You know the exact size of your bed. Now check the exact size of the sheets. Be sure that the fitted sheet is deep enough for your mattress, or that you haven't found a California King sheet set and your bed is an Eastern King. Remember that many sheets will shrink as much as 7% in the first washing.
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.)
