Different Types of Waterbed Sheets
Our waterbed sheets come in many types, styles and sizes of waterbed sheets. We have 28 different sets of waterbed sheets that will suit the needs of all our customers. Below we will describe the different types and styles of waterbed sheets that we currently carry.
Sizes Available in our Waterbed Sheets
We carry three different sizes in our waterbed sheets. We carry Queen size, also sometimes known as California Queen, Super Single and King size, also known as California King. It is important to remember that in waterbed sheets, King size and California King size are exactly the same size.

Fabrics and Weaves Used in our Waterbed Sheets
Most of our waterbed sheets are made from 100% long staple single ply Egyptian Cotton. The two types of weave that these Egyptian Cotton waterbed sheets come in are sateen weave and percale.
Egyptian Cotton Sateen Weave
Sateen produces the sheen and softer feel through the use of a different structure in the weaving process. The sateen structure is four over, one under, placing the most threads on the surface, making it extremely soft, though slightly less durable than other weaves.
Egyptian Cotton Percale Weave
A percale weave has a thread count of about 200 or higher, and is noticeably tighter than the standard type of weave used for bed-sheets. It has medium weight, is firm and smooth with no gloss, and warps and washes very well. It is made from both carded and combed yarns. Percale fabrics are made in both solid colors and printed patterns. The finish of the fabric is independent of its weave, so it can be either printed or unprinted.
100% Brushed Microfiber
Microfiber consists of very fine threads of polyester and polyamide (nylon) that combine to form a single thread. Microfibers are so thin (100 times thinner than a single strand of human hair) that when they are woven together they create a surface area 40 times more than that of a regular fiber – creating an expanded surface area with dramatically enhanced absorbing power due to the capillary action of the fine threads
Types of Waterbed Sheets
We carry three different types of waterbed sheets. We have our unattached, attached and attached with pole attachments.
Unattached Waterbed Sheets
These work great on wood frame waterbeds. One of the most common complaints about waterbed sheets that are only pocketed on the corners is that the sides of the sheets tend to come up and expose the vinyl mattress. With California King "Fitted" sheets there is always plenty of sheet to reach the bottom of the mattress. The elastic band also keeps the sheets from "riding up". Once you try "California Fitted Style Waterbed Sheets" you'll never go back.
Attached Waterbed Sheets
This type of waterbed sheets have the fitted and flat sheet attached or sewn together at the foot. Many people prefer this type of waterbed sheet because the fitted sheet helps to keep the flat sheet in place on the waterbed since they are sewn together.
Waterbed Sheets with Pole Attachments
This type of waterbed sheet is also attached, sewn together at the footer to help keep them in place. But in addition to this, each corner has an attachment sewn on that a small pole slides into. This pole attachment is tucked under the waterbed mattress and helps to keep the fitted sheet in place. Many people like this type of waterbed sheet because they say the pole attachments help to keep the fitted sheet from riding up.
