Waffle Quilt Covers

What is a waffle quilt?

Waffle quilts are usually 100% cotton or cotton and linen quilts, made in waffle cotton weave. The “waffle” comes from the fact that this weave looks like a waffle we usually have for breakfast.


What is the purpose of waffle weave?

Waffle weave has a unique texture, and if made 100% from natural materials, very breathable thermal properties. Its honeycomb-like pattern creates pockets of air, providing excellent insulation and breathability. 


Is waffle knit durable?

When made of cotton or linen, the waffle weave creates a kind of a robust textile, but very durable because it won’t tear or wear easily. It will be easy to wash and dry, just like any cotton quilt.


What sizes do waffle quilt covers come in?

Waffle quilt covers come in standard bed sizes: twin, full/double, queen, and king. Some manufacturers may offer additional sizes, such as mega king, to accommodate various bed dimensions.


What materials are used in waffle quilt covers?

Waffle quilt covers are commonly made from natural fibers like cotton or linen, but we can still find them in synthetic materials like polyester. 


How do I care for a waffle quilt cover?

Most waffle quilt covers can be machine washed in cold water with a mild detergent on a gentle cycle. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals. Additionally, tumble drying on low heat or air drying is preferable to preserve the integrity of the natural materials and prevent shrinkage. 

Are waffle quilt covers hypoallergenic?

Whether waffle quilt covers are hypoallergenic depends on the materials used. Natural fibers like cotton and linen are generally hypoallergenic and suitable for individuals with allergies or sensitive skin. Still, some waffle quilt covers can contain synthetic fibers or dyes that could trigger allergies in some individuals. 

If hypoallergenic properties are important to you, consider choosing a waffle quilt cover made from certified organic or hypoallergenic materials, and always check the product description or label for the used dye.
