Thread count means how many threads, lengthwise and widthwise are woven into one square inch of fabric. With finer threads, such as those produced with pure Egyptian cotton, more can be woven into each square inch which produces a finer, softer and flexible material. The higher the thread count, the higher the quality of the sheets. A count of 200 and higher is considered percale but don’t be misled to think that the definition of luxurious means a higher thread count there are other considerations such as quality, feel, finish, comfort, quality, and value.
Percale vs. Sateen
Percale is a closely woven, plain weave, spun fabric made from both carded and combed yarns and Percale sheeting is the finest available. The high thread count – above 180 – gives the fabric a soft, silk-like feel. Sateen is weave construction that has more yarn surface on the face of the cloth than other basic weaves giving a softer and more lustrous look resembling satin. Which is best? The way in which fabric is woven also has an effect on its feel. Cotton sateen sheets are frequently softer than those with a Percale weave. A satin weave has more warp threads on the top surface, resulting in a silk-like touch and attractive luster or sheen. As to which is better there is no answer as it’s a matter a personal taste; some people prefer the crispness of a Percale weave, others like the softness of the sateen.
The thread count is the number of threads in each square inch and generally speaking, the higher the thread count, the more luxurious, dense and soft the material will feel. The quality of the yarn is also very important in the feel of the product, so thread count alone does not always tell the whole story.
Guests expect to be provided with soft sumptuous luxury towels that can withstand wash after wash and quality should not be comprised.
So what weight of towel is best? Towels are measured by GSM: Grams per Square Metre which is the density of the towel (Towels and bathrobes typically vary from 300 to 800 GSM; other fabrics may have values as low as 100 GSM). Any towel from 450 gsm to 600gsm is the ideal weight for a guest towel to balance softness and absorbency at a cost effective price. But weight is only important if the cotton is of a premium quality and this has to do with the length of the fibers otherwise known as the staple. Staple length is a term referring to the average length of a group of fibers of any composition. The staple depends on the origin of the fibers. Natural fibers, such as cotton or wool have a range of lengths in each sample, so the staple length is an average. We supply a range of Terry towels in a variety of weight and colours that sustain the text of time saving you time and moneys as towels have to be replaced less frequently.
