Understand first what qualities you value.
December 30, 2017
Years and years ago, I had a sheet set that I didn't appreciate at the time. The kind of purchase you buy in your youth when money is no real issue but relegate to the back of the linen closet when you color preferences change. I rediscovered that set recently (no longer usable as we upgraded to a larger bed) and I realized...those sheets never pilled, never wore, never frayed. And here I am now with "soft" sheets, navigating and avoiding holes each night.
Figuring repurchasing quality sheets would be pricey, I've put it off for months. Meanwhile, I'd been researching what is was about those original sheets that I liked so much. The tags had been long worn...no clue brand, material, or weave.
What I'd determined was I liked their crispness, their weight, and their overall thickness. And what I needed to find would be long staple cotton.
I discovered these sheets in particular on Amazon and the price was far less than I was expecting to pay.
Some say itchy - I say crisp.
Some say wrinkly - I say...duh. 100% cotton
Some say lower thread count - I mention quality of thread used
I'll update should I discover deteriation with use, but so far...these are PRECISELY what I'd been looking for.
Update: nearly 1 year late, there has been no noticible wear. They are softer now, but still look great with no pilling for fraying. These were precisely the sheets I had hoped for.
