I get a catalog that specalizes in those extra fit sheets for thick mattresses, I can't remember the name and can't find an old catalog right now but one should be coming before Christmas, and I will post the name. They are very reasonable and also carry the mattress toppers that are just like a pillow top mattress. Darn I hate when I can't remember something....

Well, Chatty, as long as you remember to come here and spend time with us...that's something we won't let you forget!

You can always get good sheets at Bed Bath and Beyond, or Linens and Things - actually Target has had a 300 count set very reasonable for some time now. They do wrinkle up, though, in the dryer - best to hang them out if you can (goodness, the fresh scent alone makes up for a lot of woes...). Stay away from the percale, even if it means less wrinkes. They make pills in time (that doggone polyester) and are scratchy then. All cotton sheets have gotten VERY expensive lately, you can find them from 80 to over 400. for qs sets. They make some from Bamboo now, avail. at Target and Bed Bath and Beyond, I understand they are very soft yet cool (important!) and launder very well - also are a low-impact renewable resource. Anyone with the bamboo fabric sheets out there, give a shout out for your comparison!

judym, I haven't seen the bambbo sheets, but will look for them. I have one last trip to Linens and Things to do with my daughter before she leaves for college so I'll check them out. Sounds odd, but then again, we eat animals and that totally freaks me out. Why not sleep on bamboo? What's next?

I've never heard of bamboo sheets either. My granddaughter (5) will appreciate that! She's half Chinese and loves all things Chinese. She'd be so tickled and delighted to be sleeping on bamboo sheets...of course, they'd have to be made out of LUCKY bamboo.
