Comforters, bedspreads and comfortspreads cover the bed evenly and create a nice day look for the bedroom – they are often used for the guest bedrooms, in hotels and Bed ‘n’ Breakfast places. You can use them in your bedroom too – the only question is which type do you prefer?
Practises vary across the globe, but in most western cultures and in Australia the normal arrangement of sheets is fairly uniform. One or two bed sheets (fitted and/or flat), one or two pillows for practical use (depending on Standard Bed Size), and a doona / quilt on top for warmth. To start, find out the … Read more
Different names for the same thing People have given it different names over the ages, but the item itself is almost the same all around the globe – a soft, flat bag filled with some light, warm filling that we use to cover ourselves in bed. Duvet, Doona, Quilt, Continental Quilt, Edredon, Cotton Blanket … Read more
Thread count is often considered a simple measure of fabric quality, so that “standard” cotton thread counts are around 150, while good-quality sheets start at 180 and a count of 200 or higher is considered percale, or closely woven. Thread count in sheets can range from 80 to 700+, although most stores sell sheets ranging … Read more
When winter is in full swing it’s time to pile on the sheets and blankets and huddle up in bed! As BLO is based in Melbourne we know a little bit about miserable weather and what a difference the right doona can make. But which IS the right Doona? And what’s the difference? Many of … Read more
For probably as long as we have had bed linen one of the most time-consuming jobs for the home-maker was ironing it all out. The best looking beds are generally freshly made and pressed, and yet many choose not to take on this arduous task due to how labour- and time-intensive it is. Many of … Read more
Some swear by flat sheets, some swear to never use them, and will strip them off hotel beds if need be.

In the US it … Read more

A new owner of a King Single bed may find that although they can find sheets in King Single size, quilts and quilt cover sets generally do not come in King Single size. So what size quilt/doona is best for a King Single bed? Since all four standard-sized quilts are the same length and King … Read more
You will need to measure the height of your mattress. Our fitted bed sheets have 40cm high walls on each side, and so will not fit your mattress if it is more than 38cm or so high (this allows for the elastic). In that case you may need to find deeper sheets.
A valance is not a bed essential. Valance refers to an extra length of fabric extending beyond the regular edges of a bed cover (see bed covers, specifically bedspreads and comfortspreads) which looks much like a curtain and is designed to hang prettily to the floor down the sides of the bed and is purely … Read more
I have two single mattresses side-by-side I would like to fit with sheets. Their height is a little different, what size should I use? I would rather not buy two single sheet sets. A short answer would be to use a double bed fitted sheet, though this will only fit the mattresses very well if … Read more
This is because you’ve ordered a bulky item such as a quilt, and only sheet and quilt cover sets are included in the $8.50 postage. Bulky items such as quilts, bed covers and mattress toppers cost far more to send, and so the postage cost is increased.
They are made in India by a Certified Egyptian Cotton producer. :O) The ‘Egyptian’ in the title refers to a superior and highly regulated way of growing and weaving cotton (read more here), rather than the location in which it is made.

Yes, they all come with one or two pillowcases depending on the size of the quilt cover. Single bed sets will only have one pillowcase, where double, queen and king will each have two pillowcases.
We have personally never had to compare them for feel. We have always been just fine with microfiber quilts, since they wash well, are lighter than woolen quilts and our family are generally quite warm sleepers. Woolen quilts will be quite a lot warmer than microfiber, and down quilts will be very warm, comfortable and … Read more
You will probably be looking for a quilt/duvet/doona as well as a quilt cover to cover it, since this way the doona will stay cleaner longer and it is easier to regularly wash just the quilt cover. It does not really matter how the material of the doona itself feels against your skin, since you’ll … Read more

This applies more to clothes, but it does … Read more
