I need new sheets for my bed but I have no idea what is a good thread count. I don't need the best quality but do want soft sheets. Suggestions please :-)

We bought a new mattress last year, and I convinced DH that we HAD to get new sheets to have the "whole" experience.
So we got 1000 thread count, Egyptian cotton ones,and oh my gosh, they are divine! Just like hopping into a hotel bed every night.
I have bought some other nice soft ones for one of my DD's from target. They were not particularly high thread count, but they are really soft. I think Target have a home sale on at the moment...

I have absolutely no idea about thread counts, but a few years ago at target I bought a sheet called a tshirt sheet and it's the softest most comfortable sheet i've ever felt. It's made out of tshirt material so you can just imagine how devinely soft it is.

I'm a bit of a sheet snob but I won't buy anything less than 800, preferably 1000+. I need to find some for my DS actually, I'll feel bad if we're sleeping on good sheets and he isn't!
I also second Rodeobull - t-shirt or jersey is also lovely, unfortunately I can only find them in fitted sheets only and I like a top sheet! Target are selling jersey fitted sheets and doona covers in sets at the moment.

I usually buy between 200-250 thread count and I think they're excellent. They don't pill, they're soft and comfortable and affordable! I bought some sheets for the girls from bed bath n table a couple of weeks ago for half price and they feel beautiful

Love our 1000 thread. Buy 2 sets and they'll last you years and feel luxurious.

We have recently been given 1000 count sheets as a gift and they definitely feel better quality but I also find them quite stiff! I wouldn't describe them as soft. I do like them though.
Tshirt/jersey sheets sound great, I'm going to look for them!

With target, they are a bit dodgy with how they report their thread count - they do it on a 10cm2 when the standard is on a 1inch2 so their 1000tc is the equivalent of another brands 250tc.
The best I have had is 300 and they were lovely.

1000 Egyptian cotton here too. Can't sleep on less.
Dd1 has some 350 tc sheets and they are ok, I bought cheaper 180tc ones and they are now used as drop sheets.

Just something to think about..... A thread count may read 1000 BUT if the quality of the thread is rubbish then the sheet will be too. Sometime, depending on the brand a 300 count may be better than a 1000 count in a a dodgy brand.
