Ready to shift your bedding from winter to spring? Lucky you. Right now, Bed Bath & Beyond is having its Your Best Sleep Event, where you can find incredible deals on all kinds of bed linens. We're talking savings on quilts, coverlets, duvets, pillowcases, flat sheets, fitted sheets — you get the picture.

When it comes time to shop for sheets, you've probably heard that high thread counts are better than lower thread counts. (True.) But beyond that, the world of bed linens can be oddly overwhelming. What's the difference between Pima cotton and Egyptian cotton, for instance? And is sateen or percale better for your sleeping needs? And, of course, the question on everybody's mind: should I be sleeping on silk sheets?

To highlight the answers to all of these and more bedding questions, we've created a guide to different sheet fabrics. Our hope: you'll use it to gauge which ones will be your best-bet bedding. Read on, and pretty soon you'll really know your sheet.
