Sheet Education

Yesterday, I went blindly into the unknown world of bedding.  I was with a client who is building a bed and breakfast resort. In this department, I was as stumped as she was. Standing in the big box department store staring at a wall of dozens of possibilities... 2, 3, 400, 1000 thread count, cotton, silk, linen, bamboo, hemp, T-shirt, fleece, Italian, Egyptian, Yikes!  The customer service consultant did her best to help answer our questions, but honestly it sounded more like she was guessing than assuring. So, as ever, when I just don't know, I defer to the experts.  In this case I went to the Guru's of the bedding world for beducation. Linda and Kandice of OLIVE AND ELLE.
My take away after a long conversation with Kandice: thread count does not matter.  1000 thread count sounds better but does not make for a softer or more durable sheet. 
To simplify the influx of information, the BEST SHEETS to purchase... Italian or Egyptian  made, 200-400 thread count.  Why you ask? well, you'll either have to take my word for it or Pop into Olive and Elle and ask Linda or Kandice for the tutorial.
