Many people would agree that few things compare to the feeling that comes with going to sleep on a comfortable mattress at the end of a long, hard day. Not many things are better than getting a good, restful night of sleep, especially when that good night’s sleep is on a quality, comfortable mattress. Most are aware of the benefits that a good mattress can offer, however, it seems that many often overlook the benefits of other sleep gear, such as a good pillow, a nice blanket, the bed frame and even the quality of your sheets.
While all of these are important, some suggest that the quality of the sheets we use on our beds are even more important because they are what comes in direct contact with our bodies as we are asleep. If you have ever owned a luxury set of sheets with at least a 1000 thread count, then you will know exactly just what they mean! High-quality, luxury sheets are perhaps the finest detail that really completes the sleeping experience. For those who are curious, here are 7 of the most expensive sheets in the world!
7.) Dreamsacks Seamless Silk
Dreamsacks Seamless Silk sheets are worth around $655 for the set and are the 7th most expensive sheets in the world. These sheets are reportedly made from such fine silk that Dreamsacks themselves promises that they are softer than the highest thread count cotton sheets. They feature a charmeuse trim and silk piping on the hem. They are made from a special satin weave that leaves one side extra glossy in appearance and the other side matte. The matte finish is achieved by washing the silk with sand before manufacturing the sheet.
6.) Sferra Capri Honey Egyptian Cotton Sateen
The Sferra Capri Honey Egyptian Cotton Sateen 1020TC sheets cost around $670, making them the 6th most expensive sheets in the world. These sheets are spun in Italy and then imported across the world. Made from luxurious satin and fine cotton spun together, these sheets also have an extremely high thread count. Described as “pure perfection” by Sferra, the Capri Honey Egyptian Cotton Sateen sheets are also adorned with intricate and elaborate designs, each with an inset border in the luxurious jacquard style of weaving.
5.) Milos 1020TC Sateen
The number 5 spot on the list of the most expensive sheets in the world goes to the Milos 1050TC Sateen sheets. The Milos 1020TC Sateen sheets are roughly $745. These sheets are made with the highest quality, longest staple Egyptian cotton that is on the market and is spun into what is known as a “gossamer yarn”. Gossamer yarn is a very fine fabric that resembles the texture of cobwebs spun from a spider. The Milos 1020TC Sateen sheets are also made in Italy and are interwoven using a sateen weave. These sheets also boast an elaborate hemstitch border design.
4.) Millesimo by Sferra
Making a high jump in price tag as we move to number 4 on the list of the most expensive sheets in the world are the Millesimo sheets by Sferra, costing $1395. Millesimo by Sferra are another set of luxurious sheets that are spun in the beautiful country of Italy. Proudly, Sferra ensures that these sheets are made from 100 percent Egpytian cotton and have a thread count of 1020 per square inch. Known across the world for their high quality linens, Sferra personally handcrafts a letter and sends one with every purchase, ensuring their high quality and customer satisfaction. Like many other high-quality, luxurious sheets, the Millesimo are made only upon request.
3.) Frette Hellas Seaweed Border
As number three on the list, it would make sense that the Frette Hellas Seaweed Border sheets are about $1695 to own. The Frette Hellas Seaweed Border sheets are yet another set that are made in the wonderful country of Italy. The name itself refers to the country where the sheets were designed and made. They are one of the most expensive sheets on the market because of their elaborate design. The sheets come in a set with seaweed pattern borders and a sea anemone on the top sheet and shams each with four frills. The weave is a cotton sateen with a velvet like texture.
2.) D. Porthault Jours De Paris
Costing around $1900, the D. Porthault Jours De Paris sheet set is the second most expensive in the world. These costly, luxurious high-end sheets are made from percale, a type of cotton weave. The percale weave gives them a tight and firm texture and is part of what makes these sheets so expensive. Each sheet also has decorative and elaborate hemstitching details, some with mesmerizing green thread that are sure to lull you into a deep, calm sleep as you rest upon sheets that are made from the highest quality pure cotton.
1.) Charlotte Thomas “Bespoke”
Coming in at number one on the list of the most expensive sheets in the world are the Charlotte Thomas Bespoke sheets, which are around $2400. These sheets truly are fit for a king as they literally have 22 karat gold woven directly into the fabric. The Charlotte Thomas Bespoke sheets are crafted from the finest merino wool, backed with a silk jacquard, and then added to a 1000 thread count high quality Egyptian cotton sheet. These sheets are also handmade and catered to your personal specifications, taking around 12 weeks to be completed, more or less.
