Apart from many other aspects of normal life, we're really missing travel and hotels during this pandemic. The feeling of slipping under crisp hotel sheet...Well, if we can't go to hotels, we can at least get hotel-quality, crisp white sheets in the Wayfair Black Friday sale. There are lots of styles on offer in different cotton thread counts, so we've narrowed down our search to the top five styles for looks, quality, and low sale price. See them below.
A disclaimer: while we have arranged these in ascending order of thread count, it's not the be-all of cotton sheets. Think of the thread count as more of an indicator of weight and thickness, but even thinner sheets can be of very good quality, so it's more down to preference. All of our top picks are 100 per cent cotton, though – no polyester.
1. The soft white set with tasselled edges

The understated macrame finish on the edges of this bedlinen set is so pretty, and the sheets themselves have a slight satin sheen, which also gives them a smooth, cool touch. We love the slightly off-white colour – this just screams luxury Parisian hotel room.
