BETWEEN THE SHEETS
The Right Choices Make Tuck-in Time Your Favorite Time
Your best rest starts with what makes our sheets stand out. There’s a reason 100% cotton is the go-to standard for a good night’s sleep: It’s comfortable. Cool in the summer. Warm in the winter. Breathable, all-natural fibers. Easy to wash (pro tip: have a back-up set for laundry day!), easy to care for and available in different weaves and thread counts, cotton can be smooth, crisp, soft and luxurious. Go for a cool, invigorating sleep experience with Percale sheets that deliver a little snap and a lot of smooth elegance.
If you’re more the cradle me gently type, the combed threads of Sateen sheets are supple, soft and snooze-button worthy. Proving even Mother Nature can use a little improvement, weaving just the right touch of synthetic polyester with premium cotton threads creates a softness that gets unbelievably softer with each wash. (Just kidding: You can believe it.) Blend kids, pets and everyday life with high-quality blends that release stains without sacrificing sensuous luxury.
Insomniacs count a lot of things – sheep, stars… maybe even the number of threads in a square inch of fabric. But you can find that answer without doing the work yourself as bedding usually lists its thread count. So what? For starters, bigger isn’t always better. A higher thread count – 300-500 – translates to a higher-quality sheet, but after that, too many threads packed in there can make your bedding denser, heavier and not as breathable. And remember, the type of thread and weave may matter even more. With the right sheets, your days of counting are numbered.
Yes, there comes a time when you’ll have to leave your bed just to wash it. We know you’re gonna’ want to climb right back in so go for sheets that enjoy a tumble in the washer and dryer instead of packing for a trip to the dry cleaners. Pick up a few extra pillowcases for a quick refresh in between laundry days.
