Which Thread Count Do I Need?

It can be difficult for consumers to understand what “Thread count” they should buy.

So our expert team at Linen Obsession has put together the following recommendations for you…

What to buy for your kids beds: we recommend 180 to 200 Thread Count for a strong & long lasting fabric – as kids tend to kick and play in their linen much more than us adults. 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. Definately percale fabric will be stronger than sateen.

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

What to buy for your guest room: we recommend 250 to 300 Thread Count is a perfect quality for guest rooms, where you want your guest to have really nice linen, but you may not wish to spend too much.

What to buy for your master bedroom (mum and dad’s room): 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.

If you really like a “luxury feel” then try our fabulous 400 or 500 Thread Count “Sateen” fabrics, or our 500 or 900 Thread Count sateen, which is made in Portugal for the ultimate luxury bed.
