We’re about to create the perfect Friday night that includes the best bed sheets in the world, Netflix, and ultra-fine ring spun yarn. Yep, you heard us right! Let us set the stage for you.
Picture this; it’s a cold, snowy Friday night. The last thing you want to do is go out and shiver while you attempt to socialize. So, instead of freezing to death, you’re going to order a pizza, pour a glass of wine, hop on your bed that is outfitted with the best bed sheets ever (that just so happen to use ultra-fine ring-spun yarn), turn on Netflix and cuddle up with your SO. I mean, that sounds pretty amazing, right?
Let’s talk yarn. We’ve already mentioned it a few times so far, and you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. We’ll break it down for you. At Thomas Lee, we use ultra-fine ring-spun yarn, made from 100% American grown Supima cotton, for our sheets. To make the best bed sheets, we have to ensure we’re using the best yarn.
“Simply put, the finer the yarn, the finer the fabric,” stated Thomas Lee Sheets owner, Elizabeth Zook. “To weave a true 500 thread count cotton bed sheet, we must use an ultra-fine, thus ultra-strong and silky yarn made with the world’s best cotton, which is Supima cotton grown in the Southwest United States.”
What in The World Does “Ring-Spun” Mean?
Like many things in life, how yarn is produced makes all the difference.
“Faster isn’t always better, especially when it comes to yarn production,” stated Elizabeth. “The 100% Supima cotton yarn we use is produced on old-fashioned ring spinning technology, which is contrary to the notion that the most modern manufacturing equipment makes the best products.”
Ring spinning is an older, slower method of manufacturing yarn, but it is what’s needed to provide high-quality cotton fabric used in the best bed sheets. We never take shortcuts in our products, and we always strive for production. Our customers deserve the best.
Only with ring spinning can we achieve the extraordinary fine, strong single-ply 100% Supima cotton yarn that goes into every Thomas Lee sheet. Before you know it, you’ll see what a difference ultra-fine ring-spun yarn makes.
