Apparently some people don't care about the sheets they sleep on, and don't think much about the subject. That's never been the case with me. I don't like to spend a lot of money, particularly since I don't have much right now, but I do try to buy the best quality I can for the money I have available to spend. I've always liked super soft sheets and blankets. I can't handle having anything scratchy on my skin, and the Fibromyalgia has made it so that I don't even use some of my former sheets, blankets and even clothing because of discomfort. I think good sheets are worth splurging on, especially since I tend to keep mine for a long time. I usually have 3-4 sets that I cycle through, so they last for years. The high quality well made sheets get softer with use and won't shrink up in the wash. I tried buying a replacement set a while back, and I made the mistake of purchasing them online, rather than in person. I like shopping online when I know the brand and quality, but I took a chance, and it was a waste of money. I could pretty much see through the sheets, they were so thin, and they were a little scratchy, too. I used them once, washed them, and donated them. I'm sure there are people who won't mind how thin they are, or will use them for other purposes, such as drop cloths. Are you a sheet snob? Does quality matter when you're buying bedding?
