The thicker the hotel linen, the better the quality? - A secret that many manufacturers refuse to disclose


Faced with this question, many people have different answers: some people think that the thickness is enough, and some people think that the light and thin are comfortable. In short, the thickness of the fabric cannot be used to judge the quality of the bedding.

Today, the editor of the hotel linen network will talk to you about the thickness of hotel bedding fabrics. The thickness and thickness of fabrics are mainly related to the following factors:

Yarn density of fabric

Yarn count: refers to the thickness of the yarn, the length of 1 gram of yarn is called yarn count. Generally, the British count is used. For example, if a 1 gram yarn is made 30 meters long, it means 30 counts, or 30S. The smaller the number, the thicker the yarn, the larger the number, the thinner the yarn, the thinner the woven cloth, and the softer and more comfortable the cloth is.

For example: 21 yarn fabrics (the most common thickened and brushed fabrics are rare on the market at present), and they feel thick! And 40 yarns are generally used for spring and autumn bedding, and 60 yarns are more suitable for summer use! In fact, yarn weaving The higher it is, the higher the required raw material quality and craftsmanship will be!

Density: refers to the total number of warp and weft yarns per square inch (2.54*2.54 square centimeters). For example, 12868 is 128*68, which means 128 warp yarns and 68 weft yarns in 1 square inch, density=128+68=196.

For example: the same 40S fabric, the higher the density, the tighter the yarn arrangement is required! For example, the 14476 fabric is more delicate and thicker than the 12868 fabric. Therefore, the quality of the 14476 fabric is not the same as that of the 12868 fabric, and the price is much more expensive, at least double!

Fabric processing

We have seen some high-quality pure cotton fabrics on the market, and the gloss of the surface is very good. This is because of the mercerization treatment.    

If there is no mercerized cotton fabric, the surface of the yarn will be hairy, and the woven fabric will of course feel thicker, and the fabric without mercerization will have high shrinkage and color fastness. .    

Sometimes you can't feel it intuitively, the fabric feels very thin, or the name of the bedding sounds good, so you can judge the quality of it; it depends on the raw materials, yarn count, density, softness, etc. Gloss, craft level, printing and dyeing technology, etc.

Therefore, it cannot be said in general that the thinner the fabric, the worse its quality!
