How To Change Your Fitted Sheet?

We are always being asked just how easy it is to change your fitted sheet, so today we are looking at the vast range of fitted sheets available from Belledorm who are one of the best bedlinen manufacturers in the UK.

There are a few reasons for just elasticating the fitted sheets at the corners, the main one is appearance. This acts like a fitted sheet at the corners and a flat sheet down the sides so it can be tucked under your mattress leaving it looking pristine. Fitted sheets that are elasticated all the way around can looked gathered or bunched making it harder to give that stunning hotel appearance.

Another very important reason for just elasticating the corners of the fitted sheets is to make it easier for ironing, we are sure by now you may be well aware of the issues of placing your fitted sheets on the ironing board and trying to iron around the elasticated edges, imagine trying to iron the whole sheet if it had full elasticated sides.

Belledorm have produced a very good video showing the best way of fitting your sheet to your mattress. https://belledorm.co.uk/pages/videos

Fitted sheets really are the best way to cover your mattress, they are easy to wash and iron and come in a vast array of sizes, box depths and colours. If you are looking for a particular style or size drop us an email at sales@bedlinendirect.co.uk and we will be more than happy to give you any information you need or a quote for any size of fitted sheet you require.

The Benefits of Wool Duvets

THE BENEFITS OF WOOL

So What’s So Good About Wool and a Wool Duvet?

For thousands of years mankind has understood the qualities and benefits of wool. We just seem to have forgotten about it in the last few decades, perhaps it’s time to take another look. After all wool is a completely natural fibre.

WOOL is the worlds most breathable fibre and can absorb 30% of its own weight in moisture before it transfers that moisture and heat.

How is wool different to down, feathers or polyester?
These are all insulators,they make the body hot and don’t release heat. This is fine when you first get into bed, but then, during the night our body temperature should drop as we go into deep sleep. These insulators bring our body temperature up so we either fully wake up or toss and turn to cool off. Then we go to sleep again and repeat the process of getting hot. But this time it maybe our partner is too hot in the bed and so the great duvet war starts with us pulling and pushing off the duvet. This is not natural sleep and it prevents essential deep sleep which is necessary for cell regeneration and to help the body fight illness. Continue reading The Benefits of Wool Duvets
