Walker Reid Soft Striped Cotton Long Sleeve Tailored Pyjamas
This high-quality luxury 200gsm soft double brushed cotton traditonal tailored style pyjama set comes with a classy moder stripe design and nice comfy relaxed fit. The top is full button for ease of putting on and taking of, and has a useful patch pocket. To add a subtle extra touch of class, the trouser and arm cuffs have a hem with a stripe at 90° to the main vertical stripes. Unlike some other pyjamas this set has a seam free back, cheaper garments usually always have a seem running down the back and this can create irritation and even bed sores.
But what is brushed cotton? Back in the day it was also known as winceyette, and people of a certain age will remember the soft cosy colourful stripey sheets. Basically, as the name suggests, during the process of creating the fabric, the cotton is brushed on the face side to remove any lint and fibres. This process leaves a soft face that helps to trap heat, but still being breathable. Being a natural product, cotton is also an eco-friendly material to choose.
What is gsm? It stands for grams per square and represents the weight of a fabric, usually the higher the number, the thicker/denser and warmer the fabric is. As a rule the industry says that a lightweight fabric is between 30 and 150gsm, medium between 150 and 350gsm, and above this is, you guessed it, heavy weight.
Slenderella cotton garments are made from combed cotton which is far superior to the carded cotton that is usually used in cheaper garments, combed cotton will only shrink by 2% and will not twist, whereas carded will twist, with shrinkage of about 15%.
Being cotton the garment will shrink a bit, and this should be taken into account, if it is washed too hot it will shrink a lot, cotton will only shrink a lot due to excessive heat.
