When shopping for sheets, you should really only have one criterion: softness. To ensure your bed feels as cozy as a teddy bear, we suggest shopping for sheets that are made of percale cotton, flannel, or stonewashed linen. These three materials have proven to be the softest on the market. Don’t believe us? Guess you’ll just have to crawl into bed to find out.
