The Fabric Guide to Robe Sets

 

Robes don’t have a certain season, it’s always the season for robes. Don’t hesitate when thinking about purchasing a new robe set. However, there’s mainly one major thing to take into consideration, and that is the fabric of the robe. There are A LOT of fabrics to choose from; following are some of them.

 

Silk and Satin:

These materials usually give the sensation of luxury and romance which is quite right. Robes made of silk or satin are a good option as lounge wear because they’re so light and easy to move in.

 

Cotton Waffle:

This material is entirely made of cotton and it got its name from its special diamond patterns. It’s ideal when you want a robe to be absorbent because it dries up quickly.

 

Cotton Terry:

Cotton terry gives the robe a heavier and warmer appeal due to its thick and uncut loops. Towels and bathrobes are usually made of this material because it’s highly absorbent.  

 

Wool:

Wool is a good robe material to wear in colder weather. It provides a warm sensation especially after taking a shower. However, it can get pretty heavy when wet, but if it’s mixed with other materials, it can become lighter and more practical.

 

Flannel:

Flannel is soft to touch and warm; hence, it’s recommended to be worn in colder weather. Robe sets made of flannel are classics and widely used for bathrobes in particular.

 

Cashmere:

Cashmere robe sets are quite expensive purchases, but they’re usually of great quality. If you feel like pampering yourself and getting luxuries, this is your go-to material. Cashmere is better as a lounge wear rather than a bathrobe because it’s light but does not have absorbing qualities.
