HOTEL-STYLE EGYPTIAN COTTON

Price: $60-$70

COTTON BLEND 1,200 THREAD COUNT

Price: $35-$57
At a low price, a sky-high thread count is no guarantee that sheets will feel like butter on your skin, but reviews confirm that these are soft and heavy. The set is a blend of cotton and polyester, which are durable materials for regular machine washing and keep body heat inside the sheets, so you don't have to crank the thermostat in cold weather.

HEAVYWEIGHT FLANNEL SHEETS

Flannel sheets are one of the comfiest ways to add luxury to cold winter days. The thick fabric traps heat and feels extra soft, making a bed into a pillowy comfort zone. (Score extra-low prices during end-of-season sales and be prepared for next winter.)

COTTON JERSEY

Price: $46-$74
