“Quite Possibly the Best Bed Linen in the World”

It is well known that the higher the thread count the more luxurious the bed linen will feel. But what exactly is thread count?

Simply put – Thread count is the number of threads woven into one square inch of Egyptian or Supima cotton fabric. The threads are woven vertically and horizontally, known in weaving circles as the warp and the weft respectively.

Having long staple and extra-long staple enables our expert weavers in Italy to create fabric with thread counts in the high hundreds.  However, all Cavendish-Tagg™ luxury bed linen is a minimum of 1000 thread counts, making it the most luxurious bed linen possible.

The “bed-linen equation” for the most comfortable sleep is:

High Thread Count + Egyptian or Supima Cotton Yarn = Sweet Dreams

There is nothing quite like slipping into a bed laden with 1000 thread count bed linen. As a rule of thumb, the higher the thread count the more luxurious the feel is. However, this must be coupled with Egyptian or Supima cotton to get the ultimate result.

Thread Count Summary

Thread Counts generally have the following qualities and uses:

120-200 Thread Count

– most suitable for basic domestic use, and quite often associated with low cost linen rentals. Found in many hospitals and budget hotels.

200 Thread Count

– most commonly used as a cool and light cotton, used in some mid ranged hotels during summer months. Used extensively for domestic and contract usage, priced within a budget.

400 Thread Count

– regarded as a good quality fabric. Soft but robust enough to age gracefully.  Found in many good hotels, it has a cool feel and easy to care for.  It maintains brightness and durability. The starting point for a good to very good quality fabric. If made from Egyptian or Supima cotton, the quality is guaranteed.

600 Thread Count

Where exclusive luxury begins! The softness and smoothness becomes apparent. Used by good to excellent boutique hotels and good quality hotel chains worldwide. The fabric will feel cool and last for years for proper care and attention.

800 Thread Count

– usually takes twice as long to produce as its 200-400 counterparts. If made from handpicked long staple Egyptian or Supima cotton, this could take 4 times as long to produce.
