Four Considerations When Selecting Sheets


Make the most out of your time in bed. The right sheets can freshen up the look of your bedroom and help you sleep better.

Four considerations when buying sheets: fabric, weave, thread count, and size & fit

What to look for:

  1. Fabric.
    • Cotton is by far the most popular, and we prefer Egyptian cotton from Italy or Portugal of course.
    • Bamboo, environmentally friendly, is a soft, breathable fiber made from renewable bamboo grass.
  2. Weave.
    • Percale (think hot summer nights) is a closely woven plain weave resulting in a wonderful feel.
    • Sateen (perfect for cold winter nights) is made with more yarn on the surface and has a more lustrous hand.
    • Flannel is a brushed cotton with a napped finish and a cozy, fuzzy feel.
    • There is also silk, satin and linen weaves.
  3. Thread count. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet; however thread count is one indicator of the softness. Thread count is determined by the number of threads lengthwise (called the warp) and widthwise (called the weft) in a 1-inch square of fabric. Our sheets range from 200 - 600 tread count.
  4. Size and fit. Sheets come in twin, extra-long twin, full, queen, king and California king sizes. With new construction methods, i.e. pillowtops, Eurotops, etc., mattresses are getting deeper. Measure your mattress depth and check package labels. It is important that a sheet provides a smooth surface, a nice, neat appearance.

  • Bamboo is a far superior fiber to cotton, especially when it comes to bed sheets. Bamboo has a smoother staple length therefore providing a silky, satiny feel, without the slipperiness. It is gentle on the skin, breathable and super light weight. You can’t go past it for the ultimate bedding fabric.

  • Here are the two points that I always take care when I do purchase Bamboo Sheets!

    1. Some fitted sheets simply ripped or came apart at the seams in our strength tests, and a number of could tear from just a heavy cat’s claws.
    2. Other sets had fitted sheets that popped off the corners of mattresses they claimed to fit or flat sheets that fell short on the sides of the bed.

  • Bamboo Sheet sets brings you closer to environment and provides implausible comfort. The key benefits to using organic bedding are that it is softer than cotton. If you have sensitive skin that needs extraordinary care, having soft and silky sheets can make all the variation. Another benefit to using organic bamboo bedding is that it is naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic.
