Buying the Right Bed Sheets To Suit Your Needs

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 38   |   Comments: 0

Thread counts, weave and fibre are the most import factors when choosing bed linen.

Thread count can range from 175-1000 counts. The count is measured by the number of threads running in both directions, the length (warp) and the width ( weft), that are contained in one square inch of fabric. The greater the thread count, the more luxurious the fabric will feel.

However, a higher thread count will usually mean that the individual threads are thinner to achieve a luxurious feel and so may not last as long. For the best lasting bed linen sheets, we suggest you choose a thread count of 200 or above but not lower than 175.

Bed linen sheets can be woven in percale, flannel and sateen weave.

Percale weave is popular for bed linen and has a thread count of 180 or above.  It has medium weight, is firm and smooth with no gloss.

Flannel or flanelette is made from plain or twill weave, which can have a single or double raised thread/nap which creates heat retention points making flannel a warm soft fabric. It may be brushed to create extra softness or remain unbrushed. This makes it popular for winter time bed linen sheets.
