1. Linen bedding
Linen is back in fashion and so are linen pillowcases and duvet covers. Linen is a wonderful material that is even at its most beautiful unironed. It also offers many other advantages. Which ones, you ask? Discover them here!
Linen bedding is very easy to maintain. There is no need to iron these duvet covers after washing, because linen looks best unironed, highlighting its natural look. In addition to regular linen duvet covers, you can also go for ‘crushed linen’ bedding. This linen fabric is treated after it is woven, permanently leaving a slight crease in the fabric, even after washing. Highly recommended if you like a nonchalant chic style in the bedroom.
So if you’re looking for crease-free bedding, don’t go for a linen duvet cover. Linen is a non-iron fabric, but it is not crease-free. But that is exactly its charm! We offer linen bedding in many different colours and sizes. Discover the linen bedding by the Belgian brand Verilin here.
2. Jersey cotton duvet cover
Another non-iron duvet cover material is jersey cotton. Jersey is actually not a material. It refers to the way the material (in this case cotton) is processed. Jersey cotton is actually knitted cotton.
The main advantage of jersey cotton duvet covers - often called ‘stretch cotton’ because of their stretchability - is that they do not crease, so there’s no need to iron them. We work with the brand Mikmax for our jersey cotton duvet covers. This Spanish brand embraces the Mediterranean spirit: high-quality materials, simplicity and respect for origins. The Mikmak non-iron bedding is made from the best quality knitted cotton and is available in various subtle colours. These duvet covers are wonderfully soft, warm and cosy, and very suitable for sensitive skin.
3. Seersucker duvet cover
A seersucker duvet cover does not need ironing either. But what exactly is seersucker?
Seersucker is a thin cotton fabric with a wavy structure and a casual chic look. This fabric has been around for centuries, so its origin is uncertain. Its name is said to come from the Persian words ‘sir’ and ‘shakar’, meaning milk and sugar, which refer to the similarity of the substance with the smooth structure of milk, combined with the granular structure of sugar.
Seersucker fabric features a weave with longer and shorter yarns. Once woven, the fabric is shrunk, creating the ‘puckered’ structure. Seersucker, or ‘crépon soda’ in French, was once used mainly for men’s summer suits. This 100% cotton fabric stays wonderfully fresh, which also makes it ideal for summer duvet covers.
The seersucker fabric is easy to wash, does not have to be ironed and always remains wonderfully soft. Discover the non-iron 100% cotton seersucker bedding by Lexington in our shop!
4. Flannel duvet cover
Do you often feel cold and are you not a big fan of ironing? Then flannel bedding is just what you need.
The flannel duvet covers in our shop are all made from 100% cotton. This cotton is roughened, which creates a thin and fluffy layer. The thin layer not only makes flannel feel soft to the touch, it also ensures it retains heat better. Since flannel duvet covers are made of 100% cotton, they are still breathable and moisture-absorbent, so you will not perspire under them.
Thanks to the way it is woven and the thin top layer, there is no need to iron a flannel duvet cover. The only disadvantage? Flannel is so wonderfully soft that you would want to sleep under it all year round. Unfortunately, it is only suitable for the winter and autumn months. In summer and spring, flannel often feels far too warm. We have different brands of flannel bedding in our range.
Please note that during the summer and spring months, we do not have flannel in stock, but all products are available upon order. Feel free to contact us for more information!
5. Polycotton duvet cover
If you’re looking for a non-iron duvet cover, chances are you’ve heard about polycotton duvet covers. Polycotton is a mix of cotton and polyester fibre. As polycotton duvet covers are not made from 100% cotton, they are a lot cheaper than other alternatives.
However, we have consciously not included them in our range, as polycotton bedding is less breathable, and absorbs and discharges less moisture, so it makes you sweat more. All the bedding in our shop is made exclusively from natural materials.
