What is thread count and why should (or shouldn't) I be concerned with it?
The phrase Thread Count (TC) refers to the number of threads per inch within a fabric. In the world of bedding, the phrase is most often used to help describe the quality of a cotton sheet. A thread count in the 150-250 range is generally considered sufficient. A higher thread count results in a thicker sheet, adding strength to a fabric while usually resulting in a softer, silkier feel.
That said, judging a sheet by its thread count is sort of like judging a house by the number of bedrooms it has.

Not surprisingly, a 200 TC sheet of fine quality will usually feel much more luxurious than a 1,500 TC sheet of budget quality (and it will also wear much better).
