What Are the Best Thread Count Sheets to Buy
Picture this: You’ve just had your DreamCloud luxury mattress delivered right to your door. It’s perfect, they even let you pick the room you want it to keep it in. It’s the perfect mix of six different kinds of foam, state of the art springs, and a topper made of cashmere. You look in your laundry for your sheets and are… less than impressed.
You wouldn’t buy a brand new car and then skimp on the wax, so why do that in something that you sleep on every night? And one of the best parts of owning a DreamCloud mattress is that it’s so affordable that you’re going to have left over cash for quality sheets. It’s not just a luxury, great sheets are a hygienic and smart way to improve your sleep hygiene. We took a look at some of the best sheets to pair with your new mattress so that you can truly have rest that feels like you’re lying on the back of angels’ wings.
Higher Thread Count Doesn’t Always Mean Better Quality
The one thing that everyone seems to know about sheets is that the higher the thread count, the better quality of the mattress — even comedian Aziz Ansari has a bit about it. This is true, within reason, but basically anything with a thread count of over 400 isn’t necessarily going to feel better. That’s not just us, saying that, Consumer Reports put out an article this year saying the exact same thing. What’s more important is the type of cotton that you’re buying. Look for Egyptian, Pima, or Supima, those are all long fibered blends that will guarantee the softest feeling when you’re tucking yourself in at night — and at a slightly lower price point than typical “luxury” sheets, you’ll be able to sleep well knowing that you got a great deal.

Does Thread Count Matter and Price Matter?
It’s easy to get fooled when you go into a bedding store by the high prices. Higher prices automatically mean a better product, right? Wrong. The internet has become many things, but perhaps best of all it’s become a great equilizer when it comes to price points on food, video games, and yes bedding. Sometimes though, a higher price point is going to get you better quality because of the craftsmanship that goes into it. The company Brooklinen has been making high quality sheets for a few years now, and while their pricing is a bit higher than L.L. Bean or J.C. Penny, the difference is definitely noticeable. There 480 thread count is highlighted by a superior craftsmanship that goes into every order.
