About the Product
A single fitted sheet measures 90cm x 190cm, making it the perfect size for small single and single mattresses.
A soft single fitted sheet is perfect for anywhere you use a single bed - often found in guest bedrooms and children's bedrooms in particular. Although it's also a good idea to use a mattress protector, which will have a waterproof layer to prevent accidents from ruining your mattress, a single 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 single 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 single beds are often used for children, it's important that the sheet fits snugly and doesn't come away at the corners, so a touch of stretch in the fabric is a good idea.
You'll want your single 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 thought of as synonymous with comfort and quality in a single fitted sheet - but that's a bit of a yarn. What thread count technically means is the number of threads woven into each square inch of the fabric, counted by both warp (lengthwise) and weft (widthwise). To make things more confusing, some manufacturers will use the number of threads in a single piece of yarn - known as the ply - to inflate the number. But a quality finish depends on far more than just the number of threads or the ply of the yarn - it relies on yarn quality, the length of the cotton fibre (known as the staple), the weave and construction and the finishing proceses carried out on the woven product. Essentially, you'll know a quality single fitted sheet when you feel it.
Our single 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.
