JARGON GLOSSARY

FLANGE

A flange is the “wing” on a pillow or duvet – the decorative fabric that is attached to the edge where the insert finishes.

INSERT

The insert is the “fluff” of the bed. It’s what you literally “insert” into a duvet cover or pillowcase – the pillow insert and duvet insert respectively. Many inserts are made with goose-down or feathers, but we prefer hypoallergenic down alternative fibers.

LOFT

Loft is the height of the insert. The higher the loft, the fluffier the pillow.

BAFFLE BOX

Without a baffle box design, your duvet would be very lumpy! A Baffle is a small interior wall inside a duvet that prevents the fluffy microfibers from moving around too much and keeps everything in place. The “box” refers to the box pattern that emerges when lots of baffles are sewn into a duvet insert.

WEAVE

Weave is what separates raw cotton (the kind you pick in a field) from the cotton products you know and love. Popular weaves include cable knit, chambray, broadcloth, canvas, chino.

WARP

Vertical yarns

WEFT

Horizontal yarns

LONG STAPLE

Long staple refers to the length of the fibers we weave to make fabric. As a rule, long-staple fibers last longer and break/pill (get scratchy) less often – they’re higher quality all around.

THREAD COUNT

Thread count measures the number of horizontal and vertical threads (warp & weft) woven into a square inch of fabric. Unfortunately, many brands artificially inflate the thread count of their sheets by using short-staple, multi-ply yarns and double or triple counting the number of threads. Because of this trend, we don’t think thread count is a fair metric to use when talking about fabric quality. But more on that HERE on our 40 Winks blog.
