How To Distinguish The Fabric Of Dakimakura?

You have already decided on your favorite anime girl and now you want to buy a dakimakura as a present to yourself or someone else, but how do you actually choose the right dakimakura? There are many types of fabrics out there and they are not all the same quality or feel. This guide will show you how to distinguish the fabric of dakimakura and what to look out for when shopping online or in an offline store.

 

Buying Guide For Dakimakura

Dakimakura is a popular item of Japanese culture that has its origins in body pillows. It is often translated to hugging pillow in English. They are often used as a representation of the person’s ideal partner or lover, and they allow people to experience physical closeness with someone they may not be able to touch normally. Since there are so many options on the market, it can be difficult to find one that suits your needs. Here are some ways you can tell what kind of material your dakimakura is made from by looking at the tag!

1) Synthetic materials include polyester, cotton, rayon, and microfiber.

2) Polyester-based dakimakura are durable, but their fuzzy texture makes them less comfortable than other types of synthetic materials like cotton.

3) Cotton-based dakimakura feel soft and comforting, but they are more expensive than other synthetic materials like polyester.

4) Rayon-based dakimakura feel very soft and comfortable like cotton, but these types of fabric have an increased risk of pilling over time.

5) Microfiber-based dakimakura usually offer a balance between comfort and durability for an affordable price point.

6) Polyester/cotton blends provide the best features from both worlds: cost effectiveness with great comfort!

 

Material #1: Polyester Filling

Polyester filling is the most popular option for dakimakura covers. Polyester has a coarser weave than cotton and does not have as much loft, making it more durable. Polyesters are also much cheaper than other options.

Polyesters are not made from natural fibers, so they do not breathe as well as cotton and can be hotter to sleep on during warmer seasons of the year. Polyester filling will also deteriorate faster if you wash your dakimakura often or live in a humid climate.

Polyester filling is easy to find and is one of the least expensive choices for fabric, but be aware that polyester can’t hold up over time like other fabrics can.

 

Material #2: Duvet Filling

Duvet filling is a term that is often used interchangeably with the term stuffing, but this is not accurate. Duvet filling is the material that makes up the actual body of the duvet and is typically made of down feathers. Stuffing, on the other hand, refers to a softer filler that goes inside an outer shell to create a desired shape or thickness. A common type of stuffing is polyester fiberfill. Polyester fiberfill is less expensive than down feathers and does not provide as much warmth; however, it can be useful for applications where loft is needed without bulk. Additionally, some people experience allergic reactions from down feathers. For these people, synthetic fillings are preferable because they do not cause the same allergic reaction like natural ones may.

 

Material #3: Cotton

Cotton is the most popular fabric used in making dakimakura. Cotton is a great choice for those who prefer soft, breathable fabric that can easily absorb sweat and oil. It’s also light, so it will help keep you cool during hot summers while still retaining enough warmth during cold winters. Cotton is a great choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies to other materials as well. One downside to cotton though is that it wrinkles easily, which may bother some people. If this bothers you, then there are other fabrics you could use instead like linen or silk which don’t wrinkle as much when they’re not in use . Just remember that these two fabrics will be more expensive than cotton.

The third type of fabric is cotton, which is the most popular material used in making dakimakura. Cotton is a good choice for those who prefer soft and comfortable material, but also want something lightweight to keep them cool during warm days and warm during cold nights.

Cotton might not be the best option if you have sensitive skin or allergies since it can create irritation over time. Linen or silk would be better options if this happens to you since these two materials tend to have less of an impact on your body than cotton does over time. Linen and silk are more expensive than cotton though so make sure you have a budget before deciding on what type of fabric to go with! The last type of fabric is called wool, and it’s made from animal fur such as sheeps’ wool. Wool usually has a heavy weight to it and retains heat really well so I wouldn’t recommend using wool unless you live somewhere very cold where having a thick blanket is necessary all year round.

Although linen and silk are heavier than cotton, they do make softer material that doesn’t irritate your skin or cause allergic reactions overtime. They are also often lighter in color than their cheaper counterparts which means they will stand out more on a bedsheet or pillowcase set compared to something like brown satin sheets or black velvet pillows .

 

Final Thoughts On Fabric Types

The fabric is the first thing you should look at when purchasing a dakimakura. There are many different types of materials to choose from, so it’s important to know what you’re looking for and what you’ll be comfortable with. If you want something that feels soft, but not too tight to the touch, then a fabric such as velvet or flannel might be a good choice. If you want something that is silky smooth, then satin might be the best option. You can also find dakimakura in cotton or bamboo blends if those are your preferences. Be sure to think about how heavy the material will be and whether or not it will make any noise while moving around on it before purchasing.
