Understanding Thread Counts

A good night’s sleep can make all the difference. Proven to have a positive impact on mental wellbeing for the whole family, it can help to create a calm home and will even support focus at school or in the office.

Snuggling up in-between soft and cosy sheets is the perfect start to a good night’s sleep, so when it comes to getting your eight hours, thread counts, and fabric can play a bigger part than you may realise. Read on and discover all you need to know about thread counts and fabric.

What is a Thread Count?

Simply said, the thread count is used to describe the density of the threads per square inch. When buying your bed linen, all you need to remember is that the higher the number, the smoother, softer and more luxurious the fabric will feel.

Our Thread Counts

200 Thread Count

Bedding with a 200 thread count is less likely to suffer from wear and tear, which is great if you need something long-lasting. Our 200 thread counts are available in soft and snuggly cotton.

400 Thread Count

This thread count has a much finer weave which provides a luxurious feel. Available in sumptuous Egyptian cotton, our 400 thread count styles are perfect if you’re looking for a treat.

Our Fabric


Get the best of both worlds with our easy-to-maintain and comfortable polycotton. Created with a blend of 52% polyester and 48% cotton, the natural comfort of cotton helps to adapt to your body temperature, whilst durable polyester makes it easy to iron and care for.

Brushed Cotton

When creating this fabric, the cotton is brushed on the face side to remove lint and fibres. This leaves a soft feel that helps to trap heat, yet has the breathable properties that cotton lends. Created with 100% cotton, our brushed cotton is soft to the touch and a comforting choice for any bed.

Cotton Percale

Cotton percale is a tighter, medium weight weave that is soft and cooling to the touch, yet retains heat well. As this fabric has a finer weave, colours tend to look highly pigmented and solid. We use 100% cotton for a lovely smooth touch that washes well.

Egyptian Cotton

A premium choice in fabric, Egyptian cotton tends to have stronger, softer and finer cotton threads. Its finish is more flexible and more resistant to stress than most fabrics, and it’s renowned for its luxuriously soft feel. This textile’s cotton also means that it adapts to body heat well and can work all year round.

Cotton Sateen

Made from 100% combed cotton, this fabric is crafted by a different weave to percale and creates a luxurious, lustrous sheen and silky feel.
