Have splurged on 1000-count sateen weave white egyptian cotton bedsheets and they are amazing. Am also pleased because now I have a full white load to do in the wash instead of having to keep waiting for more white stuff to be washed.
It's an upgrade from my previous 450 count sheets and the difference is significant.
Totally worth the money and would recommend everyone to buy the best bedsheets they can afford. After all, one spends 1/3 of one's life in bed.
