1. Long fibers
They can be spun into stronger and finer yarns, thus producing extremely soft and flexible fabrics that do not fray.
Shorter fibers can come out of the fabric, resulting in a thicker, weaker fabric that frays easily.
2. Single layer yarns
Single layer yarns
We exclusively use single-ply cotton yarn because it produces finer and stronger yarns, and therefore, sheets are lightweight, very soft and extremely durable.
Multilayer yarns are a group of weaker fibers that are twisted to create a false consistency. They mainly use shorter, lower quality cottons, resulting in thicker and heavier yarns.
3. Fine threads
Fine single-ply, long-staple cotton yarn is responsible for the most sumptuous and palatable sheets and is therefore the Needo's preferred material.
To explain how the type of yarn influences a fabric, imagine a potato sack and its texture and now think of a suit to work with. The finer the thread, the softer and lighter the resulting fabric is.
4. Thread count
Cuando hablamos del número de hilos (300 percal, 500 satén) nos referimos al número de hilos tejidos juntos en una pulgada cuadrada de tela (2,54 cm de tela). A medida que el número de hilos aumenta, la tela se vuelve más suave, más densa y más caliente.
¡Pero atención! Un mayor número de hilos no significa necesariamente una sábana de mayor calidad. Muchos fabricantes suelen falsear los recuentos de hilos por encima de 500. No cuentan cada hilo, si no cada capa hilada en hilos de menor calidad para reforzar la sábana.
The weaving of a fabric is exactly the end result; how it looks and how it feels. At the Needo we work two fabrics in 100% long-staple cotton, however, the result is two very different fabrics in texture. The calico and satin.
Percale 300 threads
The percale is made following a structure in which one thread is arranged above and another below, resulting in a matte finish fabric with a sensation of freshness and lightness. Its exceptional softness and durability improves with each wash, without weighing it down. They are our lightest, most breathable and highly versatile products.
500 thread count satin
The structure of satin consists of one thread below and three above. In this way there is more surface of thread exposed, which makes the satin silky smooth and has such a characteristic luminosity. Satin is more tightly woven and heavier than calico, making it warmer and softer.
