A standard full size mattress, also called a double mattress, measures 54 inches by 75 inches. While today these are commonly used for older children or single adults, they were once the norm for married couples. Our full size fitted sheets are extra-deep to accommodate mattresses up to 17 inches thick, so they’ll even work well with pillow top models or most added mattress enhancers.
Whether you’re dressing a bed for your teen or outfitting a small guest room, we have a lovely selection of full size sheets designed to provide comfort to the sleeper, in luxurious fabrics that will stand the test of time. And the soft neutral hues of many of our sheeting options are carefully selected to compliment nearly any decor, creating a palette that practically sings of peace and calming.
Choose Your Fabric Wisely
When you shop for bed sheets, there are a wealth of options on the market. With all of the confusion about fibers, thread count, and which materials make for a good night’s sleep, it’s easy to become overwhelmed.
At Peacock Alley you won’t find the latest gimmicks or some hot new technology that will prove to be worthless in a year’s time. Instead, our collection features classic weaves like percale and sateen, sourced from pure cotton. These time-honored favorites have been tried and tested over years, decades, or centuries. They’ve been in use for so long precisely because they’ve been proven to be an ideal sleeping solution that is comfortingly soft and breathable, and at the same time easy to care for.
Choosing a Weave
When it’s time to pick a weave for your full size sheets, be sure to weigh your options against the way you or your family members sleep. Our percale sheets are a plain weave that creates the soft, crisp feel of your favorite button-up cotton shirt. It’s light and breathable and perfect for those who sleep hot or who simply prefer this type of feel. Our lovely sateen sheets on the other hand, offer a tighter weave and slightly satin-like luster. They’re delightfully suited for snuggling up on those cold winter days, or for sleepers who crave a smoother touch.
Cotton is King
It’s hard to beat a good quality cotton for the ultimate sleeping experience. We’ve scoured the world to bring you cotton fabrics that are both soft and durable, for a level of comfort and quality you’re sure to love. And since cotton is a natural fabric, it allows for a level of breathability you simply won’t find in man-made fibers and blends.
Our cotton fabric is made from long staple or extra long staple fibers, which means it will stand the test of time. Shorter fibers are less expensive, but they tend to pill or fray with time. Our cottons will hold together much longer, and maintain their soft and smooth feel through wash after wash. And cotton is easy to care for too, so you can machine wash your bedding on the gentle cycle rather than having to take the time to hand wash sheets regularly.
We’ve long sourced some of the finest cotton sheeting from family-run fabric mills in Portugal and Italy. Additionally, we now offer a selection of Supima® cotton sheets in both sateen and percale weaves. This made in the USA brand of cotton is known for its quality and softness, and designed to rival even the finest European cotton fabrics. No matter which you choose, you’ll get a high quality, easy care, comfortable fabric that you’ll love sleeping on and under.
This is the Peacock Alley way. This is life. Well lived.
