“The sheet that is tailored to fit the mattress like a glove”.
At DK Glovesheets Ltd, we have been manufacturing the original fitted sheets in the UK since 1950. Our original sheet design still sets the benchmark for other fitted sheets in terms of fit, quality, and sustainability.
All Glovesheets are made from top quality 100% combed cotton interlock (1). Interlock is a premium double sided Jersey with increased quality, softness, thickness and strength. This is one reason they last so well, and means that they should last a number, potentially even a few generations of children. We occasionally have Grandmothers calling the office, because after 30 years of use they think they might need to buy another set!
The deep corners (2) and elastic edge keep them firmly attached to the mattress, without slipping or rucking. We use a special quality elastic to neatly finish the opening, (3) and allow easy changing of the sheets. This elastic also dries really quickly after washing.
We carefully and responsibly source our cotton yarns, which are then knitted and dyed in the UK, before being turned into exceptional quality sheets in our family run factory in Dormansland, Surrey.
Glovesheets come in our full range of colours, and sizes to fit most nursery mattresses. If you can’t find the size you are looking for, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
The vast majority of our Glovesheets are produced from 100% organic cotton and GOTS certified by Soil Association Certification. Organic yarn is grown without the use of artificial insecticides, pesticides, or fertilisers, using methods that are ecological, economical, and socially sustainable. Methods such as crop rotation and the use of natural means to suppress insect attack are used to maintain the soil fertility and control pests. This helps to promote a healthy environment and maintain biological diversity. GM crops are strictly prohibited. Look out for the GOTS logo on the packaging.
