Eve sleep linnen sheets

Wow, what cool sheets. Color and everything.

20170922_172739

I got this nice package with the linnen sheet as a replacement for the cotton sheets that ripped during wash. I have not yet washed these sheets but they look way more durable. Both the linnen and cotton sheet comes in a really nice box.

The seam is much tighter together making the edge stronger

the buttons have two loops and make them twice as strong and durable.

The button and hole are perfectly sized this time making it really fast and easy to close the sheets.

The opening has extra stitching back and forth making it more rip proof.

These sheets are in every respect better than the cotton counterpart reviewed here. However I do prefer the feel of cotton rather than the rough feel of linnen. The linnen fabric also make the sheets feel warmer. Perfect for a winter comforter but could feel warm during summer. It is turning fall here now so I am a bit in between on the comfort zone.

Eve sleep sheets replacement mixups

Earlier I bought a set of sheets from Eve sleep. The quality was so bad that the sheets ripped in the first wash, check out the review here.

They were going to give me a replacement. Or so they said.

That was 12th of July. I just got my sheets last week end of September.

Now, please note that they did not reimburse the sheets. They just issued a new type of linnen sheets. These are completly different. While the orginal sheets are smooth to the touch, these are warmer and rougher. Cotton vs Linnen.

 

I did not hear back from them in a Month.

Month later, it is finally on the way.

The linnen sheets are better quality but they are also way different feel. I actually prefer cotton. Oh well…

EVE Sleep, the return, the nightmare

So this whole mattress thing was just a utter nightmare. I got Inkasso claims and UPS held me personally responsible for the lack proper paperwork. Some people might have just paid extra to make it go away.

So, what happened?

ups reply to tax

But Eve sleep do charge VAT (MOMS), so is this my problem. Short answer is: YES, YOU ARE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE that Eve fills out the correct forms and pay.

As Eve Sleep did not have their papers in order with UPS during my 100 day trial, where I was supposed to enjoy the bed, extra bills started to arrive. Keep in mind that everything is paid for during orginal purchase “with VAT” but UPS wants ME to fix this and holds me personally responsible for EVE sleep’s lack of filling out forms.

Now Kudos to Eve Sleep customer support team. Really amazing people and they helped me. Without them I would have a huge problem getting this to go away since I am personally responsible for paying tax

Eve sleep wants to fix it

Wonder if more Norwegians have had this Issue? Please note that EVE paid for this directly to UPS and they dropped their claim. But it took weeks of back and forth mailings.

Finally Bring arrived to pick up the mattress, they came almost two weeks later that our agreed pickup date, but at least they came at all.

I got the refund to my account and everything with the mattress has been settled. I did not have to keep the box or any plastics, they just took the mattress and left.

It was not hassle free for me and the mattress was not any good for my back. I ended up buying a Jensen Majestic at a way higher price but also way softer and I pick it up myself so NO MORE UPS.

EVE sleep sheets – low quality

20170623_183751

Once I got the sheets I had a feeling that the craftsmanship was sub par. At that point I could not quite put my finger on it, but after three cycles in the washing machine at 40 degrees with 800 RPM my suspicion was confirmed.

This is the program:

20170708_025528

The Eve sheets have a longer seam length than my other “normal priced” bedding. This “longer” seam means that there are less supporting points and thus it is weaker. The seam where the sheet opening for the duvet is also not reinforced like on my other normal sheets:

The craftsmanship on buttons to close the duvet opening is also not very good. Several of the openings were too small and I had to apply a lot of force to get the button through. the buttons also have only one loop. most buttons on heavy duty equipment are two lopped (4 holes) for added strength.

On the positive side, there are a fastening strap for the duvet.

But overall, you are better of getting proper sheets from your store. These sheets are just really bad quality and the color is again only boring white.

 

EVE sleep pillow and casing

Foam pillows are special and I have always wanted one, but just never got around to switch out my down pillow, until now.

The Full package:

At the a great price you get the Eve foam pillow, duvet (dyne), and the mattress. So I did just that. In addition I decided to get the full bed linen package, the full deal and the real Eve experience. I mean if this is their core business it has to be good.

The Sheets are plain white cotton and looks like hotel sheets. The linen seem is okay and the touch of the material is okay. I don’t think it is as high thread count and soft feel of hotel sheets but it seems okay. I have to try it.

Color of your choice:

There is only white, which means that I will not get more sheets as white is boring. I would not get these sheets for a larger bed either again since white is boring. Picture below does not feature the Eve bed sheet as I am using a jersey stretch sheet instead, I should switch. Just not right today 🙂

But is it any good?

I have to try it for a night or three. Eve recommends 30 days but I am not tormenting myself for 30 days. I am going to return this if it does not fell okay soon or significantly better every day. There is a 30 day trial on the pillow.

Eve Sleep Mattress – Norway version

You might have seen the ads on Facebook, but you have the same question as everyone else. Is it any good?

I have been looking to buy a new bed for 3 months now. I have been to several bed stores and looked at several beds. I have laid in them for a long time and relaxed in the store.

If Eve can deliver the same quality as a 20.000NOK ($2500) mattress then Eve is cheap. If not you are just fooling your self. When you are investing in a bed then you would want the best mattress at the best price. Emphasis on best mattress.

So how is Eve?

Delivery:

It was delivered two days early. That is good (and bad). They just ring the bell and you have to be home and prepared. If you are not then there is lots of logistics around picking it up from the UPS point.

The mattress came in a box that seems like it is too small. It was impossible to take it out from that box. I had to use a heavy duty knife to open the box. Be carefull not to damage the mattress! Also, in Norway we speak Norwegian and English. Not German.

The mattress cover is perfectly aligned in the edges, but that is not really a problem.

First impression:

Big mattress, thicker than the IKEA mattress I had. After sleeping on IKEA for more than 8 hours my back would be sore and it is painful. However it is cheap.

Eve is not soft! Not at all. Not compared to my real frame mattress bed. Eve is firm and there is a hint of memory foam as you sink in. I like soft beds and I was very disappointed. Eve is among the firmer foam mattresses.

The first night:

Tomorrow I will write more about the first night of sleep.

However, I am sceptical. My first impression is not good at all. I like soft mattresses and I expect to be disappointed.
