What thread count for me?
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.
120-180 Thread Count | This range is most suitable for rentals and basic domestic use, the type often found in hospitals, and certainly good for a spare room and where the usage calls for material of a more basic nature.
200 Thread Count | A very cool and light percale cotton, mostly used in summer. Found in many hotels, this product is ideal for contract or domestic usage where the requirement is for cool crisp bed linen within a certain budget.
400 Thread Count | Definitely our best selling cotton product. A soft yet more substantial Egyptian cotton percale than the 200 count, favoured for it’s cool feel and durability, with a universal appeal. This product is what you expect to find on the beds of major hotel chains worldwide.
600 Thread Count | Here is where the exclusive end of quality begins, made possible by the use of compressed air technology in the weaving process. It is a beautiful lustrous, uniform, soft and very smooth fabric, the best selling Luxury cotton in our upper range.
800 – 1000 Thread Count | Ultimate Luxury, pure indulgence, a step above the 600 Thread Count with an even greater lustre and a fuller fabric. This is an amazingly robust yet silky weave and will always be considered to be very beautiful bed linen even after many, many years.
Does thread count matter?
What is Percale and Sateen?
What is GSM?
GSM stands for Grams Per Square Metre which is a measure of the weight of the cotton used in producing towels. Generally speaking the higher the GSM the softer and more luxurious the towel. However, any towel of 450 GSM and above will meet the demands of a quality hotel in terms of feel and longevity.
Washing InstructionsAlways follow the care label. Here are a few guidelines on how to optimise the durability of our products:
Egyptian cotton bedlinen and tablelinen
- Machine Wash at 40 degrees centigrade, tumble dry with cooling down period, take out of dryer shortly after cycle is completed, fold, lay flat and iron whilst fabric is still damp. You may also hang the bedlinen to drip dry, this will result in minimum creasing. Do not mix wash with other fibers like poly/cotton.
Polycotton bedlinen and tablelinen
- Machine Wash at 30 degrees centigrade, tumble dry with cooling down period, take out of dryer shortly after cycle is completed, fold while fabric is still damp, should not need ironing. If you prefer a pristine appearance then minimum ironing may be required.
Towelling & robes
We recommend that your new towel/robe should be washed before use, as it takes several washes to achieve their maximum absorbency & softness.
Try not to use fabric conditioner. If you do, use only a very small amount and not in every wash as this coats the towelling loops, reducing towels/robes absorbency.
Tumble dry your towels with dryer balls (available from most supermarkets, or two tennis balls) in the drum to help get them extra soft and fluffy.
If you see a stray pulled loop on your towel/robe please cut off with a pair of scissors, this will not damage the item.
Bathroom detergents and some beauty products such as cleansers contain bleaching agents and may cause permanent discoloration to your towel/robe.
Please do not dry clean your towels/robes.
Always wash dark colours separately
- The above washing instructions are for guidance only, for more detailed procedure, all of our products have specific instructions on the packaging and/or labels.
