According to HGTV,
Sheets made of microfiber-fabric composed of extremely fine fibers of polyester-are affordable and soft, and they resist pilling more than traditional polyester fabric does. However, polyester is less breathable than cotton and is probably not the best choice for those with sensitive skin.
Factors to determine sheet QualityWe want the perfect sheets for our bedroom; as well as, for our guest bedroom. Of course we want our company cozy as they sleep the night away. Well, we are always hearing about the thread count of quality sheets, which can range from 200 to 800 counts.
According to The Spruce,
Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch on a piece of fabric — or in this case, a bed sheet. Usually, if sheets have higher thread count, they’ll feel softer, more luxurious and wear more evenly. High-quality bed sheets will even get softer and more comfortable with each wash.There are so many diverse Sheet Sets with various thread counts to choose from for your particular sleeping and lounging needs. There are a variety of factors that determine the feel and quality of the sheets you choose to purchase for your family.
|Factors that determine the feel and quality of the sheets|
Some factors are:
- How the fabric is woven
- The thread count
- The fiber from which it is produce - Cotton is the most common fiber for bed sheets.
The three main varieties of cotton sheets are:
- American Upland
According to Martha Srewart,
American Upland is the most widely used cotton and can be short- to long-staple ("staple" refers to the length of the individual fibers). If a label only reads "100 percent cotton," it is likely to be American Upland. Pima is a fine, long-staple cotton that yields a very soft weave. The word "Supima" often appears on the labels of Pima sheets as a trademark of the Supima Association, which promotes Pima cotton. Egyptian cotton is the finest, longest-staple of all. Grown in the Nile River Valley, Egyptian cotton produces an extremely soft and supple weave.
