Soft, smooth, breathable quality
Reviewed in the United States on June 25, 2019
The out-of-box experience for these BIOWEAVES pillowcases is impeccable and luxurious but without wastefulness. Nearly all the packaging appears to be 100% recycled paper and textile fibers, and I appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into the packaging design.
The fabric itself is of very high quality and is soft, smooth, breathable, zero odor, and usable right out of the box. No annoying extra loose threads to clean up, and no chemical odor at all from the manufacturing process.
The breathability of the fabric is very important to me as one of the most important factors affecting comfort. A lower thread count helps in this regard, but even with a relatively low 300 thread count, these pillowcases are extremely soft, supple, smooth, and comfortable. Finally, the generous fit over a standard sized pillow helps with breathability and prevents the pillow from bunching up under a too-tight-fitting pillowcase.
My only complaint about these pillowcases is that they are "bag style" cases (with a long, open end on one of the short edges) and not the "french back" style (with an "envelope" closure on one of the short edges) which gives a neater, more finished look to the pillow. Perhaps BIOWEAVES will consider offering such an option in the future!
