Ultra-lovely colors and a smooth touch define AQ Textiles Egyptian cotton sheets with a thread count of 1000. Another thing that distinguishes them—thanks to the marketing practices of big retailers, TJ Maxx, Macy’s and others—is that higher thread count is considered an indicator of sheet quality. However, new information suggests that sheet manufacturers and retailers have allegedly overstated their sheet quality and wrongly extracted a higher price tag from unaware consumers.
Were You Duped by Linen Retailers?
The retailer thread count scam involves the counting of each strand in a “piled yarn” as opposed to one yarn itself. Per industry standards, each should be counted as one thread not constituting separate strands. It is alleged that consumers may have been duped and have been paying a higher price for an inferior product.
