What Does Thread Count Mean?
Thread count refers to the number of threads in one area unit of cloth. You may suppose a higher thread count means higher-quality sheets, no it’s not true; makers have tough ways of manipulating that range. Thread count simply measures to what number threads area unit in one area unit. Both the vertical and horizontal side of the sheet or fabric area unit counted up to see the thread count.
What does thread count mean is a general question which is related to bedding. After reading my blog you will never ask such kind of useless questions that what does thread count mean.
There’s a war going on thread count in sheets. People think that higher thread count means is good quality but, this is not true. Some people think this way so, sellers are selling useless bedding for their customers.
By just saying it is higher thread count sheet they are earning much more than its real price.
As much I know about bed and bedding, this is not good, whatever is going into the market. I always write blogs related to bedding to let people know about their bed and bedding accessories, after all, they spend their life’s quarter span on their bed.
So what the reality is behind this thread count?
Manufacturers are actually manipulating with some tricks. What they actually do is make the multiple sheets of 200 or 300 thread count one above the other, till it make a sheet of higher thread counts. It makes the sheet more heavy and crisp, un-breathable and heavy.
If you will use higher thread count than the product will be durable but that will be weighted and will not be breathable. Unlike Lower thread count will be breathable but it won’t be able to give durability.
What I suggest is, 400–600 thread count is enough good for us. It is lightweight, breathable and durable as well. One more advantage we have of it that is, light laundry. After getting wet, it will not become heavier so, it will be easy to wash them.
