Think about the most comfortable bed you ever slept in. Remember how the sheets felt against your skin... soft, luxurious and inviting. It's easy to surround yourself in comfort when you know what you're looking for.
"Sheets are a textile - designed, fabricated and finished much like any garment. Ask yourself how long you expect to have the sheeting. As with any garment, you get what you pay for. Think about the amount of hours you spend in bed. If you're lucky, you are getting at least 6 - 8 hours of sleep a night. Almost the exact amount of time you spend at work. Shouldn't your bedding purchase make you feel as good as that blouse or skirt?"
Thread count: the higher the thread count, the denser the weave of the material.
This is important because density equals strength. However, buying the highest thread
count doesn't necessarily mean you have purchased the best sheet, why? - because.....
Cotton is one way to go. However, there are different levels/blends:
100% Egyptian cotton is the most expensive but will last the longest and is the most luxe.
100% Pima cotton is still really soft, but made of shorter fibers than Egyptian cotton.
Cotton/polyester blend is a combination of natural & synthetic fibers
makes this fabric exceptionally easy to care for, breathable and durable yet still soft and smooth.
Not done yet! Now pick your weave.....
What's in a weave?
The big factor for the finish & feel of a sheet, each weave provides different benefits.
Percale is lightweight & closely woven, percale bed sheets have a smooth finish and a crisp snap to them.
Sateen a fabric with more yarn surface on the face than other basic bed linen weaves, resulting
in an exceptionally soft sheet with a smooth, lustrous finish that most mimics silk or satin.
~~Most people prefer Sateen Weave Sheets by a factor of 80%~~
Flannel is brushed cotton that is measured by ounces of fabric per square yard instead of
thread count. recommended for colder climates and cozy sleeping.
Twill is a weave in which welt yarns are worked around warp yarns twice to
create the effect of diagonal lines or rib. Very durable but not as soft and comfy.
