Men’s Sleepwear Fabrics
Pajama sets and separates are typically made of cotton, because cotton is breathable, soft and comfortable to wear. However, since cotton can eventually stretch and wear out, some pajamas are made of cotton blends for added resiliency and durability.
Polyester fleece is an extremely cozy fabric often used in cold-weather pajama sets and one-pieces. Its synthetic nature makes it a highly durable, resilient and long lasting.
Polyester is often mixed with cotton and spandex for comfortable sleepwear that is structured and form fitting. Polyester also adds durability to natural fabrics, helping them retain their original feel and shape for longer periods.
Jersey is a lightweight knit fabric that maintains its shape. Pajamas are often made from cotton jersey, which is a knit fabric made with cotton fibre. You get the comfort and breathability of cotton with the added strength and durability of jersey knit.
Satin is a type of weave that produces the shiny appearance and smooth feel of silk. Your choice of materials includes silk, polyester, acetate, nylon and rayon. Satin clothing is durable and long lasting, though it may appear delicate. Choose satin for elegant sleepwear that you can sleep in comfortable and wear on special social occasions in the home.
Linen is used mostly for summer sleepwear as it’s a very light and breathable. Linen garments tend to hang loose off the body and typically aren’t blended with any synthetics so you won’t find any elasticity in this material.
Flannel is the classic winter pajama fabric. Soft, cozy and breathable, flannel is a natural, thick cotton fabric that will keep you warm when the temperature drops, without making you feel stuffy or sweaty.
