Marketing aside, can you explain how you come up with a 800 thread count?
Hi – 800 thread count = 800 threads per square inch ! Yes, you can take the product to a lab and they would be able to count 800 threads in 1 square inch. We have used the best-in-class, finest yarns which almost no other retailer in US can afford to use in making this “suitable weight” product as well. The fact is higher the thread count, more number of threads, which results in heavier fabric. This is still a heavy fabric, if you compare it to lets say a 400tc or 600tc sheet fabric in the market, this is a lighter & finer weight fabric because of the superfine yarns used by us to weave this fabric. It is made from long staple cotton fibers, spun on compact yarn spinning machines. No other high thread count sheets in the US has specs like our 800tc 100% Pure Cotton sheet – and this statement is not a marketing statement.
does the elastic will put the sheets on the mattress well in place?
Haha fun you ask. That was my number one requirement, since our previous set you had to remake every day & even then I woke up tangled in fitted sheet. Yes it stays in place very well. They are very comfortable & soft. Plan to order 2-3 more sets.
Do the pillow cases have the envelope enclosure?
These have regular opening, but well sized pillowcase to cover your pillow. Thanks!
How do you wash/dry these sheets?
Just warm water wash and bulky item dry, if you have it. They’ll come out with some wrinkles, but not as many as lower thread count cotton sheets. They’d look better ironed, but once you make the bed no one will know.
Can we only buy king size fitted sheets instead of the sets?
Hi – We only sell this in sets and not open stock sheets. Thanks
