Thread count is the number of threads woven lengthwise and crosswise into a square inch of sheet fabric. High thread count creates a tighter weave, resulting in a softer, durable and more luxurious sheet. Luxury sheets with thread counts over 200 have a soft, lustrous finish and feel "silky" to the touch.

Men's magazines such as Maxim suggest that merely possessing such sheets will cause women to swoon.
