Get confused by thread count jargon? Bless your cotton socks
To help you out, we’ve unpicked the facts from the fiction
What is Thread Count?
Thread count (TC) is the number of threads per 10 square cm of fabric
In theory, if it was a book, it would be how many pages you were getting for your dollar
Does Thread Count count?
Yes and no. The more important thing to consider is what’s right for you
Just like you wouldn’t pick up a horror novel if you’re easily scared , there’s no point choosing bedding with a super-high thread count if there are other parts of the story that you’ll get tangled up in.
Do you like silky-smooth sheets? Then you should choose something with a sateen weave
Prefer something with a bit more texture? Linen will really butter you up
These factors are so much more important than thread count, so make sure you’re making an informed choice that’s suited to your taste
Villains can be disguised as heroes and heroines...
Some manufacturers add extra threads to poor-quality sheets to increase TC
So while your new sheets might say 1000 TC, they might actually be scratchy and unravel quicker than the plot of 50 Shades of Grey
You want sheets that would be worthy of the surname Stark not Lannister so make sure you’re not going to bed with a villain
Still convinced 1000TC sheets are 1000% your dream?
Well, we can’t say we blame you there
1000TC sheets, when made well, can be a feast for the senses
We have two different 1000 TC ranges for you to choose from
Our Mille 1000 TC sheets are a knockout. Opulent and with a sateen weave, there’s 1000 reasons why they’re our favourites
Our gorgeous Palazzo Royale 1000 TC bedding is a bit of a genre mashup; it’s 56% cotton and 44% polyester. Like any good story, the B plot strengthens the A plot - so poly reinforces the cotton in these beauties to keep them lasting longer than the honeymoon period
The poly is also on the reverse side, so only the cotton touches your skin - ensuring you’re kept in the royal style of your favourite fairytale
What’s your fave type of bedding? Do you love getting between the covers of 1000 TC sheets as much as you enjoy diving between the pages of your favourite book?
