Made from a wonderfully stretchy, silky nylon/spandex blend fabric, these compression sheets offer gentle pressure to help alleviate sleep troubles. The soft, shiny finish is smooth on sensory-sensitive skin and the tight fit and wrap-around style makes it hard to remove by children.
The sheet slips over any standard twin mattress like a tube, completely surrounding the mattress. Our sheets are a generous length of approximately 70", giving plenty of room for complete coverage. The high-quality, thick fabric gives plenty of stretch. We use a special stretch stitching when sewing to ensure maximum stretch while providing a strong seam to prevent breakage. The finished edges (also with a special stretch stitch) prevent the ends from rolling. (See pictures for an example of our special stitching).
Compression sheets make a great alternative to weighted blankets. The science is the same: deep pressure stimulates "feel-good" hormones in the body like melatonin and serotonin, helping the body to settle down, relax, fall asleep, and stay asleep. Compression sheets are a gentler pressure, especially nice for sensory-sensitive kids. The sensation has been described as "a hug that lasts all night!"
Please note: As a standard, sheets are sewn with both ends open. We can sew the bottom shut at your request. If you would like a closed bottom, please leave us a note when you check out!
In-stock colors will vary based on fabric availability.
