Does Higher Thread Count Always Guarantee Higher Quality?


September 14, 2016

Everyone wants to spend time in a bed that makes them feel comfortable and at ease every time they crawl beneath the covers. One of the ways you do this is by investing in high-quality sheets with a high thread count. After all, high thread counts lend themselves to making sheets as enjoyable to sleep on as possible, right? While it may be perceived that way, just because a sheet sports a high thread count, may not exactly mean that they are going to be heaven on earth to sleep on. Let’s find out why.

Why wouldn’t higher thread count mean higher quality?

Initially, higher thread count did mean high-quality sheets the majority of the time. However, as we discussed in a previous post, thread count is determined by adding the number of horizontal threads (wefts) and vertical threads (warps) that are woven together in a square inch of fabric. Some manufacturers have found a loophole that can mean a high thread count and a low-quality product. What they do is insert extra threads in each square inch of fabric that are not actually woven into the sheet but rather just present. This allows them to add those threads to the their overall equation when they are determining thread count but does not actually make the sheet softer or better in any way.

How can you tell if your sheet is high quality?

All in all, there are three different kind of sheets that will likely never fail you. Those are organic cotton, Egyptian cotton and Pima cotton sheets because they don’t include synthetic materials like other sheets do. Not to mention, they will improve your overall quality of sleep as the lower quality synthetic sheets make breathing more difficult and increase your body temperature.

If you are looking for high-quality sheets that are sure to give you the quality you are looking for without breaking your bank, shop Warm Things today! We have a large selection of different size sheets for you to choose from that you can be sure are made well and with you in mind!
