This is a very interesting question, Ingrid. I hope to get some answers here too. IN Denmark, the ONS don't put fabric counts, instead they put 17 thread, 10 thread, etc. So, I hope someone can give the count equivalent to threads.

As I understand it the count is the number of threads per inch (roughly 2.5cm). Therefore, the higher the count the smaller the stitching!

Please somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

Hi there!

Yes 10 threads per cm is the same as 25 threads per inch. As CathE said, there is 2.5 cm per inch therefore 25 threads per inch divided by 2.5 cm per inch equals 10 threads per cm.

I'm assuming in Denmark you use the metric system, then they are indicating the number of threads per cm. Even though we use the metric system here in Canada, our proximity to USA and the majority of publications being from there, our fabrics are labeled in count but it means threads to the inch.

Hope I helped, not confused the situation any further.
