Sheets that don't specify any particular type of weave are generally a basic weave with the same amount of threads in the weft and warp. These tend to be low thread count and quite inexpensive. When it comes to named weaves, the two most common are percale and sateen.
Thread Count: Most people are familiar with thread count, but many mistakenly assume that it's the only important factor to consider when choosing sheets. A sheet's thread count reveals the number of threads _ both horizontal and vertical _ contained in one square inch of fabric. While it's true that in general, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet, it's also true that midrange thread counts _ 400 to 600 _ are often very soft, are usually more durable than sheets with super_high thread counts and are far more affordable. So don't rely on thread count alone to make your decision: the sheet's weave and fabric also have a big impact on its feel.
