    I like ours from Bed Bath and Beyond. They’re Wamsutta, I think.

    I am a sheet snob! I pay more for sheets than shoes, Darling Husband doesn’t quite get it, but I spend so much time sleeping I think it is totally worth it.  The issue we have is finding sheets that are deep enough for my pillow top and memory foam topper. (Yes, I am slightly obsessed)  I have bought and been disappointed with many sheets.  The ones i like the best lately are from….Sams Club! I was shocked.  Its the Christy brand. They are fantastic, they aren’t filmy or rough, and they have an extra panel at the head and the foot to accomodate my extra toppers.  The only complaint I have is with Darling Husband, he bicycles in his sleep or something and I notice wear in the sheets where he is rubbing the fabric down.  So i just rotate the spot after each wash.  our Macys sheets from our registry only lasted two washes with DH’s rubbing them before we got a hole.  its bizarre, i’ve never heard of anyone doing that before I met him!

    Ours our Tencel.  Some of my old ikea sheets were actually causing a flareup of a medical condition.  I bought some cheap jersey ones as Walmart and Superstore.  I love our Tencel ones though!  They feel cool, but aren’t crisp.  I don’t like the feel of crisp, as I also associate that with being rough, like it’s starched.

    I hate sheets that arent 100% cotton so we only buy 100% cotton sheets. the not-100% cotton ones feel nice in the store but then you get all sweaty in them and they start to smell (especially since Darling Husband sweats hard when he sleeps).  We get ours from TJ maxx and Marshalls and LOVE our Tahari sheets. such pretty colors and they get softer the more we wash them.  We also have Tommy Bahama, Calvin Klein, (both from TJ) and Costco brand (surprisingly luxurious!)

    I’m extremely picky about sheets, they must have a very high thread count, and preferably Egyptian cotton.  I don’t mind paying a lot for great sheets.  🙂

    High thread count Egyptian Cotton is my favorite.

    We have 600 TTC for guests and 1,000 TTC sheets for us and I can most definitely tell a difference, the 1,000 TTC is like sleeping in a cloud.

    @cooperlove:  I haven’t noticed that with Tencel.  Have you tried it?

    @cooperlove:  That they smell more than cotton.

    Come to think of it I had a problem with things in our linen closet smelling musty.  The Tencel took on that smell less than that 100% cotton sheets.

    The type of cotton is important. Look for Egyptian cotton, pima, or supima (in that order), which are all high-quality long fibers. Your sheets may have been high thread count but made from a domestic short-fiber cotton. The type of weave can also be important: sateen vs. percale is partly just what you prefer, as one isn’t necessarily better than the other. Sateen has that smooth, soft feel with a slight sheen. Percale is matte and kind of crisp, but it’s stronger. Sounds like what you want is a percale weave.

    Here’s a good breakdown for what to look for: http://www.realsimple.com/home-organizing/decorating/bedroom/when-buying-sheets-10000000684301/index.html

    Not that I’ve been investing in great sheets lately. I used to have a “no dogs on the bed” policy, but Darling Husband gradually got his way. Now my sheets are always ripping!

    I’m a fan of 100% Egyptian cotton in a sateen weave for the summer, percale in the winter.
