The science behind getting the best night’s sleep of your life!
Evidence of spun cotton dates as far back as 7,000 years and it seemed to be made in the exact way it is spun today! Cotton was first spun by machinery in england in 1730. The industrial revolution in england and the invention of the cotton gin in the u.s. paved the way for the important place cotton holds in the world today.
The science bit
Cotton is a soft, fluffy fibre almost entirely made of cellulose that grows in a protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plant. Being among the finer fibres available naturally, cotton breathes, so cotton sheets feel cool against your skin. It is an eco-friendly, renewable resource which provides a livelihood for millions of people worldwide. Fine linens begin with fine cotton, and the quality of the cotton depends on the length of the individual fibres, or staples – the longer the staple, the better the cotton, allowing the cotton to be spun into a finer-textured thread with more tensile strength, and woven into a softer, smoother and more supple fabric.
What exactly is thread count?
Thread count simply refers to how many threads – vertically and horizontally – are woven into one square inch of fabric. With finer threads, such as those produced with pure egyptian cotton, more threads can be woven into each square inch, which produces in turn, a finer, softer and more flexible material.
In general, the higher the thread count, the higher the quality of the sheets. The thread count of basic or standard cotton is around 150 – good quality sheets start at 180 thread count and are considered percale. The majority of Foxford bedlinen is woven into 300 thread count.
While the thread count is important, other features are equally as important to measuring comfort, quality, and value. This includes the type of cotton, the feel of the fabric and the nature of the finishing process.
Types of cotton
Percale is a closely woven, plain weave, spun fabric made from both carded and combed yarns and percale sheeting is the finest available. The high thread count – above 180 – gives the fabric a soft, silk-like feel.
Sateen is weave construction that has more yarn surface on the face of the cloth than other basic weaves giving a softer and more lustrous look resembling satin.
Designed by us
We do our own designs, from cut and fabric right down to prints and graphics. We research the leading trends at least 6 months before manufacturing our new season linen. We gather with our designers for many meetings to go over the next year’s bedlinen season and to make sure our designs are as consistently comfortable as they are stylish as previous years. We travel around europe making notes as to what will be the most popular interior trends for that coming year and together with our designers, we responsibly source the highest quality percale and sateen cotton available.
Our designs range from prints, plain to the always popular hotel collection. Once we are completely up to date with the designs you want to see and have in your bedroom we get to work with our manufacturing team and begin to create the Foxford bedlinen 2019 collection!
Our team is hands on right from the drawing board stage of planning to the first piece of finished fabric that comes off the loom. You can see the care in the detail of your product.
That is where the difference lies with foxford. Every detail is just so, you will notice the difference.
