Slenderella Ladies Soft Yarn Dyed Brushed Cotton Traditional Tailored Grey Check Pyjama Set
Slenderella Grey and Cream Soft Yarn Dyed Brushed Cotton Check Ladies Pyjamas
This high-quality luxury yarn dyed brushed cotton pyjama set comes with a beautiful, classy check design. This set is based on the traditional tailored look with some nice details, you will notice that the trouser and sleeve cuffs have the material at a 45° to the main part the top of which is trimmed with satin beading. It has a useful patch pocket that is the same material but again set at an angle and with satin beading which has also been added to the collars and front edging. The trousers have an elasticated waist for ease of use. 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.
Being yarn dyed the check pattern shows on both sides, this is because different colour yarns are used to create the fabric rather than a pattern being added to a fabric after it has been woven. Yarn dyed is more favoured, but with the added complexity of its manufacture, it is not as common and more expensive.
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.
Slenderella have advised that this is a medium weight cotton with a weight of 180GSM.
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 have advised the below for sizing:
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.
The model shown is 5' 7" and a UK size 10, see the last image for further sizing details.
