THREAD COUNT & FABRIC WEIGHT
Thread Count Number of threads in a square inch of a fabric is called "Thread Count"

Threads are counted length wise (warp) and width wise (weft) threads

Our products range from 132 to 400 thread counts

Higher thread count results in a denser and smoother fabric

Weight (GSM) Brushed Cotton (Flannelette), Jersey and Linen fabrics are not evaluated by thread count, instead their quality is measured in GSM (Grams Per Square Metre).

The higher the GSM the heavier the cloth is

*The thread count or the weight does not tell the thickness and feel of the fabric. Fabrics with different fibers, weaves and finishes appear and feel differently.
