One can save a bundle by buying wholesale luxury sheets in bulk online. The following factors should be considered carefully when shopping around for the best sheets available.
Size and Fit
Whether fitted or flat, a sheet that's too big or too small for a bed isn't going to provide a good experience. Relying on standard sizes like double and queen isn't always wise. It's best to measure the length, width and depth of a mattress to be sure.
Quality of the Material
There are essentially two materials used in luxury sheets: high-end cotton and microfiber. Cotton comes in a variety of types such as Egyptian, Pima, and Standard. Microfiber sheets are composed of polyester. The best luxury sheets are a blend of cotton and microfiber material.
Type of Weave
Another essential consideration to mull over when buying luxury sheets is the specific weave that they employ. Common weaves include percale, sateen and combed the cotton. A sateen weave usually results in an extremely soft sheet that's more prone to tearing. Percale sheets can be nearly as soft but far more resilient.
While many sheet manufacturers use high thread counts as a selling point, it's not always the most important factor. Even sheets with a thread count in the 100 to 200 range can be incredibly soft and luxurious if they boast a quality percale weave and a cotton/microfiber blend.
Finally, there's the matter of finish. Many sheets are treated with chemicals such as chlorine or silicon before being shipped out. These treatments typically affect sheen, prevent shrinking or reduce wrinkles. People with specific allergies or sensitive skin may want to opt for untreated, all-natural sheets.
