Thread Count, Egyptian Cotton & Eastern Accents Tessa Collection

March 1st, 2013 | Posted by Blind Advantage

Hi friends!

I thought I should blog about something that we at Blind Advantage find extremely informative. Also, I’d like to say that I, myself, as a consumer feel that this is something you would want to know. Learning about thread count and Egyptian Cotton qualities have helped me make more informed choices. We advise our customers to forget about the ‘almighty thread count’ and focus more on the quality of the fabric. Never rely on a high thread count to determine the quality of your sheet set. Just because you are informed on how many threads are woven into a square inch of fabric – that does not indicate the quality at all! Thread count alone is not enough information to determine the quality.

So what factors are involved in determining the quality of a sheet set? Well, for starters the type of the fabric, secondly the country where the fabric originates from and thirdly the reputation of the manufacturer. There are definitely more things to consider but those would be our top 3. When purchasing Egyptian Cotton make sure that the label says 100{a830c8410cd6147ef9eb6e7cc08b64935ca42eaa876e81ed07ca91926b5771ac} Egyptian Cotton or you can be mislead. The Standards allow for Egyptian Cotton to be advertised in a way that as long as a minimum of 10{a830c8410cd6147ef9eb6e7cc08b64935ca42eaa876e81ed07ca91926b5771ac} Egyptian Cotton is in the product then it can be considered Egyptian Cotton! This was a shock to us as well, until we became an Authorized Eastern Accents Dealer. Our lovely sales representative brought these topics to our attention.. which was one of many the deciding factors in welcoming Eastern Accents into our showroom.

Which brings me to our next topic!…
