Housewife or Oxford flange? Don’t spend too much time googling pillowcases…
We’ve got all you could want right here! The Soak&Sleep bed linen collection has grown slowly and now features a range of classy, timeless designs as well as excellent quality basics. There’s a pillowcase here for every bed.
Depending on the range you choose, you can have Oxford pillowcases (with a flange or fabric border around the edges) or Housewife pillowcases (no border). Both types close with a flap at the back. You might want a plain pillowcase at the bottom, and an Oxford type on top.
Our expert says: “Our pillowcases are available in three sizes to match our pillow ranges. The most common size in the UK is standard. This measures 50cm x 75cm (20” x 29.5”). Superking pillowcases (sometimes referred to as king size) measure 50cm x 90m (20” x 35”). The extra 15cm of width means they meet in the middle to make the perfectly made bed. Lastly, square pillows measure 65cm x 65cm (26” x 26”) – they’re the decorative ones.”
