John Lewis Exquisite Genuisa Cotton Fitted Sheets, White, White

Product information

Genuisa ™ is the highest quality cotton in our bedding range and is made by selecting the finest cottons, including Suvine, which are blended together.

Suvine has an extended growing time, which results in long cotton fibres making extra fine, silky smooth yarn of exceptional strength and quality. These yarns are twisted together before weaving, creating our lavishly luxurious 1000 thread count satin. The fibre is innately lustrous and similar to the feel of silk.

Since the lustre is natural and inherent in the cotton fibres, these fitted sheets get silkier and softer wash after wash. This fabric has a beautiful, fluid drape.

  • Single to fit bed 90 x 190cm
  • Double to fit bed 135 x 190cm
  • Kingsize to fit bed 150 x 200cm
  • Super kingsize to fit bed 180 x 200cm


Exquisite Genuisa

Our most luxurious bed linen collection, the Exquisite Genuisa range is crafted from an opulent blend of long staple Indian and Suvin cottons for a fine, silky finish in a 1000 thread count satin weave.

Gloriously close to the feel of silk, this lustrous bedding is renowned for its extra fine yarn that fuses quality and strength with one elegant twist.

Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Really disappointed I loved the feel of this fitted sheet when I bought it - and felt it was worth the added expense. I am now most disappointed though as it has not lasted well. I am shocked too with the speed with which it deteriorated. After just 20 months it has become thin in places and in one place - a hole has opened up. I thought the extra long fibres meant it was more hard wearing, not less, than sheets of a lower thread count / typical fibre length. I have only ever washed this with non-bio laundry detergent and at 30C. I will not be buying this again. 21 February 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Disappointed with the quality of the fitted sheets. They feel lovely, but don't wear at all well. After 2 years use and only washing at 40 degrees C (with non-biological powder), the sheet has already worn through. 03 February 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Genuisa Fitted Sheets I have been using these sheets for years now and as one reviewer said, once you have tried them its hard to go back to anything else. But i have consistently found that the elastic around the fitted sheet loosens very quickly and becomes useless. The sheets use to have the elastic fitted all the way around, then it was changed to just around the corners. I have had to replaced the elastic several times on my sheets and this is extremely annoying considering how much they cost. This is very poor for such expensive bedding. 07 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disintegrates Bought a complete set 2 years ago and at first they felt fabulous. After 18months the pillowcases and flat sheet had frayed so I took them back and they were replaced (see comments on another posting below). Assistant advised she would send them to the lab as the fabric was very fragile - she was able to pull it apart like blotting paper. A hole has now appeared in the fitted sheet. The bedding has only been washed with non-bio detergent at 40C, so I don't think the problem lies with anything I've done. There is something seriously wrong with this range - do not waste your money. 05 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hugely disappointing Loved the double fitted sheet when I first put it on because of the comfortable fit to the mattress. Washed once according to instructions and it has shrunk by at least 7cm if not more so now corners don't reach corner of the mattress and elasticated sides no longer grip under the mattress all round. Really not good for this kind of money... 09 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by complete luxury! I got a full set of bedding from this range including this fitted sheet and I love it. It is so soft, you can really feel the quality. Our mattress is 30cm deep and it fits perfectly. It is expensive but so far we're very happy with it, assuming it wears well it'll be worth the investment. 05 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor value for money Slightly scratchy when new, though not as bad as the JL 200thread count which were unbearable They did get softer after a couple of washes, but unfortunately a few washes later have also bobbled in patches so are pretty uncomfortable. At this price they really should last more than a few weeks. 22 July 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Zzzzzzz Now I have experienced sleeping in this bed linen I wouldn't choose anything else, however, after washing the fitted sheet and pillowcases several times I find they have shrunk, its now a struggle to get the sheet fitted on the corners of the mattress and I'm literally stuffing the pillow in its case. Would I buy again probably yes but maybe a flat sheet next time......... . 31 March 2015
