How to Purchase Bed Linen Sheets

In order to purchase quality bed linen sheets that will serve you many years and get softer after each wash, one has to know some key factors. 1. The first one is a thread count . Thread count refers to the number of threads, both vertical and horizontal, in 1 square inch of fabric. It it generally considered that a thread count of higher than 100 is desirable –and anything above 180 is ideal. There are fabrics available with thread counts up to 1000, but anything that excess 400 is thought by many to be simply extraneous. In general - the greater the thread count, the softer and more luxurious the bed sheets will feel.

We would not advise purchasing your bed linen sheets of more than 400 thread count. Although they may be marketed as super luxurious, a very high thread count usually means that the individual threads are thinner therefore a 1000 thread count bed sheet may not be as durable as a 250 thread count sheet. The best option is to buy bed sheets of a thread count of 200-400. (more…)
