“Percale” refers to the type of weave used to produce a sheet, not the fabric. However, percale sheets are most commonly available in 100% cotton or 50/50 cotton/poly blends. Percale sheets have a smooth, flat, and tight weave, and a matte appearance. Though they have a tight weave to resist pilling, Percale sheets are still crisp and cool, so they’re great for hot sleepers avoiding night sweats.
Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch of fabric. While it’s commonly thought that higher thread count equals better quality, that’s not always the case—many brands use multi-ply yarns to inflate thread count and make their product appear more luxurious than it is.
Instead of looking for the highest thread count, look for sheets made with single-ply yarns (extra-long-staple yarns are ideal) that have a thread count between 200 to 800. In fact, many high-quality sheets found in hotel rooms typically have a thread count of 250 or lower.
There is no one “best” bed sheet since everybody has different preferences. Percale and Sateen refer to the weave of the sheet and not the fabric. Percale sheets are crisp and cool, so they’re the best for hot sleepers. Sateen sheets are silky and soft, so they’re better for sleepers looking for a luxurious sleep experience.
Egyptian cotton and linen are commonly used fabrics in sheets. Egyptian cotton is often thought of as being the “best of the best” in terms of sheet materials as they’re high-quality and long-lasting, whereas linen is more durable and a hypoallergenic option for sleepers with sensitivities. Linen is a bit thicker than cotton though, so choose cotton if you prefer a more lightweight sheet.
Hotel sheets are often thought of as being the most luxurious; however, it’s not difficult to attain that same luxurious feeling from your bed at home. Hotels primarily use sheets made of 100% cotton or 100% polyester with Percale or Sateen weaves. Percale sheets are crisp and cool while Sateen sheets are more silky and soft.
You can pair any type of sheet with a memory foam mattress, but we recommend choosing more breathable sheets with these beds. A common complaint with memory foam is heat retention—many brands have modified their memory foam beds to improve airflow, but if your sheets aren’t breathable, you’ll likely overheat despite these modifications.
100% cotton Percale sheets are a good way to go when looking for sheets to pair with a memory foam mattress.
Deep-pocketed sheets are necessary for taller, thicker mattresses. Mattresses below 12 inches tall are likely compatible with any sheet set, but once you start considering beds that are 13, 14, and 15 inches tall, you’ll also want to consider deep-pocketed sheets to go with them. The deeper pockets in these sheets allow the fitted sheet to fit securely around thicker mattresses, so you’re not stuck regularly pulling your fitted sheet back down over the bed.
To determine whether or not you need deep-pocketed sheets, measure the height of your mattress. Also, don’t forget to read the product description of the deep-pocketed sheets you’re considering—just because they’re deep-pocketed doesn’t mean they’ll fit every mattress. Some deep-pocketed sheets will fit beds up to 18 inches tall while others will fit mattresses 20+ inches thick.
The only way to tell whether or not you have pocketed sheets is to measure them (or check their label). Some brands will put it clearly on their product’s packaging while others won’t mention it either way. However, if the edge seams of your sheets are at least 18 to 20 inches long, they’re likely deep-pocketed.
Mattresses on adjustable beds do not necessarily need “special” sheets, but you may want to choose deep-pocketed sheets for mattresses on these bases so you can feel confident your sheets provide enough slack to adjust with the bed. Sheets that don’t fit properly may ride up the sides of the mattress, leaving you constantly readjusting them. Also, when looking for sheets to go with your adjustable bed, remember that the sheets only need to fit the mattress and the bed frame itself isn’t as big of a factor.
