Shopping for sheets isn’t the easiest thing in the world. Good quality sheets are typically expensive, and they can feel one way in the store and very different after a wash. Luckily, these 100 percent Egyptian cotton sheets have garnered rave reviews—more than 17,000!— for everything from being incredibly soft to not shrinking and wearing well night after night.

And today only, a queen set is $55 (down from $94) and a king set is $60 (down from $100). Twin, twin XL, full and California king sizes are also massively reduced.

Made of a luscious sateen weave, these sheets are 800 thread count. What’s thread count, you say? It’s the number of threads that are woven into one square inch of fabric. Lots of people pay up for 1,000 thread count sheets, thinking the higher the thread count, the higher the quality.

But quality really comes down to the fiber—and these are made of long staple cotton, which is the best kind. Staple refers to how long the cotton fiber is; the longer the fiber, the softer, stronger and lighter weight the fabric feels. And this set feels amazing and wears well, as reviewers attest.

One shopper wrote: “I love these sheets! It’s getting hard to find 100% cotton sheets, and this collection is great. They are a good thickness and soft but crisp after washing. If you like cotton instead of microfiber, buy these sheets. You won’t be disappointed!”

Thanks to deep pockets, they fit mattresses up to 18 inches thick. So they’re perfect for pillow tops.

Sweaty sleeper? The breathable fabric is designed to wick away moisture, keeping you cool and dry. The set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases. Sweet dreams indeed!
