Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet, and the more likely it will wear well-or even soften-over time. Good sheets range anywhere from 200 to 800, although you'll occasionally see numbers over 1,000.
At Janak Handloom, we generally prefer bedsheets having 200-1000 thread counts. And if the bed sheet is having144 thread counts and is peached, only then we provide that quality bed sheet as the fabric becomes soft after peaching.
