Sleep tight with these soft and silky bed sheets

For a cloud-like slumber you deserve.

With so much division in the world, there’s one thing we can collectively agree on – sleep is awesome. And it’s made even better when accompanied by a comfortable bed.

Soft and silky sheets are universally loved. And for a good reason…who doesn’t want to feel as though they’re sleeping on a cloud?

There’s never been a better time to treat yourself, or a loved one, to some fancy new sheets that will transform a light doze into a deep and blissful slumber.

What is the softest sheet in Australia? 

Well that is a good question, and it comes down to preference mostly. But here are some of the things to look out for if you’re on the hunt for the softest of sheets:

  • Thread count – The thread count of a sheet set is essentially how many horizontal and vertical threads there are per square inch. These can range from 200, all the way to 800. Now, don’t assume the higher the thread count the better the sheets – we recommend looking for sheets between 200 and 400 for optimal softness. 
  • Material – There are many materials to choose from if you’re wanting an extra soft set of sheets for your bedroom. The top picks to look for include cotton, bamboo, flannel, silk or even eucalyptus. However the MVP of soft sheets is Egyptian cotton. 
  • Weave type – The weave is the technique in which your sheets are made, and typically sateen sheets are the ones to look out for. 

We’ve rounded up some our favourites below.
