Soft, beautiful bed linens are a luxury that is definitely worth the cost. High-quality sheets last for an extremely long time and will give you significantly more use than many of your favorite clothing items. I always counsel my clients to indulge in the best sheets they can afford. You deserve it. There are a lot of companies out there making beautiful high-quality and stylish bedding.
Many people judge (and boast about) a sheet based solely on its thread count, however there are other factors bedroom linen to be considered. I will break it down so that you only need to look at three factors: be looking for:
Thread Count: This is how many threads per square inch. The more the better however it actually tops out at 500. Companies that claim higher thread counts are using processes with smaller threads, so they can claim the higher thread count for their promotional. I suggest 200 or higher.
Materials The King is Cotton! Avoid sheets made of polyester. Blended fabrics cannot transpire or absorb moisture, which is why they’re not as comfy. They won’t be as soft and will tear. Egyptian cotton will be best option available.
Finish The fabric is processed or finished in various ways that affect the feel. The processes can be complicated however, you only need experience it to find out what you prefer.
I am also ecstatic to see that many of our main companies are offering organic bed linens. Cotton is one of our most pesticide-infested crops. Therefore, even though organic sheets cost more, they’re worth the cost. Particularly if someone within your family has allergies or chemical sensitivities.
Always clean your sheets prior to when you apply them for the very first time!
