8. HyggeB OriBamboo

FAQ: Best Bedsheet in Singapore
Where to buy a bedsheet in Singapore?
You used to only be able to buy a bedsheet in Singapore in retail stores, but now you can purchase them online for the ultimate convenience and even enjoy discounted prices! Shopee and Lazada are my go-to for bedding products. It is also a great place to compare the price of bedsheets in Singapore.
What factors should I consider when buying bed sheets in Singapore?
Though cotton is one of the most popular and affordable bed sheet materials, there are plenty of options to consider, depending on what type of sleeper you are. For cotton, Egyptian cotton is the highest quality cotton available in bed sheets and is usually made with an extra-long staple. American Pima cotton, a long staple, is still high quality, soft, and known for its durability and strength.
Tencel is made from the wood pulp of the eucalyptus tree and is environmental-friendly while being naturally anti-microbial. I highly recommend Tencel having experienced the luxurious material for a great sleep!
Silk, a luxurious bedding material, is cool and sensuous for a lavish sleeping experience. Silk is also hypoallergenic, which is great for allergy sufferers. The only downside is you’re probably going to pay quite a fair bit for silk sheets, and silk is extremely delicate, so wash them extremely carefully!
Bamboo is an eco-friendly option and is pretty soft and durable. Moreover, it sleeps quite cool with high breathability due to its light weave.
Linen. What’s great about linen sheets is that they have a distinct, luxurious texture. Linen is one of the more environmentally friendly options due to its long lifespan and its construction from flax seeds, which are considered a renewable resource. It is very breathable and excellent for people with sensitive skin.
For more comprehensive coverage of the various materials for bed sheets, check out The Sleep Judge for more information.
2. Thread count
People generally assume that a higher thread count is always better. In fact, the material is actually more important, though thread count does make some difference when comparing bedsheets of the same material. You just want to make sure that there is a high enough thread count to create a proper weave for durability, so a thread count above 250 or higher should be good enough, while 500 and higher will generally be really soft and most long-lasting.
3. Staple length
Generally, the longer the staple, the higher the quality of the cotton, and these bedsheets will generally be softer and more durable. Egyptian cotton is usually made with extra-long staples with incredible softness and durability. Pima features a long staple, while American Upland features a short staple.
There are several types of weaves for bed sheets in Singapore. Sateen creates a lush, silky feel and is probably the most durable out of the common weaves. Though it tends to be heavier and works better for people who prefer a slightly warmer sleeping environment.
Percale is a light weave usually used in higher quality cotton, perfect for those who prefer a cool sleeping environment.
Flannel is constructed with a plain or twill weave and is decently soft to the touch.
Jersey knit, either made of cotton or a cotton/synthetic blend, is knitted instead of woven. This is preferable for those who get cold at night and prefer something warm.
How should I wash my luxurious bed sheets?
Now that you own an expensive, luxurious set of bed sheets, it is extremely important that you take good care of them during the wash. Otherwise, they may degrade considerably in quality. Trust us, you don’t want that to happen as we experienced that ourselves. Follow these steps closely to preserve the top-notch quality of those ridiculously comfortable sheets:
1. Wash with cold water
Wash your bed sheet with cold water. Higher temperatures can weaken fabric fibers over time. You should only use lukewarm water if you are doing heavy-duty washing. For example, soiled bedsheets or getting rid of allergens.
2. Use delicate detergents to extend the lifespan of textile
Not all detergents are the same and do not use bleach and softeners. Yes, that’s right, no softeners! Sounds counterintuitive, but these chemicals actually damage fabric fibers and wash out colours. Some of the usual commercial brands also contain small amounts of bleach, so do check the ingredients within. Delicate and biodegradable detergents are recommended to extend the lifespan of the textile.
3. Wash your bedsheet inside out
Washing your bedsheet inside out helps to reduce abrasive movements, which contributes to wear and tear. If you have a laundry bag, even better, use it! Do wash them separately from another laundry as well.
4. Set gentler and shorter cycles for your washing machine
Do not simply use any preset on your washing machine. Instead, choose the gentlest and shortest cycle to ensure that your bedsheets are kept at the highest quality. On my washing machine, I select cold water, 400rpm, and just 1 rinse for a gentler and shorter cycle.
5. Hang dry if possible
For best results, hang dry and keep out of sunlight. UV rays can cause colours to fade in textiles. If you have no choice but to use a dryer, do remove your fabrics right after the dryer is done. Leaving it in causes your fabrics to bake in the heat. As a result, they lose moisture in their fibers and become brittle and wrinkly.
Your bedsheets are more than just fabric; they’re the gateway to a peaceful and rejuvenating night’s sleep. By considering the material, thread count, and personal preferences, you can now transform your bedroom into a haven of comfort and style. From the soft embrace of cotton to the luxurious allure of tencel, we hope that this article helped you make informed choices for your bedroom oasis.
