Winter Cotton Sleepwear

Starting with brushed cotton. An incredibly popular fabric choice for nightgowns in the cooler months. So what is brushed cotton? Well, brushed cotton is when a wire brush is stroked along the surface of the fabric to raises the fibres. This creates a fuzzy texture that is soft to the touch. Its softness and added thickness from the raised fibres makes it ideal for autumn and winter sleepwear because of the added warmth it provides. The brushing process is typically only on one surface of the fabric making it ideal as a mid weight material.
