The idea that higher thread count means better sheets is a myth that’s led many bedding manufacturers to creative, even deceptive, thread counting. In reality, good sheets start with quality fibers that are made into the best fabrics and carefully finished to look and feel great.
The best place to start when choosing sheets is to think about how you want them to feel against your skin when you climb into bed. Some people prefer light, crisp sheets, while others prefer a soft, smooth sensation. The fabric and weave – not the thread count – create the comfort and feel you love.
