High thread count bed sheets are widely regarded as the best bed sheets. Thread count is the criteria used to determine the quality of bed sheets. The thread count is the number of threads per square inch of fabric. The higher the thread count, the softer and more luxurious the bed sheets will be. For maximum durability and softness, thread counts in the 250 to 600 range typically produce the best bed sheets. Fabrics with thread counts above 600 are lighter and softer, but the smaller threads make them less durable.
The best bed sheets are well worth the cost. 100% Egyptian cotton bed sheets are widely known for their quality and durability. They are extremely soft with a luxurious feel to the fabric, and they don’t pill or produce much lint either. 100% Egyptian cotton bed sheets can last for decades with proper care. Cheaper polyester/cotton blends are not as soft and luxurious, but will save you money since they are less expensive to produce.
High thread count 100% cotton Sateen sheets are known for their lustrous sheen. The special process used for making Sateen sheets makes the cotton fibers stronger and more durable. This process also produces the sheen that Sateen sheets are known for. It’s important to note that Sateen sheets are prone to pilling and wrinkling.
Quality, comfort and style are the elements necessary to assure that one is getting the best bed sheets. Oh, it helps to get the right size too!! 🙂
