What you need to know when buying Fitted sheets.
What makes using a fitted sheet so popular?
We haven’t always used fitted sheets also known as the bottom sheets, in fact, a lot of people still don’t use fitted sheets on their beds, and they simply just use flat sheets and make the bed using classic “hospital corners” with a flat sheet.
Benefits of Using a Fitted Sheet?
- A fitted sheet covers and protects your mattress against wear and tear if there is no mattress protector
- They are fitted nice and snug to the mattress which therefore creates a flat, smooth sleeping surface.
- Easily remove when it’s time to wash.
- Super easy to put on which makes them a time saver as well.
Fitted sheets are often made from Cotton, Polyester, Linen, Bamboo, and other blends.
Fitted sheets are elasticized at the four corners of the sheets for a snug fit on the mattress. At the Manchester factory generally, a fitted sheet has a box depth which is also known as a “wall” depth of 40cm which accommodates the Australian standard mattress size.
More recently we are seeing a higher demand for fitted sheets to have an even deeper wall which we also accommodate in our mega-size which gives the customer a depth of 50cm instead of the standard 40cm.
As of late, we have noticed a significant demand in customers looking for sheets that will fit their mechanical beds these are quite commonly a long single size (91cmx204x40cm) which is longer than the standard single fitted sheet sizes.
So how can we help? At the Manchester factory, we sell a selection of high-quality fitted sheets. This range includes the highly sought-after Sienna Living Bamboo Cotton collection which has the standard sizes as well as the mega sizes available.
The Sienna Bamboo Collection has a composition of cotton bamboo fibers makes the fabric more breathable and temperature regulating than other fabrics.
The woven bamboo fibers with cotton will combat the stretching that may happen to pure bamboo fabrics when wet.
In doing so this will then increase durability and ensure that the sheets are long-lasting. These cotton bamboo sheets are ideal for sensitive skins as they're hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and resistant to odors.
The Sheets will keep you cool and dry as the fabric wicks moisture away from your body. These sheets are incredibly soft to the touch, even more so than cotton.
