Here are some specs for a shirting fabric

Fiber content: 65% polyester, 35% cotton
Weight: 170 g / m² (+ / - 5%)
Thread count:
- Warp: min. 40 threads/inch; max.: 44 threads/inch
- Weft: min. 20 threads/inch; max: 24 threads/inch
Width: Min: 152 cm
Color: #28717b
Is it common for a shirting fabric to have 2 times more threads in warp?
Are hexadecimal color codes often used for fabric color reference?
Thanks for all the information you share with us
