Some people do concern about numbers of threads used to form or making their sheets for one way or another. It is believed that many people think the more thread counts used to make one sheet, the soft and cuddly it would be feels. This may be true for one degree or another. The writer believes, the highest thread count sheets these day are having 1200 thread count to make one piece of sheet and this can be extremely high priced and the availability of this kind of sheet also not many stores have put this on their stock anyway because of the high priced condition it brings.
The debate of numbers of thread count used in making sheet started back in 1990’s and more than 20 years later, the issue and question of highest thread count sheets still being questioned. The term of thread count is actually refers to numbers of thread used in making 1 square inch of sheet/fabric and this terminology has been widely used in the industry as well as refered to as marketing brand/quote in one sheet product for their customers to know before they purchase one.
There are still some debates on how is actually numbers of thread count to make one square inch of sheet is understand, because if manufacturer uses 1 ply sheet and 1 pick instead of multiple pick, then the official counts of thread used to make is perhaps only able to reached 400. Therefore, some manufacturers are in agreement within the industry to use 2 ply yarns and multiple picks into the weft and construction of the sheet making and this doubled the number of counts into new figure. And this is the reason why, perhaps, there are some highest thread count sheets are available in the market for customers.
Some customer do feel they are being cheated by this method because doubling the counts does not mean they are counted twice, as many customer’s reviews said. But the industry has come into the agreement for this purpose in making their version of highest thread count sheets in their factories.
Therefore, it is now understandable that highest thread count sheets are actually used 2 ply of yarn and multiple picks on the weft construction to achieve the number of thread used figure printed on their packaging and becomes the selling point for the product for their customer to judge.
