Sheets are essential to every bed. No one likes to sleep on a bed made with thin, slick, and slippery sheets! If you want your bed to be the ultimate sanctuary from the winter cold, your bed needs to have luxurious sheets with substance, weight, and comfort!

There’s nothing better than climbing into bed and laying on comfy 100% cotton sheets after a long, chilly day. Here at Red Land Cotton, our sheets are constructed with long staple cotton spun into a thicker yarn that will add comfort to any bed this winter. We pride ourselves on the fact that our sheets are constructed to last with a heavier weight than most sheets found in department stores. Using a larger yarn size with an open percale weave means that our sheets are crisp and breathable, but also warm and snuggly. You get the best of both worlds when you get sheets from Red Land Cotton. With about 1lb of cotton per square yard of fabric, our sheets are perfect to use on cold winter nights!
