after years his soft cotton one is giving up the ghost - will he surrender it? NO WAY
So many are scratchy. he wants a soft cotton or maybe even jersey one, in theory in monochrome patterns

this is a long shot, isnt it?

You can get ones made of t-shirty material, that would work, wouldn't it? You get them everywhere - John Lewis, Sainsbury's etc. Often they're the 'bed in the bag' type things...

eg this

hi Hazel - yes i saw that, but its a bit prison like grin

Boys are bloody weird

GretaWolfcastle Fri 21-Feb-14 14:25:05

Oh I hope someone comes along with a magic suggestion. I have the same issue blush I'm so sensitive!

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 21-Feb-14 14:27:13

That was just an example... Surely this is the type of thing you gte in most places (the tshirty type thing).

Not sure how you replicate the softness of well-worn/washed 100% cotton - you can either go jersey, but that does bobble, or flannel. But both are pretty ubiquitous. Does he want a pattern or a plain ?

My ds1 age 14 is just the same! He can't stand the cheaper scratchy ones. Second hand well washed sets are often ok.

GretaWolfcastle Fri 21-Feb-14 14:30:29

sorry Hazel - didnt mean to sound shirty.

GretaWolfcastle Fri 21-Feb-14 14:31:09

Snigger at second hand - there might be a business enterprise there, " we wash duvet covers then sell them to you"

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 21-Feb-14 14:32:00

Ach Greta you didn't sound shirty, I jsut meant that there were loads more...! grin

2nd hand - pre-worn like a vintage jean - is a thought. Would that be acceptable to the teen ?

my son likes the soft silky stuff and has this one:

but in a different colour that they dont seem to do at the moment.

Debenhams often have brushed cotton ones, very lovely and soft.

GretaWolfcastle Fri 21-Feb-14 14:42:18

good tip - other son has IKEA and its been pretty scratchy

GretaWolfcastle Fri 21-Feb-14 14:42:24

ta panda

CockBollocks Fri 21-Feb-14 14:44:18

plain

soontobeslendergirl Fri 21-Feb-14 14:56:36

He has another IKEA one (a cheaper one) and it is scratchy, the one I linked to is silky soft without the overly warmness of a brushed cotton - my teens always seem to be hot.

GretaWolfcastle Fri 21-Feb-14 14:59:02

oh I see - yes I wil look out for them

the red looks nice too from Next

Floralnomad Fri 21-Feb-14 15:00:44

QVC do a brand called cozee home , they are a fleece material - very soft .

goodasitgets Fri 21-Feb-14 15:03:50
