What is thread count?

For many of us, thread count can be a little confusing. Is a high number always good? Does it guarantee sheet strength and softness? Does it guarantee quality? There’s a common misconception that a high thread count guarantees quality. It's actually just one part of the formulation. Thread count is merely a measure of sheet weight. It’s more important to look at the quality of the thread, the quality and size of the yarn fibres and the way a sheet is finished.

At Sheridan, we start by creating our sheeting using the most premium long staple cottons – which is what sets us apart. Our philosophy is to trust your skin to choose the feel you love, regardless of thread count. *Sheridan thread count is calculated per 10cm²

Choosing your Fabric

Percale

Percale – crisp & breathable

Sateen

Sateen – silky & indulgent

Crafted using 100% cotton, sateen sheets typically offer a higher thread count, giving them a beautiful sheen finish. In comparison to percale, sateen sheets are slightly heavier and more tightly woven.
Egyptian cotton

Tencel

Tencel® – sustainably soft

Eco-friendly Tencel® has a reputation for sustainability, relying on very minimal water usage during production.

Our Reilly Sheet Set is crafted using vintage washed chambray, creating a cosy and soft feel. With no need to iron, a simple tumble dry complements the chambray tousled look.
Linen

Linen – softer with each wash

Crafted using 100% Belgian linen fibres, our Abbotson Linen Collection softens after each wash and keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Types of Weaves

A few of our favourites are sateen, matelassé and plain weaves, but what do these actually mean?

SATEEN WEAVES

Luxuriously soft and silky to touch, this weave is all about the hand-feel and sheen finish. The weaving technique improves the fabric strength by 25%, making it a durable option whilst not losing its beautiful lustre finish.

MATELASSÉ WEAVES

The fine craftsmanship that goes into this weave is incomparable. With its roots in Portugal, matelassé weaves are crafted in family-run mills whose heritage spans generations. Using a double cloth construction, these small mills create a highly textural, 3D quilted effect, resulting in a fusion of old heritage designs and modern innovation.

Care Instructions


With your sheeting and bedding in constant use, it’s important to take care of them so they last longer and ensure you have a comfortable sleep night after night. The good news is, all our bed linen is easy care. Our entire bed linen collection can be tumble dried, perfect for busy lifestyles. To get the best results, follow the care instructions on product labels. However, as a general rule, we have put together a few things to remember when caring for your bed linen.


Wash your sheets weekly.


Reduce wear and tear by alternating your sheets for a fresh set once a week to ensure your sheets last longer.


Avoid using bleach. Bleach tends to be too harsh on cottons and natural fibres and is damaging to the colour and texture of your pieces.


Optical brighteners are safe for use on whites, but we don’t recommend ever using them on coloured materials.


A warm, gentle machine wash is the optimum laundry temperature to clean your linen and ensure all dirt is removed. Always read the care label though as there is often an exception to the rule!


If tumble drying your sheets, pop them onto the bed whilst still warm so the wrinkles smooth themselves out.


Make sure your bedlinen is completely dry before storing in your linen closet to prevent any dampness and mildew.


Keep your linen closet cool and dry. Damp closets result in mouldy sheets!
