How To Choose Sheets

    Finding the perfect set of sheets can be difficult, but we are here to help! Here are some tips to help you select the best option for you.

    Thread Count

    Thread count is the number of threads woven into a square inch of fabric. The higher the thread count, the smoother and softer the sheets will be. However, the type of fiber and weave also affects the quality of the sheet.

    Fiber

    Cotton sheets are breathable, cool, soft and wicks moisture away from your skin. There are all types of cottons, but long staple cotton makes a much softer sheet and the surface won’t pill and lint as much. Egyptian, Pima and Supima are different types of high quality long fibers. If you are allergic to dyes and chemicals, look for sheets that are made out of cotton fibers that are organically grown without pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. Cotton polyester blend sheets are durable and tend to wrinkle less compared to cotton sheets. Polyester sheets are wrinkle resistant, but are not as soft and breathable as cotton.

    Weave

    Weave affects the way a sheet looks, feels and its overall durability. Plain weaves, such as Percale, have an equal number of vertical and horizontal yarns woven together. Plain weave sheets are known for their longevity and crisp feel. Sateen weaves are woven with more vertical than horizontal yarns. The higher number of vertical threads gives the sheet ultra softness. Twill weaves are yarns that are woven two over and one under to create a diagonal line on one side of the fabric. These sheets tend to be soft and tend to hold their shape well. Jacquard and damask are weaves that have intricate patterns.
