#2. UPGRADE YOUR SHEETS & COVERS
No need to bore yourself researching thread counts when you’re picking new sheets. The numbers are essentially a marketing ploy after you hit 400 threads per square inch.

We’re basing it on knowing how goddamn comfy Egyptian cotton is. The set comes with two pillowcases, one flat and one fitted sheet and is available in plenty of colors.
