CHOOSE THE RIGHT FITTED SHEETS FOR YOU
Fitted Sheets protect the mattress, and prolong its life span. Fitted sheets have an elastic fitting at each corner that wraps neatly and tidily around your mattress, providing a comfortable bed. Fitted sheets can be washed easily and regularly. A handy tip to remember is that sheets can shrink up to 7% after the first wash, so keep that in mind.

TYPES OF MATERIALS
Your fitted sheet material needs to reflect how you sleep at night - if you tend to get cold, maybe a polyester material is suitable. If you tend to get warm during the night, breathable fabric such as cotton will suit you. Or, if your body temperature varies during the night, like many, then a polycotton material will be what you are looking for.
Percale is a fine, densely woven, smooth plain weave fabric. The percale fabric consists of 50% cotton and 50% polyester, making products feel soft, smooth and luxurious yet retain a solid and durable quality. It is straightforward to care for and is machine washable at 40˚C.
100% cotton sheets interwoven with a satin weave, this fabric is soft and silky to touch. Cotton is a natural fibre. It breathes against your skin while sateen adds a soft sheen to the material. Our range of Cotton Sateen fitted sheets have a high thread count of 300.
These sheets have a high quality, supple finish. Flannelette fabric is brushed during manufacturing, leading to a soft and fluffy texture afterwards. The brushing process gives this 100% cotton range excellent insulating properties, helping to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Creams or whites are the most popular colours as they are calming colours that will look good under almost every bedspread. Patterned or darker coloured sheets are a handy option if you are prone to leaving your sheets on your bed for long periods. Paler sheets will hold their colour longer, while darker sheets are prone to fading with washes.
People prone to allergic reactions and are sensitive to certain types of material should always check the types of duvet covers.
A duvet with a high cotton content is usually the best type for those who suffer from allergies. Bed linen woven quite tightly is more resistant to dust mites and bacteria, so a duvet cover with a high thread count may be what you need.
Many people who suffer from allergies will often want to wash their bed linen every 3-4 weeks (most duvet covers are machine washable and can withstand many washes).
