Jersey cotton: T-shirt or Bedding

Why not both? Jersey fabric is knit rather than woven, giving it a soft and slightly stretchy feeling. Think of the comfortable, soft texture of an old cotton T-shirt: that’s what Jersey sheets will feel like. They are cosy, casual and easy to care for.

 

The fabric is lightweight and very soft and is a very good alternative to regular cotton sheets which are woven. The stretch cotton was first used in clothing like tee shirts where you need the material to be flexible and regain its shape once pulled over your head, regular cotton would not give in this way and would not be as comfortable.

You get a good idea of how Jersey Cotton is good for bedding just look at your socks, how they stretch over your feet and go back to their original shape when you take them off no matter how times you do it.
