Jessica Zach shows some fabulous sheets that would make any bed cozy. From traditional sheets to luxury linens, Zach shares tips on thread count, care and what to look for before making a bedding purchase:
- The most popular and traditional fabric for sheets is cotton, but linen and silk are also popular and very luxurious.
- Thread count is important because it refers to how many threads there are per square inch of fabric (it can range from 200 to 1020). The higher the thread count, the softer the sheet will be. Cotton is actually the only fabric where this is a consideration.
- Egyptian cotton is considered to be the best cotton available because it has the longest fiber of any kind of cotton and it's the strongest.
