    Bed Sheets

    Any of you have good knowledge of good bed sheets? Searching the internet for months, it's hard to find any good information about whats good and whats BS. There are so many misrepresented products, it's hard to judge whats good and whats trash. I am starting to think I gotta pay $1000 for sheets in order to get something good. Any knowledgeable recommendations?

    All I can offer you is my wife likes to see and touch and she's been getting flannel sheets lately. They seem to wear out more often but she buys them anyway.

    In our search for nice sheets, we found Bloomingdale's is a good source for high thread count cotton. If you like really good flannel sheets buy the 5oz flannels from Land's End.

    Flannel sheets all the way here in Utah during winter. Nothing beats them. Summer time is whatever the wife thinks is cute.

    Several people here are raving about bamboo sheets, but those may be more for living on a tropical island... It may be worth looking at overstock.com for sheets, I also got a real nice down comforter for a great price from them some years ago. Not that I really need it right now...

    1.)The unit of measurement is thread count per square inch. Some lesser manufacturers will mislead with thread count per 10 square cm

    2.Egyptian cotton is suppose to be more long lasting and longer fiber.

    3) The Italians finishing is far superior. I find that those made in India is inferior. A US manufacturer Sferra Brothers ( migrant form Italy) is excellent.

    4) I have tried the 1,000 thread count and there is no turning back. As we spend 8 hours at least sleeping on it.. I think that it is worth it. THE Sferra Brothers 300 , 406 or 600+ Thread count is very acceptable

    5) Bamboo fiber is soft and nice too. However difficult to find plain white sheets .

    6) Finally.. my favorite is linen. But it is a chore to maintain and ironing it is troublesome..as it crumples easily. IT is cool to touch even when exposed to halogen lights. It is much appreciated in the tropics. I have draped over my furniture as I like the feel of natural fiber..

    Go to Tuesday Morning. You can pick up 600+ count sheets cheap. I don't know how many sets we have, but none of them are less than 600 count.

    go to bed bath and beyond and check out the beechwood sheets... I've tried quite a few and I always go back to those... not expensive at all
