Not all cotton bedding is equal, more and more of our customers are now choosing higher thread count luxury bed linen and one of the most popular is the 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding range.
The Sheridan brand
Sheridan is made from a superior grade of hotel quality cotton sateen and not from the more luxurious Egyptian cotton we have all come to love and appreciate for its soft, cool and crisp texture.
There is nothing finer than slipping between the sheets when your bedding has just been washed. The long staple fibres make this a technical marvel, you need this extra length in order to spin the cotton that much finer, the results are clear for all to see with a super crisp or silky satin feel to your bedding.
There are other areas in the world that produce extremely high quality cotton but Egyptian cotton has become a brand in its own right. The conditions found in Egypt are superb and are just right for a consistently high yield every year that is why you can always rely on getting a good quality product.
Why choose 1000 thread count bedding?
What makes it superior to other grades of Bedding? Well, cotton is sold in different grades and the more expensive the bedding the better quality the cotton that is used in the manufacturing process.
Take for example our Peter Reed 1000 Thread Count Egyptian cotton bedding range.
This awesome fabric uses choice select crops and utilises the finest mills in Egypt to produce that fabric which is then shipped off to their Lancashire factory to seamstresses using age old techniques to hand craft the finest bedding you will find anywhere in the world.
Only found in the best shops on the high street this bedding is all about attention to detail and quality and commitment to customer satisfaction.
Not the cheapest bed linen in the world but you certainly receive what you pay for in terms of quality and luxury.
More and more bedding is sold as Hotel Quality. What is hotel quality and why is this important? Another very good question, hotels have over the years have used a variety of different fabrics and thread counts and spent millions developing the best bedding fabrics to use.
They have key indicators such as washing, drying and ironing capabilities to find out how things react and how quickly they can be laundered and used again.
Customer experience is also vital in this process as good feedback and a fantastic sleep will make their customers into loyal ones that return year after year.
Brand loyalty is very important in the hotel sector so if it is good for them it is certainly very good for the domestic market.
Cost price is also an issue so getting the right mix of longevity and quality is vital for the success of the best hotels in the world.
Our Sheridan Hotel Quality 1000 Thread Count Cotton Sateen bedding is a very good example of this, strong and extremely robust whilst giving you the best mix of sumptuous cotton you will ever have the pleasure of sleeping on.
Cheaper than Egyptian cotton but no less as luxurious and one of the best high thread count luxury bed linens on the UK market today.
Preparing cotton the right way
As cotton is a natural product, the quality used to make the yarns is paramount in creating high quality woven bedding. Growing conditions like the weather, grade of soil and ideal temperature conditions effect the outcome of the plant type and quality.
The care with which the cotton is prepared before being made into a yarn that can be woven all go to determine the quality of the bedding that you sleep on.
A lot of the traditional techniques have gone and only a hand full of factories still manufacturer Egyptian cotton bedding in the old ways.
