Right on the front of the label, the manufacturer will tell you the tread count of the sheets. This refers to the number of threads per square inch in both directions in the weave. The higher the thread count, the more luxurious the feel of a fabric. But beware, as a higher thread count usually means that the individual threads are thinner and may not wear as well. For good wear and to get the softest feel, we suggest you choose a thread count above 250 but no lower than 175.
Thread Count: Most people are familiar with thread count, but many mistakenly assume that it's the only important factor to consider when choosing sheets. A sheet's thread count reveals the number of threads _ both horizontal and vertical _ contained in one square inch of fabric. While it's true that in general, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet, it's also true that midrange thread counts _ 400 to 600 _ are often very soft, are usually more durable than sheets with super_high thread counts and are far more affordable. So don't rely on thread count alone to make your decision: the sheet's weave and fabric also have a big impact on its feel.
