This guide will explain the difference between cotton filled and polyester filled bedding sets. Cotton filled quilts are typically more expensive because of the added skill required in making the quilts. 100% cotton quilts are normally heavier than polyester filled quilts because polyester is a less dense fiber. Because of the lighter weight, polyester has more "holes" with which to retain heat. For this reason, polyester quilts are lighter and can be warmer than 100% cotton quilts.
