HELP! NEED SHEETS THAT DON'T PILL !!!

Started 1385427630.16 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1385506473.147 by magicmoodz

The past couple of years every sheet set I have purchased from many different places all end up pilling. Don't remember having this problem 5 - 10 years ago. I've tried 100% cotton; microfiber; wrinkle resistant and higher thread counts. Doesn't seem to make any difference.

Can anyone out there suggest sheets that don't pill ?????? I would be so grateful for your input.

I hate sheets that pill. Not very comfy. That's why I quit buying them from the Q. I had a problem with them pilling. I bought a set at Sam's & was surprised that they were as nice as they are. 600TC Hotel Luxury Egyptian Cotton. Before that I bought a set of Canopy Egyptian Cotton sheets from Wal-Mart that were really soft.

Are you washing them with other items? Microfiber should not pill.

100% cotton percale sheets from L.L. Bean. They are very crisp and wash well. If, for some reason, you found that they DO pill, then you could send them back at any time.

I can't ever recall having sheets that pilled. Do you wash them with stuff that's causing excessive abrasion/friction?

I only buy 300 tc - and buy them lots of places - always 100% cotton - usually percale.

If you get high-thread count cotton sheets they shouldn't pill. Watch out for synthetic fibers mixed with cotton. I don't really see how microfiber would pill either. I always buy Egyptian cotton sheets with a thread count of at at least 600. Never had a problem.

I wash my king sized sheets with one sheet and one pillowcase in warm water. I then dry on low heat (important). I've never had pilling.

I have never had cotton sateen sheets pill. I've only had pilling on cotton flannel sheets.

I haven't had any of my sheets pill in many years. I remember when I was first married 30 years ago and sheets would pill sometimes but then again I have a couple sets that I got for a housewarming and I still have ...more for nostalgia purposes lol..

Have you tried - JCP and Kohl's..Macy's? I have all of them and no pilling.

I bought a $100 set of 1000tc sheets from Sam's a few years back that are still going strong. I recently got another set 600tc this time and LOVE them!

Oh, have bought Kohl's 800 tc (Jennifer Lopez I think) and they have been great too.

Oh, Kathleen, 1000tc sheets sound decadent! Do you find a noticeable difference between 600 and 1000tc?

The 1000 are stiffer, more "thick" but they are cotton so I don't notice them being "hotter". The 600 just seem thinner, not stiff. Neither are satin-y. I did not know what I was missing when I bought that first set, and couldn't believe I was spending $100 on a set of sheets. The ones I have on the bed are brand new (purple ha ha) at Sam's and love love love them just the same. They are bigger so I don't have to wrestle the mattress to make the bed.

ETA The 1000tc has worn like iron (have had them since 2007), but my 600tc set from Macy's (DH bought a couple years ago Christmas gift) have worn very well too.

I have several sets of Northern Nights 100% cotton and HSN's Highgate Manor 100% cotton and even the oldest (4 years) and the newest (from earlier this year) have not pilled. For the price they have performed as well as sheets I've paid three times more for from Schweitzer Linen. I also have a Highgate Manor microfiber which has not pilled, but is too thin for my taste. My other sets are an LL Bean flannel and a Malden Mills polartec. Only the older flannel has pilling.

I have also had very good luck with Target for high thread count sheets. I have some that are more than 10 years old and are super soft. And have held their color. I have some very nice Northern Nights too. Sorry you haven't had good luck.

Oh, Kathleen, this is just the information I am looking for. In fact, I posed the question on the For the Home thread a while back, but didn't really get an answer. I love THICK sheets. I had a set that was so old, the bottom sheet actually shredded in a little area. I want to replace them, but didn't even know what I should be looking for.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I was going to say the same thing. I have 2 sets of queen size from LLB. They are both over 10yrs old and are still comfy with very little fading. One set is white with blue stripes. I had a bandaged foot from a bad cut and managed to get blood on the sheets. Threw them in the wash with a little bleach and they came out perfect.

I must say that they are a bit pricey; but I think I got my money's worth from them.

what a long strange trip it's been

I haven't found that thickness on their sheets since - so when you find some please let me know!

I have never experienced that problem- I buy my sheets at Pottery Barn and love them!

I have never had any sheets pill; the only ones that may pill would be those that are a blend; the poly/cotton will definitely pill. I can't imagine why you would have 100% cotton sheets pill; that is all I use.
