Today's email carries another Thursday Giveaway, but a week ago we covered Thread Count Fraud at Bed Bath and Beyond. That email traveled the email-sphere and came back to us with word from Karl Spilhaus, the CEO of the National Textile Association:

Before that the importers labeled two ply etc. as double the thread count while the guys we represented did it honestly so our guys were put at an unfair disadvantage. Gov't published a clarification and then these suits started which are a good thing...."
We love it and we've now added that email to the archive below. Stay on the pulse: blog + email. If you're not signed up, go for it right now (on the upper left nav)...AT EMAIL ARCHIVE Jan 2-25, 2008
