The Science Behind The Perfect Bedsheet

The Science Behind The Perfect Bed Sheet

When it comes to bedding, the type of sheets you choose can greatly impact the quality of your sleep. The right sheets can keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night, while the wrong sheets can leave you feeling hot and sweaty.

Understanding the science behind bed sheets can help you choose the perfect set for your needs.


The material of your sheets can greatly affect their feel and breathability. One of the most popular choices is eucalyptus sheets. Not only are these sheets temperature regulating, which means that they’ll keep you warm in winters and cool in summers, they’re also moisture-wicking and highly hypoallergenic, keeping you away from all kinds of allergens and dust mites.

Tencel Cooling Sheets

Bamboo sheets are another popular choice, owing to their insane softness and durability. Made from a sateen weave, which gives these sheets a heavier and yet, a smoother feel.

Thread Count

Thread count refers to the number of threads woven into one square inch of the fabric. High thread count sheets are often considered luxurious, but this is not always the case. In reality, a high thread count does not necessarily mean a higher quality sheet. The type of fibers and the way they are woven are also important factors.

What is thread count?

Our Egyptian Cotton Percale Sheets have a thread count of 400, giving them an extremely crisp and modern feel to them. On the other hand, if you’re looking for sheets with a slightly higher thread count, then our Pima Cotton Percale Sheets are the answer! With a thread count of 500, they are perfectly smooth and luxurious.


The type of weave can also affect the feel and breathability of a sheet. Percale, a tight, plain weave, is known for its crisp and cool feel. Our eucalyptus sheets, cotton percale sheets and baby fitted sheets are made of a percale weave.

On the other hand, sateen is a weave with more yarn on the surface and is known for its smooth and silky feel. Our extremely soft bamboo sheets are made of a smooth sateen weave.


Durability is also an important factor to consider when selecting bed sheets. High-quality sheets are often made with stronger and longer fibers, which makes them more durable and resistant to wear and tear.


Proper care of bedding can also increase the longevity and quality of your bed sheets. It is important to follow the manufacturer's care instructions to ensure that your sheets last as long as possible.

Proper care is required for bedding

By taking these factors into consideration, you can choose the right sheets for your needs and enjoy a comfortable and restful sleep.
