Laura Ashley bedlinen is available in:

Different fabrics and thread counts

  • 'Thread count' refers to how many threads there are, per square inch of fabric
  • The higher the thread count, the crisper, smoother and more luxurious the feel of the fabric.
  • Pencale describes a tighter cotton weave and can be any thread count above 180.

Various fibres

  • Pure cotton: cool, crisp and luxurious
  • Polyester mixes: low maintenance, with fewer creases, easy ironing and rapid drying
  • Linen - has a more textured feel and is cool and absorbent

Different styles

  • Printed - the design is printed onto the fabric
  • Jacquard - the design is woven into the fabric, using a jacquard loom
  • Woven stripe/check - The design is woven into the fabric using a mechanised loom
  • Embroidered - Beautiful and delicate, made using hand guided and machine embroidery

  • Follow the specific care labels sewn into the product
  • Use detergents that are suitable for the specific product – ie Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs) are designed to maintain white fabrics so avoid using detergents containing these for anything other than plain white dye.
  • Ensure that the washing machine is never more than 2/3 full to ensure efficient and thorough cleaning
  • Remove bedlinen from tumble drier as soon as it is dry, or it will become more creased and difficult to iron
