Q & As

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 205 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Easy care resin finish may contain formaldehyde The Easy Care resin finish makes the cotton feel and behave like polyester. I don't feel it breathes and it seems to generate heat. This is not your gran's Egyptian cotton. I have asked John Lewis Customer services to confirm the formaldehyde content but they have not yet done so. 21 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely fabric I bought this sheet to compliment some other items in the range that I had previously purchased, and with which I was very pleased. The fabric is lovely - soft, but substantial and comfortable to sleep on. It launders well, and is relatively easy to iron considering it is 100 per cent cotton. 17 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't bobble We are several of these sheets and pillow cases. Even after many washes, there isn't the slightest hint of any bobbling. They are as smooth to lie on as the day we bought them. 28 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by not comfortable I bought the duvet cover in dark blue because it was 100% cotton, however it feels more like polyester. I am very disappointed. I washed it twice as I thought it would get better, but it didn't. My husband and I do not like it at all. 20 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality bedding Quilt cover looks good and fits well. I like the fact that it can be washed at 60 degrees with no resulting loss of colour. My only criticism is that for some reason it feels very cold to the touch, even during the night. 12 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good colour choice This cover and pillow cases were not as soft cotton as I would like. They wash well overall, but the pillowcases quickly acquired greasy patches that do not come out when washed. 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Pillowcase I had brought a new pillow but didn't realise that it was king size which was too big for my bed set. I found this pillowcase in a contrasting colour and purchased two of them. The quality is great and up to a good hotel standard. It doesn't crease, washes nicely and easy to iron. 12 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value pillowcases Considering the pillowcases are only 200 thread count they feel fairly soft and the grey colour is still rich after several washes. 12 April 2016
