4. Thread Count:
In Australia, thread count is the number of threads per 10cm2 of fabric. So a blanket with a 600 thread count has 600 threads woven horizontally and 600 threads woven vertically per 10cm2. The general misconception is that the higher the thread count, the better the quality.
This is not always true as threads can be split to create a higher count, which weakens the fabric and affects the quality. Therefore, you should also check for the quality of the material and the manufacturer’s reputation before you commit to a blanket with a thread count higher than 600.
