    Am I right, Tallulah? Aren't they about $700 for a set of 700TC sheets?

    I wish that *I* were on my bedsheets right now. My munchkin's sleep schedule was mucked with over the weekend and she is back to her old trips. Sleepy parents in this house.

    But miles of laundry before I sleep, miles of laundry before I sleep.

    Well, maybe if you got rid of the smelly fish and large horned moose you'll have a much better chance!

    God, you can tell that I was sleepy when I typed that. I meant to say she was up to her old 'tricks' not 'trips'

    What's the average thread count for a sheet? I honestly have no idea. If 700 Count is $700, I imagine my sheets are, like, 30 Count.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Was that a Freudian slip, eldee? My original post didn't mention a large horned moose, just a moose.
    So, eldee, How you doin'?

    It sounds as it Paulie sleeps on sandpaper. Well, at least he won't have any parts to bother shaving.

    It's too bad that I buy better bedding for my brother than I do for myself.

    Probably not that bad, honey. Even the kind they sell at Walmart are around 200 or 250tc. It's when you pass by 500 that they start getting expensive.

    From ask Yahoo:
    http://ask.yahoo.com/ask/20020528.html

    What does the thread count of sheets refer to?

    We searched on "thread count of sheets" and "linens buying guide" and had to rip past dozens of sites trying to sell sheets before we found your answer. Finally, we came to rest upon this definition: thread count is the number of horizontal and vertical threads in one square inch of fabric.
    Thread count in sheets can range from 80 to 700, although most stores sell sheets that range from 180 to 320. In general, the higher the thread count, the softer the fabric feels, but that doesn't necessarily mean the sheets will last longer (and sheets with a higher thread count are usually more expensive). One linens department manager says thread counts above 380 are "kind of a farce." Manufacturers twist two threads in a way that lets them double the sheet's thread count.

    Recently, many linens manufacturers have touted thread count as the best way to choose a sheet. But others point out that the quality of the fibers and finish are more important to the sheet's comfort and durability. In fact, sheets made of linen, flannel, or jersey (those trendy "T-shirt" sheets) have low thread counts due to the type of fabric. A high thread count would eliminate part of the appeal of these sheets.

    According to Consumer Reports, cotton and cotton-blend sheets with a thread count of 180 to 200 stand up to wear and tear and provide satisfactory comfort.
