    Default Hotel Bed Linen

    Can anyone tell me where I could get the lovely thick sheets like you get at fancy hotels? What brand should I be looking for? They always feel sooo lovely!
    Thanks!

    I'd be looking for 1000 thread count sheets, I think you can get them anywhere that sells linen but they are a lot more expensive because you are paying for better quality.

    Sheridan I think might be the best. Sometimes some manufacturers truck you by thinning out the thread, so your 1000 count sheets are acutely 500 thread count. If you know what I mean

    Yes, get a good brand. I got sucked in with the "Egyptian cotton 1000 thread count" sheets when target had their last sale, and they have bobbled badly.

    I think the best sheets I've ever had are Sheridan. Bed shed also sell decent ones. We got some when we bought our new bed, and I think they were 500 count, but they are fairly thick, soft and are wearing well.

    I agree, it's not just about thread count, the quality of the cotton is more important. I have a Sheridan set that I got for 50% off in the Myer sale ages ago that just get softer every time I wash them, and just yesterday we got another set from Bed Bath and Table that are 1200 thread count Egyptian cotton - super thick, soft and reduced from $470 down to $180! I'd recommend popping in and asking their staff, they were super helpful yesterday in explaining the differences between the ones I was looking at and how they'd wash up etc.

    And the higher the thread count, the warmer they will be. So, if you're hot in bed (lol), you might want to aim for 500 with super nice cotton rather than 1000+

    so true. I bought 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton when I lived in a much hotter climate. I found it quite heavy and sweaty and found it almost felt oily after a while. like it didn't breathe as nicely as lighter, less dense thread counts.

    250 these days is good enough for me lol
