Toronto-based Fine Cotton Factory is introducing its first knitted top-of-bed collection that incorporates apparel-grade yarns, which allow for more stretch and breathability. The products are designed to enhance the sleep surface performance of mattresses on adjustable bases.
The company’s new private label top-of-bed line includes a set of sheets, a duvet and a coverlet, which can be bundled or sold individually. The sets are made with GOTS-certified organic cotton, Tencel and micro modal fibers, as well as 50-50 basic polyester.
Drawing from its heritage in the fashion industry, Fine Cotton’s top-of-bed sheets are knitted and incorporate spandex, an elastic recovery fiber, to allow for more comfort when consumers toss and turn in bed. Elasticity is a particularly important feature for adjustable bed bases.
“There are numerous benefits to using a knitted bed sheet as compared to a woven product. Take an adjustable base for example — when a base is adjusted, woven fitted sheets tend to pop off,” said Skip Kann, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Fine Cotton Factory. “With our knitted bed sheets, especially ones that incorporate spandex, you don’t have to worry about the sheets pulling off the mattress, because our sheet stretches and moves with the foundation and the sleeper.”
For specialty beds incorporating latex, the knitted sheets promote better air flow and allow the sleeper to get the full benefit of the latex because of the stretch, according to a news release.
“When a consumer purchases a latex mattress and covers it with a woven sheet, they are essentially defeating the purpose of the comfort dollars they have spent on the latex. Our knitted sheets allow consumers the full benefit of a latex mattress – breathability and comfort while sleeping – something a woven sheet cannot provide,” Kann said. “We believe our sheets are the perfect accessory to elevate the performance of any specialty sleep bed.”
Fine Cotton Factory is producing the top-of-bed line under private label for its retail and manufacturer customers. Kann said the company can dye the sheets to customer specifications thanks to its 150,000-square-foot dyeing and finishing facility. The textiles manufacturer specializes in eco-friendly knits for the North American market in both the home furnishings and apparel industries.
