Re: Show me your bed sheets

I crew a lot and don't like to use others sheets. I carry Cocoon cotton Travelsheet on all my trips. It's plenty roomy enough so you don't feel like you are butterfly in a cocoon. Since it's more compact, it's easy to wash and hang out on the lifelines. There are many colors from red, green, white and plaid. I have white just because I like white sheets. The only way I can keep them white is to use bleach. when possible, I take a shower or french bath before I crawl in.

Re: Show me your bed sheets

Fleece. Mmmmmm. Mine are warm colors (tan and brown) so just wash and don't worry about them. I'm also in a colder climate than the Carib and Med, but think they would hold up well in warmer conditions, too. One thing I can't get rid of is the down comforter that I've had for 20 years now. It's amazingly easy to wash/dry as long as you have access to a large machines. But not so good when the port lights leak....

Re: Show me your bed sheets

Brand new white sheet. Went to bed sparkling clean. Slightly yellow-ish sweat marks. Interior of the boat is around 32c at night with all hatches open, and non-opening windows covered to prevent sunlight getting in during the day.

Worse still. In the med if you hang something white out, you get brown/red dust from the Sahara. It gets on the line, so you need to wash that. Then is gets on the pegs so you need to make sure they are all clean before touching anything.

Knew I shouldn't have bought white again but couldn't resist.

Re: Show me your bed sheets

100% linen bedding is a good choice. It's crinkly but that just adds charm, don't bother ironing it. It's quick drying why is v handy and it lasts a v long time. Some good options here https://www.secretlinenstore.com/ and here https://audenhome.com/
