Would you be willing to pay $640 for the pricey yet ultra-lux Sferra Milos Egyptian Cotton Sateen sheets, or would you splurge $2500 for a set of sheets made with gold and silk jacquard? Is it even worth it?
Thread counts are measured per square inch both horizontally and vertically; if a manufacturer packs in a higher amount of thinner threads into that square inch, they can get away with giving you the same amount of fabric with a higher thread count and for more money.
But value, much like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder!
