuit of more than 60 counts can be selected. Remember that there are "high count" to have "high density"; plain, twill, satin, jacquard, grade by grade.
Sometimes there is no way to judge the bedding good or bad with the naked eye, but look at the label on the bedding, it provides a good way to judge. Rough workmanship, poor quality or non-standard business, will not pay attention to these details.
What parameters should I know about selecting bedding?
Bedding is the most intimate contact with our skin household goods, in the selection of the time, the choice of fabric is particularly important.
Generally on the market we can see the following fabrics: cotton fabrics, linen fabrics, polyester fabrics, wool fabrics, silk fabrics.
Cotton fabric is the most common bedding is also the most applicable a fabric, cotton breathability, moisture absorption is very good, summer use breathable and cool, skin-friendly non-irritating; winter use is not easy to static electricity, cost-effective.
Linen is a plant fiber, has a good moisture absorption effect, at the same time can effectively inhibit the growth of bacteria.
This fabric is not easy to tear, suitable for summer use, can play the role of breathable, relatively cool.
The biggest advantage of polyester fabric is its high strength and many color choices.
Also the elasticity of this fabric is very good, but unfortunately his moisture absorption is not very good, and easy to pilling, summer cover is too hot for winter.
Brushed wool fabric softness, insulation and comfort are very good, not easy to pilling, winter use is very suitable.
But if easy to have wool off cause allergies.
Silk fabrics are skin-friendly and delicate, feel very good, comfortable and breathable, very comfortable for summer use.
But the price is high, while easy to break.
2.Count and density
The factors that determine the comfort of bedding, in addition to the fabric, there are count and density.
In simple terms, one gram of cotton is made into 30 yarns of one meter in length, which is 30 counts; made into 40 yarns of one meter in length, which is 40 counts, and so on.
The higher the count, the finer each yarn, the thinner the fabric, the more soft and delicate, more comfortable.The general bedding count is in the range of 30-60 counts.
Density refers to the number of warp and weft yarns arranged in a unit area, that is, the sum of the number of horizontal and vertical yarns in a unit area.
Several common densities such as 110*90, 128*68, 65*78, 133*73, indicate that the warp yarns per square inch are 110, 128, 65 and 133 respectively; the weft yarns are 90, 68, 78 and 73 respectively.
The same density, the higher count is better, but it does not mean that the higher the count and density is the better.
Selection must be combined with both to consider, otherwise the fabric breathability is poor, cover up very heavy, very uncomfortable.
General 60 count fabric density in about three hundred is a better choice.
3.Textile technology and printing and dyeing process
The good or bad of the textile process and bedding four-piece set durability and comfort have a close relationship.
We are more common textile technology are plain, twill and satin these three.
We can see from the figure below, plain weave, warp and weft yarns are interwoven in turn, this weave out of the fabric is flat and wear-resistant, but the count is relatively low. Twill weave warp and weft yarn two in turn cross, this weave feel more soft, while the density is higher.
The warp and weft yarns in satin weave are the three crosses in sequence, and the best hand feel and highest fabric density in all three. These three weaves are also used in order from low count to high count fabrics.
