Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 104 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Creases are awful Bought a duvet cover and matching pillow cases at end January. Gave them time to improve through washing but they have not. I had Egyptian cotten bed linen before but never had problems with bad creasing like these. The pillow cases are so stiff they feel almost like gaberdine to iron. The duvet cover is slightly softer but still creases very badly.. The only way to get them out is to take them straight from the washing machine and iron straight away. Then they crease badly on the bed. There most be something wrong with this particular batch of cotton but John Lewis does not appear to be taking any notice of customer reviews. I certainly would not recommned these products. 24 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really lovely bedding I bought this bedding set last year in oyster. They are fantastic. They wash beautifully and over time have actually got softer and more silky feeling. I highly recommend them and wouldn't ever buy any others. They come in a great colour range too! 14 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by greasy stains I have the duck-egg colour and it has developed the same greasy stains mentioned in another review - they have not come out with a hot wash or stronger powder so I am a bit disappointed. I like the colour, and the poppers make this duvet cover quick to change. 06 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Appalling quality The finish and feel of the duvet cover and pillowcases is appalling. It feels so rough, even after washing at the recommended temperature using much fabric conditioner. Having been in to my local John Lewis store and felt the finish of equivalent polycotton product I wish I had bought that and saved my money. Really really poor quality. 01 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what I expected... Bought everything in latte for a Kingsize bed in this range, duvet cover, four pillowcases and a fitted sheet. I also bought a duvet at the same time and four pillows. Firstly, the size of the duvet cover was bigger than the duvet by a considerable amount. I think some John Lewis duvet covers are 225cm and some are 230cm by 200cm, not quite sure why when I personally thought that Kingsize was a standard size..? There was just too much duvet cover for the size of the duvet. Then secondly, after only having it four months, two of the poppers at the bottom became detached from the fabric so you couldn't press them together leaving a gap in the opening. Disappointed with the overall quality. Check your sizes before buying a duvet cover from John Lewis. 11 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product They have really sorted out the texture issues as the feel is lovely and smooth - the last two I bought felt slightly brushed, although either they have softened, or I have got used to them now. What was disappointing was the colour. I ordered Oyster, but it wasn't like the ones I bought before - it was duller and more like a fawn colour. A while back I ordered Cream, but that seemed almost transparent when it arrived. I ought to go to the store and have a look, but my nearest one is 90 miles away. 02 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Happy I will never buy this again. I have washed it quite a few times but cannot get out greasy stains that seemed to have appeared from no-where. Also, the dye has become all patchy. It is though someone has thrown bleach over it. A mystery to me. I have checked to see if anyone else has had a similar problem but no. Also, it creases badly and I don't like the feel at all. Very disappointed. 11 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by J L Egyptian Cotton 200 count duvet cover I have been looking for plain cotton duvet covers for a while and JL is the only place I have managed to find which has a great range of colours and options of standard and Oxford pillow cases to mix and match. The fabric is good quality cotton and soft to the touch. I have just washed my new cover (didn't like the slightly chemical smell). It washed and dried quickly and smell disappeared completely. After reading several negative reviews about the creasing and difficulty with ironing I was pleasantly surprised. Minimum ironing is needed. As it is a cotton fabric it is not surprising it requires an iron! A good quality product. My only problem is that the claret colour Oxford pillow cases are out of stock, both in store and online. The store has assured me they will be restocked soon. 25 January 2015
