Here is some information from ExceptionalSheets.com regarding Thread Count Myths:
Many consumers make the false assumption that higher thread count linens are more luxurious than lower thread count linens. Here, Exceptional Sheets owner Paul Saunders sheds some light on popular thread count myths and tips for customers shopping for luxury Egyptian cotton sheets.
“Thread count does indeed make a difference,” explains Saunders. “However, high thread count does not necessarily mean the sheets are softer or of higher quality. In our experience, customers often assume 1500 thread count sheets must be ‘better’ than our 400 through 1000 thread count collections because they are more expensive and include a larger number in the product title. In actuality the most appropriate thread count for each shopper has much more to do with personal preference.”
The cotton fibers of high thread count sheets are woven much tighter and are noticeably heavier as a result. “It’s not uncommon to hear that a consumer is surprised by the weight of their sheets if it’s their first time buying authentic high thread count linens,” says Saunders.
“A set of 1500 thread count sheets can weigh upwards of 10 lbs.” Saunders notes a few things you might not already know, but should keep in mind, when shopping for Egyptian cotton sheets:
1. The higher the thread count doesn’t always imply softer sheets. The main differences may be personal preference. Here is a good example: denim jeans have a very high thread count but I personally don't know anyone who would sleep on denim sheets. Two more important factors that factor in to this debate in how sheets are perceived are thread quality and fabric weave.
2. Authentic high thread count sheets will generally last much longer, in both time and washes, than lower quality low thread count sheets. Egyptian cotton sheets soften over time (and through many washes).
3. Ply is often where additional thread count confusion lies. Ply is created by the number of threads entwined in a single thread. Most sheets are single-ply or two-ply. Single-ply sheets are softer to touch and much more durable.
“Understandably, Egyptian cotton sheets command higher prices than lower quality bed linen counterparts. With ExceptionalSheets.com, you’ll notice the difference just by holding the folded set of sheets in your hands,” says Saunders.
By debunking these popular myths about higher thread count and Egyptian cotton sheets, consumers will have a better understanding analyzing quality bedding and won’t get duped when it comes to shopping for luxury bed linens
Now, I don't know about you, but I LOVE soft sheets. I am very particular about them, and so is my husband. I don't like those sheets that feel stiff. What type of sheets do you use? Do you have a preference?
