Understand Thread Count

Thread count refers to the number of threads woven into one square inch of fabric. While a higher thread count can indicate softer sheets, it’s not the only factor to consider. The quality of the fibers and the weave are equally, if not more important.

Common Thread Counts:

Microfiber: 140 to 180 thread count

Cotton: 200 to 400 thread count

Bamboo: 250 to 400 thread count 

Determine Your Sleeping Needs

Your personal sleeping preferences play a crucial role in choosing the right sheets. Consider the following:

Are you a hot sleeper?  If you get too hot at night, opt for breathable materials like bamboo or cotton to keep you cool. Our DreamChill Collection offers even the warmest of sleepers to sleep cooler all night long. 

Do you prefer just a little coolness?: Choose our Bamboo Stretch-Knit or our 100% Organic Cotton, which offers the perfect balance of breathability and coolness with its natural, organic cotton fibers.
