We think much about the pillow and try to figure out whether it is soft, firm, or too hard. However, have we ever thought about how to protect the pillows? Yes, we do not and that is the reason we neglect to buy the ideal pillowcase. We think of it as a part of the bedding and buy it without thinking about the protection that it will offer to the pillow and also to our skin. So, let us see how we can buy soft pillowcases for our use.
THINK ABOUT THE FABRIC
As with bed sheets, pillowcases come in various fabrics. It is possible to buy pillowcases that are made of synthetic or natural fabrics. At first, you might be tempted to buy a satin or polyester pillowcase due to its softness. However, what we forget is that these fabrics are not breathable. Moreover, they are more prone to wear and tear and you will find them difficult to maintain. If you select 100% cotton pillowcases of our you will be having the best alternative to satin and polyester ones. By making such a selection you are choosing a fabric that is breathable, luxurious, and natural. It is also easier to maintain a cotton pillowcase rather than a satin or polyester one. So, we at Feather & Stitch New York feel that it is wise to buy a cotton pillowcase rather than opting for any other fabric. We also suggest buying a cotton pillowcase as that will make you comfortable sleeping properly.
SIZE OF THE PILLOWCASES
You have by now made up your mind to buy a cotton pillowcase. The next thing that you need to consider about the cotton pillowcases that you are buying from us is the size of the same. If you already have purchased a pillow the pillowcase needs to be ideal to cover the entire pillow. There are four sizes of pillows that you can use in the USA. So, be mindful of the size of the pillowcase and that should be according to the size of the pillow that you have already purchased. If you have not purchased a pillow and have a pillowcase, you need to buy a pillow that fits well inside the pillowcase that you have purchased from us.
SHAMS AND CLOSURES
It is now ideal to think about the details as you have already considered the fabric and size. We often get confused about pillowcases and shams. We sometimes buy shams in place of pillowcases. They both cover the pillows but are different in appearance. Pillowcases have an opening on one side and no extra fabric around the edges. However, shams come usually finished on all four sides and have an opening at the back. There are various types of closures for shams and you can buy one that you desire. However, when you are out to buy a pillowcase do not buy a sham.
