What's all the fuss about with sheet thread count? Get the lowdown on what actually counts when choosing the perfect sheet.
When it comes to bed linens, thread count is the buzz phrase. The notion that a high thread count is better, softer and more luxurious has influenced many customers decisions when purchasing sheets. But a high thread count doesn't necessarily translate into better quality. The thread count myth is actually a clever marketing ploy. Read on to discover more about your perfect sheets.
The longer the fibres, the stronger and more durable the sheet. The thickness, length and quality of the fibres or staples determine the ultimate feel of the bedding. Finer and longer threads (staples) create softer, smoother and better wearing sheets. In fact, a 500 thread count sheet made of premium fibres can be a higher quality than a 1000 count sheet with shorter fibres.
Higher thread count sheets allow less airflow, 1000 thread count bedding work best in cooler or climate controlled environments. For warmer climates consider eco Tencel, organic bamboo or a maximum of 500 thread count cotton fibres.
Percale is a plain weave and is known for its crisp feel. Think 5 star hotel sheets, our 500 Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Percale fits the bill perfectly.
Organic bamboo sheets have a very light, silky feel, and has moisture wicking properties to keep you cool and dry. Available through our custom sized sheets department.
Yacht beds are rarely standard sizes or shapes. A good fitting set of sheets makes making cabin beds a breeze.
