Proper weaving and finishing techniques, applied to the right kinds of yarn, are the key ingredients to producing the world’s best textiles.
Thread count indicates the fineness of a fabric. It is measured by counting the number of threads per square inch of fabric, including both the length threads (the warp), and width threads (the weft).
Thread count is often used as a measure of fabric quality for bed linens. Standard cotton thread counts are around 150, while good-quality sheets start at 180. A fabric count of 200 or higher is considered Percale.
As we spend around a third of our life in bed, quality linen should also have good skin-friendly properties. Mrs.Me has chosen NOT to apply the ‘Easy Care’ finish to her bed linen fabrics. ‘Easy Care’ is a chemical finish that prevents textiles from shrinking and wrinkling. This treatment is done with formaldehyde, a harmful substance that will be released during the use of bed linens. So while Mrs.Me duvet covers do crease, they do not contain toxins.
