24 May Threadcount Converter
Enter the thread count in per 10cm² below to get the value converted to per in²
Thread counts are typically displayed either in the Imperial system of in² or the Metric system of 10cm². Very often, we see thread counts being displayed on the packaging in the Metric system of 10cm² because (for Marketing reasons) it portrays a higher thread count compared to the Imperial measurement (per inch²) and the truth is, shoppers like you usually seek a higher thread count number for sheets. This is why we created this Threadcount Convertor. It is to help shoppers like you compare thread counts more accurately.
Comparing inch² to 10cm²
Let’s say you are comparing thread counts between Sheet A and Sheet B.
Sheet A: $200 bedsheet with 500TC per inch²
Sheet B: $200 bedsheet with 500TC per 10cm²
Immediately, you would think that both options are of the same thread count when in actual fact if you chose Sheet B, you will actually be paying the same amount for a lesser thread count.
Using Our Thread Count Converter
We made conversion less complicated for you. Simply use our Threadcount Converter to convert your thread counts swiftly from 10cm² to in². A good range would be 200 to 400 thread count per inch², whereby 200 is adequate while 400 feels softer.

While thread count matters, the number of plys (strands of yarn) and the type of fabric (Cotton, Linen, or Tencel) affects the quality of sheets too. Now that you have a better understanding of how and why thread counts are being displayed the way they are, you are one step closer to finding that set of sheets to put together your dream bed.
