When shopping for a new sheet set, chances are you’ve come across the term “thread count”. So, what exactly does that mean, and how do organic bamboo sheets and bamboo pillowcases compare to other materials? Bamboo Haus has the answers.
Bedding Thread Count Basics
Bed sheets and pillowcases are described by thread counts, which is the number of horizontal and vertical threads in each square inch of material. Both adult and baby sheets are labelled with thread counts to give consumers a better idea of how high-quality the material is. Usually, higher thread counts mean greater softness and durability.
If you aren’t satisfied with the value or softness you get from cotton or linen sheets, bamboo bedding is a popular alternative because it’s softer, more eco-friendly and better value for money. The softness of our sheets is due to the sateen weave, meaning our bamboo sheets are equivalent to 1000-thread count cotton. Regardless of the manufacturing process, cotton fibres are much shorter than bamboo fibres.
While you may be able to weave more cotton threads closer together, bamboo fibres are actually naturally longer, smoother and more durable! An organic bamboo sheet set with a thread count of 400 is typically equal to an Egyptian cotton fabric of 1000 thread count. If you’d like to know more about what thread count means when it comes to natural materials like bamboo, feel free to get in touch!

Why are Bamboo Sheets so Naturally Soft?
So, why are bamboo sheets so naturally soft? The answer is that bamboo sheets are just woven differently! The most common weaves you’ll find for bamboo sheets are twill and sateen. A twill weave is tight and short, but a sateen weave is longer, giving our bamboo sheets a silky soft and luxurious feel.
