Stay well clear of dunelm and head for house of Fraser forvexcellect quality, squared and oblong tru bed cloths in 500 counts with very generous savings

ivykaty44 Sat 26-Dec-15 14:24:53

Dunelm pillow cases and sheets are not true therefore don't sit correctly on pillows etc and a bugger to iron.

I went to house of Fraser and got higher thread count better quality linen for less money in sales

Much shopping around was done

House of Fraser
However, I am a cheapskate and often pick things up right at the end of the sale.

I second House of Fraser. Great reductions, they even have 800 and 1000 thread count for around £100!

I've just bought some from The White Company.

I'd say stores attge higher end, House of Fraser/ Harvey Nicks, Debenhams etc.

Although, seen nice bedding from Next and TK Maxx always have bedding in from some designer or other ie DKNY etc.

Reviews don't look too great on HoF ones though, they say that the sheets shrink then no longer fit the bed shock

Forgot to say thank you for your replies.

Try Soak and Sleep website. And Feather & Black. My linen from there washes a treat. I've had it so long but it still looks good.

Always been happy with these people. www.justlinen.co.uk

John Lewis - no sales that I know of but totally a changed woman.
We bought our first "proper" bed sheets (one which actually have a thread count) winkand I will never go back to cheap sheets again!
Looking for double too.
The White company has gorgeous sheets too... If you're prepared to give up an arm and a leg hmm

Super King for me too, watching with interest!

"and a bugger to iron."

You iron sheets shock

Another vote for John Lewis here. I agree that Dunelm fitted sheets for our superking are a little too small.

LBOCS2 Wed 30-Dec-15 11:02:48

The White Company ones are much better value in the sales. Also their deep fitted sheets are really good.

SevenOfNineTrue Wed 30-Dec-15 11:04:09

John Lewis Special Buys are always a good bet.

HortonWho Wed 30-Dec-15 11:08:27

There was a poster on here who explained how they high street brands sometimes achieve high thread sheets and it doesn't mean better quality... But I can't recall the thread. I did learn about some French linen sheets that cost more than a car and also bough these more realistically priced [[ www.soakandsleep.com/luxury-linen-bed-linen.html French Linen sheets]] from Soak and Sleep. I heart them so much! and the crumpled linen looks great - I never iron them.

Goandplay Wed 30-Dec-15 11:45:49

I bought really high thread count in House of Fraser sales last year. They have twisted and don't feel as nice now they've been washed. I don't rate them at all.

e1y1 Wed 30-Dec-15 12:00:46

Another one I forgot to mention, which is bad as I've used them a few times.

King of Cotton all my duvets and pillows are from there and a couple of duvet covers etc.
