Hommey’s Guide to Bedding

Choosing a new bedding set should be fun and exciting. It’s why we spent a long time perfecting every thread in our bedding collection so you can rest easy.

Discussing some frequently asked questions, here’s everything you need to know about our bedding. From key features to bundle savings, learn more about what makes our collection premium, accessible and unapologetically Hommey.

What are the features and benefits of your bedding?

Our bedding collection is made with 100% organic cotton and is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified. We’ve stonewashed our bedding for a distinctly soft feel, finishing them with colour-matched zippers for quick and easy bed changing.

When choosing the material for our bedding, we went with organic cotton that is woven with a superior sateen technique for high breathability. Not to be confused with satin, this fabric is a great choice for all seasons as it helps regulate body temperature, allowing your skin to happily breathe.

How can your bedding feel premium with a 240 thread count?

A thread count is the measure of the number of threads woven into one square inch of fabric. This is calculated by counting the number of horizontal threads and the number of vertical threads which make up the weave of the fabric.

While a thread count can tell us the amount of threads, it cannot tell us the quality of them—and quality should be the main point of consideration when investing in a fabric. In short, thread count has nothing to do with a fabric’s breathability, comfort or softness.

When designing our collection, we wanted to use a high-quality fabric that was responsibly sourced. This led us to choose 100% organic cotton, which had been woven with a superior sateen technique. Cotton sateen fabric has a smooth and silky texture, providing a luxurious feel against the skin.

By carefully choosing this premium material, we discovered that a 240 thread count was the perfect balance between softness and affordability without sacrificing the high-quality standard of Hommey products. It’s also easy to care for, durable and does not require special handling.

Is your bedding eco-friendly and sustainable?

The entire Hommey bedding range is made with 100% organic cotton and is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified. OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is a label for textiles tested for harmful substances (like toxic chemicals) and is the benchmark for textile safety, from yarn to finished product.
This means our bedding collection contains no harmful dyes and substances, to humans or the environment. Made from 100% organic cotton, this means no pesticides or chemicals were used in the cotton production; supporting sustainability, soil health and regenerative farming.

What colours are available and do you offer styling advice?

Our bedding collection is available in a range of sizes and in 12 shades—including our iconic Hommey stripes. We designed our bedding intentionally to be mixed and matched, and launched our online Bed Builder so you can have fun curating your dream bundle.
If you’re more of an IRL person, we offer styling advice in-store at all locations. Chat with our team for styling tips or recommendations for your space. We love seeing any pictures or videos of your home, and will spend time working towards your personal interior goals.

How do I care for my Hommey bedding?

We recommend a warm machine wash around 30°C and drying your Hommey bedding naturally by hanging it. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. If you would like to iron your bedding, make sure you use a cool setting. Always ensure bedding is completely dry before storing.

Is your bedding hypoallergenic?

Yep, all Hommey bedding is hypoallergenic.

Why doesn’t my doona fit inside your quilt cover?

Not all doonas are made the same. Hommey bedding is made to fit standard Australian bedding sizes. If you’re having trouble picking a size, reach out to us or visit us in-store and we can help you decide.

Do you offer savings on buying bedding bundles?

Yes! Through our online Bed Builder, you can save 20% off a Hommey bedding bundle. You can also save 20% off the same bundle in-store, if you prefer to touch and feel before making your decision.
