About the Product
A king size fitted sheet measures 150cm x 200cm, making it the perfect size for a UK king size, EU double or EU double L mattress.
A soft king size fitted sheet is perfect for anywhere you use a king size bed. Although it's also a good idea to use a mattress protector, which will have a waterproof layer to prevent spills and accidents from ruining your mattress, a king size fitted sheet also provides a layer of smooth softness and can co-ordinate with the bedsheets.
There are two types of bed sheet that are used as the base layer of your bedding. The old-school type is the flat sheet, which is now used mostly for sleeping under (if you're not the duvet type). A king size fitted sheet has corners sewn in and an elasticated edge. This is to secure it safely around the mattress so it doesn't buckle or shift during the night, causing uncomfortable lumps. As king size beds are great for offering more wriggle room - and families with one will find everyone piles in for a cuddle at the weekend! - it's important that the sheet fits snugly and doesn't come away at the corners, so getting one that's made to stretch comfortably is a good idea.
You'll want your king size fitted sheet to be breathable, durable and fit your mattress properly. So it's good to look for fabrics such as cotton, which is naturally breathable and hypoallergenic, with a soft weave or finish. You'll also want some stretch from something like elastane, which means that no matter how thick your mattress is you can be sure the corners won't untuck themselves. You can also look for extra fabric treatments that add a touch of luxury. Everyone loves fresh, crisp bedsheets, so looking for quality threads and a weave that suits the purpose is far more important than thread count.
Thread count is often used as shorthand for quality and comfort in bed sheets - but it's not necessarily the best thing to be looking for. Thread count is defined by the number of threads in each square inch of fabric, defined both lengthwise (aka warp) and widthwise (aka weft). Because of the misconception that more means better, some manufacturers sneakily use the number of threads in a single piece of yarn - known as the ply - to make the numbers more impressive. But a quality sheet depends on far more than just the number of threads or the ply of the yarn - it will come from a combination of yarn quality, the length of the cotton fibre (aka the staple), the construction and weave and things like singeing and mercerizing, which are finishing proceses carried out on the final product. Essentially, you'll know a quality king size fitted sheet when you feel it.
Our king size fitted sheet combines the crispness and comfort of hypoallergenic soft jersey cotton and adds 5% elastane to ensure a perfect fit. And we've infused the finished sheet with Aloe Vera, which soothes your skin as you sleep for up to five normal washes. It's easy to keep clean by machine washing at up to 40 degrees.
