There is a lot of speculation regarding thread count. Does a higher number mean higher quality? Does it guarantee strength and softness?
Sheridan Quality Control Manager, Yvonne Carbone, reveals the truth behind the thread count.
"Generally, a high thread count means a finer weave. However, it’s more important to look at the quality of the thread, the quality and size of the yarn fibres and the way the sheet is finished.
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."
