Luckily, you can find the best luxury bedding when you explore the Belle & June catalog. From materials to weave, thread count to color options, and texture to temperature regulation, all of these factors play a role in finding the luxury sheet set that fits your lifestyle and your sleep comfort zone.

Defining Luxury Linens

Want to know the difference between a mundane and luxury sheet set and other bedding? For starters, you can spot luxury linens by their superior craftsmanship. Simply run your hand along the surface of a luxury linen sheet and feel how smooth and soft it is. Superior texture isn’t only a benefit for sleeping comfort but also suggests that the linens are made from high-quality materials for long-lasting durability.

Why Luxury Linens Matter

Luxury bedding might cost a little more and require some extra care to keep them looking and feeling their best at all times, but you will feel the difference and enjoy the many incredible benefits that come from top-quality luxury bedding.

Increased comfort

A softer, more comfortable bed is a restful and relaxing bed. But one of the best benefits of choosing a luxury brand for your bedding linen is that many are woven with temperature regulation in mind. This offers breathability for a better night's sleep, keeping your body cool on warm, humid evenings, and retaining body warmth on those chilly winter nights.

Gentle to the touch

Typically constructed from high-quality, natural, and organic materials that doesn’t contain an abundance of harsh dyes or chemicals, luxury linens protect your skin with a smoother feel. For many people with sensitive skin, struggling to find a sheet set that is hypoallergenic and won't leave your skin feeling raw and irritated in the morning can be a regular challenge. Instead, purchasing soft, breathable, and organic materials can do wonders for your complexion and your sleep experience.

Better Durability

Low-quality linens aren't just rougher on your skin and sleep quality, they can also be rougher on your pocketbook. It may sound like a cliché but it's true – you get what you pay for. That couldn't be more apt when describing the benefits of luxury linens. These bedding sets are built to last longer without losing their soft, supple texture. Like anything else you purchase, you need to take care of the product and the better you treat your linens, the better they'll treat you over an extended lifespan.

Selecting the Ideal Luxury Linen Set for Your Bed

Selecting the Ideal Luxury Linen Set for Your Bed

You will find a wide variety of choices in the Belle & June catalog and these luxury brands each offer something unique to improve your sleep quality and for a more restful sleep experience. Consider the following important factors when you are ready to make your purchase:

Choose Your Materials Wisely

The fabrics used for manufacturing the product should be high quality. No secret there. But some fabrics might fit your lifestyle and your skin sensitivity better than others. Organic materials are a definite plus as they can be easier on the skin and more luxurious to the touch than synthetic fibers. However, they may present longevity issues and feel abrasive against the skin.

Keep some of these fabric options in mind when you start shopping:

Egyptian Cotton

Yes, it's called Egyptian cotton because it is grown in Egypt along the Nile Delta. No, not all Egyptian cotton originates in Egypt and growers have developed methods for growing Egyptian cotton in other parts of the world. Does this mean some Egyptian cotton is better than other Egyptian cotton? Much like any other material, some products are going to be produced better than others. In the case of Egyptian cotton bedding, it's all in the way it's been grown, combed, developed, and manufactured. The best Egyptian cotton is known for:

  • Extra-Long Fibers: Egyptian cotton is known for its extra-long fibers, which enhance durability, softness, and overall comfort.
  • Luxurious Feel: Authentic Egyptian cotton bedding offers a luxurious experience, distinguishable from other materials by its superior texture.
  • Minimal Lint and Pilling: High-quality Egyptian cotton bedding produces little to no lint or pilling, ensuring a smoother, longer-lasting fabric.
  • Breathability: This cotton is highly breathable and moisture-wicking, providing excellent temperature regulation for a more comfortable sleep.
  • Durability: Egyptian cotton is more durable than regular cotton, extending the lifespan of your bedding.

When looking for Egyptian cotton bedding, it's crucial to ensure authenticity, as some products may not meet these quality standards. Opt for 100% organic cotton to avoid exposure to pesticides and other harmful chemicals often used in conventional cotton farming. Additionally, consider the methods of production and weaving, as these factors can significantly affect the quality and price of the cotton. Prioritizing these aspects will help you enjoy the full benefits of this luxurious material.


Not only is linen a resilient and thicker fabric than other common bedding materials, but it's also 100% biodegradable. Believe it or not, the more you wash it, the softer and more “broken-in” it becomes. This improves breathability while creating a stronger fabric that is built to last. Linen has been a luxury fabric used for bedding because of all these attributes and it's an all-natural fiber that can be gentle on the skin.

Most linen sheets are made from organic sources because pesticides and fertilizers are not used when growing the flax fibers from which linen is made.

Now Let's Talk Thread Count

When you purchase bedding it’s important to check the thread count. This is one of the easiest ways to tell the difference between a low and high-quality product, as generally speaking, the higher your bed sheets' thread count, the softer they are. A lower thread count doesn't just impact the comfort of your sheets, it can also affect quality and durability. Low thread count sheets are often more fragile and can tear much easier than a higher thread count alternative.

But while thread count is important, other factors also come into play when deciding which luxury sheet set to purchase. Your sheets may boast a high thread count but pay close attention to the yarn and the weave. A single-ply yarn is preferred over a multi-ply yarn because the latter can be manufactured using a much thinner thread which can harm your sheet's durability and prove detrimental in preserving the lifespan of the fabric.

Single-ply yarns are stronger and that helps to fortify the strength and durability of the fabric, resulting in a better, high-quality product.

The Weave Pattern of Your Sheet

Sheet weave patterns are far too often overlooked, even though they make a huge difference in the quality and comfort of the bedding you buy. What is weave and why does it matter? The weave of your bedding refers to the horizontal and vertical construction of the threads and various factors contribute to a softer feel and smoother finish. So while a high thread count makes for a softer bed sheet, the weave also plays a role in affecting how it performs and the way it feels against your skin.

A looser weave doesn't necessarily result in a lower-quality product but most popular luxury linens are created using tighter weave patterns. There are pros and cons to tighter vs looser woven sheets, smoothness and durability on the one hand, but tougher to clean and maintain on the other. Some weave patterns offer better resilience and breathability but tighter patterns can provide wrinkle-free convenience.

It's about consumer preference, so consider what you find more appealing when purchasing your bed sheets and choose the appropriate weave pattern.
