Quilts are undoubtedly one of the best investments you can make for your bed. However, they are also one of those that are hard to get right. It doesn’t matter what your sleeping pattern is, how you like to sleep, what’s your sleeping style, etc., you have to have a quilt. And, there is one more thing. There is always a quilt for every person. This is the reason it is mandatory that you consider the weight and the quality of the product while buying. Some people like their quilts, heavy, while others want them to be light and feathery. It does not mean that the quilt you bought last time wasn’t proper. It just means that it isn’t as per your taste and liking. So, how to choose what fits your choice? Let’s take a loot at some of the best quilt option and their pros and cons.
If we have to describe the importance of wool quilts in a phrase that would be ‘Weight & Warmth’. Wool fibres have the tendency to eliminate the humidity and absorb the body moisture. This means that during the summers and warmer months, you won’t feel hot even with the quilt on. This point can be the one, which gives 500gsm wool quilt a quite winning edge over the others. Due to this fibre, the air is also trapped easily, so in the months when the air is chilly, you stay warm and nice. When it comes to the advantages of wool quilts, is quite apparent that they are a natural insulator, making them feasible to be used throughout the year. When it is winters, they will evenly distribute the warmth across your body and in summer, they will absorb the body moisture to make you feel less hot. If you are something like us and care about the environment deeply, then there is good news for you here. Wool, as we all might know, is non-flammable and environment friendly as well. Not just this, but it looks neat and tidy when tailored as per the bed size and the soiled areas can easily be cleaned as well. You see, no hard work there, and good for daily use.
Cotton is one of those materials that is commonly used for every sort of fabric around the world. It is widely known for the softness, durability, reliability and obviously the comfort. When you compare cotton to the other quilt materials, it is considered much cooler. Comparing it to the other synthetic materials, cotton is lighter, thinner and breathes more efficiently. One thing we need to make clear here is that cotton quilts come in different weights, but they are considered a cooler product generally. This implies that they are normally mass-produced as a summer material for all those who prefer light-warmth while choosing their quilts. As far as the good points of cotton quilts are considered, the nature fibre is easily machine washable. You don’t have to make runs to the dryer every time there is even a simple stain. Similarly, they are also non-allergenic, which means they are ideal for all those who have allergies or even psoriasis. Even if you perspire a lot, cotton quilts will give you a good night’s sleep because they draw away the moisture easily. All in all, these quilts will be a suitable option for all those who are more into staying away from the quilts. All you need to do is follow the instructions that come along and you will be good to use them for quite some time. Depending on the brand, you will be able to wash them by hand and machine, as mentioned above.
Synthetic Polyester Quilts:
The synthetic polyester quilts are majorly suitable for those who have allergies. They are easily cleaned and have anti-bacterial capabilities, which makes them suitable for those who have any sort of problems. They are also a low-cost option and are extremely soft and light. We would highly recommend these quilts for children, as they are lightweight and will be preferable to use by them. Furthermore, children do have the habit of soiling clothing a lot, so synthetic quilts won’t be a hassle for you to wash.
