What’s a Good Thread Count for Sheets?

We’ve spent hundreds of hours scrutinizing and sleeping on dozens of cotton sheet sets, and we know from experience that manufacturers sometimes game the thread counts, doubling the numbers to make their sheets seem more luxurious. According to the many experts we’ve interviewed, really good sheets—the ones that feel soft and wear well after years of use and washing—generally have thread counts ranging from 200 to 600, depending on whether they’re percale or sateen. But honestly, thread count isn’t the most important thing to consider. A lot of other factors—such as the type of cotton and yarns the sheets are made from—are more important in picking a soft, long-wearing set.

We spoke with five experts for this piece, and they all agreed that thread counts are an important indicator of quality sheets, but that you should be suspicious of numbers that are too high or too low. Manufacturers calculate thread count by adding up the vertical warp and horizontal weft yarns in a square inch of fabric. This is what the weave looks like for percale sheets (made with a plain weave) and sateen sheets (made with a satin weave):

Plain weave has the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads evenly alternating. In satin weave the weft threads “float” over several warp threads (usually four) at a time, resulting in smoother and more lustrous fabric.

Preethi Gopinath, director of the Textiles MFA program at Parsons and one of the writers of our cotton sheets guide, and Shannon Maher, chairperson and assistant professor of the Home Products Development department at the Fashion Institute of Technology, both weighed in on the best thread counts for each weave:

Percale

  • Gopinath said a 250 to 300 thread count was optimal (there’s wiggle room, though, as Maher said 200 was also good).
  • Gopinath told us a 400 to 500 thread count for percale could reflect a denser sheet made of fine, good-quality yarns. Over 500 was “not necessary or likely,” she said.
  • Average-quality percale hovers around 180.

Sateen

  • Gopinath and Maher agreed that good-quality sateen sheets ranged from 300 to 600 thread count. The number could creep higher, but this would create a very heavy sheet.
  • Average-quality sateen ranges from about 250 to 300.

Judging from our testing experience, we think those ranges are pretty spot-on. In our cotton sheets guide, our favorite percale set (L.L.Bean’s 280-Thread-Count Pima Cotton Percale Sheet Set) has a 280 thread count. Both of our top sateen recommendations (the JCPenney Home 400 TC Wrinkle Guard Sheet Set from JCPenney and Cuddledown’s 400 Thread Count Cotton Sateen Bedding) are 400 thread count—which, incidentally, Maher noted was her ideal number for sateen.

“Thread count really measures fabric density,” said Missy Tannen, co-founder of Boll & Branch. “Too high of a thread count means that air doesn’t circulate well and you’ll sleep hot. ” Percale thread counts are lower simply because the plain weave allows for fewer threads in a square inch. Gopinath told us this made percale lighter and cooler, which is preferable in hotter temperatures or for hot sleepers. Sateen, with its higher thread counts (that is, more densely packed yarns), tends to be softer but also heavier than percale. A higher thread count is more important for sateen because it reduces the likelihood of snagging the longer floats—the weft yarns that skim across several warp yarns.

Higher-thread-count sheets are made with finer (thinner) yarns. The more yarns that fit into a square inch, the smoother, denser, and more durable the fabric. Fine yarn is also more expensive to produce, thus resulting in pricier sheets (and why densely woven sateen is more expensive than percale). Cheap sheets are made with thicker yarns, resulting in lower thread counts and a rougher feel.

The best yarn is made from long-staple or extra-long-staple (ELS) cotton; longer threads of cotton fiber in each yarn help those alternating warp and weft yarns stay smooth and flat. (You can read a longer explanation of this topic in our post about whether Egyptian-cotton sheets are worth splurging for.) That’s why long-staple cottons, including pima, Supima, and sometimes Egyptian-cotton fabrics are considered more luxurious. Maher also recommended looking for sheets made from combed cotton like our percale upgrade pick, Riley’s Percale Sheet Set; in this process manufacturers comb out debris and too-short fibers from the cotton before spinning it into yarn that can weave into softer, smoother, and more durable fabric.

Higher-thread-count sheets are made with finer (thinner) yarns. The more yarns that fit into a square inch, the smoother, denser, and more durable the fabric.

“When it comes to thread count,” Tannen said, “most people forget that the quality of threads is far more important than the quantity.” Andrés Modak, co-CEO and co-founder of Snowe, noted, “Luxury sheets aren’t simply the result of a high number; first you need the highest quality yarns, expertly woven.

When you see counts above 300 for percale or 600 for sateen, that sometimes means the manufacturers are using ply—the number of single threads twisted together in yarn—to artificially inflate the thread count, namely counting two-ply yarns as two yarns instead of one. That means a 500-thread-count sheet made with two-ply yarns might be advertised as 1,000 thread count. Single-ply yarn is more pliable and lends itself to softer fabrics than those containing multiple plies of yarn. As Maher told us, “This is a marketing effort.” She added that manufacturers raise the number to capture customers’ attention, since people tend to perceive a higher-thread-count sheet as better. In 2005 the Federal Trade Commission issued an opinion (PDF), but not a firm set of rules or guidelines, advising against this practice. But our experts noted that although many manufacturers have stopped, they do still see it happening.

“When it comes to thread count, most people forget that the quality of threads is far more important than the quantity. ” —Missy Tannen, co-founder of Boll & Branch

Even the print on sheets can indicate something about the quality of the fabric. Maher and Gopinath both told us that printed sheets were typically produced on lower-thread-count percale cotton to keep costs down. When manufacturers invest in a higher thread count for sheets, they don’t want to cover up that texture. “You want that to be the selling point,” Gopinath said. Print is “a cheap way of applying pattern,” Gopinath told us, an alternative to actually weaving a design into the fabric, like with a damask or jacquard.

Next time you’re shopping for sheets, instead of agonizing over the thread counts, first decide whether you want percale or sateen, and then stay within the established ranges that we covered above. Focus on the quality of the cotton instead of the thread count. As Vicki Fulop, co-founder and chief communications officer of Brooklinen, told us, “Thread count certainly matters, but it’s not the only thing that matters.

Sateen Vs. Percale Vs. Linen

There’s a wise old adage that says because we spend a third of our lives in bed, we should invest in a great mattress. And if you’ve ever had to stay at a cheap motel or sleep on a hide-a-bed, you know how true that is. Nothing ruins your day like a bad night’s sleep.

But don’t stop with the mattress. There’s another old saying about spoiling a great recipe with cheap ingredients, and the same holds true for your bed. Why buy a great mattress only to cover it in lousy bedding?

With so many options on the market, buying new bed sheets can be a confusing process. Several new bedding companies like Parachute and Brooklinen have countered the crush of cheap, crunchy, mass-produced bedclothes by producing supple, luxurious sheets using high-quality fabrics, often hand made using sustainable practices. But are they worth it?

Here are some things to look for if you’re in the market for new sheets.

Thread Count — Is Higher Really Better?

Despite the amount of eye-catching thread counts available at curiously low prices online and at big box stores, experts agree that a higher thread count does not necessarily translate to a softer, or better quality, sheet.

Thread count refers to the number of woven threads that make up one square inch of sheet fabric, combining horizontal threads (or “weft”) and vertical ones (“warp”). This number ranges from about 150 (often found in inexpensive children’s bedding) up to 1,000 or more in fabrics like satin and silk. But when it comes to cotton, don’t be fooled.

Realistically, only so many threads can fit on a loom. Most experts consider 400 to 600 threads per inch to be ideal — but as a marketing ploy, extra threads are often twisted into the weft, adding to the thread count without actually doing anything to make the fabric softer or stronger. Fact is, as thread count rises, most cotton sheets become more fragile and prone to rips, pills and snags.

Instead, focus on the fabric. Look for sheets made of Combed or extra-long staple Egyptian or Pima (or American-made Supima) cotton. These extra-long cotton fibers are 50 percent longer than those of standard cotton, resulting in a sheet that is softer, stronger and longer-lasting than standard cotton sheets.

Sateen vs. Percale vs. Linen

While thread count can be a misleading gauge of sheets, there’s no question that when it comes to softness and quality the best cotton sheets are either Percale or Sateen. More expensive than standard short-weave cotton sheets, both utilize high-quality long-staple cotton; the difference between Percale and Sateen lies mainly in the type of weave.

A traditional one-yarn-over and one-yarn-under weave, Percale typically features a matte finish and a crisp, cool feel that improves with every wash. Its superior durability means it won’t pill over time. It’s lightweight and breathable, which means it’s perfect for warmer sleepers.

Sateen is the closest thing you can get to satin — without the high cost and fragile nature of that expensive fabric. The one-yarn-under and three-yarn-over weave exposes more thread surface, giving Sateen a silky feel and luxurious sheen. Naturally wrinkle-resistant, Sateen is more tightly woven and therefore typically heavier in weight than Percale, making it ideal for year-round comfort.

More casual and laid back than either Percale or Sateen, strong and breathable Linen — made from the flax stem — is the way to go if you value softness and durability but want a less formal look for your bed. It’s fine for all seasons and for all types of sleepers.

While a variety of sheets are widely available from typical retailers like Kohl’s and Target, a new generation of bedding companies has sought to counter cheap sheets with outlandish thread count claims by introducing high-quality, often handmade and sustainably produced bedclothes. Yes, you’ll pay a premium, but remember: You spend a third of your life in bed.

Sateen

Sateen is the closest thing you can get to satin without having to deal with its high cost and fragility. The one-yarn-under and three-yarn-over weave sateen uses exposes more thread surface, giving it a silky feel and luxurious sheen. Naturally wrinkle-resistant, Sateen is more tightly woven and therefore typically heavier in weight than percale, making it ideal for year-round comfort.

Brooklinen Luxe Core Sheet Set

This sheet set from Brooklinen falls right into the thread count sweet spot at 480. And you can bet it offers that luxurious, luminous finish and silky smooth, soft-to-the-touch feeling sateen sheets are known for. Made from 100 percent long-staple cotton that’s Oeko-Tex certified free of harmful chemicals, you can not only sleep soundly but also with a clean conscience.

If making the bed has ever been a challenge for you, Brooklinen labels each of the sides short and long so you never get it wrong. With a near-perfect five star rating, fans of these Brooklinen sheets note their ability to keep users cool, while also retaining heat to keep them cozy. The balance makes it a great option for couples who prefer different temperatures as they sleep.

While Brooklinen’s strong social media presence might have some shoppers thinking it’s all for show, reviewer Chelsey H., for one, doesn’t think so: “These sheets really are that great,” she writes, “it’s not just good marketing!”

Feather & Stitch Cotton Sheet Set

The fine yarns of long-staple cotton fiber and the sateen weave in these sheets give them a distinct hotel quality feel. Every night, you can slip into a deeper sleep feeling like you’re enjoying a luxurious hotel stay. Not only are these sheets Oeko-Tex certified, but they’ve also earned Oeko-Tex’s Standard 100 Certification, which means that everything from the dyes and fabrics to the hardware like buttons and zippers are tested and verified as free from harmful levels of several hundred substances.

Over four in five Amazon reviews give this set of sheets a five-star rating, and it’s a kids’ bedding bestseller. For the quality, the sheets are incredibly affordable. Few, top-rated sheet sets come in under $100, and this set is nearly half that.

Percale

In terms of looks, percale sheets — a traditional one-yarn-over and one-yarn-under weave — work for more modern and handsome tastes. Contrary to the sheen of sateen, percale features a matte finish and a crisp, cool feel that improves with every wash. Its superior durability means it won’t pill over time, and it’s lightweight and breathable, perfect for warmer sleepers.

Parachute Percale Sheet Set

Made from 100 percent premium, long-staple Egyptian cotton, these classic sheets are “lightweight and durable with a crisp finish.” These breathable sheets will keep you cool all night long and are perfect for anyone who might sweat in their sleep. Not only are the materials high quality (the sheets are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified) but the craftsmanship is too.

Parachute products are made in a family-owned factory in Portugal, and they still honor traditional techniques while using modern technology. The result is a crisp finish that only improves over time, as reviewers can attest.

“This must be my third or fourth set of Parachute sheets in the last five or six years, not because the quality is poor, but because I love them so much, I refuse to use anything else,” Sandra S. writes. “I have this set in a few different colors now, and am so happy with the feel and wear over the years. My favorite is white, so naturally, they get the most use and have warranted a repurchase. These sheets are crisp and cool in the summer and soft and cozy in the colder months. I’ve never been disappointed by anything I’ve ever purchased from Parachute (towels, bath mats, duvets…) and don’t think I’ll be switching any time soon.” 

Percale Simple Stripe Sheet Set

Double-ply fine yarn long-staple cotton keeps these sheets structured but still lightweight and breathable. Designed like hotel sheets, they feature the standard percale one-over, one-under weave design and a 360 thread count. Not only is the cotton of impressive quality, but it’s also ethically sourced.

The sheets are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified, meaning their supply chain meets rigorous ecological and social criteria, and the cotton is fair trade. Unlike many brands, this high-quality sheet set comes with some style too. The damask stripe adds to its luxurious look and feel and the colorways can help make your space unique.

Linen

For more bohemian styles, linen is exactly the material you want. The sheets will be soft and durable, but not wrinkle free, which means a more organic vibe. While you might only wear linen in the spring and summer, linen sheets are fine for all seasons and all types of sleepers.

Sea Me Sheets

Sea Me sheets were designed to embody life by the sea. The site reads, “With lively eyes, with sunburnt hair, bold, impetuous, but at the same time very soft, with a smooth gait, they do not hurry, do not rush, do not run.” The founders found this balance in their 100 percent pure European OEKO-TEK certified linen.

It keeps you cool during the summer months and warm during the winter months so you can use the same sheets year-round, while the distressed texture stimulates blood-flow and promotes relaxation. While the complaint with most linen sheets is the initial rough feel of the fabric, you won’t have to worry about that with this set. Reviews say they arrive with that lived-in feel.

Casper Airy Linen

After making a name for themselves in the mattress world, Casper came out with fan-favorite sheets as well. Made from 100 percent Belgian flax linen, sleepers can avoid any discomfort that might come with the first night’s sleep on linen sheets — these arrive pre-washed so your first night can be just as soft as every other. Quality features don’t stop there: Securing snaps, visual cues and grippy elastic helps you to make the bed, and ensure the sheet stays in place, avoiding any middle-of-the-night discomfort.

The Best Thread Count For Sheets

When shopping for bedding, the best thread count for sheets is supposed to be a main deciding factor — but with all of the different types of weaves, fabrics, and manufacturing processes to consider, it’s often hard to discern what all of it really means. If finding the best thread count is your overall goal, it’s important to get a full grasp of the term and how it applies to different fibers. For some materials, thread count doesn’t matter at all; instead, manufacturers use weight to determine quality.

Essentially, the term “thread count” refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. Sheets with a higher thread count generally tend to be softer and more durable. However, you may be surprised to learn that a higher count doesn’t always equate to better quality. In other words, thread count can be important, but there are several other factors in the equation.

To gain a full understanding of thread count, it’s imperative to know that sheets with a higher thread count are made with thinner yarns, meaning that more yarns can fit into each square inch. This not only makes the fabric smoother and more durable, but it also makes it more expensive. Alternatively, if thicker fibers were used to manufacture bed sheets at a high thread count, the fabric would be much rougher than those made with finer materials. For that reason, when it comes to bedding made with more robust fibers, a lower thread count is a more desirable option in terms of comfort.

When determining which thread count is best for you, first consider the material the sheets are made from. The most common fiber used for bed sheets is cotton, with the three main varieties being American Upland, Pima, and Egyptian. There are also other fabrics such as linen, silk, and bamboo, which have become more popular bedding choices over the years, but some of these don’t even use thread count. Flannel and linen are typically measured by grams per square meter, while silk is measured in mommes. Once you pinpoint your fabric of choice, next examine the way the sheets are woven. Oxford, percale, and sateen are some of the more popular weaves, and they’ll heavily impact the feel of your sheets.

In summary, it’s really a matter of quality over the quantity when shopping for bedding. Now that you have the basics, take a look at the best sheet options (and their respective thread counts) for each main category.

1

The Most Affordable: American Upland Cotton, 400 Thread Count

American Upland is the most widely-used cotton when it comes to bed sheets. As a general note, if a label says that they are made from only 100-percent cotton, they are typically comprised of American Upland. This type of sheet tends to be a bit rougher than those made of other varieties of cotton due to their short fibers. However, they are typically the most standard and affordable, meaning that they fit almost any budget and are among the easiest to find.

With a 400 thread count, Pizuna cotton sheets are both breathable and durable, making them comfortable and easy to care for. They do a great job of balancing your temperature while sleeping which will help to keep you cool during summer and warm during winters.

  • Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king

2

The Most Low-Maintenance: Pima, 500 Thread Count

Pima, also known by the trademarked name Supima, is a fine cotton with a very soft weave. These sheets are much less likely to pill when compared to upland cotton due to their longer fibers. Considered a prime fabric for bedding, the average thread count for a set of 100-percent Pima cotton sheets typically hovers between 400 to 600, with premium brands edging a little higher.

Auraa comfort sheets feature a 500 thread count, making them a soft, comfy, and extremely low-maintenance option for bedding. This four piece set comes in a wide variety of colors and features a fitted sheet with pockets deep enough to accommodate both deep and pillow-top mattresses.

  • Available sizes: full, queen, king, California king

3

The Most Luxurious: Egyptian Cotton, 800 Thread Count

Of the main varieties of cotton used for sheets, Egyptian cotton is often considered the finest and most luxurious. Thanks to its longer, silkier fibers, Egyptian cotton produces sheets that are incredibly soft, yet strong at the same time. Optimal thread counts tend to range somewhere between 400 to 700, with premium brands climbing into the 1000s.

With an 800 thread count, Mayfair Linen Egyptian cotton sheets are not only high in quality, but they’re also soft, strong, and resistant to pilling. The fine fabric used to make these sheets is both hypoallergenic and breathable, making them perfect for people who tend to sleep hot.

  • Available sizes: twin, full, queen, king, California king

4

The Warmest: Flannel, 160 GSM

Flannel sheets are made from cotton fibers with a brushed nap. They are typically heavy and somewhat fuzzy, which makes them a great choice for colder temperatures. When it comes to quality, flannel ditches the thread count method and is instead measured by the weight of the flannel: GSM (grams per square meter) or ounces per square yard. The higher the GSM (or ounces), the warmer the sheets.

Stone & Beam’s rustic cotton flannel sheets will keep you cozy while remaining both soft and gentle on your skin. The four-piece set is offered in a variety of neutral colors and can be easily stored away in its accompanying reusable cloth drawstring bag. It weighs in at 160 GSMs, which means it’s warm and cozy, but still lightweight enough for year-round use.

  • Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king

5

Luxurious But Budget-Friendly: Sateen, 500 Thread Count

Sateen sheets are known for their luster and drape, making them one of the more popular choices with it comes to luxurious but affordable bedding finishes. They utilize cotton fibers, but the weave is really what makes the difference here.

Not only are they long-lasting, but fabrics with a sateen weave tend to be very silky and comfortable, getting softer with each and every wash. A good-quality sateen sheet should range from 300 to 600 thread-count with an average set falling somewhere between 250 to 300.

Made with long-staple Pima cotton and boasting a 500 thread count, Isabella Cromwell’s pure sateen weave sheets get better with every wash. The four-piece set comes in a large variety of colors and features a fitted sheet with deep pockets to fit mattresses from 9 to 18 inches.

  • Available sizes: twin, full, queen, king, California king

6

For A Crisp, Clean Feel: Percale, 350 Thread Count

If you love the feeling of getting into crisp, freshly-washed sheets, this is the weave for you. Percale is a tightly-woven and highly-durable finish that can often be distinguished by its matte look and crisp characteristics.

Although this type is also made from cotton, percale sheets are lighter in weight and more breathable, which makes them a good choice for warmer weather. Due to the use of thinner yarns, a high-quality thread count for percale bedding would range somewhere between 250 and 300, while an average-quality set should tally around a 180 count.

These Tribeca Living bed sheets are made with Egyptian cotton, tightly woven with in a percale finish which gives a crisp and smooth feel. The 350-thread-count set also offers the benefit of an oversized flat sheet along with a 23-inch deep pocket, so it’s easy to tuck neatly under thicker mattresses.

  • Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king

7

The Most Versatile: Combed Cotton, 500 Thread Count

Combing is a type of manufacturing practice that is often used for sheets. Sets are “combed” to remove debris and short fibers before spinning it into yarns. As a result, this type gives you a bit of everything: softness, durability, and a breathable feel. When combined with a sateen weave (like the sheets featured here), you’ll also get a silky, luxurious finish.

With a 500 thread count, California Design Den’s combed cotton sheets are made to provide comfort and breathability while remaining durable wash after wash. The set’s deep pocket fitted sheet features all-around elastic and is flexible enough to fit both low and high mattress profiles.

  • Available sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king

8

The Softest: Silk, 600 Thread Count And 19 Momme

Silk is an all-natural material made by the larvae of silkworms and is often seen as an opulent and luxurious option when it comes to bedding. The production of silk sheets requires a lot of care and time (making it one of the most expensive options available), and the fabric is not always as durable when it comes to laundering. However, it is unmatched in its lush look and feel.

When shopping for silk sheets, it’s most important to understand the terminology. Mulberry is the highest quality of silk available because it’s produced by worms that feed solely from mulberry leaves, while Charmeuse is a weaving technique that creates a smooth, shiny finish on one side and a dull one on the other.

With silk, “momme” is generally considered much more important than thread count. The term momme refers to the weight of the silk per 100 yards with a range that typically spans between 6 to 30. The higher the momme, the more dense and opaque the silk. When it comes to sheets, 19 momme is considered an optimal number when factoring in strength, quality, and affordability.

Zimasilk’s 100-percent Mulberry silk sheets have a momme of 19 and a thread count of 600, which makes them both a soft and comfortable option. While they are extremely delicate on both your hair and skin, it’s important to know that they, too, require a lot of care. They must be machine-washed sparingly in a mesh bag to avoid pulling and naturally air dried in the shade, as sun exposure can cause damage to their color.

  • Available sizes: queen, king

The Most Breathable: Linen, 160 GSM

Linen sheets are airy, light, and more breathable than cotton, which makes them a popular choice for warmer climates. When it comes to the thread count of linen bedding, the range is much lower in comparison to cotton due to its thick flax fibers. As a result, numbers hover somewhere between 80 and 150 — but most manufacturers won’t even disclose thread count for this material, because it’s essentially meaningless. Instead, the quality of the flax fibers and the GSM (grams per square meter) are the most telling. Most people consider European flax and a GSM of around 160 to be a great option.

The 100-percent natural flax used to make Len Linum’s linen sheet set is exceptionally cooling, breathable, and absorbent. It’s also skin-friendly and has a GSM of 160, which reviewers say is a “nice weight, not too heavy” but still a “very durable fabric.”

10

The Best For Temperature-Regulation: Bamboo, 300 Thread Count

Thanks to their eco-friendly composition, bamboo sheets have grown in popularity in recent years. Due to its lightweight feel and optimal absorbency, the natural fabric creates more breathability and better temperature regulation while sleeping. An average set of bamboo sheets typically has a thread count somewhere between 250 and 350, although the number can sometimes edge much higher.

Pure Bamboo’s 300 thread-count sheets are breathable and moisture-wicking for maximum nighttime comfort. Crafted with 100-percent bamboo viscose, these sheets will help to keep you cool during warmer weather, while keeping you just as cozy when the temperature drops. With their natural fibers, they are also a great choice for sensitive skin.

Luxury Bamboo Bedding. Finest 500 Count Bamboo Sheets.

Review:

This review is long overdue. I started with the 320 thread sheets and swore I wold never go back to cotton. Last year when the company upgraded the Ultra 500 I decided to try them out. Well they are soft, generous in top sheet overhang and I will not sleep on anything else. The drape of the sheet with its softness envelopes you. I am so pleased I found Van and Luxury Bamboo Bedding. Their service, shipping and product are exceptional. I highly recommend the Ultra 500 the slightly higher cost is well worth it.

I purchased one set of king sheets and could not believe how soft they were even after only 1 wash. They have become even more luxurious over time which led me to purchasing 2 more sets. After several failed attempts with other companies to find a soft and silky sheet, I have finally found the only sheets that I will ever buy. Don’t waste your money trying others. You won’t be disappointed.

I recently purchased sheets from Luxury Bamboo Bedding. It was a joy to deal with you, so easy, quick and accommodating. I have a Kings Down mattress and box spring that are very thick. We have had trouble even finding sheets that fit. Well, you solved my problems by making custom corners for me with 23 inch pockets. Never again will my sheets pull off at the corners which use to happen every night. In addition, these Bamboo 500 Thread Count sheets are by far the softest I have ever slept on. These Bamboo sheets make Egyptian cotton sheets feel like sandpaper. My wife and I love them so much, just yesterday we ordered another set. Thank you for introducing us to Bamboo sheets. We will never sleep on any other sheet again.

Have a great day!

Van I talked to you twice yesterday about the detergent that is recommended for the bamboo sheets. Thank you for spending the time with me on the phone. I appreciated the customer service. After 1-night of sleeping on my new sheets, I can tell you…I LOVE THEM! I originally purchased a set for my daughter for Christmas (2017). I was having a hard time finding something for her and she commented she wanted a new set of sheets. Instead of going to Bed Bath & Beyond I decided to try something new and purchase Bamboo sheets. Little did I know that my daughter would end up loving them. It inspired me to finally make a purchase for myself.
I mentioned to you that I have an RV with a king sized foam mattress. RV mattresses dont measure out the same as usual king mattresses for the home. They are slightly smaller. You offered to make me a set for my RV as long as I provided you with the correct measurements. I think I am going to take you up on that offer! However my RV is in the shop for warranty work so I do not have access to it to get you the measurements. I will as soon as I am able. I am thinking that the top flat sheet I have will work great for the RV king. It is not as deep as my home king mattress. So if I could get a fitted sheet that will work for my RV king mattress and then get a wider flat sheet made for my home king mattress that will take care of both issues. I am hoping that you will be able to do this for me. Please let me know if this is possible. Thank you again for your help.

Hi Sonia & Van, Thank You for your great customer service. The bar of soap was a wonderful surprise!! I really can’t wait to use it!! My Husband is really going to LOVE these sheets. He is VERY picky with his sheets…..if they are not soft enough he breaks out in welts. I have spent $$$$ trying to find the perfect sheets for him. I don’t think I will wait for Valentine’s Day to put them on the bed for him. Sunshine Days Sydney

I purchased my bedding at Luxury Bamboo Bedding about one year ago. I absolutely adore their bamboo sheets, there is nothing like them anywhere. They are softer than anything you could imagine, even silk, they wick away moisture, never ever pill, wash without ever shrinking and wear like iron. I’ve recommended them to everyone I know! Please never stop making it!

I purchased two sets of 500 count Luxury Bamboo sheets. These sheets are soft and absorb body oils without the need to wash every 3 days. They are cool to the skin and I have less allergic response than to other sheets. They are softer than my 1000 count sheets, softer than my highest brand ($2000) Egyptian sheets. I also bought the Bamboo towels which are softer and more absorbent than my expensive Egyptians.

I found this website while looking for bamboo sheets. I have bamboo towels and absolutely love them! Knew of another brand of sheets but went looking anyway and I am thrilled I did. I purchased the 500 thread count set. Yes they are scary when wet, but it is amazing the way they soften in the dryer. For spring and summer I plan to have them on the forefront; no bedspread for me. I will show off the sheets with just a summer blanket folded down at the foot of the bed and maybe even the silk duvet!

Buying guide: The truth about thread count

Is there anything better than sliding into a bed laden with good quality sheets? At the end of the day, I can’t wait to stretch out under my fresh, soft covers and nestle my face into a good cotton-covered pillow. We spend a third of our lives in bed so quality sheets are key, but how do you get quality for your money? There’s no doubt that most consumers believe the higher the thread count, the better the quality, but this isn’t entirely true. With the help and expertise of Joanna Goodman, owner of Au Lit Fine Linens, we expose the truth about thread count and what it takes to find quality bed sheets.

 

What is thread count, really?

Simply put, thread count is the number of threads woven into one square inch of fabric. This number is based on the threads woven horizontally (“weft”) and vertically (“warp”). Extra threads can also be woven into the weft threads to increase the thread count. These added threads are called “picks” and are added in the overall count, which is how some sheets end up having thread counts in the thousands. This is why the idea that high counts equal better quality isn’t really accurate. Consider this: Joanna says most weavers will say the maximum number of threads that can be woven into one square inch of fabric is 500 to 600. Though the number is arguable and, according to Joanna, “depends on the mill you deal with,” it gives you an idea of where the line is between single-ply, unpicked weaves and ones that add threads here and there to bump up the count.

 

What to look for when buying sheets

Joanna lists three things to look for on the label: if it’s Egyptian cotton, where it’s woven and, lastly, the thread count. While thread count is a bit misunderstood, the buzz around Egyptian cotton is true. “The very best cotton in the world is grown in Egypt. So Egyptian cotton will be of a better quality,” Joanna says. She also recommends pima cotton, which is grown in America, “though not quite as exceptional as Egyptian.” When it comes to weaving, however, she swears by the Italians as being the “master weavers of the world” due to their “long tradition of weaving” and use of the best Egyptian cotton. Be sure the label says 100% or pure Egyptian cotton though, otherwise it may only contain a small percentage of the good stuff. As for the thread count, look for a minimum of 200. From there, it’s all about preference!

 


 

What to avoid when buying sheets

Joanna’s one key piece of advice is to watch out for extremely low priced, high thread count sheet sets. A complete sheet set with a high thread count for $100 or less is probably not the dream bargain you think it is. As Joanna believes, “you always get what you pay for.” The price tag for bed linens will vary depending on the sheet size and what items you’re buying, such as a duvet cover, sheet sets, or pillowcases. “A superior quality 200 thread count queen set (including flat, fitted, two pillowcases), made of Egyptian cotton and woven in Europe, could retail reasonably for about $150-$250,” says Joanna.

 


 

What do you prefer?

After going through the quality checklist, go with what feels best for you. If you’re looking for a durable linen, Joanna recommends any percale from thread count 200 to 800. Percale is any cotton woven with a 200 thread count or higher and will be more durable than a cotton satin of the same thread count. It’s also less likely to pill than cotton satin because it has a denser weave. Love the feel of a cotton button down shirt? Joanna advises a crisp, dense 200 thread count percale. Prefer a silkier sheet? Go for a 300 to 600 cotton satin. If you want lighter sheets, Joanna says, a 400 thread count sheet can be soft and light, while an 800 percale would be soft and dense. The higher the thread count, the more likely multiple-ply thread is used or picks are added, making the fabric denser and heavier.

 

Now you know that quality is not just about the number, so don’t let numbers rule your bed! Remember what to look for on the label and be wary of too-low prices for supposedly high quality items. Beyond that, go with what you prefer. Get a good feel of the sheets before buying. Whether you’re unzipping the packaging or lying down on a display bed, make sure the fabric feels good against your skin and soon you’ll be having sweet dreams!

90,000 What density should bed linen have? Choose from 12 fabrics

The material for sewing bed linen has a different density, which depends on the weaving method, the location of the fibers, the number and thickness of the threads. This indicator determines the consumer properties of textile products: air permeability, hygroscopicity, resistance to wear and deformation.

What is the density of bedding

When choosing a set of bedding, it is recommended to pay attention to the density parameters, which characterize the durability and strength of the product.This value is regulated by the standards developed for each type of fabric. The density of the fabric is classified into two types:

  • linear – determined by the number of threads in 1 cm² for Russian standards and in decimeters for world standards;
  • surface – the number of grams per 1 m².

Linear Density

The ratio of the density of the warp and weft threads determines the shape of the material cell, which characterizes its elasticity in the transverse and lobar directions, as well as strength.The thickness of the fabric depends on the thickness of the threads. Linear or relative density – the ratio of the number of warp fibers to the number of threads on a piece of fabric of a certain length at maximum filling.

The density classification of textiles is formed taking into account the number of threads per 1 cm²:

  • low: 20-35 threads – cambric;
  • medium-low: 36-50 threads – all types of coarse calico;
  • medium: 51-64 threads – cotton, standard linen;
  • medium-high: 65-94 threads – ranfors, Turkish silk, flax analogues;
  • high: 95-200 threads – satin, poplin;
  • very high: 200-280 threads – jacquard, satin gloss, percale, Japanese silk.

Areal density

The ratio of tissue mass to unit area determines the surface density of the tissue. This parameter is measured in square meters, and weight in grams. The grammage or the number of grams per m² of fabric determines the surface density. The following conditions are of great importance for the surface density: the way of weaving, twisting and adherence of the threads. According to the wear resistance tables, the density rate is:

  • cotton fabrics: 110-150 g / m²;
  • satin weave fabric: 110-220, 220-250, more than 250 g / m².

The manufacturer indicates the surface density indicator on a roll of material or in an information block on the bed linen label. According to GOST and TU of the enterprise, not only the surface density is set, but also the permissible deviation percentage in the roll and batch. If the actual figure is more than 5%, then the material is considered a scrap. For a high-quality bedding set, the declared density should exceed the parameters of 110 g / m².

Densities of various materials

A quality bedding set is one of the universal gifts for people who value comfort and coziness.Products made of high-density fabric and natural composition, such as linen, bamboo, satin, are considered more durable, safe and visually attractive.

Coarse calico

According to Russian state standards, coarse calico is 100% cotton. Bed linen is sewn from fabric, which is made from thick threads with a plain cross-weave. The quality of the material determines the thickness of the fibers: the thinner it is, the higher the density of the fabric. Low density coarse calico (80 g / m²) is called thin coarse calico.Average density parameters are 90-110 g / m². High-quality coarse calico bedding sets have a good density of 110-125 g / m², they are inexpensive and practical, soft and elastic. Railway organizations and medical institutions use high-density coarse calico bedding sets 130-160 g / m².

Coarse calico ranfors

The surface density of the coarse calico ranforce, which is 100% cotton thread, is 120 g / m². For the manufacture of premium material, fibers of the best grades are selected.In the process of spinning, they are in close contact with each other, the surface of the fabric is not fluffy, delicate and even. Due to its high linear density, the coarse calico ranforce acquires durability and special strength. After high-tech processing and application of mercerization technology, the fabric acquires universal properties: high strength, gloss, hygroscopicity, pliability of paint absorption. Lingerie made of calico ranforce is distinguished by its bright colors, silky sheen, elasticity, strength, softness and density.

Percale

The fabric visually resembles poplin, the front side of the percale is brighter and shinier than the wrong side. Smooth, wear-resistant material is made from long-staple cotton, with a plain weave. The untwisted fibers are of the same length, which makes the fabric resistant to abrasion (up to 1000 washes), high temperature and smoothness. Processing of fibers with a special composition protects against the formation of pellets, stretch marks, folds.Bedding sets made of hypoallergenic percale do not electrify, they are used for children and people suffering from pulmonary or skin diseases.

Biomatin

Biomatin refers to cotton-based fabrics, the fibers of which are impregnated using a special technology with hypoallergenic compounds. The density of the material does not exceed 120 g / m², in terms of tactile perception it is similar to the Premium class coarse calico. The properties of the fabric make it suitable for sewing baby bedding sets and sets for people with sensitive skin.

Poplin

In the manufacture of poplin, plain weaving of threads is used, similar to coarse calico, while the fibers differ in thickness. A thinner thread makes up the warp, thicker one is chosen for a weft. Small scars are clearly visible on the surface of the fabric. The average density of poplin is 110-120 g / m². There are more scars in poplin than in coarse calico; in terms of softness, it is comparable to Premium coarse calico.When choosing a manufacturer, one should give preference to Russian companies, Russian poplin is well known and popular in many countries of the world.

Satin

In the production of satin, the technology of twill weaving of double-twisted threads is used. Weft threads predominate on the silky and smooth front surface of the fabric, which is shiny and quite dense. The twisted threads are very shiny, the fabric looks like silk. On the seamy side, satin is a little fuzzy, matte, tactilely reminiscent of flannel.The density of the classic standard satin is 115-120 g / m². In the production of De Luxe satin, the technology of active dyeing is used, the density of the material is 130 g / m².

Satin-jacquard

Thanks to the use of a special method of weaving of threads, a satin-jacquard fabric with a relief pattern is obtained. Bed sets absorb moisture well, are pleasant and soft to the touch, do not accumulate static electricity, and have a presentable appearance.Good density of satin-jacquard is characterized by indicators of 135-140 g / m².

Mako

The density of the fabric made from Egyptian cotton is 220 g / m². The appearance of mako, expensive and high quality satin, resembles silk. To apply the pattern, reactive dyes are used, which become part of the fibers, do not fade under the influence of UV rays and are resistant to washing. Together with the dye, satin mako acquires elasticity, softness to the touch, fine texture.

Silk

The homeland of natural silk is Ancient China, but the most exquisite is the fabric from Japan, handcrafted in family businesses. Today, about 500 types of silk are produced in Japan and 4 at European enterprises. The density of silk is measured in Mommi (mm). The higher this indicator, the denser the material. The density value varies in the range of 6-30 mm; for sewing bedding sets, fabric with a density of 16-21 mm is used. In world practice, the indicator of optimal density is 19mm.

Linen

Environmentally friendly, unpainted linen linen is in great demand among buyers of bed linen. During cultivation, flax is not treated with pesticides. The beauty of the canvas lies in its natural color, in which all shades of ivory are found. Hypoallergenic undyed tissue has a beneficial effect on the skin, excludes the multiplication of pathogenic bacteria and microbes. Bedding sets are easy to wash, cool in the summer heat, dry quickly.The density index of linen fabric is 125-150 g / m². A set of pure linen is expensive, alternatively you can choose a mixed material: 70% cotton, 30% linen.

Bamboo

Bamboo sets are distinguished by iridescent shine and silkiness. Bamboo linen absorbs odors, dries quickly, hygroscopic, has antibacterial properties. When caring for the kit, you should follow a number of rules: wash with powder for colored fabrics, do not use bleach, wring out by hand, do not use the “drying” mode in the washing machine.

Tencel

Wood pulp obtained from eucalyptus is used as a raw material for the production of silky tencel linen. Soft, eco-friendly, hypoallergenic material has bacteriostatic properties. Tencel bedding is chosen by people with sensitive skin. The fabric quickly absorbs moisture, adapts to the temperature regime, does not delay the passage of air. Product care is not easy: only liquid detergents are suitable for washing, store in a well-ventilated area, avoid direct UV rays, iron from the wrong side.

Conditions for choosing the density of bed linen

The density index for bed linen is taken into account depending on the purpose of the set. For children and people with allergic diseases, medium and low density kits are preferred. The soft and delicate fabric allows air to pass through and provides pleasant tactile sensations.

For everyday use, it is recommended to choose sets of dense and durable fabric.Bed sets are resistant to wear and tear, regular washings, and retain their color when exposed to sunlight. A great gift for a wedding will be a bedding set made of natural, environmentally friendly fabric.

How to choose the right bed linen – Look At Me

The bed is an integral part of our life, a third to be precise.Bed linen is an integral part of the bed. We spend a third of our lives in our bed, wrapped in bedding. And since this is such a necessary thing for us, then we must know how to choose it correctly.

Of course, in general, this is an individual process, but getting lost in the variety of fabrics is not so difficult. There are cool silk, terry bedspreads, fur blankets and natural cotton fabrics.

Cloth. This is the most important thing when choosing a good bed linen, the first thing to start with the choice, and only then the color, equipment and pattern.

Interlacing of threads. It directly affects the strength of the fabric. Manufacturers write this characteristic on the packaging. And the more threads are intertwined in 1 square centimeter of fabric, the longer the linen will last.
Experts believe that the density should not be lower than 60 threads / sq cm. At the same time, there are especially high-quality fabrics with a density of up to 500 threads, which significantly affects their cost.

Painting. To determine if the laundry will shed after several washes, you need to look at the inside.If the front and back sides are clearly expressed, then the color will most likely not last for a long time.

You also need to pay attention to the smell, it should not be chemical.
The label will tell us a lot about dyes – if it says that it can be washed at 60 degrees, then the dye is stable.

Thread. Another indicator of a well-tailored set is the presence of a linen seam. If it is not there, the laundry will not endure many washings.

Dimensions. Before choosing, find out the size of your: mattress, blanket and pillows. Please note that the EURO package may include 4 or 2 pillowcases. Some manufacturers or sell 2 additional pillowcases.

You should also read that at the very first wash, bed linen can “shrink” by 3-5%, mainly for linen and cotton.

Cotton. And of course naturalness! It is natural fabrics that should be preferred, they absorb moisture well and do not irritate the skin.

There are many cotton fabrics with different weaves, these are: ranfors, cambric, chintz, flannel, satin and of course satinjacquard.
Ranfors is a practical fabric that does not require delicate care, a rather inexpensive fabric, but loses its properties to satin and jacquard.
Satin – this fabric is woven from a highly twisted thread, which allows you to achieve a high density. satin fabric shines a little, resembling silk and is pleasant to the touch. It is more expensive than other fabrics, but cheaper than silk.Among cotton fabrics, satin is the best choice.

Jacquard is a fabric with embroidery on a jacquard machine, it is made from selected cotton. There are differences between jacquard fabrics: the first is often called satin with embroidery, since the embroidery is applied only in a few places. The second type is classic jacquard, embroidery is applied all over the canvas with silk thread, which, in addition to the royal look, gives a pleasant tactile sensation. The third type (black tapestry) is distinguished by the application of embroidery in several layers, which allows you to create three-dimensional patterns.

Several care instructions

– Before use, be sure to wash the bed linen inside out.

– Natural and artificial fabrics need to be washed separately

– the optimal washing temperature is 50-60C, but it is better to check the label

– To wash silk clothes you need to use a delicate wash and spin at a minimum speed

Sweet dreams!

Cotton bed linen – “one of the cleanest in the world!”

Cotton is a highly hygienic fiber.It is the most common bedding material. It is much cheaper than silk and more practical than linen. Cotton is used to make chintz, cambric, calico, satin and many other fabrics that are used in the production of bed linen. They differ from each other in density (durability) and texture.

About cotton bed linen

Cotton is known as a natural, highly durable material. If the label says “100% cotton”, it means that the fabric does not contain any additives.This material perfectly absorbs moisture, breathes well, does not stick to the body, does not shock, does not slip, is comfortable at any time of the year: it keeps warm in winter, does not make the body sweat in summer. Connoisseurs of natural fabrics are sure that cotton is the ideal fabric for bedding, because it is “one of the purest fibers in the world”. Since cotton fibers are 90% cellulose, the material, as previously noted, is highly hydrophilic. Cotton, like all other fabrics, of course, gets dirty, but it is very easy to wash off even with a hand wash.In addition, cotton fabrics are so strong that they do not deteriorate even after boiling with various powders of high concentration. Ironing cotton bed linen is recommended using steam. And the purest fiber is not threatened to be eaten by moths, since cotton belongs to “indigestible” materials.

A bit of history

Cotton is not only the purest, but also one of the oldest natural fibers on earth. Its history begins twelve thousand years BC.The Egyptians were the first to use cotton. They knew how to make fabrics of the highest quality, in no way inferior to the current ones. So, the mummies of the Egyptian pharaohs of that time were wrapped in a cloth with a density of more than 500 threads per inch. But excellent English fabrics of this type these days have an average density of 350 threads per inch.

It is also known that one of the first mass-produced cotton began to be grown in India. According to Indian beliefs, cotton is a holy gift from heaven. Even the texts of ancient songs of the Indians, singing the fine threads of which the canvas is made, have been preserved.Fragments of cotton fabric and ropes made from this material have been re-found in recent excavations in Pakistan. There they found cotton seeds, which turned out to be 9 thousand years old.

Cotton appeared in Europe only around 350 BC. It was first brought from Asia Minor to Greece. Subsequently, the cotton culture has successfully spread to northern Africa, Spain and southern Italy.

Interesting fact

“The cost of a piece of fabric in ancient times was estimated by the number of gold coins equal to its weight.Therefore, in Babylon, cotton was called “white gold.” It is not surprising that since then there has been a belief that seeing cotton in a dream is a good luck in business. ”

Basic properties of cotton

  1. Hygiene.
  2. Resistant to alkali (washing).
  3. Good air permeability.
  4. High hydrophilicity.
  5. Does not stick to the body.
  6. Does not shock.
  7. Does not slip.
  8. Nice to the touch.
  9. Durability.
  10. Cotton fabric stays bright for a long time.
  11. If you compare cotton with other plant fibers, you will notice that cotton fabrics warm up better than, for example, silk or linen.
  12. Cotton bed linen washable easily.

Cotton fabric is suitable for any room design, it is safe, reliable, durable (will last at least 5-7 years) and, most importantly, natural.If you buy cotton bed linen, you can be sure that it can be washed perfectly: it can be boiled, and when washing with a fabric softener, the cotton fabric does not need to be ironed.

Basic characteristics of fabrics

The owners of restaurants and cafes, hotels and health centers often have to buy textiles for their business.But not all purchases can be considered successful. It is easy to get confused in the colossal assortment of fabrics available on the modern market. It would seem that seemingly practical and durable matter actually deforms quickly or loses color.

Fabrics have different purposes, so each of them has corresponding consumer requirements. For example, underwear, which, first of all, must have excellent hygienic properties: breathability, hygroscopicity, the ability to absorb moisture and steam.Consumer properties determine the future qualities of the fabric, which are controlled during its development and production.

To choose the right fabric that will last reliably and for a long time, you need to have some idea about its properties. Let’s consider the main ones.

ΠAs you know, any fabric has its characteristic thread thickness, measured in Tex. Tex is a unit of linear density (g / km) that determines the weight of 1 kilometer of thread. In the metric system, thread number (m / y) is more often used.So, one gram of yarn with a length of 10m has No. 10, a gram of yarn with a length of 20m has No. 20, and so on. The higher the number, the thinner the thread and vice versa.

In addition, fabrics have different densities, measured in thread count (TC). Density is the number of threads (warp and weft) per 10 cm2 of fabric. For example, satin – 60/40 (173/120) means that 60 is the thickness of the thread at the warp, and 40 is the thickness at the weft. It also contains 173 warp threads and 120 weft threads. And the total density of the sample is 10 sq.cm is 173 + 120 = 293 TC, this is the value of thread count .

Ž Each fabric has its own structure, more precisely seven types of weave threads.

Plain (plain) weave linen (fabrics such as teak, percale, calico, GOST coarse calico, linen polycotton) twill , satin (fabrics such as satin, bleached satin, satin striped, satin jacquard, satin stripe, satin stripe, satin polycotton, satin white, satin jacquard, bleached satin, satin stripe, satin patterns, (or satin) fabrics

Special – for crepe, fine-grained fabrics (or canvas)

Combined (or compound) weaving is inherent in multi-colored fabrics (in a cage, stripes, squares)

Jacquard combines simple and complex large-patterned weaving: satin jacquard, satin jacquard, satin striped

Double-layer weaving creates two separate fabrics, superimposed on each other and held together by a thread of one of the layers or a separate warp (weft) thread.It is typical for durable and heat-insulating fine-woolen fabrics (drape, several types of silk).

Pile weave have velveteen and semi-velvet (on the weft), as well as plush and velvet (on the basis).

Weave with finished edge called hem .

Determining the texture of the fabric, it is easy to distinguish the right side from the wrong side. The front or right side is visually more elegant, with a distinct pattern and more contrasting colors.

Depending on the purpose of a particular fabric, you should choose a suitable composition or type of raw material from which it is created. Both natural and chemical raw materials are used for the production of fabric.

Classic natural fabrics by origin are vegetable (linen, cotton, hemp, jute), animals (natural silk, wool) and mineral (asbestos, awn).

Artificial fabrics can be based on organic (cellulose, proteins) and inorganic (glass, metals) natural substances.This group is made up of acetate, viscose, lurex and metallic threads. Certain types of chemical fabrics are produced from synthetic polymers , such as: polyamide (dederon, silon and hemlon), polyester (diolen, tesil, slotera, microfiber), polypropylene and polyvinyl (cashmilon, dralon).

Lingerie for hotels is most often used with cotton fabrics or fabrics based on pollycotone.

When choosing fabrics, of course, they pay great attention to color .Modern industry produces monochromatic one-color fabrics (white, colored, harsh fabric) and multi-colored types – printed, mélange, mulled, multi-colored.

‘And in conclusion, it should be noted that there are fabrics with a special texture and specific properties that meet certain consumer requirements. They can be highly durable, do not need ironing, do not get wet, etc.

Each fabric has a special set of properties inherent only to it.This is how they differ from each other. The characteristics of the fabric determine its main consumer purpose. Knowing these features, it is not difficult to choose the material that will meet the needs of your business.

What are the main properties of fabrics that need to be considered first of all?

Air Permeability indicates the degree of air permeability.

Hygroscopicity determines the absorption of water vapor by the fabric and the ability to retain it.

Water resistance – resistance to getting wet.

Capillarity – moisture absorption level.

Water vapor permeability reflects the degree of water vapor penetration.

Crease – resistance to wrinkling during deformation.

Electrification – the ability of a fabric to accumulate a static charge, which is easily eliminated by antistatic agents.

Thermal protection – the degree of thermal insulation of the fabric.

Dust holding capacity – “absorption” of dust from the air.

To improve the quality and stability of many fabrics, they are mercerized , treated with concentrated caustic , and then rinsed in hot and cold water. This slows down fabric fading, increases strength and hygroscopicity, and gives the surface a silky shine. Bed linen for hotels is most often mercerized or Jet processed.

To apply specific patterns for a specific purpose to white or dyed fabrics, often resort to printing .A direct print is applied to light or bleached fabric, an etched print is applied to a dyed base, and a backup print is applied to unpainted fabric.

Bed linen for hotels are always distinguished by their strength and durability, as they require constant use and a long service life.

Now, knowing the main characteristics of fabrics, it will be easier for you to navigate a wide variety of offers from your suppliers.

The density of the material in bedding does not determine its quality

In many articles on choosing bedding, we see advice to pay attention to the number of threads per square inch – that is, the density of the material from which it is sewn.In fact, everything is not so simple: the high density of bed linen does not yet guarantee its quality.

An indicator such as the number of threads per square inch of fabric or its density initially became a very successful marketing ploy. Not that this indicator would be a deception for consumers, but judging the quality of a fabric based only on its density is extremely wrong. Even choosing underwear with 1000+ threads, you can end up with a low-quality product.

What to do?

Instead of choosing bedding based on the density of the fabric, try to pay attention to other points …

Fiber. Most bedding materials are made from cotton fibers, and their strength does not depend on the number of threads per square inch, but on the length of the fiber itself. The highest quality is Egyptian cotton linen. Also, good quality materials can boast of such materials as pima cotton (pima, supima), organic cotton, poplin, satin and even bamboo fabrics.

Weave. The type of weaving of fibers determines the sensation of touching the fabric, and its appearance, and strength, and, accordingly, cost. Here, you really choose, guided by your own preferences and financial capabilities.

Fabric density. As we mentioned above, the maximum thread count per square inch is not a guarantee of the quality of the bedding. Modern technologies make it possible to achieve a very large number of threads, even in low-quality materials.As a rule, it is recommended to choose bed linen with a density of 500-600 threads per square inch – this is the optimal indicator, but any indicator from 200 will be normal.After 800, the number of threads per inch does not matter – that is, it makes no difference whether the packaging the density is 800, or 1000 (this does not affect the quality of the material and its wear resistance).

Country of origin. In many ways, the quality of the material from which the bedding is made depends on the country of origin.Typically, 200 threads per square inch Italian bedding is better than 1000 thread count Pakistani bedding. France and Italy are the best producers of bedding, even though they use the same fibers to make it as other countries.

Processing. Many bedding sets can be chemically treated after production so that they do not wrinkle or shrink after washing. But, no matter how tempting it may sound that a new set of linen does not have to be ironed, try to give preference to organic cotton without chemicals.

Choosing a new set of bed, be sure to visit the online bedding store sleeperset.com.ua. Here you can buy incredibly beautiful and high-quality bedding by forming your own set according to the size of the mattress, blanket and pillows, or by choosing individual bedding items, and all this at very affordable prices!

90,000 of which material is better to buy, we disassemble all the subtleties

ten.12.2017

We spend about a third of our lives in sleep. Therefore, it is important to make the sleeping place comfortable, safe and beautiful. How to choose bed linen and not go crazy? There are so many incomprehensible words and numbers on the packaging! What are crepe, poplin and ranfors? How is reactive printing different from pigment printing? What size duvet cover do I need? We answer all your questions in a detailed guide.

Material

You have probably noticed that you want to touch the fabric of one bed linen again and again, while another set asks to hide it as far as possible and never lay it again.In a shop near your home, it’s easy to choose the perfect material. When buying on the Internet, the task becomes more complicated – you can’t touch it! But you can learn to “read” the packaging and description. This is what we will do now.

Bed linen differs in composition, type of weaving of threads and density.

Roster

According to this parameter, four types of fabrics can be distinguished: synthetic, natural, artificial and blended. And if you do not understand how the first differ from the third, or you are sure that it is better to buy bedding made of natural material, be sure to read on.We will break the popular stereotype and prove that each fabric has its own advantages. The main thing is to find the one that meets your exact requirements.

Natural fabrics

Artificial fabrics

Produced from plant fibers. Are pleasant
to the touch, breathe well and wick moisture away.They are more expensive than synthetic ones.

Materials: cotton, linen, silk.

They are created on the basis of natural materials using modern technologies. According to their characteristics, they are not only not inferior to natural fabrics, but often even surpass them.

Materials: bamboo, modal, tensel.

Synthetic fabrics

Blended fabrics

Obtained from the products of natural gas and oil processing.
Easier to dye, look aesthetically pleasing, dry instantly. They breathe worse and absorb moisture.
They are much cheaper than natural and mixed fabrics.

Produced by combining natural and synthetic, artificial and synthetic or natural and artificial fibers. This combination allows compromises to be found. For example, cotton + polyester = more durable and cheaper fabric, which is better breathable and moisture absorbing than synthetics.

Thread Braiding

Take a closer look: the fabric of your shirt differs from the fabric of the cardigan not only in color, but also in the way the threads are intertwined. It’s the same story with bedding. The texture of the fabric, its strength, practicality and durability depends on the type of weaving of threads.

Linen. This is the simplest type of weaving: the threads are crossed crosswise through one.Fabrics with plain weave are the most inexpensive, slightly rough to the touch, have gaps.

Fabrics: coarse calico, poplin, ranfors, percale, flannel, polycotton.

Satin. The twisted threads in the satin weave fabric intersect 2-4 diagonally. The fabric turns out to be smooth, durable, lasts longer than fabric with plain weave, and is more expensive.

Fabrics: satin, polysatin, novosatin, stripe satin, mako satin.

Satin. In satin weave fabrics, the threads intersect after 5 or more. The material turns out to be silky, flowing, the front side is slightly slippery.

Fabrics: silk, satin.

Twill. The threads in twill weave intersect with an asymmetric shift after 2 or 3, forming a diagonal hem. The fabric is quite tough, but very durable.

Fabric: Twill.

Density

Strength and durability of bed linen depends on this parameter. The areal density of a fabric is measured in grams per square meter. The lower the value, the thinner the material and the shorter its service life.Too dense fabric will be harsh to the touch. Moreover, for each canvas, the golden mean is different.

So, the optimum density for coarse calico, poplin and satin is 110–125 g / m². For linen fabric – 125–150 g / m².

There are other fabrics for bedding. For example, jacquard (fabric with a pattern, which is created due to the special weaving of threads) is often used for sewing the outer side of a duvet cover. This material is not very pleasant to the touch, but it makes the kit especially beautiful.

For summer, sets are created in which, instead of a duvet cover, a light blanket from the most delicate velsoft is provided. Terry sheets are perfect for the cold season. Bed linen “winter-summer” is very popular, where a layer of insulation is quilted to the duvet cover: no need to buy an additional winter blanket!

Design

Types of prints

The complexity, clarity and durability of the pattern depends on how the fabric is dyed.

Pigment printing

Reactive Printing

This type of printing uses pigments to color the fabric. They penetrate only into the surface layer of the canvas, so the staining is not the most resistant. In order for the product to retain its color longer, it is recommended to wash it at a temperature not exceeding 40 ° C.Bed linen with such images is cheaper.

This printing method is more resistant and durable: the reagents penetrate deeper into the fibers of the fabric, so the drawing will not fade or fade over time. Kits painted this way are more expensive, but worth it, right?

Buckle

Think this is a minor detail? No matter how it is! Remember the duvet covers you used to hide in as a child, with a large hole in the middle, from where a colorful woolen blanket peeped out.Were you also annoyed that it turned over all the time when you slept? Fortunately, modern bedding fasteners are much more comfortable.

Valve or Slot

The simplest and cheapest option. Cons: Pillow and blanket pop out every now and then.

Lightning

Ideal solution for perfectionists – zippered with a hidden zipper and that’s it! Nothing sticks out, the blanket and pillow are always in place.Cons: the price of the kit is higher, and the zipper may break.

Buttons

They do their job perfectly. And if they suddenly come off, it won’t take long to sew. Golden mean!

Buttons

Almost like buttons, only they fasten faster. Sew-on buttons are more reliable than adhesive buttons and those that are attached using a special press.

Decor

For those who want more than just a print, special sets are created.

Lace, embroidery and appliques complement the expensive sets. They are also placed on the outer parts of the products, so the bed linen turns out to be incredibly beautiful, while remaining delicate to the touch.
“Oxford ears” – this is the name of the protruding borders, which are used to decorate the pillowcase to give it elegance. Their width is usually 3–7 centimeters.

How many kits are needed

The more, the better, because bed linen helps to transform the interior in a matter of minutes! But seriously, we have calculated everything.

For an adult / couple

At least 3 sets: you sleep on one, the second in the wash, the third in reserve (breakfast in bed ended in a puddle of coffee and condensed milk on the sheet, you wanted something new or one of the sets became unusable). If a small child sleeps with you, feel free to buy a fourth and a couple of spare sheets.

For child

The crumb will need at least 3 (preferably 4) sets of bed linen and a couple of spare sheets.An older child, like an adult, needs 3 pieces.

For guests

For hygiene reasons, it is best for friends and family to have a separate set with pillows and a blanket in the house.

How to take care of bed linen

Remember the 3 main rules for the care of bed linen, so that the sets will delight you as long as possible:

1. Always read the recommendations on the packaging. The manufacturer points out really important things there.Crepe bed linen, for example, cannot be ironed, otherwise the fabric will lose its texture.

2. Be sure to wash items before using them for the first time. It is hygienic. And very cheap lingerie can even color you if you haven’t sent it to the machine first. You don’t want to wake up in the morning with flowers on your cheek, do you?

3. Color separate from white. Red is separate from green. Bed linen is separate from socks and jeans. And if you turn the pillowcases and duvet covers inside out before putting them in the typewriter and before drying, the patterns on them will stay bright longer.

If you have lost the packaging, then when choosing a washing mode, be guided by the composition of the fabric.

Natural fabrics. Wash at a temperature of 30-40 degrees. Display complex spots on white by setting
90 ° C on a typewriter. You can iron it with a hot iron.

Synthetic fabrics. Wash at a temperature of 30-40 degrees. Iron on medium mode.

Silk. Only suitable for a delicate wash at a low temperature. Be sure to use special detergents.

Lifehacks

  • If you like to change the look of your bedroom often, put together a basic wardrobe for your bed.
  • Hate to fill your duvet cover? Give preference to special models with slots on the sides. This saves a lot of time!
  • Do you have several pillows at once or do you just buy them often? You will love the transformable pillowcases that change the size
    from 50 × 70 cm to 70 × 70 cm.
  • If you are tired of constantly wrinkled sheets, then buy products with an elastic band. They are wonderful in that they do not go astray, because they are attached around the perimeter of the mattress.

Choose the perfect bedding in the Bedroom Textiles section.

What is the best fabric density for quality bedding

Bed linen should be beautiful and stylish, made of material that is pleasant to the body, with even neat seams and up-to-date colors – have you forgotten anything?

An important indicator of the quality of bed linen is the density of the fabric. The durability of the kit and your comfort during rest depends on this.We discuss what density of bedding is the best and why.

What determines the density of the material and how is it determined

According to GOST, the density of the fabric is estimated by two parameters:

  • linear – the ratio of the number of threads per cm2;
  • surface – the ratio of grams per m2.

Density depends on:

  • raw materials – cotton, linen, bamboo, viscose, silk;
  • ways of weaving threads – cambric, calico, chintz, satin, poplin.

Hint: a good manufacturer always indicates the density parameters on the package, as well as the composition of the fabric. How to choose bedding by fabric density

The rule is simple: the thinner the threads, the higher the density of their weave, and hence the quality of the fabric. How to choose high-quality bedding in terms of density? Parameters to help you navigate:

  • premium sets of percale – from 100 to 160 grams / m2;
  • bamboo sets – 120 grams / m2;
  • cotton linen – from 50 to 150 grams / m2;
  • linen from Tencel – from 127 to 173 grams / m2;
  • satin linen – from 85 to 130 grams / m2;
  • poplin linen – 115 grams / m2;
  • luxury quality coarse calico or satin-jacquard – 140 grams / m2;
  • natural linen sets – from 180 to 200 grams / m2.
