Which Thread Count Should I Buy?

It can be difficult for people to understand which “Thread count” they should buy.

Our Linen Expert, Pamela Lilburne Opie, has put together the following recommendations for you!

What to buy for your kids beds: We recommend 180 to 230 Thread Count for kids bedding. It's a strong & long lasting fabric – as kids tend to kick and play in their linen. If you want an “easy care” option that you don’t have to iron, you might consider a polyester/cotton blend fabric for their room. Definitely a "percale" fabric will be stronger than "sateen".

Which Thread Count to buy for your teenage/adult kids: We recommend 180 to 300 Thread Count: 200 TC is more affordable and still good quality, whilst 250 or 300 TC is a better quality option (a nice combination of a strong fabric with a soft feel).  

What to buy for your guest room: We recommend 250 to 300 Thread Count, as it is a great quality for guest rooms, where you want your guest to have really nice linen, but you may not wish to spend too much. 400TC is a more luxurious option.

What to buy for your master bedroom: We recommend 300 to 500 Thread Count for the sheets & pillowcases that you’ll sleep on. The duvet cover design should be a design that you simply like, but check that the back of the duvet cover (or comforter) is 100% cotton, particularly if you don’t use a flat sheet. Try our 400 Thread Count Christy “Sateen” sheets.

If you like a “luxury feel” then try our premium quality 500 or 900 Thread Count sateen, which are made in Portugal for the ultimate luxury bed.

Remember the higher the thread count, the thinner the cotton threads are. So "extra-fine" "High Thread Count" sheets will require more careful washing - i.e. wash any fabrics over 500 thread count separately, and not with any items with zips or "hook & eye" fasteners. Also avoid overfilling the washing machine.
