Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads in one square inch of fabric. Thread count in sheets can range from 80 to 700, although most stores sell sheets that range from 180 to 320. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer the fabric feels, but that doesn´t necessarily translate to a longer lasting sheet(sheets with a higher thread count are usually more expensive). One Linens Department Manager says thread counts above 380 are really irrelevant. Manufacturers twist two threads in a way that lets them double the thread count.

Many linens manufacturers tout thread count as the best way to choose a sheet. But, others point out that the quality of the fibers and finish are a more important determinate of comfort and durability. In fact, sheets made of linen, flannel, or jerseys (those trendy “T-shirt” sheets) have low thread counts. A high thread count would eliminate part of the appeal of these sheets. According to Consumer Reports, cotton and cotton-blend sheets with a thread count of 180 to 200 stand up to wear and tear and provide satisfactory comfort.
