“ Brand: Tesco / Product Type: Fitted Sheet „
I recently moved house and because I needed to buy everything I didn't want to spend too much money on the essentials. I had already bought quite a lot of items from tesco and had found them to be good value and quality, hence I decided to buy the sheets for the single beds from here.
The sheets are available online t www.tesco.com and also in tesco stores. The online option is great if you have a tesco store close to you as delivery is free even to smaller stores and delivery is usually within a couple of days.
I initially bought two sheets the same and given that they cost £4.50 each worked on the principle that even if they proved to be rubbish then I hadn't wasted a small fortune!
I wanted white sheets which was fairly handy for me as I believe they are available only in white. This is a fitted sheet which is made from a mix of cotton and polyester and for anyone who understands, it has a thread count of 144 ( means nothing to me!) When I took it out of the packaging it didn't feel overly thin and didn't have that almost see through look some sheets can have when held up to the light.
The main test for me with fitted sheets is if they actually fit without me having a huge struggle to get them on. In this case they are the perfect fit for a standard single bed mattress and I don't have a huge fight on my hands every time I change the sheets. The fitted part at the corners fits snugly although something to remember is that they are suitable for mattresses up to a height of 25 cm; I assume that anything bigger than this and they won't stay in place. On our mattresses they are the perfect fit and even between changes don't start to ride off the corners.
The sheets are machine washable and can also be tumble dried. I haven't noticed any shrinkage and even after a few months and lots of washes there is no bobbling or noticeable wear on the fabric. The elastic on the corners hasn't gone loose and they still fit perfectly.
The sheets are great value. They feel comfortable on the skin and keep their shape and still look as new.
Bargain sheets, and recommended
