So, basically everything we thought we knew about thread-count is a lie. Yep, this news blew our minds too. Heres how it works: A typical 250-thread count sheet is woven together with 125 vertical threads and 125 horizontal threads. But, in a sheet that is labeled with a higher thread-count, the manufacturer twists numerous lower-quality threads together to beef up the count. The result is a dense, scratchy sheet that will likely pill after just a few washesand you probably paid extra for it. Thats shady business right there. While were on the topic of paying extra, dont even look twice at those Egyptian cotton sheets. The Cotton Egypt Association estimates 90 percent of sets labeled Egyptian cotton are fakes, meaning they were probably made somewhere like, say New Jersey, and not the fertile lands of Egypt as the label would lead you to believe. We cant just leave you with all this gloomy news and expect you to return to your bed full of impostor sheets without doing something about it. Luckily, MacDonalds Percale Authenticity50 sheets are made seed-to-stich in the United States. The cotton is grown in California, spun in Georgia, and woven in the Carolinas.
