- Do you have any wrinkle-free sheets?
QE Home no longer carries wrinkle-free sheets, as these sheets commonly use harsh chemicals (such as formaldehyde) in the treatment of wrinkle-free sheets. These chemicals tend to deteriorate quickly over time, which causes the sheets to begin wrinkling again.
We take pride in sourcing natural, sustainable, and eco-friendly materials for our luxurious Bamboo Cotton, Eucalyptus Luxe TENCEL™ Lyocell and BeechBliss TENCEL Modal™ products. Due to this, however, your sheets will naturally wrinkle. We recommend hanging your sheets to dry to prevent significant wrinkling, or taking your linens out 5 minutes before the cycle ends and letting them dry flat.
Please browse our Laundering & Fabric Care page for proper washing and drying instructions to get the most out of your Luxury Sheets!

- What are Thread Counts?
The standard method for calculating thread count is the number of vertical threads (warp) and horizontal threads (weft) in a single square inch of fabric. The importance of thread count depends on the type of bed linen in question, and your own personal sleeping preferences. The general idea is that higher thread counts = softer sheets, and the more likely it will wear well — and even soften — over time.
However, this is not always the case. The quality of the threads tend to matter more than the count, and ideal thread counts usually sit between 300 and 600. Many companies use, shall we say, creative ways of bolstering their thread counts in order to appeal to consumers — despite there being no marked increase in quality. Only a finite number of threads can be woven into a square inch, so take exuberant thread counts with a grain of salt. Too many threads can make products too warm, too heavy, and less breathable.
- How deep are your fitted sheets?
We proudly carry a range of fitted sheet sizes that accommodate both standard and deep mattresses. Our luxury sheet lines can accommodate up to 18” mattress depth, while our regular lines (including our organic cotton sheets) accommodate up to a 15” depth. All our Aruba brand sheeting options (i.e. our Bamboo Cotton, Eucalyptus Luxe TENCEL™ Lyocell and BeechBliss TENCEL Modal™ products) feature our innovative Stay Snug™ fitted sheet technology for a smoother, more flexible sheet that cinches tightly into place.
You can find detailed information on our sheeting measurements by reading our blog post on How to Find Your Perfect Sheet Size.
- Do your duvet covers have corner ties?
Yes! Our duvet covers have inner twill ties for securing the duvet in place to the anchor loops featured on all our duvets. There are 8 ties on our Double, Queen, King, and Super King sizes, and our twin sizes come with 4 ties.
- How do I care for my duvet?
Please visit our Duvet FAQ for comprehensive care instructions for Down, Down Alternative, Silk, and Wool Duvets.
- What is the difference between Quilts and Coverlets?
Our quilt sets are typically made of a more breathable fabric, such as cotton or a cotton blend, and have a slightly thicker filling. They often feature detailed embellishments.
Our coverlet sets have a thinner filling and are made of microfiber or recycled polyester, which is less breathable. We recommend using coverlets as a cost-effective way to embellish your home.
Both quilts and coverlets are ideal as a lightweight layer for those who tend to run too warm at night or during warmer seasons. They’re also great for cabins, cottages, and campsites.
- My memory foam pillow has a smell. How do I get rid of the smell?
Pillows may initially impart a slight odour due to their protective plastic packaging. To freshen the pillow, remove it from the plastic and let the pillow air out — the scent should dissipate fairly quickly.
