Re: Can you make american size sheets fit european mattresses?

So no it wouldn't fit a north american queen? I don't know the difference between a euro single bed, euro double bed, and a north american queen. I live in the usa & never been to Europe.

See this page on Wikipedia for a handy chart.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bed_size

An American queen size is close to a European king size. Our deep-pocket USA queen sheets just barely fit our king bed here. If they were not deep-pocket they probably wouldn't fit.

We chose not to bring our comforter, because it was far too large to fit in any washing machine here.

I know what a north American queen is I have 1. I just don't know what the conversion is for a euro mattress.

The blanket I wanted to get is in a euro mattress size not American mattress size. So I didn't know if it would fit or not.
