Online Store Experience

I started off with buying the Uniqlo bedsheets online because that was the hype and so I was pretty excited to give it a go but I found that they don’t actually have matching sets and there were really weird sizes that I found like — Double and Semi Double?

Uniqlo’s sheets that I bought were packaged very simply with a bag as a free gift

Materials

Next, on their website I also found that they produced their bedsheets from 100% extra-long staple cotton (they use 37mm natural cotton fibres for their all their) which I found pretty interesting because I always thought cotton is just cotton. From a bit of research done I found that fabric with extra-long staple cotton tends to be stronger, softer and more durable and will fray less, pill less and wrinkle less.

Threadcount

While browsing I also couldn’t quite find what the threadcount was for the AIRism range (yes, I know threadcounts aren’t everything). According to the Kapas website, they use “real” 400 threadcount bedsheets because there are many brands that offer misleadingly high threadcount (e.g. >1,000 threadcount!) but actually involves spins many poor quality cotton fibres in a single yarn just to artificially boost the number. Which really explains why sometimes we pay so much for sub par bedsheets that cost a fortune but actually do not live up to standard.

Safety

Moving on to the next thing I found out about Kapas, was that their bedsheets are also Standard 100 certified by Switzerland-based Oeko-Tex®, to be free of harmful substances. While I do not have kids, this is a big YAY because I can now with a peace of mind gift this to friends and family this Christmas!

Pricing

One other thing that was a factor for me was the price point, being a recently employed person, I didn’t want to keep spending for sheets because they tore easily or because I didn’t enjoy my sleep very much. I wanted something that lasted which led me to more comparisons:

You can buy a full set in the same colour or mix and match to style your bedroom
