Where are your products made?
Our fine long-staple cotton bedding is proudly manufactured in Israel, a country with a long history of quality textile production.
Our pure merino wool throw rugs are crafted in Tasmania, in Australia's oldest operating mill. Our soaps are handmade in Tasmania using locally sourced ingredients.
What is the thread count of your sheets?
Thread count is often misrepresented and doesn't actually indicate quality, what matters more is the quality of the fibre, the weave and fabric finishes. However thread count will affect the thickness of the sheets. Our percale sheets are 270 thread count and because we use fine yarn, our sheets are lightweight and crisp, great all year round and particularly good for warm sleepers. Our sateen range is 500 thread count, silkier feel and warmer than percale. You can read more about thread count on our blog https://www.thegoodsheet.com.au/blog/thread-count-lie/
What is single ply?
Single ply is a term used to describe yarns composed of single strands of fibres. Fibres have to be good quality, long staple fibres which is why the best fabrics are made using single ply yarns. Lesser quality fibres are shorter, so they have to be plied together into multiple strands for strength, which also results in a coarser, thicker yarn. Manufacturers often misrepresent each of the plied strands as a separate thread, artificially inflating thread count. Our sheets are made exclusively using single ply construction.
How deep are your fitted sheets?
Our fitted sheets have a wall depth of 40cm to snugly fit most mattresses.
Do you have any certifications on your products?
We use fabrics which are Oeko-Tex certified to be free of harmful chemicals. Find out more on our blog https://www.thegoodsheet.com.au/blog/what-is-oeko-tex/
What is the difference between percale and sateen?
All of our bedding is made using premium 100% long-staple combed cotton. The difference between percale and sateen comes down to the type of weave, and which is right for you is a matter of preference.
Percale is a one-over, one-under weave which results in a durable, cool and crisp fabric. Light and very breathable, it's the perfect all-rounder and appreciated by warm sleepers. It continues getting softer and better with use.
Sateen is a four-over, one-under weave so the fabric is smoother, silkier and drapes more closely to your skin. It is soft and more wrinkle-resistant.
Can I mix and match bedding?
All our bedding is available separately so you can choose exactly what you like.
Our sets come bundled in single colours and sizes so sets cannot be mixed during the ordering process, however if you would like a different colour for part of a set, you can leave us a note at checkout or email us with your request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are your sheets thick, hotel-style sheets?
No, our sheets are lightweight because we use very fine yarns and true thread count. They are still durable, smooth and will not pill but they are not heavyweight. We will be introducing a heavier weight percale sheet in future, for updates please subscribe to our newsletter.
How do I care for my bedding?
To extend the life of your bedding we recommend washing in cool to warm water using a good quality gentle liquid detergent. Line dry if possible. Avoid using fabric softeners and chlorine bleach. For more information on product care please see our Care Guide.
Should I wash bedding before use?
Yes, we recommend washing all bedding products before use to remove any residues.

Plastics in packaging.
We try to minimise our use of plastic, that's why our products come in a sturdy, reusable tote bag, perfect for the weekend markets. We chose not to use drawstring bags as often we accumulate more of them than we can use. We do currently use plastic Australia Post satchels to weatherproof your package, but we are looking at alternatives.
