Creature Comforts

Ambien, acupuncture, counting sheep: all fine tricks in the insomniac’s playbook, but none quite so potent as counting thread—preferably 100 percent Egyptian cotton in the 500-to-600 range. For discriminating dozers, Frette sheets are the over-the-counter snooze aid of choice. The Italian linens company opens its Boston flagship this month in what’s now the Back Bay’s most coveted bit of retail real estate, the Mandarin Oriental hotel, where guests will sleep easier knowing there’s Frette bedding in each of its 150 rooms and suites. Indeed, nothing keeps your engine purring like a good night’s rest.

Cotton poplin and sateen sheet sets ($700–$1,800), 776 Boylston St., Boston, 617-267-0500, frette.com.
