Our bed linen ranges includes 180TC to 1000TC. In our opinion there is no need to choose anything other than this. Within this range all our customers should be able to find a suitable balance between comfort, luxury and value.
Our bedding products start from a basic 200TC plain weave but our 200TC is no ordinary 200TC. It is manufactured using the finest cotton for a smooth hand feel and yet launders brilliantly. Our 300TC is our "Flagship" product and combines the smoothest sateen handle with incredible tensile strength and durability.
For bed linens with a thread count of higher than 400TC, we can supply these, but we actively discourage our customers from using anything higher than 400TC. A popular myth currently exists that the higher the thread count, the higher the quality. This is not true. Quality depends on the yarn used and the finishing process that the grey fabric is subjected to. Additionally, anything higher than 400TC becomes un-washable in commercial laundries due to 'hydro-burst' which occurs with the inability of the water to pass through the fabric.
Having also supplied many commercial laundries, we are fully aware of potential problems such as skewing on pillowcases, shrinkage, stitching durability and straightness, and most importantly consistent sizing and fabric quality.
