Unused Vintage 1960s Candy Tone Sheets & Pillowcases Twin
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a pair of late 1950s or early 1960s Candy Tone sheets & pillowcases made in a green on white striping. These 1960s Candy Tone sheets & pillowcases are still wrapped in their original cellophane. They were made in Canada By Dominion Textile Co. Limited Montreal under the Tex-Made brand name. Dominion Textile was founded in 1905 and closed in 1998 - it was a household name in Canada. The Tex-Made trademark was registered in 1947 - I would assume that these pillowcases date to the 1960s, but possibly late 1950s. The pillowcase label reads “2 Pillow Cases Finished Size 42” while the sheets label reads “Twin Bed 72x100 Finished Size Made in Canada”. The cotton used for these 1960s Candy Tone sheets & pillowcases has 136 threads per square inch. There is a small perforation to the cellophane at the bottom of the sheets packaging, so there is a bit of soiling in that small area - you would want to launder the sheets at least. The sheets package to this 1960s Candy Tone sheets & pillowcases set contains two sheets and measures 9” by 11” by 2” and weighs 3 lbs and 3 oz while the pillowcases package measures 8 1/2” by 5 1/2” and weighs 11 oz. Difficult to find a full set of 1960s Candy Tone sheets & pillowcases like this - of course, the quality of the cotton from back then is superior to what they produce today, wonderful vintage bedding!
