Bed Linen - Thread Count

Bed Linen - Thread Count

Thread Count means the number of threads woven together in a square inch. You count both lengthwise (warp) and widthwise (weft) threads. So 200 lengthwise threads woven with 200 widthwise threads produce a Thread Count of 400.

Its not double the Thread Count, double the thickness though as a finer, higher quality thread is used to achieve a higher thread count making it smoother.

Beware of cheap alternatives which are Two Ply, this is when two fibres are twisted together and for example where a 400 thread count is really a 200 thread count. Two Ply or Twisted are no where near as smooth or as long lasting as our Single Plys. John Lewis and other large UK department stores have just been investigated and now have to state if there thread counts are twisted.

Jersey and Flannelette bedding don't have a thread count, they have a GSM (Grams Per Square Metre). The higher the gsm the heavier the cloth.

Our 100% combed cotton jersey fitted sheets are specifically designed for memory foam products and electric / adjustable beds, but also ideal as a super soft sheet on standard size beds.

Cotton Jersey is a soft jersey knit which moves with the contours of your body and the mattress. Like memory foam, knitted fabric will retain its shape after being stretched making it more suitable for memory foam products than typical woven bedlinen.

Pure 100% Mulberry Silk

Besides its luxurious softness and lustrous beauty, there are various benefits of silk that other man-made fabrics simply cannot match. Absolute Pure Luxury!

In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust. It's smooth surface resists soil and odours well. Silk is wrinkle and tear resistant, washes easily and dries quickly. Silk also has great cosmetic qualities for hair and skin. Hair can become shiny through contact with the silk and wrinkles in skin can be visually reduced by regular usage.
