A good night's sleep is only as good as the bedding you are sleeping in. We have enough to worry about in life, so let us help take the decision-making out of your bedroom.
Do you need help with sizing? Materials? Thread counts? We have got you covered.
Bedding sizes are standardised in the UK & Ireland. For maximum cosy potential, you'll find that bedding is designed to be slightly bigger than the mattress it's made for. For extra comfort, some people choose to size up - like picking a king size duvet cover for a double bed.
Quite simply, thread count refers to the number of threads - both vertical and horizontal - in a square inch of fabric. Broadly speaking, the higher the thread count, the more durable and luxurious the sheet. If you're after real luxury, our 500 thread count cotton sateen linen is your ultimate buy.
Considered to be the best textile for bedding, cotton is highly influenced by thread count. Cotton bedding tends to keep one warm in the winter and cool in the summer; it does not pill; and cotton bedding gets softer and more comfortable with time.
Sateen: In this style of weaving, warp and weft threads are interwoven with filling threads, resulting in a smooth, lustrous look and feel. The sheets with the highest thread counts are usually constructed with a sateen weave.
Percale: This is a plain weave, in which warp and weft (vertical and horizontal threads) are woven between eachother one at a time. This checkerboard style weave produces a very strong fabric, and tightly woven threads create a crisp and fine matte finish.
