Updated Answer: There is a HUGE difference in quality. 300 thread count feels like sandpaper compared to 1500 thread count sheets. The higher the thread count, the longer lasting and more luxerious the sheet. Thread count is how many threads you will find in an inch of fabric - the more thread, the thicker the sheet. The thicker the sheet, the more sturdy and longer lasting. And, the feel is amazing - super soft and luxerious. You know those exclusive hotels that charge $5000 a night? They use 1500 thread count sheets on their beds.

Old Answer:

There isn't much difference in quality with a thread count over 300. You would next look to the material that the sheet is made out of. Pima cotton may be one of the softest and most durable.

Is microfiber in bed linen the same as 600 thread cotton?

No. Microfiber thread count cannot be compared to the thread count in cotton. A 1500 thread count bed sheet of Microfiber might not be half as heavy in weight or thick enough as a 600 thread count cotton sheet, but it will be far softer than a cotton 600 count. It is similar to comparing apples and oranges. Microfiber has a thread count of it's own and tends to remain thinner, although it gets softer, with higher thread counts. Cotton on the other hand, tends to get thicker and heavier as the thread count goes higher, so a 1500 count sheet in cotton might weigh like a blanket.

Is 600TC cotton sheets better than 400TC Egyptian cotton sheets?

We searched on "thread count of sheets" and "linens buying guide" and had to rip past dozens of sites trying to sell sheets before we found your answer. Finally, we came to rest upon this definition: thread count is the number of horizontal and vertical threads in one square inch of fabric. Thread count in sheets can range from 80 to 700, although most stores sell sheets that range from 180 to 320. In general, the higher the thread count, the softer the fabric feels, but that doesn't necessarily mean the sheets will last longer (and sheets with a higher thread count are usually more expensive). One linens department manager says thread counts above 380 are "kind of a farce." Manufacturers twist two threads in a way that lets them double the sheet's thread count. Recently, many linens manufacturers have touted thread count as the best way to choose a sheet. But others point out that the quality of the fibers and finish are more important to the sheet's comfort and durability. In fact, sheets made of linen, flannel, or jersey (those trendy "T-shirt" sheets) have low thread counts due to the type of fabric. A high thread count would eliminate part of the appeal of these sheets. According to Consumer Reports, cotton and cotton-blend sheets with a thread count of 180 to 200 stand up to wear and tear and provide satisfactory comfort.
