Christmas Pajamas – A DIY Guide to Custom Holiday PJs

The most wonderful time of year is fast approaching and with it all the joy of shopping, gifts, family, food, lights, and of course…Christmas Pajamas. This is the one time of year where it’s cute and socially acceptable for everyone in the family, including Dad, to wear highly decorative or bright matching pajamas and to unashamedly take and share pictures of this phenomena.

As a custom fabric printing company, we’ve seen a lot of amazing pajamas created by our customers and we enjoy seeing all the Christmas fabric orders for pjs coming through our print shop this time of year. So, we thought it would be fun to do a blog post as a guide to Christmas Pajamas that pulls from the wisdom and skills of our customer community.

What Is the Best Fabric for Christmas Pajamas?

Of course we all want Christmas pajamas to look fun and nice, but as pajamas they should also be comfortable! A pajama set should be made from material that is a delight to lounge in all day long or to snuggle under a blanket and sleep all night long.

We took a poll in our Facebook Group, asking our customers what their fabric fabric is for Christmas Pajamas. Here are the results:

#1 – Organic Large Box Thermal: A Customer Favorite for Christmas Pajamas

Christmas Pajamas made by Alicia Z using our American-Milled Large Box Thermal fabric

Our organic large box thermal is definitely a customer favorite for winter and holiday pajamas. This box thermal (also commonly called “waffle”) is extremely comfortable with a soft textured surface that provides a ton of natural breathability due to its 95% cotton content. With a 5% spandex makeup it has a 4-way stretch and great recovery. You really won’t go wrong with this fabric for pajamas.

#2 – Organic Cotton Spandex

A very close second for best pajama fabric is our Organic Cotton Spandex. Customers especially seem to like this option for pajama tops. We have this American-Milled fabric available in both a regular weight and a lightweight option, both are great and popular options for Christmas pajamas. This fabric has a 4-way stretch and is extremely soft and comfortable, making it especially popular for baby and children’s pajamas.

#3 – Organic CS French Terry

Coming in at 3rd place is our Organic CS French Terry. This American-milled fabric has a low looped back and soft hand. With a 4-way stretch it is especially popular for sweatpants and makes a great lounge-style pajama material.

#4 – Organic Small Box Thermal

Very similar to our large box thermal, but with a smaller waffle pattern, our Small Box Thermal is both Organic and American Milled made with 95% cotton and 5% spandex. This fabric also has great recovery with a 4-way stretch and provides very good breathability.
