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 refers to how many threads make up one square inch of sheet fabric, including the horizontal threads (called weft) and the vertical threads (called warp.) Typically, this number ranges from 150 count (these are the cheap sheets you'll often find in children's bedding sets) up to 1ꯠ or more (the most expensive luxury sheets.)
