Thread Count On Sheets & Quilt Covers

Hopefully This May Help With The Explaining Of
Thread Counts.

The More Threads Is Not Always The Best.

This is where it becomes trickier. See it would be simple if all yarns were created equal and therefore, the higher the count, the denser and more durable the fabric, and therefore the higher the quality. This is true in some sense, however, over the years, retailers have cottoned on (get it) to the fact that people expect higher thread counts to be the best, and have started to cheat by using lower quality, thinner yarns and twisting them together to state a higher thread count. A true thread count cannot be achieved over 600 threads per square inch, unless extremely fine thread counts are used or twisted.

So the best thread count, we believe to be between 180 and 600. With long staple (the longer the yarn, the better the quality), 100% cotton yarns, you can achieve a fabulous quality and feel at this level. Anything below 180 will not last as well, and will be thinner. BUT the higher thread counts are not very user friendly as they are like cardboard and do not always feel nice. A friend of mine said he purchased some and he said what a waste of money (£40 each)
I would be gutted if I had paid that for some sheets and did not like them. So just beware thick is not only best.

For normal day to day sheets or quilt covers around 180 thread count is fine, try and get them with percale cotton as this is a lot softer than just normal cotton.

Hope this has helped.

How To Contrast Bedding Sets With Cushions

 

Contrasting Bedding Sets And
Cushions To Transform The Look
Of My Bedroom.
This Will Help Give Your Bedroom
A Luxurious Feel.

 

 

 

 

 

Contrasting bedding sets and duvet sets to cushions is quite simple really you just

Need to know the colours that will contrast with your bedding, a lot of Bedding

Sets now have matching cushions available in the range you will buy, but if you want

A personal look you can add as much or as less as you want.

Its all about your own personal taste? For instance if you go to your local pub or

restaurant you will see colours and designs you would never put together because

These company’s pay a lot of money for designers to do this, and there is nothing

To stop you doing the same to give your bedroom a personal touch.

So just pay attention to what you see when you are out and about and you will get

some really good Ideas that will transform your bedroom.

A lot of people say how many cushions should I have on my bed? Well this is completely

Up to the individual taste, you can add as much colour as you want, I do think having different

Sizes and styles makes it look more luxurious but it’s up to personal taste, it would be a very

Boring world if we all liked the same colours and designs.

 

Hope this has helped with your design dilemma.

The sheets are best washed first before you use them as it will make them fluffier and soft, plus some factories treat them before they are packed, so they can be packed Easier.
