    General Information

    A Haustuch: a real one.

    Even the most shameful cheap bed sheet is provided with the beautiful epithet "Haustuch", in order to thus creep the reputation of care and solidity. The house cloth was a - in former times mostly hand-woven - bed sheet for the everyday life, which was armed against almost every wear by a strengthened center. For this purpose, the number of warp threads had to be increased towards the center - a complex weaving process. Here comes a actually so worked bed sheet in half-twist quality, which is 20% denser in the middle than at the edge.

    Terminus technicus: yarn count or yarn thickness.

    The yarn count is a textile unit of length, we specify it in Nm (number metric), where the higher the number, the finer the yarn. A yarn unit of Nm 100 means that 100 meters of a yarn weigh 1 gram. An additional digit is added if the yarn is twisted from several single yarns, for example Nm 100/3 for a yarn made from three single yarns.
    Another designation is also the yarn number, other measurements are tex, dtex or denier (den). Denier is a textile unit of weight that is now only found in fine pantyhose. It indicates how much 9,000 meters of a yarn weigh: At 15 den, 9,000 meters of the yarn in question weigh 15 grams. Far more common is now the international Tex system, where in each case the weight for 1,000 meters of a yarn are indicated.
