This afternoon I've seen bed sheets with threadcounts in the 700 region. How is this calculated?

I guess this is how the very large numbers I've seen for bedsheets were obtained.Yarn number has nothing to do with thread count. Most good broadcloths are made of two-ply yarn. Many good broadcloths have a construction of 144 warp yarns x 76 weft yarns per square inch. That is a total of 220 yarns per square inch. If those are two ply yarns, some makers will then say that there are really 440 yarns per inch. It is really all just so much B.S.
