Valentines Day surprise for your Lover?

By , January 25, 2017 2:28 pm

With Valentines Day fast approaching the question troubling many people is…..”what can I get my lover to make it an extra special day……and a night to remember?”

A  surprising and saucy answer might be  Hi Gloss PU Bed Sheets from Wiltshire based bed linen company Between the Sheets.

Visually the impact that this bedding can make to your bed room is amazing and makes a stunning stage for your Valentines Day performance!


PU sheets are really tactile, soft and comfortable and are water resistant and are fantastic when used with massage oils and gels for slippery play.

Many people think PVC when they see shiny fabrics – but PVC was widely in the 70’s and 80’s  for clothing but is far from ideal for use in bedding.

Hi- Gloss PU – polyeurathane is safe for use next to your skin, and this lovely material has a strong jersey base so these sheets are strong and soft and can  be easily machine washed.

For those who like to explore their more kinky side there is a “50 Shades” version complete with corner straps for you to add Silk ties or restraints.

Here’s some great ideas for a sexy and kinky time this Valentines Day.

  1. Enjoy the look on your partners’ face when you reveal the stunning effect it has on your bed… and them.
  2. Experience the wild sensations when you add a massage gel or oil to the mix.
  3. PU sheets are fantastic for messy food fun with whipped cream or chocolate body paint!
  4. Try the 50 shade version and take your experiences to another level.

And..…. when the funs over you can just pop into wash!

Overheating in bed a problem for you?

By , September 23, 2015 12:38 pm

“Night Sweats” Get relief from Night Sweats

Overheating in bed or “Night Sweats”  is a common condition affecting up to 40% of people at one time or another. As a sometime sufferer myself I know how distressing the condition can be and how uncomfortable it is when you wake to find yourself literally bathed in sweat. It took me a long time to find things that can help . I tried pure silk bed linen and it offered a degree of improvement because natural fibres are more efficient at regulating your body temperature while you sleep. But the  one thing that really helped I found was Bamboo Bed Linen.

Bamboo the New Fabric

Bamboo is a relatively new fabric which surpasses even Silk in it’s ability to keep you cool at night. Bamboo has superb properties of moisture absorbence and wicking . 100% Bamboo Bed Linen is the most effective bed linen to help combat night sweats.

Breathable Fabric

Breathable with temperature control. Bamboo fibre has millions of tiny micro-gaps and micro-holes that make it excellent at moisture absorption and ventilation. This unparalleled microstructure means that bamboo fibre has natural wicking capabilities . Keeping you cool – comfort sleeping the year round.

From Plant to Super Soft Fabric

It may seem unlikely that the woody plant that we all know can make a luxurious, soft fabric but it does! It is produced in a similar way to other natural plant based fabrics. The plant material is pulped releasing the cellulose and the natural antibacterial properties of the Bamboo. The pulp is then refined, spun into a soft yarn and woven into fabric of luxurious quality.

If you regularly suffer from night sweats you should always visit your Doctor as there can be many underlying causes for the condition.

Satin Sheets and Bed Linen – Soft Sensual and Luxurious

By , June 12, 2012 10:53 am

Looking for Satin Bed Linen. What is Satin?

One of the problems people find when they start looking for Satin Bed Linen is there is a common misconception about the term. Satin is the term for a fabric weave, not a specific fabric.

Satin is a Weave

The satin weave is characterized by four or more weft yarns floating over a warp yarn or vice versa. This explains the even sheen, as unlike in other weaves, the light reflecting is not scattered as much by the fibres, which have fewer tucks.If a fabric is formed with a satin weave using filament fibres such as silk, polyester or nylon it is termed a Satin. If the yarns used are short-staple yarns such as cotton, the fabric formed is considered a Sateen.

High Quality Satin Silk and Polyester Satin

High quality Satin is produced in Pure Silk and also can be found in Polyester. Both of these are woven fabrics. There are knitted Polyester and Nylon Satins which are very poor quality and should be avoided at all costs. The highest quality Satin Silk is woven from the finest Mulberry Silk. The best quality of Polyester Satin requires an extremely high quality of Polyester Thread combined with a Silk Satin weave. Much then depends on dyeing and subsequent processes to achieve a Silk like fabric.


Both Silk Satin and Polyester Satin of the very highest quality with a soft, sensual and tactile feel are available in the unique ranges of Luxury Bed Linen from Between the Sheets. Click Here for more information

Bed Linen Terms explained

Definitions of Bed Linen Types


A duvet, (the word comes from the French for down) is also known as a continental quilt. A Duvet is a soft flat bag traditionally filled with down or feathers, or often a micofibre filling and used on a bed , usually with no other bed cover.A duvet is similar to a comforter and/or a quilt in that a duvet is also composed of two layers of fabric with an insulation substance between. However, the difference between a duvet and a comforter and/or quilt is that the duvet is to be placed inside a duvet cover.

Duvet Cover

A giant pillowcase-like covering that fits over a duvet. It is open on one end, typically closed by snaps. The purpose a duvet cover is to protect the duvet and be decorative.
In North America Duvets are less common than Europe where Comforters are more commonly used.


Is a bed covering which is similar to  duvet in style but usually made of decorative fabric and designed to be used without a cover.
Comforters often feature decorative machine quilting patterns to hold the fill in place that add feature to the design of the item.
Comforters are usually used with Pillow Shams.

Pillow Shams

Usually made of the same fabric that makes a comforter or quilt.They are a decorative cover for a pillow.  Because they are purely decorative  you don’t sleep on pillows covered by a pillow sham.They are usually removed from the bed during the night or may be placed behind the pillows and in front of the bed head. When making a bed, pillow sham covered pillows are usually placed on top or in front of pillows.

Fitted Sheet

A fitted sheet is designed to correctly fit on to your mattress and stay put. A fitted sheet properly manufactured will a. Be elasticated all the way around so that the tuck under your mattress stays put and the sheet does not ‘ping’ off during the night. And b.  Will be correctly sized for the dimensions of your mattress including the depth which can vary from 8″ – 20″ deep!
Many people have a problem finding the correct size for their bed . Please look at our Bed Size Guide where there is information on how to measure your bed and bed size gudes  to ensure you get the right fitted sheet for your bed. Be very careful that any fitted sheet is elasticated all the way round. Cheap, poorly made fitted sheets are often sold with pocket corners. These do not work and you will forever be remaking your bed! You may be interested in looking at our UK bed sizes post.

Flat Sheet

As it says a flat oblong piece of bed linen. Hemmed at edges. Good quality flat sheets often have a cuff at the top.


A Valance is a skirt of material which covers the bottom part of a bed between the base of a mattress and the floor.

There are  four main types of valance.

Hook and Loop Valance 

 Hook and loop (Velcro style) Valances are ideal for wooden beds, Hook and loop is supplied to stick to the underside of the bed frame and
the valance has Hook and loop attached and simply attach to the frame.

Platform Valance 

 Perfect for divan beds. Valances can be simply laid over the bed base beneath the mattress. These platform Valances always drape beautifully and remain firmly in place.

Split Corner Valance

The perfect valance for metal framed beds and four posters.

Collar Valance 

 The Collar valance simply tucks between the mattress and the bed base. Ideal for those with a heavier mattress.

A pillowcase is a decorative and protective bag for a pillow.  Pillowcases come in a very wide variety of sizes which vary from country to country.
