Shopping for any type of bed sheets can be a tricky matter and gives the buyer a lot of things to consider when deciding matters most. On any list you’ll see something that relates to a need for soft sheets. Shopping for soft sheets can sometimes be pricey so it’s important to set a budget and know exactly what you are looking for before you begin your search.
Can’t Go Wrong With Cotton
The softest material in any sheet is cotton so most of the softest sheets on the market are made up of 100% cotton. While cotton sheets aren’t always soft right out of the package they improve with each wash cycle. Within just a few months of these cycles you will have luxuriously soft bedding with a cool feeling during the hot summer nights and warm feeling during those cool autumn evenings.
If your budget doesn’t allow for a sheet set with 100% cotton you could always look into other options such as satin, bamboo, brushed linen, jersey, and others that are less known. The comparison of these other options can sometimes be stressful but if you’re looking for the softest to cotton feel you should go with satin.
The Benefits of Satin
Satin always provides a slick feel, with a high end appearance, and a cheaper price range than cotton sheets. The only downside to satin sheets is the thread count, which runs around 230 versus cotton’s 400 thread count. Due to this low count the sheets should always be pre-washed in order to prevent any black dye transfer. This means maintenance can sometimes be more of a struggle than the cotton sheets.
Treating your guests and children to the same soft sheet could benefit everyone within the home. Just keep in mind that although sheet shopping can be stressful you’ll never go wrong with any high thread count, cotton or satin sheet for any bed in the house.
