We are always on the lookout for linen products that will make life easier for our customers and when details of a new sheet range arrived on our desk recently, we were immediately on alert! With huge rises in the price of cotton over the last year which impacted heavily on the finished cost of sheets and pillowcases, we knew that we were on the lookout for something that was price effective whilst at the same time being easy care in a good range of colours.
The eighth wonder of the world will surely be a crease-free sheet – there are certainly enough people in the hospitality industry searching for such a thing!
The addition of polyester to the cotton mix (polycotton) reduces creasing but the majority of B&B and lodge operators prefer to offer their guests 100% cotton sheets for that extra touch of luxury. It is a sad fact though that cotton sheets do crease.
Using the “triple sheeting” method simply means that you are using your normal sheets (2 x flat sheets or 1 x fitted and 1 x flat sheet), topping that with a warmth layer (usually a quilt or duvet inner), and then finishing that off with a “top sheet”.
