The Thread Count Myth
Roostery’s Bedding Collection features 300 single-ply thread count: The perfect mixture of cozy comfort and a relaxed, yet durable feel. Most consumers purchase bedding that is between 200-400 thread count, and a higher thread count does not always mean better quality. In fact, manufacturing techniques can now allow for a higher thread count by using weaker multi-ply thread which does not translate to increased quality. How do the facts stack up? Read below to find out more.
What is thread count?
Thread count is determined by adding the warp threads with the weft threads in a single square inch of fabric. The warp are the threads that run up and down, held in the loom during weaving. The weft are threads that run horizontally across the width of the fabric, woven through the warp threads. For example, fabric with 125 vertical or warp threads and 125 horizontal or weft threads would have a thread count of 250.
Multi-ply vs single-ply thread:
Thread count used to be a primary identifier of quality in bedding and a measure that consumers used to choose sheets. In the early 2000s, the first set of sheets with 1000+ thread count hit the market. Manufacturers experimented with ultra-fine fibers to create multi-ply thread, then counted multiple strands per thread in their thread counts. For example, if 125×125 sheets were made with 3-ply thread, the thread count jumps from 250 to 750, which falsely implied a more luxurious product.
