Thread count is a measure of the coarseness or fineness of fabric. It is measured by counting the number of threads contained in one square inch of fabric or one square centimeter, including both the length (warp) and width (weft) threads. The thread count is the number of threads counted along two sides (up and across) of the square inch, added together. It is used especially in regard to cotton linens such as bed sheets, and has been known to be used in the classification of towels.
Thread count is often used as a measure of fabric quality, the higher of the TC , the higher the quality of the cloth, but other than that to get the actual quality, the yarn used to weave fabric must be qualified. Usually we can see a quality fabric with the feel and look at the whole product.
