5 Most Comfortable Sheets of 2022

Author: Manchester Collection  Date Posted:12 August 2022 

If you're looking for the most comfortable sheets to help you get a good night's sleep, look no further! We've rounded up five of the best options.

One of the keys to getting a good night’s sleep is making sure you’re comfortable. And while some people think all they need is a comfortable bed, the importance of sheets is often overlooked. If you have ill-fitting and scratchy sheets, even the most comfortable bed can become a nightmare (pun intended).

Comfortable sheets come in various sizes and can be made out of different materials, so you have a lot of options to consider. If you’re looking for the most comfortable sheets of 2022 and want to learn how to choose the perfect bedding, you’ve come to the right place.


How to pick the right sheet fabric

We often talk about thread count when deciding how comfortable a sheet is, but that’s far from the only factor you need to consider. Fabric is also very important, or to be more specific, the fibre content of the fabric and the construction.

Here is what you need to look at when picking your sheet fabric.


Fibre content

Fibre content represents what the sheet’s fabric is made out of and you can see it on the product label. There are various materials sheets can be made out of, but the most popular choice is cotton because the fibre is very soft, has a natural feeling, and is incredibly durable.

You should choose the fibre content depending on what kind of feel you’re looking to get. Those who want smooth comfortable sheets will often opt for silk. This material regulates your temperature nicely and is known for being luxurious, but the downside is that silk bedding is usually very expensive.

Those who want sheets that are breathable and airy usually go for linen, which is perfect for the summer months. Linen sheets also have a very unique texture and are crisp so they ensure a comfortable sleep, especially when it’s hot outside.

If someone’s looking for an affordable option, the best choice would probably be polyester, as sheets made out of this fibre content are smooth and wrinkle-resistant while also being less expensive. They’re less luxurious than cotton, however, and can have a synthetic feel.

Another option you can choose is regeneration cellulose, which is often known as viscose or rayon. These sheets are constructed out of plants such as eucalyptus trees or bamboo that go through a chemical process to become fibres. These types of sheets are known for being extremely comfortable.



Construction refers to how the fabric was built and has a big effect on the feel of the sheets. 

Here is what you can expect from different constructions:

●      Percale – Very basic weave that feels light, crisp, and breathable.

●      Flannel – Brushed fabric that is usually made out of cotton and has a warm and cosy feel to it.

●      Microfiber – Extremely soft polyester fibres that have a flimsy feel when compared to other constructions.

●      Sateen – Silky smooth weave that feels very soft, typically softer than percale.

●      Jersey – Soft and stretchy knit material that has moisture-wicking features.


Factors to consider when buying bed sheets

Before you go on a hunt for the perfect comfortable bed sheets, there are a few factors you need to consider.


Your ideal fibre content

We’ve already talked about what different fibre contents bring to the table, so you should choose based on your needs. Take into account what you read in the section above when choosing your ideal fibre content.



The construction, also known as the weave type, of the sheets can affect the feel and look of the sheets drastically. Before you opt for a sheet, decide what kind of construction would suit you best and think about whether you prioritize softness, breathability, warmth, or something else.


Thread count

While the fibre content and the construction are the two most important factors that determine how soft a sheet will be, you still shouldn’t forget about the thread count. A high thread count doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality. But typically, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheets.

There’s no need to go overboard with the thread count if you don’t want to or simply can’t afford it. But a thread count that’s anywhere between 200 and 800 is considered good. However, keep in mind that for some materials such as bamboo, the thread count is irrelevant because this material isn’t woven.



It’s a common misconception that you need to spend a lot of money to get a high-quality bed sheet. If you’re looking for something that is a mixture of high quality and good value, it might cost you up to $100, but there are also some amazing options that cost much less.

The price of the sheet isn’t the indicator of whether it’s comfortable or not. Still, it’s reasonable to expect that if a sheet is extremely cheap, it probably isn’t too comfortable.


Temperature regulation

If you want to make sure you choose sheets that will keep you comfortable all night, look for temperate-regulating technology. Some sheets also come with moisture-wicking capabilities that will help you avoid overheating. The same can be said for materials that have inherent cooling aspects, such as linen.



Ideally, you should look for bedding that is highly durable. While it’s hard to tell how durable a sheet is just from its sheet fabric, your best bet would be to choose a sheet from a reputable retailer. Sellers with good ratings and a large selection usually pride themselves on selling durable sheets.


Wrinkle resistance

While this isn’t an important factor for everyone, if you’re someone who prefers smooth sheets that don’t have a lot of creases, you should look into those with wrinkle resistance. Some even come with an additional wrinkle-resistant finish. How much a sheet will wrinkle mostly depends on its fibre content.

Some people still prefer the natural and rugged look or simply don’t care, but if you do care about wrinkle resistance, you can find something suited for your needs.


Care instructions

Most sheets are machine washable, but that isn’t always the case. Before you buy bedding, make sure you can clean and maintain it properly. Some sheets can be thrown in with the rest of your laundry, some call for delicate cycles, while others need to be washed in cold water.

Just to point out that your sheets will be cleaned if they’re washed in hot or warm water so it’s best to choose bedding that can withstand higher temperatures. You will find care instructions on the sheet tag or the seller’s website easily, so make sure to check the instructions before purchasing.
