Q & As


John Lewis Luxury Egyptian Cotton Bedding 3.8 5 45 45
Comfortable sleeping Excellent quality adding luxury to sleep time and minimum ironing required. The colours available can compliment each other making shopping so much easier and enjoyable . 15 April 2014
Fitted sheet and pillow cases Bought a couple of bits to finish off the bed set. chose the plain white but impressed with the other colours available. good quality but as with most Egyptian cotton a little tricky to iron in the first few washes before the cotton has become a little more supple. Highly recommended 15 April 2014
Fantastic colour range Most places do not stock plain coloured egyptian cotton bedding but John Lewis have a vast range of fantastic colours that are all sold as seperates. I love them!! 09 April 2014
It serves it's purpose! The bedding feels very soft to the touch! I am a bit disappointed with the 'soft blue' colour as it creases a lot! 02 April 2014
As good as expected!!! We bought a few square pillow case, the service was excellent and we are very happy with the quality. 19 March 2014
Definately a good buy. I was almost put off ordering this because of the poor reviews but I'm glad I went ahead. I chose Truffle which is a gorgeous soft mocha colour and was very pleased that it matches my decor so well. The Steel which John Lewis delivered by mistake was also lovely - I almost kept it. The cotton is good quality and ok, it's not the silky quality of some Egyptian cotton but we're not paying premium prices here! The poppers are fine as they are concealed within the double fold. My son has the orange( actually a slightly terracotta shade - very nice) in single size and the white poppers there are rather obvious but hey ho! My only caveat is that I haven't washed it yet so dont' know if it will be the ironing nightmare predicted by some reviewers but then who can iron a superking duvet cover without a few curses? 18 March 2014
Super bedding Lovely colours, super bedding, looks great, good quality, washes well. 04 March 2014
Uncomfortable and rough on the skin I bought these sheets after reading some very positive reviews here however since using them I have been thoroughly disappointed with the quality of this product. The material is very rough and chafed my skin when I tested it out. Even after a warm wash with softener the texture is still very rough and feels almost like seatbelt material. They are described as luxury and this is not the high quality you expect from John Lewis. Returning. 01 March 2014
