Thread count determines the quality of material, indicated commonly by the number of threads/yarn, warp (lengthwise) and weft (widthwise), is woven per 10 square centimeters. Though less expensive, low thread count sheets (less than 120) usually fell rougher and are more likely to wear through and rip. Higher thread counts (usually 300 and higher) are less prone to shrinkage and have a greater luster and strength whilst feeling soft, and get softer with each wash.
YARN, CONTRUCTION, FINISHING
Our fabrics are sourced from mills which produce long-staple cotton that is spun into a smoother, stronger, finer yarn, allowing more threads per inch, resulting in a luxurious fabric used for Jole Home bed linen.
Most of our cotton sheets are mercerized which is a process that helps plump the cotton fibers bringing out the silky drape, sateen sheen, the soft nap of cotton, enhancing both the feel of the fabric and the quality of the weave.
Jole' Home also offer Percale sheet sets. This type of material is a slightly tighter than the normal materials we use for bed linen. It is medium in weight, with no gloss and washes very well. Our cotton percale sheet sets are made from combed yarns and is less likely to produce fluff or bobbling, yet still offer that percale crisp feel.
Mongolian Cashmere / Wool
Wool of Inner Mongolia is considered to be ‘fibre diamond' in the world of textiles.......
Mongolia is one of the few countries in the world who have the cashmere goats. These goats produce what is considered the finest wool in the world.
The indigenous Mongolian Cashmere goat on average yields cashmere fibers which are 14-16 microns in diameter and lengths reaching 38-43mm. This in turn places Mongolian cashmere at top place in the world in terms of quality.
Some reasons for its high quality are due to the climate these Mongolian goats' lives in. The variety of plants, the severity of the winter climate and the breeding, all contribute to the softness, warmness and fineness of pure Mongolian cashmere wool.
CARE - Cashmere is the finest rare fiber in the world, so caring for these items is a little more than just washing in a machine. Cashmere should be hand washed in luke warm water with soap flakes or liquid soap. Do not twist or rub the piece as this may cause pilling. After washing rinse the piece with cool water ensuring all soap has been washed out. Wring the piece gently to get rid of excess water. Leave the piece to dry naturally out of direct sunlight or heat. Once dry you can iron lightly on a cool setting using a damp cloth or steam.
Following these instructions will ensure your piece of luxury will last for many years to come......... enjoy.
