Our guide to Bed Sheets

The right set of sheets can make a huge difference to how your bed feels and how well you sleep. With a little bit of know-how, you can find exactly what suits you.


Thread Count

Thread count is simply the number of threads woven into a 10 cm square of fabric. The higher the thread count, generally the denser and more durable the weave of the fabric. Denser weaves with finer yarns provide higher durability. However, a higher thread count doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the softest or best sheet for you. The type of weave you choose also plays an important part in how your bed sheets feel.


Weave

Plain/Percale

Care

Treat your sheets well and they will last longer and remain smooth & comfortable over time.

  • Always wash separately on a warm or hot wash
  • Adding other items in the wash can cause fibre shedding and pilling
  • Line dry is best to freshen & brighten white sheets
  • Keep your sheets in a well ventilated cupboard and make sure they are completely dry before storing
