My favorite set is a 600tc set I bought from JC Penny ages ago. They’ve held up well for about 6 years now.

Darling Husband and I love the Pure Beech sateen sheets from Bed, Bath & Beyond. They’re the only sheets we use.

We got 1,000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets from Bed, Bath and Beyond. They are amazing beyond belief. Bedding is one place where splurging is worth it.

I say anything with a thread count of at least 1000.  I can’t remember where ours are from..but they are amazing!

I have a bunch of different kinds… usually buy them at a Big Box Store like Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Outfitters (Canada), or HomeSense (sister company to HomeGoods in the USA)… or at Department Stores like The Bay, Sears etc.

I ALWAYS buy my Bed Linens when they are on sale… because otherwise they are quite pricey for good quality.  White Sales / Linen Sales happen several times a year, and things will go on sale for 50% to 75% OFF as a general rule.

My greatest criteria is that the sheet has a high thread count, is primarily cotton (or 100% cotton) and is a deep pocket sheet (cotton sheets in particular tend to shrink in hot water or a hot dryer) a sheet that has shrunk is difficult to put on a bed and pull over the mattress corners… so deep pockets help, even if you have a standard depth mattress.

My most recent sheet purchase was a set at Home Outfitters (division of The Bay)… they are Gluckstein Home Classics 700 Thread Count 100% Pima Cotton Sateen and soooo smooth and silky !!  (NOTE – Brian Gluckstein is a Canadian Interior Designer who also has a HUGE US reputation / following).  I bought them on sale, 50% OFF and I think we spent aprox $ 100 for 4 pieces (Fitted Sheet – Flat Sheet -and 2 Standard Pillowcases) in an Open Stock arrangement.

In the past I’ve also been happy with sheets made by Laura Ashley, Ralph Lauren, Nautica, and BB&B’s store brand Damask Sheets (the ones with the solid coloured stripes)

As a general note, you will not want to skimp on your bedding… as realistically you do spend 1/3 of your life there… and comfort is an important element to rest, and sleep is important to your overall health.  A comfy & cozy bed is a wonderful luxury, one that everyone should indulge in (pamper yourself and your Hubby).  Quality linens will last you a while if they are properly maintained, changed regularly, washed & dryed properly (read the laundry care instructions… and in particular do not wash them with anything else, especially NOT TOWELS… otherwise sheets will pill and become very scratchy & nasty).  Overall they should get more and more silky over time (think about how wonderful Hotel Sheets feel).  A good investment that should last you 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years.

Hope this helps,

@Mickey9998:  I have found some really nice percale sheets from The Vermont Country Store that I like.  Some of them are a bit pricey, but if you check the website every month or so, you can usually find a sale.  The flannel ones are warm, but I prefer the regular ones.  So far, they have not pilled for me, and they have a good grip on the mattress.  Cute designs, too. 🙂

Cariloha!!!!! We’ll NEVER EVER buy anything else ever again unless the company burns to the ground. Seriously. Everything else feels like fine sandpaper.
