Softest Sheets in the World

by Kay~Kacey on 2/13/2008

Okay, maybe not the softest in the whole wide world, but darn close. And I am a sheet connoisseur. Honest. I like high thread count, all cotton sheets. I’ve paid top dollar for really good sheets. I admit. I hate sleeping on cheap sheets.

So I was visiting my son last week. Stayed at his place. I could not believe how soft the sheets were on the bed. So I asked him where he got them.

Walmart.

So after I picked myself off the floor, I asked him WHEN he got them, because I wanted some. I needed some. He’d gotten them at the beginning of the semester, so off we go to Walmart. Well, as luck would have it. (well, I’m not usually this lucky. Usually they’d be out of Queen size or only have them in baby puke beige or something.) I found them in a lovely pale lavender. See?

Honestly, doesn’t that picture even SHOW how soft these sheets are? And SuperGuy is a secure in his manhood type of guy. He won’t mind the lavendar color. So. No problem with the lovely lavender color.

And because I’m so generous, here is a close up of the label. So you can run out and buy them for yourself. I’m thoughtful that way. At Walmart… :shock:

But, wait! There’s more. I have a link to them on the Walmart website. Even better yet. Shopping from the comfort of your home! And did I mention they were on clearance? Lovely, soft sheets here.

Really, I take such good care of you guys…

So are you picky about your sheets?

I’ve gotten pickier over the years. It’s hard to find good sheets. The most expensive sheets I ever bought, high thread count, all-cotton, were lovely and soft. The first time I washed them, they went pilly. Made me wonder if I should go back to the cheap ones.

Suzanne February 13, 2008 at 8:18 am

Oh cool. I’ll look for those!!

Mental Pause Mama February 13, 2008 at 8:26 am

I am going to make a beeline for Walmart today.

Kacey February 13, 2008 at 8:45 am

Aren’t they just yummy looking? And they are already like your favorite old sheets that you’ve washed 100 times and love because they are so buttery soft.

We have a set of sheets like that, that are SO ugly, but we use them because they are so, SO incredibly soft!

Miz Booshay February 13, 2008 at 10:30 am

Thank you!!!!! I am going to buy some too.

I bought Wamsutta sheets for years. Without any treatment. They were soft and had scalloping and I loved them. They were the original old fashioned sheets.
Now they are hard to find and muy expensive.

My pillowcase has just ripped….they are that old and loved.

I can’t wait to try these!!!

i got the softest (cheap, too $59.99) king-size sheets at Tuesday Morning – they were Italian cotton, whatever that is – and 1000 threads per inch. They’re so darn thick I can only wash one sheet at a time. Went back to get another set and, of course there are no more.
I’ll be following Mental Mama to Walmart after work today. 400 thread count…….lovely!!

Thanks for the heads up! (I hear Target also has incredibly soft inexpensive sheets too.

I think one thing that makes those sheets so soft is they are made of 100% Pima cotton. When I got married a hundred years ago(acutally 43), I got a set of Pima cotton sheets in my wedding shower. They were my favorites, and you can’t wear them out. They finally frayed around the edges and the middle got thin. I ended up making crib sheets for my last child. The sheets were 13 years old by then, and still great.

i so hate **rough** sheets…
especially if they are
~~baby puke beige~~

:-)

true confession:
i pay more for great sheets
than i do for clothes…

Tori Lennox February 13, 2008 at 1:34 pm

Oh, pretty! And one of my favorite colors! I use flannel sheets almost exclusively, even in summer. Just because they’re so much softer than most of the cotton sheets I’ve ever had.

College Mama February 13, 2008 at 4:18 pm

I am picky about my sheets. I figure that I spend a third of my life in bed (well, ideally at least). So, I might as well be as comfortable as possible. Thanks for the tip!

Kate February 13, 2008 at 6:56 pm

Yes, I’m picky. But when I’m tired, I’ll sleep on anything. I bought 1000 count pima cotton sheets from Amazon last Christmas (2006) on sale for $60 queen sized. They sold out in a week. They feel like silk. But right now, my husband likes sleeping on flannel when it’s this cold. And I miss my 1000 count sheets.

Kate February 13, 2008 at 6:57 pm

I don’t know where the comment went that I just posted, so I’ll try again.

I have 1000 count sheets I bought on sale from Amazon in 2006 for $60 and they are awesome. But I’m planning on going to Walmart and getting these, too. Thanks!

nannykim February 13, 2008 at 9:48 pm

I bought some sheets–in the late fall that were on sale–these were cheap and I think the thread count was probably not high. When you wash them they are quite a bit wrinkly–but I love the feel of them–not sure if they were the ones you have–but I went out and bought another pair immediatel afterwords! :crazy2:

Christine February 14, 2008 at 1:58 am

I don’t buy fancy or expensive sheets at all. But then again, I still have babies and toddlers around. The last set of sheets were trashed because Joshua was born on them. :wink:

Misty Dawn February 15, 2008 at 12:21 am

I think you are one of my new best friends… first, you find me some super soft sheets which I can afford… then you show me that you like purple, which is my favorite color… and THEN… THEN you make this available to me online (I don’t like to go anywhere)… I think this is the start of a BE A U Tiful friendship!

jeannie May 2, 2008 at 7:01 pm

it says you cannot buy those walmart sheets online, and I cannot find them within 100 miles of my Maine zip code. What areas are these purple sheets located in? Thanks.

marla May 28, 2008 at 8:56 am

I agree with Margery – I have bought several sets of cotton sateen sheets, with fairly high thread counts, and they get pilled up in the first few nights of use.
I just bought some at Wal-Mart, but could not find the ones you mentioned. The only Home Trends one are cotton blend, so I got Canopy with a 300 thread count, cotton sateen.
They got pilled up within 3 nights so I am returning them.

Darlene July 16, 2008 at 7:32 pm

I’ll go check those out but I don’t know…I’m such a sheet snob. I’ve always gotten mine from elegantlinenspc.com. When we travel I take my own sheets to the hotel…I know…my obsession is out of hand! I can’t sleep on anything else!

Evan November 22, 2008 at 4:14 pm

Thanks for the heads up. I could definitely use another set of sheets, so why not get the softest sheets in the world (especially if they’re on clearance)? :wink: Hopefully, my local Wally World will have them in stock.

Just ordered sheets from Thomas Lee, very pricey. I will let you know!!!
Couldn’t find WM sheets. After reading many comments, consensus seems to be 100% pima cotton is best. No sateen, anyway that’s where I’m going. I have 30 days to return these, if not satisfied. Anybody bought from Thomas Lee?

HappyShopper1 December 12, 2009 at 1:42 pm

If you really want the best softest sheets in the world go for the Comphy Co Sheets. They are guaranteed for 300 washings. Where else do you get a guarantee like that, thats why 5 star hotels use them. King set in chocolate for 120.00 and you can order extra pillowcases!

Karen C August 5, 2010 at 12:40 pm

I agree with HappyShopper1. When we first bought our king size bed, I went to Sam’s Club because they had 1000 count sheets on sale. They were fabulous at first, but quickly started to pill. I was in Vegas at a spa and they used Comphy sheets. I was thrilled to find out they also had a home bedding line. I found them on line at StopDropandRelax.com (not sure if you can get them directly from Comphy). They are the softest sheets ever and like happyshoer said, they are guaranteed for 300 washings. I haven’t washed them that many times yet :) but so far so good.

happyshopper1 August 5, 2010 at 1:14 pm

You can order the Comphy Co sheets at this web address guaranteed the best price or refund of the difference and 10% back. You will not be disappointed in them I promise.

happyshopper1 August 5, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Sorry you can order the sheets at http://www.FreeIslandVacation.com Comphy Co will not sell them direct, you have to go thru one of their resorts but Island Hideaway is the best price I have found on them. They come in Chocolate, White, Green Tea, Ivory and Sivler Blue (its a muted light blue). They also have matching duvets, quilted blankets, quilted pillow shams. I have the whole set in Ivory and Silver blue mix it is beautiful.

Sheet Needer September 8, 2010 at 12:12 am

I can’t find them anywhere!! :(
Walmart, Target, not available on line.
Any ideas?

susan May 6, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Tawny June 22, 2013 at 8:18 pm

IN regards to the sheets, I LOVE them!! I found this post a couple years back and thought I woould give it a try. They were instantly my favorite sheets. I am now getting new bedding and am sooooo happy that I again found this post….well this time I was looking for it because I couldn’t remember the name of the sheets and the tags are worn. I am a super picky sheet buyer because I will settle for nothing less than the softest and these are truly the softest. Thank you a million times over!!!

Susie December 2, 2013 at 10:36 am

Well, it is now 2013, and yes, I bought those same sheets on Black Friday way back then. My sheets are so old now but still soooooo soft. I have searched high and low and can not find them anymore. Has anyone had any luck? If so, please post.

Tawny December 2, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Susie I have googled til I was blue in the face, I honestly think they don’t exist any more. I have looked everywhere, on a million different pages on the internet. I’ve been to walmart and many other stores and can’t find them anywhere. I did find some microfiber sheets online that I am going to try, I’m jst waiting for my new bed (upgrading to a king). I bought the sheets already but haven’t slept in them yet. They feel quite soft to the touch but we’ll see once I go to sleep. Here’s the link it was a super deal, not sure if it’s still available http://www.nomorerack.com/daily_deals/view/645076-6-Piece_Set:_Ultra-Soft_Egyptian_Comfort_1600_Series_Bed_Sheets
