Crib Sheets — Elastic All the Way Around?

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

We field many questions about our crib sheets.  It is the bedding item that touches the baby the most–you could argue it is the most “important” part of the bedding ensemble for your new baby.

The most common question is if our crib sheets have elastic all the way around.  It is worth mentioning that ALL of our standard crib sheets all have elastic all the way around.  In the past 21 years we’ve made literally thousands of crib sheets–experimented with different cuts, fabrics, and crib mattresses.  When we make a crib sheet we are taking into consideration all of those different factors, and we’ve got a wealth of experience to make sure that we get it right.

Here’s what you get from a Carousel Designs fitted crib sheet:

  1. deep pockets to accomodate for shrinkage?  YES
  2. fine fabrics that are fit for sheeting?  YES
  3. elastic all the way around?  YES

Any other questions about our sheets?  Just ask!

In this video we demonstrate some of the features of that will better help you choose the perfect bedding for your nursery – primarily using the zoom imaging feature and ordering fabric swatches.

Let’s say you are designing a girl’s nursery. Clicking the baby girl bedding link quickly takes you to the section of our website dedicated to the girl’s nursery.

As you can see, there are also filters available for boys and gender neutral collections as well.

Maybe you like the Pink and chocolate damask collection and you’re interested in the four piece bedding set. To get a closer look at the bedding, simply click on the image and you will see a new zoom window appear. You can click and drag the mouse to view any section you would like to see better.

But because all monitors are different, we encourage you to have a fabric swatch sample sent to you. That way you can actually feel the fabric and make sure that the colors match your design requirements.

We usually mail swatches out within 24 hours so you can make your design decisions quickly.
