600: Here is where the exclusive end of quality begins, made possible by the use of compressed air technology in the weaving process. It is a beautiful lustrous, uniform, soft and very smooth fabric.
800-1000: Ultimate luxury and pure indulgence with an event greater luster and a fuller fabric. 

The right fabric
Choosing the 'right' fabric really depends on personal preference and the effect you're looking for in your hotel rooms.
• Percale or super percale is a woven, plain weave, spun fabric made from both carded and combed yarns. It is generally only found in high thread-count fabrics which gives the fabric a soft, silk-like feel. Percale gives a fabric strength meaning it will last longer through multiple washes - perfect for hotel usage.
Sateen is weave construction that has more threads on the top surface than others, resulting in a softer look with a sheen resembling satin. Cotton sateen sheets tend to be softer than those with a Percale weave so it's a matter of preference which to choose. 

Washing information
Once you've chosen your linen, you want to ensure it stays in good condition and lasts. Have a read through washing instructions by your supplier to get the best out of your products.
