Aplus bed sheets are simply the best bed sheets your money can buy. Aplus bed sheets are of the same quality you will find in 5 star Hotels around the world. We use only the best materials and machinery to manufacture Aplus bed sheets. Here's why Aplus bed sheets are the best your money can buy...
1. Long Staple Egyptian Cotton
Egyptian Cotton is the gold standard for premium linen across the world. Further at Aplus we use only Long staple Egyptian cotton. When cotton is spun into a thread, the length of an individual thread depends on the quality of the cotton. By using Long Staple Egyptian cotton, we ensure that the threads used to make Aplus bed sheets are the longest possible (between 1.25 and 1.5 inches). Longer threads lead to fewer joints and Fewer joints leads to a softer, stronger and longer lasting product.
2. Single Ply Yarn
The threads mentioned in Step 1 are then spun into a yarn. Aplus BedSheets use single ply yarn which can only be spun from long staple fiber. Single ply yarns have fewer exposed joints leading to a softer and silkier feel as compared to Multi Ply yarns. Single Ply Yarns are also stronger and longer lasting than Multi Ply Yarns.
3. Thread Count
Thread count is defined as the number of threads woven into a square inch of fabric. Aplus bed sheets are made from Single Ply yarn that uses 150 vertical + 150 horizontal threads = 300 Thread Count.
Most brands charge an arm and a leg for high thread counts. A high thread count does not necessarily mean a superior product. In fact, high thread count is often misleading because most products with high thread count use Multi Ply Yarn which is of inferior quality (as explained in Step 2).
For example: A 600 Thread count sheet is usually made from an inferior Multi Ply yarn is actually a 200 Thread count sheet. Surprised?
The 600 Thread count is calculated using the following fraudulent formula:
(Vertical Thread + Horizontal Threads) * Multi Ply yarn = Thread count
(100 vertical + 100 horizontal) * 3 Ply yarn = 600 Thread count.
A 200 thread count sheet made from rough and coarse Multi Ply yarn is thus marketed as a 600 thread count sheet. So, please don't pay an arm and leg for an inferior product having a higher thread count.
Weaving is the process where vertical and horizontal threads interlock to create the BedSheet. Aplus BedSheets are made using the traditional Percale Weave. Percale Weave is one yarn over and one yarn under weave (see picture below). Percale weave leads to a matte finish with crisp and smooth feel. Percale fabric made from long staple Egyptian cotton actually gets softer with every wash!
The last step is finishing where Aplus sheets are made ready for use by singeing (burning) off the bits of yarn that stick out. The end result is a soft, silky and breathable fabric. Aplus bed sheets are made using State of Art Osthoff singe machines which are made in Germany and are considered the finest in the industry.
