PRODUCT FAQ

SHEETS

WHAT IS YOUR THREAD COUNT?
All of our bed sheets are 140 thread count, just like our 1920’s inspiration. We couple a thicker yarn with an open weave to give you the perfect balance of softness and breathability. The result? Everything you need for a comfortable and restful night’s sleep.

ARE 140 THREAD COUNT PRODUCTS INFERIOR?
Not at all! Our linens are exact replicas of our 1920's inspiration bedding. We only use our finest long staple cotton to weave a substantial single-ply yarn. The combination of our thread count, our cotton, and our yarn size make a luxuriously soft fabric that is also breathable.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "NATURAL" & "WHITE"
Our "White" products are a traditional white. Our "Natural" products are a creamy ecru or light sand, the color of our cotton right off of the weaver. You'll also see flecks of the leaves and stems from the cotton plant.

IS ONE COLOR SOFTER THAN ANOTHER?
Some customers find our white to be “softer.” During the bleaching process, all impurities are removed from the fabric. This results in a “smooth” finish. Our natural sheets aren’t bleached and therefore feature more vestiges of the cotton plants that could be considered more textural. The truth is, both colors are exceptionally soft and breathable. Choose the one that best suits your decor.

WHAT COMES IN A SET OF SHEETS?
Our sheet sets come with 1 Flat Sheet, 1 Fitted Sheet, and 2 Pillowcases.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SHEET SETS?
All of our sheets feature our signature fabric and breathable weave construction. The primary differences are the decoration on each set. You can choose from our decorative hemstitching on our Red Land Classic sheets, an American cotton lace trim on our Madeline Gray Sheets, a printed ticking stripe pattern on our Lawrence Ticking Stripe Sheets or a choose a simple 3” hemmed sheet set with our Bankhead Basic Collection.

CAN I PURCHASE JUST A FLAT SHEET?
Yes! You can completely customize your sleeping preferences with our "Build Your Own Bed" option. Our flat sheets, fitted sheets, and pillowcases can all be bought separately.  

DO YOUR SHEETS WRINKLE?
We appreciate wrinkles because they are the result of our all-natural process! We do not use any chemicals on our fabric that prevent wrinkling; therefore, our linens do have a slight wrinkle. Remove them from the dryer promptly after the drying cycle to help prevent wrinkling. We also find that drying your sheets on a line or laying flat to dry prevents significant wrinkling. You can also take your sheets out of the dryer slightly before the cycle ends and hang them to dry.

DO YOUR SHEETS SHRINK?
If you follow our care instructions, there should be little to no shrinkage as our sheets are pre-shrunk in the finishing process. However, if you choose to wash your sheets on hot water or dry them on high heat, some shrinkage will occur. We recommend washing in cold or warm water and tumble dry on low heat for best results.

DO YOU MAKE THE COMFORTER OR IS IT JUST A COVER?
We do not make comforters at this time. Currently, we only produce duvet covers.

WHAT IS A PERCALE WEAVE?
Percale is a basic over under weave that is closely woven. It is a plain-weave fabric often used for bed covers. It has medium weight, is firm and smooth with no gloss, and warps and washes very well.


TOWELS

DO THE TOWELS COME IN SETS?
All of our towels are sold separately so you can customize how many bath towels, bath sheets, hand towels or washcloths you need or want.

WHAT DOES A 2 PLY TOWEL MEAN?
The term 2-ply simply means 2 single ply strands of yarn twisted together to derive a heavier more substantial yarn with twice the amount of cotton per strand of yarn. Our towels are the only two-ply cotton towels made in the United States.

WHAT IS THE GSM OF YOUR TOWEL? HOW DENSE IS YOUR TOWEL?
Our towels are approximately 620 GSM.

ARE YOUR TOWELS LOOPER OR SHAVED?
Our towels are looped and not shaved.

DO YOU MAKE THE TOWELS WITH A WOVEN SELVAGE EDGE?
Yes, our towels are woven all the way to the selvage edge to create a more durable towel.


PILLOWCASES

ARE YOUR PILLOWCASES ENVELOPE STYLE OR REGULAR?
Our pillowcases are a regular design with an opening at the bottom of the case.

DO THE LUMBAR PILLOWS COME WITH INSERTS?
Our lumbar pillows covers do not come with the inserts. We recommend purchasing your 9”x18” pillow insert from pillowdecor.com.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE LUMBAR PILLOW INSERTS?

PRODUCT CARE FAQ

WHAT ARE YOUR CARE & WASHING INSTRUCTIONS?
We recommend washing before first use. Please machine wash in cold water, do not use bleach and tumble dry on low heat and remove promptly OR lay flat to dry. Use a warm iron if desired. Do not dry clean.

CAN I USE BLEACH?
We do not recommend the use of bleach as it can discolor the linens and degrade the quality of the fibers. We do recommend the All-Purpose Bleach Alternative From The Laundress.

WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND IN REPLACEMENT OF BLEACH?
We recommend a bleach alternative made by The Laundress. We sell the product in our store and on our website here.

DO I HAVE TO IRON MY SHEETS?
It’s entirely up to you! Our linens are not finished with harsh, anti-wrinkling chemicals so there will be a slight wrinkle in the fabric. Most of our customers don’t feel the need to iron their sheets. If you want a truly “no-iron” sheet,  our products might not be right for you.

WHAT ARE THE CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR BATH TOWELS?
We recommend washing before first use. Wash with warm water with like colors. Do not use bleach to avoid discoloration and damage to the integrity of the fibers. Tumble dry in the dryer on low.

SUPPLY CHAIN FAQ

WHERE ARE YOUR SHEETS MADE?
Our sheets are crafted from cotton grown exclusively on our family farm in Moulton, Alabama. Our cotton is spun into yarn in Graniteville, South Carolina. The yarn is woven into fabric by Hamrick Mills in Gaffney, South Carolina. Our fabric is then either finished in Flintstone, Georgia, at Yates Bleachery or at Santee Printworks in Sumter, South Carolina. From there, our fabric is sent to different cut and sew facilities in the South. Our most prominent facility is located right off main street in our hometown.

WHERE ARE YOUR TOWELS MADE?
Our towels are crafted from cotton grown on our family farm in Moulton, Alabama. Our cotton is spun into yarn and twisted in Graniteville, South Carolina. From there, the yarn is delivered to 1888 Mills in Griffin, Georgia, where our towels are woven, finished and cut and sewn into the finished product.

WHERE IS THE LACE MADE?
Our lace is made from American Cotton in New Jersey.


FARMING FAQ

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SUSTAINABLY GROWN?
Our cotton is rain fed, never irrigated, and produced under the most up-to-date and sustainable farming techniques. That means planting cover crops in the winter to give our soil good protection from frost and supplying a source of nutrition to local wildlife. It means following strict quality standards set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. No one loves the land they farm more than we do, and we are always working hard to keep it healthy and sound so that we can continue to do what we love.

IS YOUR COTTON ORGANIC?
We are a conventional cotton farm and therefore do not subscribe to the term “organic.” Founder Mark Yeager has spent years implementing sustainable farming practices so our farm can produce an unrivaled crop with minimal impact to the surrounding environment. Because our plants have been bred to resist certain pests and weeds, we use only the herbicides and pesticides necessary to ensure the finest crop possible.

DO YOU USE GMO SEED?
We do use genetically modified seed on our farm. This allows us to use fewer pesticides and herbicides during our growing season, because the plants are bred to resist certain pests and weeds. In our opinion, this is simply smart science.

DO YOU USE PESTICIDES AND HERBICIDES ON YOUR COTTON? WHAT DO YOU USE?
We run a conventional cotton farm and, therefore, we do use pesticides and herbicides as we grow our crops. Applications of these products are only done when necessary and fall within the compliance dictated by the FDA. For more information on our pesticide and herbicide use, we recommend you watch our How It’s Grown video here: https://www.redlandcotton.com/blogs/news/how-its-grown-part-4


SIZING FAQ

HOW DEEP ARE THE POCKETS ON THE FITTED SHEET?
We offer 2 pocket depths for optimal fit on your mattress. Our 16" deep pocket can accommodate up to a 20" deep mattress. You can also select our 14" pocket for a more shallow mattress. If you have an older mattress or one of the newer mattresses on the market, consider using these fitted sheet suspenders. They keep any fitted sheet tight and sleek on your mattress.

IF I HAVE A 14” MATTRESS SHOULD I GET THE 14” OR THE 16” FITTED SHEET?
We recommend going with our 16” option if your mattress measures 14” or greater. However, everyone’s bedding preferences are different. Please try your fitted sheet on your bed before laundering to ensure you love the fit.

CUSTOMIZATION & WHOLESALE FAQ

CAN YOU MAKE CUSTOM TEA TOWELS?
We are happy to discuss any custom needs you may have. The tea towel minimum for any custom order is 150. We do not accept any custom work October-December.

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM SHEETS?
We are happy to discuss any custom needs you may have.

We do not wholesale our products at this time. It is our goal to remain a "direct to consumer" company so that we can provide the best prices possible to our customers.

We know our items are an investment and we want you to be able to fully assess the sleep-ability of our fabric rather than just feeling a few inches of cloth.


GENERAL FAQ

WHERE IS YOUR STORE LOCATED?
Our headquarters and storefront are located at 558 Lawrence Street in Moulton, Alabama 35650.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STAY UPDATED ON PRODUCTS & SALES?
Make sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest & Twitter. We also recommend signing up for our email list!

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE IN THE PRICE?
Our price is determined by the cost of labor that goes into making each piece. Our Red Land Classic, for example, features 2 lines of decorative hemstitching that take considerable time. Our Bankhead Basics feature a simple 3” hem, which takes less time and is, therefore, more economical. All of our sheets feature the same soft, breathable fabric.

WHY ARE THE PRODUCTS EXPENSIVE?
We are proud to manufacture all our products in the USA, starting with the cotton grown in our fields in Lawrence County Alabama. All of our employees on the farm and at Red Land Cotton earn a livable wage here in the U.S. Subsequently, all of our manufacturer’s employees earn at or above minimum wage. American labor will always be more expensive than labor overseas and that shows on the price tag. We feel that it’s a price worth paying to support our neighbors, our economy, and the American dream. We understand that buying American-made products can mean spending a bit more, but we hope that means investing in our quality over quantity and our dedication to customer service.

WILL YOU EVER MAKE MORE COLORS?
Currently, we are working on getting our basic colors perfect before we add any additional colors to our offerings.
