Cachia’s Guide for Comfy Sleepwear Fabrics

As we settle into our nightly routines, the fabric of our sleepwear becomes more than just material – it’s a key element for ensuring a restful night’s sleep.

Here at CACHIA, we recognise the importance of selecting the best possible fabric for our sleepwear to guarantee comfort, cosiness and unrestricted movement throughout the night.

We’ve listed some of our favourite choices, along with the qualities that make them stand out as the best bedtime fabrics.


As a natural fibre, 100% cotton produces a fabric that excels in comfort and versatility. Renowned for its softness, breathability and resistance to clinging, cotton pyjamas guarantee a cosy night’s sleep. Its natural antibacterial properties cater to those with sensitive skin or allergies, providing a hypoallergenic barrier. Cotton is not only sustainable and biodegradable but also holds its structure well over time, ensuring durability wash after wash. While it may take a bit longer to dry, its absorbent nature ensures sweat and moisture is controlled, promoting a dry and comfortable sleeping environment. Cotton pyjamas are optimal for both summer and winter wear, thanks to their ability of providing insulation in cooler temperatures and remaining breathable and cool in warmer weather. It is evident why 100% cotton pyjamas are an essential addition to any sleepwear collection!
