Bedding Buying Guide | Designers Guild


As a signifier of quality, thread count is an important term to be aware of when buying bed linen. Quite simply, the higher the thread count the higher the quality. Thread count itself refers to the number of threads in one square inch of fabric – it applies to the warp and weft of each woven thread. Our cotton Astor Bed Linen, boasts a 400 thread count and our Bryant White Bed Linen has an impeccable 800 thread count so you can rest assured of a perfect night’s sleep.


Wonderfully breathable, versatile and incredibly durable – cotton is the most widely used fibre for bed linen. Whether printed or plain, it's the definition of timeless elegance.

Linen is one of the world’s oldest natural fabrics and is coveted for its smooth, crisp qualities. It very cleverly helps to keep you warm in Winter and cool in Summer with its beautiful slubby texture. Linen is luxurious and relaxed simultaneously, with no need for pressing – a contemporary and modern solution that is naturally stylish in any setting.

To ensure that your bed linen stays crisp and beautiful wash after wash:

-It is advisable to wash new sheets before putting them on the bed for the first time.

-Always wash dark colours separately.

-For most 100% cotton bed linen we recommend to wash at 40ºC and do not leave in the machine overnight, as fading may appear along crease lines.

-Always follow the washing instructions on the label. Commercial soap powders and detergents may be safely used but avoid detergents containing bleach or optical brighteners as they break down fabric fibres and cause colours to fade.

-Tumble dry but avoid overdrying as it causes wrinkles to set.
