  • Pillowcases are the covers for your Sleeping Pillows. A Pillowcase is different than a Sham, a Pillowcase is open only at one end and generally contains a flange on the opening face where the fabric edge is turned over and sewn.

  • A pillow sham typically contains a tuck flap located in the back of the sham and are frequently finished with a flange on all (4) sides. Shams are often used for decorative purposes but many can be slept on. Sizes of pillowcases are generally Standard or King, however sometimes (but not often) they are made in a Queen size...

Pillow shams often have a flange or cording on all of their edges

Vero sells its Pillowcases separately from our Sheet Sets, as many individuals might use or like Standard Pillows on a King bed or many customers use both King Size and Standard Size Pillows on their bed.

  • Many people also prefer a Standard Pillow to a King Size Pillow as they are easier to manipulate or position to where you want them during sleep.
  • Vero’s Standard Pillowcases are designed to fit both a Standard Pillow as well as a Queen Pillow for those that sleep with a Queen size Pillow.
  • For one layer of Pillows use either (2) King Pillowcases or (3) Standard Pillowcases to fill the width of a King bed. Use (2) Standard Pillowcases to fill the width of a full or queen sized bed.
