If you’ve stayed in a luxury hotel or resort, you likely noticed that the sheets felt soft and opulent. That’s usually because high-end hotels ensure their linen has a high thread count – most hotels will provide sheets with a thread count ranging from 200 – 300. Thread count refers to the number of threads per inch and higher thread counts generally translate to a softer sheet. 

So aside from the feel of sheets, you might be wondering if there are any other advantages to a higher thread count. Well, yes – high quality sheets can be laundered often without falling apart. In fact the higher the thread count, the softer the sheets tend to become over time. Thread count also allows for more breathability which adds to the comfort they provide. 

Another factor in choosing sheets is fabric type. Cotton is your gold standard for sheets and specifically, Egyptian cotton is known to be softer and more durable than other types of cotton. The fibers used in the making of Egyptian cotton are longer and finer, making for a softer and stronger fabric. If you tend to run hot at night, choosing cotton or linen sheets will help you stay cooler, especially in the warm weather months.

The last thing to consider when choosing the best sheets for you is the weave type. A sateen weave produces a softer, more lustrous feel, while Percale is a durable, plainer weave and finally, a combed cotton weave makes for a strong but soft fabric.
