Thread Count

When purchasing your beautiful linen there are a number of important features as well as thread count to be taken into account, these include the type of cotton, the yarn (thickness of the cotton), the hand or feel of the fabric, and the nature of the finishing.

Thread count is the measure of how many threads there are in the warp (horizontal) and the weft (vertical) that are woven into 10 sq cm of fabric.

A thread count of 200 or higher is considered a percale. The finer the yarn the more that can be woven into the 10cmsq and therefore the finer, softer and more flexible the fabric is. Egyptian cotton is considered the best in the world. When the pod of cotton is woven out it has a long staple thread cotton therefore there are less joins.
