Sheets Shopping Guide

There is much misinformation on the market today regarding thread count and the quality of sheets . The truth is, there are many factors that will affect the quality of your sheets. 

Fiber

A high quality fiber will certainly have an impact on the comfort of your sheets: temperature, softness and durability. Our sheets are superior fiber in order to maximize our quality products.


High quality weaving

A high quality weaving and thread size are the main assets for quality, softness and durability of sheets.

1) Thread size: The higher the number is the thinner the thread is, which gives a softer touch.

2) Weaving: Single Pick is the best way to weave fabric. It will eliminate all deformation of the fabric during the use.. It is more expensive to do single pick.

3 ) Thread Count: The thread count can increase the quality of your fabric, but be careful; you can easily be confused... You can find 2 sets of sheets at 2 different prices both 300TC. The sheet weaved double pick is produced faster, which often is the reason why the lower cost. The main disadvantage of a double pick fabric is the deformation after the first washes and will be less resistant than the single pick fabric.  As well, some products on the market will have multi-ply yarns that can be lower in quality.  A single ply yarn is made up of one long thread. A multi-ply yarn is made of two, three, or even four or five threads twisted together. Unfortunately, this allows some companies to use cheaper multi-ply yarns and count each individual ply as an individual thread.  Using the same exact weave, with a cheaper multi-ply yarn, some manufacturers could list a 500, 750, 1000, or 1250 thread count fabric that wouldn’t be nearly as good in quality as the single ply fabric with the lower thread count number. The type of weave and quality of the cotton or other materials used makes a much bigger difference than the thread count number. Most fabrics with a thread count over 600 are a sign of deceptive marketing tactics at work.

When choosing sheets there are many things to consider. 

Firstly, you’ll want to look at what the fibers are made of. Next, you’ll want to choose a weave that feels right to you. The most common for fine cotton sheets are sateen and percale. Finally, if purchasing cotton, check to see if the fabric is made from long staple cotton. This refers to the length of the individual cotton fibers that were spun together to make each thread. Longer cotton fibers create stronger, smoother threads, and tend to last longer. 

In the end, the best way to determine which sheeting is the right choice for you is to sleep on it. Different people sleep better with different weaves, weights, and textures of sheeting, so choose something that feels luxurious against your skin, and enjoy it!

Shrinkage

Sheets are manufactured with a % for shrinkage. Each fabric has its own shrinkage percentage. This applies to washes at 100OF warm water. The shrinkage can occur after 4 to 5 washes. After this number of washes, your sheets will have the desired dimensions.
