I will readily admit that I am fairly picky about my bed sheets. I like them to be clean, tight-fitting and straight. I don’t get a ton of sleep and when I do finally get to lie in my bed (oh Heaven!!) I want the conditions to be ideal. That’s not too much to ask, is it?!
So I’ve had two nights to sleep on my new t-shirt knit sheets that my husband bought me for Christmas. This is my extremely subjective list of pros and cons:
- Unbelievable softness
I literally feel like I am lying on a bed of…well, t-shirts. Extra comfy t-shirts of the highest quality. They feel so smooth and luxurious against the skin.
These sheets definitely do not have that stark cold feeling when you slide underneath them as some other sheets do. They also maintain your body heat so if you have to get out of bed for any reason they are fairly warm when you return to bed. If you are a person that struggles with a hot pillow, these might not be the sheets for you.
- The straightness factor
These sheets have a lot of give to them and the readily stretch. So it is a little more difficult to straighten the sheets when making the bed.
- Harder to fold
Due again to the stretchy quality of this fabric, these sheets are a little harder to fold than other types of bed sheets. Material that is stiff is much easier to fold and this material is far from stiff.
Based on my bed sheet preferences, I would give these sheets a 7 out of 10 on a 1-10 scale. I’m not sure how they will work in the summer when the house is already a little hotter than usual. Will they make us even more hot since they tend to hold heat? I’m still in love with how cottony soft they feel so the heat question may become moot.
From a laundry standpoint, they are to be laundered just like any other standard cotton sheets. So thankfully there is no special maintenance. (And I wash all sheets on hot if you are curious.)
What kind of sheets are your favorites? T-shirt knit sheets? Percale? Flannel?
