Products Tested by The Spruce
How We Tested
Our reviewers spent 112 hours testing one of our readers’ favorite high-thread-count sheet sets. To get the most thorough results, they put the sheets on their beds and slept on them every night for multiple weeks. We asked our testers to consider the most important features when using these high-thread-count sheets, including their weave, fiber, and durability. We've outlined the major points here so that you, too, know what to look for when shopping.
What to Look for in High Thread Count Sheets
Ply Before deciding which pair of high-thread-count sheets to buy, consider the ply of the material. Single-ply means that just single yarn fibers are woven together, while two-ply indicates that two yarn fibers are twisted together before being woven into a sheet. A higher ply doesn’t necessarily mean a softer, more luxurious sheet, though — two-ply fabric tends to have a looser, heavier weave and a shorter lifespan.
Weave High-thread-count sheets come in a variety of different weaves including sateen and percale. A sateen weave has a luxurious and soft-to-the-touch feel, while percale is crisper and especially ideal for people who get hot when they sleep.
Fiber You can find sheet sets made from many different fibers, including cotton, organic cotton, microfiber, bamboo, and more. Specialty cotton — like Pima and Supima — are worthwhile splurges for a high-thread-count sheet set. Microfiber is made from brushed polyester fibers and does a great job of imitating the smooth, soft finish of cotton at a more budget-friendly price.

What We Like
Very soft after two washes
Great overall quality
What We Don't Like
Not soft right out of package
Wrinkled after washing
“These sheets are better than nine out of 10 other sheet sets I've tried,” raved one of our testers. One reviewer thought that they struck the perfect balance of smooth and sturdy: “They’re still soft but really hold their shape and stay in place,” he noted. However, one tester observed that they “aren’t the softest” right out of the package and found that it took them two washes to feel comfortable. These sheets also came out of the wash a little wrinkled, according to one reviewer.
