Slipping into bed to luxuriate on exquisitely soft sheets can help you slip comfortably into sleep. There is more to consider than just thread count when deciding where to get your next set of cotton sheets.
Sferra (Lino di Lusso) and Soft Linens stress that yarn quality, the construction and how the sheets are finished contribute just as much to softness as high thread counts do.
Higher-end department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Sak's carry sheets from designers such as Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren that are made with higher thread counts.
Crate and Barrel; Bed, Bath and Beyond; and Pottery Barn carry their own brands of sheets that focus on quality for a smoother feel to the sheets.
Walmart and K-Mart
For the fiscally conscious, lower thread count sheets can be found at these stores. You can still get quite good quality sheets that will fit your budget and style.
Sleeping Outside the Box
With a feel-like-cashmere softness and an eco-friendly footprint, sheets of bamboo are fast becoming the choice for those who want to live green without sacrificing luxury.
