I Sheet You Not

Last night my back was bothering me quite a bit, letting me know it was time for me to stretch it out. The fact that it was 11 PM may have been a factor in that. I finally locked down and went to bed, and as I laid down I gave a sigh of contentment. I can pretty much sleep anywhere, as long as my lower back has some support, like from a small pillow, if need be. No, what made me sigh in contentment were my 600 count sateen sheets.


Trust me when I say, there is nothing quite like the feel of high count sheets. (Ok, maybe there is, but this is a family friendly blog, so keep it to yourself!) A couple of weeks ago, I had put a set of sheets on my bed that I had purchased back in 2000 or so. I went to bed that night, and felt like sandpaper was scratching my skin. I got up, took them off, and put a high count sheet set on my bed, consigning that other set to the donation pile. From now on, nothing less than 450 count will ever grace the mattresses in this house.

Some people may think that’s a bit high maintenance, but trust me: it’s like sleeping on a cloud. Besides, I’m totally worth it! 😉

    Aggie, you are totally worth it.

  • Nomstress

    I happen to totally agree. There is a HUGE difference! Interestingly, I heard that bamboo sheets are even softer…but WAY out of my price range for now. 😛

    You deserve a heavenly pillow upon which to rest your aching bones at the end of the day!

    High threadcount sheets are one of the simple but expensive pleasures in life. Nothing sucks more than flaying skin off of yourself by sliding across cheap sheets with something like a *4* threadcount.

    Do yourself and your sig-other a favor and go blow some money on high threadcount sheets like Aggie did.

      I agree, though I never even knew what a high threadcount sheet was before I got married. I’m sure the sheets they issued me in the Army were not high count, and after I got out, I don’t think I ever spent more than ten or fifteen dollars on sheets.

      My wife introduced me to the world of luxury linen, and now I’m a wuss. 😀

    Ok- you convinced me. Redbeard shall get some for Christmas!

    What’s a sheet?

    The higher quality stuff lasts a lot longer too, so in the long run you’re really saving money.

    Heartily agree. I don’t have 600 TC sheets but I have 400 TC sateen. Love them! World of difference.

    And if you shaved your legs right before crawling between freshly laundered sheets, it is sheer heaven…

    The Juju Woman and I share a Sleigh Bed that weighs about a million pounds. Added a feather bed, 600 count sheets, and home sewn quilts. A good bed is like a good woman: you never want to leave it.

    The “bed” is important, so is a comfortable nights sleep. If you don’t believe me, just ask Stretch. I admit, I sleep with a dog.

    High count cotton sheets are well worth it. A feather mattress, pillows, and comforter, are to die for! Sinking into such luxury is heaven on earth, and you will not want to get out of bed. Haven’t had the pleasure since ’75, and I still can’t forget it!

    high dollar count mattress, high thread count sheets, tempur-pedic pillas (also high dollar count). i’ve had girls come back to see me just cause the bed.
