Bed Linen buying guide

 

What could be more inviting than a beautifully dressed bed at the end of a long day? We have a huge choice of duvet covers, sheets and pillowcases for every look and budget.

Quality

Our sheets, duvet covers, valances and pillowcases come in a range of different fabrics and thread counts. The term ‘thread count’ refers to the number of threads in a square inch of fabric. The higher the thread count the finer and better quality the fabric.

Polycotton bed linen comes in a bright choice of fabulous shades 
and is easy care, requiring little or no ironing. It also dries more quickly than cotton.

Easycare Egyptian cotton is celebrated for its superior strength, durability and comfort. We’ve worked hard to source the very best blend, to ensure it is silky, strong and vibrant in colour. While lesser bed linen may fade over time, this range retains its finish wash after wash and requires minimal ironing.

Pima cotton is made from highly prized fibres that allow for a higher thread count. This ensures a luxuriously soft feel, incredible comfort and reassuring durability.

Genuisa is our finest range and uses only the best cotton, including Suvine. The latter’s longer fibres make an extra fine, lustrous yarn that drapes beautifully around the body. The 1000 thread count creates an exceptionally smooth and opulent feel that’s similar to silk and grows softer with each wash.

Silk offers the ultimate indulgence. Not only does it feel exquisite, it regulates your body temperature to keep you warm in winter and cool in the summer. Revered for its fabulous health and beauty benefits, it proactively helps to retain moisture in your skin and hair which can minimise wrinkles and prevent ‘bed head’ frizz and static.
