HyggeB's ultra fine threads are the main reason for its sheets being so soft and smooth.

Bamboo Lyocell sheets are made from bamboo pulp using an eco-friendly closed loop process which is non-toxic and recycles 99% of the solvent and water that is used for manufacturing.
This means that it is a sustainable fabric, unlike normal bamboo viscose fabric (otherwise known as bamboo rayon) which uses harmful chemicals in the manufacturing process.
Tencel is the trademarked name for the Lyocell that is produced by German company Lenzing AG.
It is made from the pulp of eucalyptus trees and like Bamboo Lyocell, is produced using a closed loop process.
Sheets made from Bamboo Lyocell and Tencel have a smooth and soft feel. However, you won't get the crisp feeling from cotton sheets, though this is more of a personal preference.
Considered to be the best cotton, sheets made from Egyptian Cotton are softer, finer, and more durable than regular cotton.
Longer cotton staples produce longer threads and stronger fibers, and Egyptian Cotton has one of the longest staples.
The long staples can be spun into fine threads that are softer and stronger than regular cotton.
As these threads can be packed tightly into each square inch, they also result in higher tread counts for the fabric.
In addition, in contrast to regular cotton which is picked by machines, Eqyptian Cotton is hand picked.
This puts considerably less stress on the cotton fibers, leaving them straight and intact.
Single-ply sheets are produced from single-ply yarn which is made from one long thread and can only be spun from long-staple cotton.
Single-ply yarn results in sheets that are light, soft, and yet more durable.
Multi-ply yarn is made from two or more threads twisted together.
They are more likely to be from lower quality, shorter-staple cottons, resulting in threads that are thicker, rougher, and heavier.
Multi-ply sheets are also less breathable than single-ply ones.
Thread count refers to the number of threads that are contained in one square inch of the fabric.
In general, the higher the thread count, the softer the bedsheets will be.
Note that ply affects the thread count as multi-ply sheets allow manufacturers to claim a higher thread count.
A 600 thread count could be from 300 double-ply threads or 600 single-ply threads.
Hence, don't rely just on thread count to make your purchasing decision as a higher thread count sheet may not necessarily mean that the sheet is better!
Many other factors such as the sheet's material and weave will have a big impact on how it feels as well.
Sateen refers to the weave used which is a one-yarn-under and three or four-yarn-over weave (as opposed to the traditional one over and one under weave).
This weave pattern exposes more thread surface, giving sateen sheets a silky feel and lustrous sheen.
While Sateen sheets can feel smoother than regular sheets, they tend to be more prone to snagging or pilling.
