How to Shop for Bedding:
Buying Bed Sheets for Your Home
Sheet fabric is an important feature when choosing sheets for your bed. From super-soft cotton sateen to crisp linen, the material your sheets are made from is so important.
In addition, the focus used to be on thread-count when talking about quality sheets. Today, however, some deceptive manufacturers use the term “ply” to artificially inflate the thread count of their sheets. Ply refers to the number of threads that are wound together in a single thread. Since most high-quality bed sheets are made with single ply, it is more important to look for higher thread count numbers in a single ply for the best quality.
If you are not sure exactly which set of sheets will work best for your home, you can see the different qualities, benefits, and even the shortcomings of several different sheet styles in this helpful bedding guide.
