Thread Thickness and Thread count - how it determines the ‘hand’ of the fabric

The thickness and transparency of the fabric itself is determined by the thickness of the thread and how many threads are woven per inch (thread count).

This is the basics that will determine the weight/hand of the fabric ( in addition to the weave type, but we will be discussing basic weave here).

Ex: You can have a very fine thread, with a high thread count and it will be translucent, but not see-through and light in weight/hand.

Or, you can have thick thread and low thread count per inch and this will make the fabric heavy but see - through.
