Luxury Bed Sheets & Bed Linen with a High Thread Count

A sounder night’s sleep starts with Egyptian cotton percale
– the first choice for some of the world’s most luxurious bedlinen.
So natural and breathable, pure cotton helps regulate body temperature during your sleep cycle, keeping you cool and comfortable all through the night.

What are the Best Luxury Bed Sheets?
When looking for the best luxury bed sheets, it can depend on your own preference for material. You might prefer silk bedding, or in winter, you might prefer cosy flannelette sheets. But one of the most luxurious bed sheet materials is high thread count Egyptian Cotton. Bed sheets with a thread count of 200 and upwards should be your aim when choosing your bed linen.

Why is Luxury Egyptian Cotton Bed Linen the Best?
Woven from the finest combed cotton from the Nile Delta region, Egyptian cotton fibres have a long staple length of 5cm, which gives Egyptian cotton bed linen its distinct feel. Combing removes the shorter, coarser fibres to improve smoothness and strength and this premium cotton spins into finer, softer, more durable threads. Luxury Egyptian cotton bed sheets also boast better breathability than other materials and lesser grade cotton. This means it will help to regulate your temperature as you sleep and prevent you from overheating.

The Importance of Thread Count
Thread count is the number of threads in a square inch of woven fabric. The higher the thread count, the tighter and denser the weave, and the softer and silkier the feel.

What is the Best Thread Count in Bed Sheets?
In most cases, the higher a thread count is, the more luxurious the bed linen becomes. But it’s not always the case that a higher thread count means better sheets. In some instances, thread count can be artificially increased without genuinely improving the quality of the bed linen. But with Scotts of Stow’s Luxury Legends range of bedding, you can rest assured that you’ll always get the finest quality bed linen and our high thread count bed sheets are designed for an indulgent night’s sleep.

When you’re looking for luxurious sheets and bedding, a thread count of 200 should be your starting point. The higher you go from here, the more luxurious your bed linen will be.

200 Thread Count – High Quality: To qualify as a percale, a fabric must have a thread count of at least 200 threads per square inch. Our 200 thread count Egyptian cotton percale bed linen feels smooth, crisp and cool next to your skin. Available in White, Ivory, Oyster, Thyme, Pink or Platinum. Extra deep 38cm fitted sheet only available in White, Ivory and Platinum.

400 Thread Count – Luxurious: With twice as many threads per square inch as our standard percale, luxury 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sateen bed linen is double the density and its sateen weave creates a smoother, cooler and silkier feel. Available in White, Ivory, Oyster, Duck Egg, Mulberry, Sand, Pewter or Platinum.

600 Thread Count – Opulent: Three times as many threads per square inch than our standard percale, the high thread count sateen weave gives this fabric both a lovely drape and fine lustre. Available exclusively online in White, Ivory or Platinum.

1000 Thread Count – Exceptional Quality: Our ultimate quality Egyptian cotton percale offers an unrivalled feel against your skin. Ultra-smooth, ultra-soft, this deluxe sateen woven bed linen is truly indulgent and worthy of the world’s most prestigious 5-star hotels. Available in White, Ivory or Platinum.
