Can you help me find sheets for a Tempur-Pedic mattress? I have brought Tempur sheets back from the US, but I can’t find them here.

Feather & Black, who supply Tempur beds, confirm that they do not sell special sheets branded by Tempur, as any of their  sheets which will fit a Tempur mattress. They do, however, sell Tempur mattress protectors.

I hope you can help me. I’m having difficulty finding a valance that fits a king-size bed with an 18 inch drop. I can find a white one, but I would like one in light pink, beige or pale blue.

Have you tried Bespokebedlinens? They can make valances to your size requirements, in either your own fabric or in a choice of Egyptian cottons or polyester cotton mixes.

I am looking for a brown velvet king size quilted bed throw…

My son is allergic to dust mites and I’ve been told that a silk duvet might be the answer. Is this right? If so, where can I find one?

Silk-filled duvets are naturally hypo-allergenic and resistant to dust mites, and also repel mould and mildew. They also seem to be very suitable for a British climate as the temperature-regulating properties of silk mean that they keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. Jasmine Silk can make them in any size or weight; What’s more, the Chinese believe that the amino acids in silk emit small particles called sleep factors, which are supposed to ease the nervous system, help you sleep better and improve your sense of well-being !
