Common Questions About Sheets

This article provides answers to common questions about sheets. The questions discussed here are:

  • What are the softest sheets?
  • What materials are sheets made from?
  • What are the different types of threads sheets are made from?

I hope you find this information useful when making choices about sheets.

What are the softest sheets?Higher thread counts lead to the softest bed sheets. A higher the thread count produces softer sheets. The thread count is a measurement of the crisscrossing of threads in a square inch of material. The fiber can also help with softness. Brushed cotton, as well as, Egyptian cotton sheets are made of very soft fibers. Bamboo sheets are made from natural bamboo fiber that is spun into a soft yarn and woven, creating a silky twill fabric for your bed.

Try to find at least 500 thread count sheets to begin with. Washing these high thread count sheets only makes them softer in time. They are durable, too.. Once you sleep in a bed with high thread count sheets, you will be spoiled for life.

What materials are sheets made from?

The majority of sheets are made from a combination of cotton and polyester, usually 100% cotton or a 50/50 split. Recently sheets have made been from bamboo fiber. Microfiber sheets are also available.

Cotton breathes better than polyester and is more comfortable to sleep on during warmer weather. A cotton and polyester combination gives sheets better strength and durability, and is less prone to wrinkles.

Bamboo sheets are one of the softest fabrics available today. They are softer than cotton and incredibly silky soft to the touch. Bamboo sheets are also hypoallergenic, antibacterial and much more eco-friendly as they are 100% biodegradable. Most people who have slept on bamboo sheets are convinced that they will never sleep on anything else.

Microfiber specifically refers to any synthetic fiber that is much finer than a human hair. Because of the size of this fiber, many can be woven closely together to create a very tight, dense fabric. This density allows for more resistance to wear and staining. Because synthetic fibers are typically not as porous as natural fibers, further resistance to damage from dirt and spills is an added characteristic.

What are the different types of threads sheets are made from?

Cotton sheets are made with several different types of threads:

  • Egyptian
  • Sateen
  • Supima and Pima
  • Percale

Egyptian cotton is by far the best cotton in the world. This luxurious cotton grows alongside the Nile River. It has superior durability, luster, and silky feel due to its extra long fiber staple. The strength of the fiber creates fabrics that are more solid and more stress resistant. Egyptian cotton has the ability to absorb liquids which gives fabrics made of it deeper, brighter and more resistant colors. Its softness increases with each washing. Sheets made of Egyptian Cotton are softer, finer and last longer than any sheets in the world. Thread counts range from 200 to 1300.

Sateen is a weave construction that has more yarn surface on the face of the cloth than other basic weaves giving the sheet a softer feel to the hand and a more lustrous look. Thread counts range from 200 to 600.

Supima or Pima is high quality cotton whose long fiber staple is very much like Egyptian Cotton. Pima is grown in the southwestern part of the United States rather than along the Nile River. The soft touch of Supima and Pima make them very desirable choice for sheets. Expect to find thread counts to range from 200 to 1000.

Percale is a smooth flat closely woven and combed plain-weaved fabric that comes in 100% cotton or 50/50 cotton/polyester blends. Percale is noticeably tighter than the standard type of weave used for sheets. It has medium weight, is firm and smooth with no gloss, and warps and washes very well. You can expect thread counts to range from 180 to 250.
