Easy care fabrics are low maintenance, maintain their fabric structure in spite of being worn or washed and require minimum to no ironing.
Fabrics that are promoted as “easy care” often have a finishing process applied to improve the crease recovery and smooth drying potential. When applied well, this type of finishing process will enhance the fabric and it will wear well over time. Be aware that some companies coat their fabrics with chemical agents so that they can be promoted as “easy-care”. In time, you will find that this finish will wash out and as the finish wears away, the sheets won’t launder well and will become rough and pill.
