Can anyone recommend good bedding please? My fitted sheets shrink!

We need to wash at 90 for skin infections due to bad eczema.

Title is wrong sorry, should have had 90 in the title.

Try Belledorm; I don't use anything else now as the sheets are a generous size and I've had no shrinkage.
However, I don't think I've washed sheets at 90 - have at 60 though.
As for eczema, I suffered with it all my life until we had a water softener installed.
Eczema cleared up within four months and hasn't returned so far.
Oh joy ! At last I can wear wool.....

Thank you I'll have a look into them.

Without meaning offence, I'm nearing 40 and have suffered badly my whole life, my children both now have severe eczema and are constantly at the hospital. We've tried so much and I really can't take any more advice on that at the moment.

We have the white company. Usually wash at 60 degrees weekly, but have done the odd 90 degree when kids have thrown up on them! They are fine

No offence taken; I do understand believe me.
I'd spent my entire life wearing long sleeves and trousers to hide my awful skin. Every day, even in high summer.

BillyGoat been there. Last year I finally said f*ck it and wore the shorts and vests. The sun did me the world of good.

I went through a phase of washing at 90. I just decided the best thing was to buy cheap pure cotton bedding and accept it was going to get worn out v quickly, and replace again. Now I wash at 60 again though. (My reasons were all eczema related too btw)

I recommend high thread count sheets & bedding - I particularity use Hilden / Liddell linens because they are really good quality with high thread count -

They also have anti-allergy bedding which should help if you suffer from allergies or irritations

Marks and Spencer sheets are quite generous to start with I have found, especially the deep fitted ones.
