How to Choose Your Sheet Set
Sheets are an important element of any well outfitted bed. They not only help define the style of the room with colors or patterns but can also be a major
factor in how comfortable a bed is to sleep in. The world of bed linens can be a bit complicated, so what do you need to know to pick out the best sheets
for your bed?
When choosing a sheet set, one of the most important factors to look at is thread count. Thread count is a standardized measurement of the
number of threads that are used in a square inch of fabric. A higher thread count usually means that the sheets use finer fibers, which can indicate that
they are both softer and higher quality. However, a thread count between 200 and 450 should be comfortable for most, as it can be
difficult to distinguish a difference in texture for higher counts than that.
Another crucial factor to look at is the material. There is a range of options which offer varying levels of warmth, softness, or a crisp,
clean feeling. If you want something both soft and warm, flannel is the go-to for both of these characteristics. Flannel sheets are
denser, but with a bit of fluffiness to them, making them a great choice for winter or colder climates. Egyptian Cotton sheets are the
standard for smooth, light fabric. Made from a variation of cotton that has particularly long fibers, these can provide a luxurious feel and a cool, breezy
comfort that is perfect for summer. Cotton and organic cotton are a slightly more economical option that can offer much
the same feel as Egyptian cotton, but not quite as silky as they have a bit shorter fibers. If you are looking for a smooth, almost crisp feel to your
bedding, durable polyester or rayon sheets might be for you. Shop today to find the perfect sheet for your bed!
