    Do they compare with frette? I guess I am lazy & just do frette - don't have to think about anything.

    I'm trying this linen thing out.

    I've always liked percale (none of this ultra high thread count BS), and those sweethome recommended LL Bean sheets are perfectly nice.

    But I recently changed bed sizes and needed new sheets. Found a clearance Macy's hotel collection linen fitted sheet and a Target house brand duvet cover... Always wanted to try linen and this was cheap.

    So far... Not sure. I like them, but do I like them more than a nice crisp cotton percale? Or really, like $3x more? Also, I think they are going to be more prone to cat claw damage.

    Still trying to get everything dialed in with the new mattress though. Have experimented with two different mattress pads/protectors and they have felt too hot. I don't need full on waterproof, but I need...something below the sheet to catch the stains. For my old mattress, I have a cheapo pad that doesn't really add noticable padding, but provides some protection without holding in heat/moisture... But the new version of that cheapo Target pad is a different material and I have woken up sweating (and the other options were too puffy). The waterproof protectors just seem like overkill, and the one I tried still seems warm.
