Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent buy Very pleased with the sheets. They have washed well and fit bed really well. I would say they are as good as the more expensive ones. Would feel better about my purchase if I had of received my £5 voucher which I activated before I started my shopping at john Lewis but have never received. This is twice this as happened. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good basic product Fitted beds well. Washes well. Great for the price. 14 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for purpose I have bought these single sheets for my children's beds as they are perfectly adequate and it doesn't matter at this price if they get a bit stained and battered. They actually wash really well and I've not needed to replace them in the 2 years or so since I bought them. Not the most luxurious fabric in the world but who would expect that at this price. They fit single mattresses fine. The most recent one I bought (the one I was asked to review) got cut up and converted into a costume for World Book Day. Far cheaper than buying dress fabric. So a multipurpose product particularly suited to those with young children! 11 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Basics Combed Polycotton Fitted Sheet I was really pleased with the one I bought. I have bought those that needed ironing before and was tired of the drudgery. These need little or no ironing. What is more they are comfortable and not so hard to put on the bed. I was very pleased with my purchase.. 04 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Scratchy Even after washing with fabric conditioner the sheets were scratchy to lie on especially if your face comes off the pillow. I was surprised as the level of polyester is lower than in other polycotton sheets I have bought in the past which have been smooth. 01 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit and value for money. Excellent product from John Lewis and great price. 17 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disapointed The sheet was off white which really looked bad against my white duvet set I wouldn't recommend this product.. 17 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't fit king size bed After reading previous reviews that mentioned this sheet not fitting properly, I measured our mattress to make sure the dimensions of the sheet given would fit our bed. Didn't bother putting it on prior to washing as assumed JL would sell sheets that fit the intended mattress. Well, sadly it seems they don't. There's absolutely no way this sheet would fit a king size mattress. As a frequent JL customer, I'm disappointed and frustrated by this basic oversight that I might expect from less reputable retailers. I appreciate it's cheap but I still expect it to be fit for purpose. 01 February 2015
