The basics for getting a good night’s rest begin with sleeping in a cool, darkened environment that’s conducive to rest and relaxation on a mattress with the right support level for your body type and a pillow that’s compatible with your preferred sleeping position. Sleeping on the right sheets can also add to your comfort and improve the overall quality your of your sleep. Known since 1978 as Southern California’s best source for top quality brand-name mattresses, bedframes and bedroom accessories at prices that can’t be beat, Sit ‘n Sleep also carries a full selection of sheets and pillowcases.
Bed Sheet Thread Counts and Fabrics
When shopping for sheets either online or at a retail outlet, it’s important to have a basic understanding of thread count, which is the number of vertical and horizontal threads per square inch of fabric. Most better quality bed sheets have a thread count between 200 and 800. Although it’s commonly believed that the higher the thread count, the more soft and comfortable the sheets will be, but that’s not necessarily always the case. It’s true that sheets with higher thread counts tend to wear better and continue to soften over time, but since the weave is tight, fabrics with thread counts over 400 don’t allow the sheets to breathe. These sheets also tend to trap body heat and moisture, which can be uncomfortable, and especially so on hot summer nights. Most people prefer to sleep on sheets with thread counts between 200 and 400 that feel soft and smooth to the touch and are breathable.
Choosing sheets made from the right material is also important. People who are always uncomfortably warm or tend to perspire at night should sleep on natural materials such as cotton, linen or bamboo, all of which are breathable fabrics that help wick away perspiration. Sheets made from synthetic rather than natural fibers are less breathable and hold in moisture and heat.
Sit ‘n Sleep stocks a great selection of premium quality sheets and pillowcases in various colors that fit mattresses ranging in size from twin to California King and everything in between. Here are some of our top sellers:
