Thread Count Defined

When so much of your day is spent in bed, you need to have the best sheets. Thread count is often advertised as the be-all and end-all when choosing bed sheets, but this is not necessarily the case.

It’s how the weave is put together which has a big impact on the feel and durability of your sheets. A weave is made up of warp and weft which are the two threads that run up and across the fabric. Typically, the fabric will be one of;

  • Basic weave sheets, tend to also be low thread count and are quite cheap.
  • Sateen sheets are extra soft and have a great choice for durability as they have more warp threads than weft threads.
  • Percale sheets have the same amount of weft and warp threads and have a crisper feel.

Bamboo is stronger than steel by weight. Bamboo 300 thread count is equivalent to feel and yet stronger than 1000 thread count cotton fabrics.

All this considered, Bamboo Haus sheets are a natural choice for comfort.
