Materials define your comfort levels

The single most important factor that determines the quality of your bedding is the quality of material that it is made of. It is by now an universally agreed fact that bedding made out of Egyptian cotton and Pima cotton are the best in terms of comfort. Of course, if you cannot afford the very best, then you can look at other varieties of cotton.

Check for the thread count on the bedding

A very simple and basic indicator of the quality of bedding at an instant look is the thread count that is mentioned on it. Greater the thread count, greater will be the comfort offered by the fabric. Thread count is basically the amount of threads per square inch, or the density of the weave. In order to get more threads per inch, the threads have to be thinner. Thread counts for bed linen can range from as low as 80 for a basic fabric to as high as 400 for Egyptian cotton. Choose a fabric with a thread count of at least 100 and you can aim for more depending on your budget and taste.
