Hanging by a thread: the best thread count for bedsheets

For most of us, what keeps us going through the day is the knowledge that our bed awaits for us back home. The feeling of just plunging ourselves onto the bed after a long and tiring day, cocooning in our favorite blanket and tuning out the rest of the world, it is almost close to nirvana. And this euphoria is increased manifold when we have the perfect, beautiful bedsheet canoodling us.
 
We all know the excitement that comes from putting a new bedsheet on an old bed. A bedsheet had the potential of changing the look of a whole room altogether. And for the bedsheet savvy ones, the thread count of a bedsheet makes a world of difference.
 
 
Thread count generally refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet, and the more likely it will wear well-or even soften-over time. Good sheets range anywhere from 200 to 800, although you'll occasionally see numbers over 1,000.
 
This does not imply that lower thread count means lower quality of bedsheets. There are some bedsheets that have a thread count of about 200 and yet have the perfect finishing. In fact, nowadays, fewer chemicals and mechanical means are used which gives the bedsheets with lower thread count a good performance.
 
Also, a bedsheet that claims to have a thread count of above 400, it is not actually a thread count. It is just a sheet with multi-ply thread i.e. multiple threads twisted together and each individual thread counted. Think deep enough and you will start questioning the idea of thread count itself. So should we rely on thread count claims?
 
This simply implies that in the end, it is actually about the textile used and the way it is weaved that matters for a bedsheet. The thread count part is just what makes it look good, but it is the quality of the textile used that makes you sleep like a baby.
 
And nothing beats cotton bedsheets when it comes to going to dreamland and floating on clouds whilst sleeping on a bed. And not just cotton; it is organic cotton that is the best choice for shoppers for its breathability, durability and smoothness.
 
Using organic cotton bedsheets also mean that you don't need to have vivid dreams about destroying the planet. Organic cotton is cultivated using eco-friendly mechanisms, which means that even the bedsheets weaved out of it have nothing to be guilty about.
 
We at Turmerry believe in the philosophy that our customers deserve a good nights' sleep. And that is why our bedsheets are made of pure organic cotton that feels heavenly against your skin. Our bedsheets are of the highest quality, not only because we have the acceptable and genuine amount of thread count, but also because we use organic cotton with extra-long fibres.
