Understanding Sukha microfiber sheets
Sheets can be manufactured from various fabrics: cotton, silk, bamboo, and microfiber. Unlike cotton, microfiber is a man-made fabric, and most microfiber sheets are made of polyester. Like the name suggests, microfiber sheets consist of extremely finely woven fibers with a denier that is less than 1. Denier is a unit of measure that describes the thickness of individual threads. Fabrics with a high denier will be thicker and more rugged than those with a lower denier. Fabrics with a low denier are more likely to be soft and silky. For a fabric to be considered microfiber fabric, the denier must be less than 1 which is very fine. To put this into perspective tights with a denier of 40 would be very thick, opaque, and ideal for cooler weather. Whereas hosiery that is sheer and light have a denier of 5 to 20.
The thickness of microfiber sheets isn’t measured in thread count like cotton sheets. It’s measured is GSM (grams per square meter). Typically, the GSM for microfiber sheets is between 55 and 120. Sheets with a lower GSM are thinner and lighter and those with a higher GSM are thicker and heavier.
Caring for your Sukha microfiber sheets
Microfiber sheets are very durable and can have a long lifespan as long as they’re cared for properly. If not laundered carefully, you can damage the fibers and ruin the look of these wonderful sheets. Careful attention is required to washing and drying temperatures and chemical usage. Caring for microfiber sheets at high temperatures could damage the fibres.
- Washing temperature should not exceed 160° F
- Chlorine bleach (below 12% solution) can be used
- Drying temperature should stay below 140° F and it’s recommended to remove the sheets from the dryer when the drying cycle is complete to prevent them from staying in contact with the hot metal drum for an extended period of time
- Reduce the drying cycle time. Microfiber sheets are lighter and require less time and energy to dry. Over-drying may increase static electricity
- Avoid the use of fabric softeners since they can leave residue. Liquid softeners and dryer sheets will coat the fabric, which reduces absorbency
- Do not iron
