Thread Count Is A Lie -- Here's How To Buy The Best-Quality Sheets
Most people deciding between two sets of sheets would choose the higher thread count. But it turns out we’ve all been duped. There are a maximum number of threads that can fit into a square inch of fabric. Depending on the type of cotton used, that number is generally not more than 400. So there is an awful lot of interesting maths involved in the sheets you see in a department store that can be up to a 1200 thread count.”
Know The “Real” Thread Count
Thread count is the total number of threads per square inch in a fabric (counting both horizontal and vertical threads). In theory, the higher the thread count, the softer and higher-quality the sheets. But brands nowadays are counting multi-ply threads, which can lead to higher, erroneous numbers. In reality, to achieve a higher thread count manufacturers are generally using a lower grade of cotton that becomes very thin when spun. They then twist this thread around itself to create a ‘multi-ply’ thread. When they use 2-ply thread and weave it to a theoretical 300-thread count (150 horizontal, 150 vertical) they call it a 600-thread count sheet and sell it that way. So imagine that a 4-ply thread is woven as a 200-thread count, but sold as an 800-threat count. A regular ply 300 thread count would feel better and last longer, but most consumers are convinced to always buy a higher thread count. Fortunately, brands are now required to list the thread ply on the package, so when sheets are ‘lustrously woven from 2-ply cotton thread’ as we see at a major department store, people will be highly sceptical.
Don’t Rely On Touch
Common sense dictates you can tell how nice sheets are by touching them, but unfortunately it’s not that simple. Many manufacturers are applying polishes, waxes, and other substances that increase the lustre or soft feel. Unfortunately, they all wash off after a washing or two. Instead, your sheets are of a good quality if they feel better after every subsequent wash. Good quality sheets should also last for years and never pill. If you’re deciding in the store, look at the seams and manufacturing. This won’t always be an easy tell, but if there are threads hanging off or non-uniform stitches, that’s a giveaway that these sheets are not the best. In conclusion, consumers should stop putting so much emphasis on thread count, and put far more emphasis on the quality, softness, and durability of the cotton.
What is Antimicrobial
The term ‘antimicrobial” is defined as “destroying or inhibiting the growth of microorganisms, and especially pathogenic microorganisms.” Microorganisms “include bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi, like mold and mildew.” The fibres in the fabric have been infused with microbial-inhibiting silver chloride to eliminate 99.99% bacteria on contact, which will be activated by the body heat to release millions of silver ions to inhibit the bacteria, mould and odours.
Benefits of Antimicrobial Fabric
When it comes to specialty fabrics and the use of antimicrobial features, it’s important to understand that including a pathogen fighting layer of defence prolongs the life of the textile and protects the end user. The primary function of antimicrobials is to help prevent bacteria and other microorganisms from infecting human beings. Keep in mind, microorganisms can live in a fabric and grow. That’s why antimicrobials are so effective -- they prevent the growth and spread of microorganisms within the fabric. Basically, an antimicrobial is applied to a fabric to help fight off pathogens that could potentially infect the user. This means that the antimicrobial is constantly working against microorganisms and not only protecting users, but also prolonging the life of the fabric. That’s why the use of antimicrobial fabrics are increasing and so helpful in the places like hospitals. Remember, the first line of defence starts with a product that does its job. For Fern Fabric®, investing in antimicrobial textiles is one way to ensure the longevity of the fabric and also help keep replacement costs down.
