When it comes to sleep, we take the whole experience very seriously. This means scouting out the best sheets to create a Zen and tranquil sleep-ready environment.

But how do we know what’s best with so many types of sheets, styles, materials and thread counts to choose from?

When choosing your bed linens, it really comes down to personal preference. There are innovative lightweight sustainable materials like bamboo or linens that are perfect for summer or silky soft satins for a royal slumber.

But cotton is perhaps the prevailing champ of sleep linens and for good reason.

They offer exceptional softness and comfort, along with excellent breathability and moisture absorption, ensuring a cosy and dry sleep. Their hypoallergenic nature, easy maintenance, and timeless elegance make them a versatile and eco-friendly option for a restful and luxurious sleep experience.

Cotton sheets have been the go to bed linens for decades. With their endless benefits and extreme versatility, it’s not hard to see why.

What thread count is best for sheets in Australia?

The best thread count for sheets in Australia depends on your personal preferences and budget. However, as a general rule of thumb, sheets with a thread count of 300 to 500 are usually just as good as higher thread count numbers.

Any difference in durability and softness is so small that it might not justify the price tag. Sheets with thread counts exceeding 500-800 are usually quite expensive.

Is it better to have 100% cotton sheets?

Both pure cotton sheets and cotton blends have their distinct advantages. Pure cotton sheets are favoured for being hypoallergenic, durable, and eco-friendly, with a natural look that adds an timeless touch to any bedroom.

On the flip side, cotton blends come with their own merits, such as reduced wrinkling, enhanced durability, and often a more budget-friendly price point.

While some appreciate the practicality of cotton blends, many are drawn to the unmatched softness and performance of 100 per cent cotton sheets, making them a popular choice for those seeking a truly cosy and luxurious sleep experience.

If you’re on the hunt for your new favourite sheets then read on, because below are some of our favourite cotton sets to level up your bedroom and have you sleeping soundly in no time.
