What are the different depths of fitted sheets?
We offer fitted sheets in depths from 25cm – 38cm. Getting the depth of your mattress right is the key to a good fit. Too small and you’ll put too much pressure on the fabric which could cut its life, too baggy and it could come off while you sleep.
What is the difference between a valance and a fitted valance sheet?
Standard (Housewife) Pillowcase or Oxford Pillowcase?
The standard pillowcases have a plain rectangular shape, oxford pillowcases have an extra piece of fabric creating a border around the edge. The size of the rectangle is the same in both, the Oxford’s frill just makes it look bigger.
Weaves & Finishes
All our bedding ranges have been designed to make dressing your bed as stress-free as possible:
- All of our fitted sheets are fully elasticated all the way around to fit securely to your mattress.
- Our pillowcases have deep envelopes (flaps) to ensure your pillow stays inside and doesn’t show.
- All of our duvet covers have ‘shoulders’ either side of the opening to keep your duvet in place all night.
- Our care labels clearly state what the item is and its size, which should shorten your hunt in the linen closet.

- Try mixing various colours to create a calming palette consisting of duck egg, silver and greens, or create an impactful statement mixing ochre and grey or mulberry and teal.
- Don’t be scared to mix different fabrics to suit your needs, for example a cotton percale fitted sheet for coolness and a silk pillowcase to help control your hair and resist wrinkles.
- Washing your bedding before use will rejuvenate and enrich the feel after manufacturing.
- Wash your bed linen weekly to keep it looking at its best. Not only does this create a hygienic night’s sleep but leaving it longer can cause discoloration.
- Always separate your bed linen into light and dark colours to avoid colours running in the wash.
- Remove the washing out of the machine as soon as the cycle is complete to avoid them smelling damp.
- The temperature on the care label is a reference to the highest temperature your linens can withstand, so consider washing at a lower temperature which is kinder on your product and the planet. Running a prewash may be necessary for heavily soiled linens and most modern detergents provide excellent results at low temperatures.
- Be sure to use the amount of detergent that the packaging states. It won’t get any cleaner the more you use.
- Avoid washing your bed linen with clothing as hooks and zips can catch on the delicate fabrics and damage them.
- Where possible we recommend line-drying your bed linen to minimise ironing and reduce your impact on the environment. Line-drying percales will help to make the ironing process quicker and easier.
- If you love the look of crisp ironed bedding, then iron your sheets when they are almost dry as this will help with stubborn creases. It is also worth bearing in mind when choosing your bedding that percale fabrics are more prone to creases than sateen fabrics.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is thread count?
