What is Egyptian Cotton?

 

 

Egyptian-grown cotton is known for its ability to create extra-long staples, or fibers. These fibers can produce thread or yarns that are thinner than other cottons because of their longer length. This yarn is smaller in diameter yet stronger than other cottons. Smaller yarn means that more threads per square inch of material can be used to create a more luxurious fabric which is stronger, lighter in weight, yet breathes well.Please bear in mind that the feel of bed linen created from Egyptian grown cotton is a bit harder than other cottons when the bedding is new. However, with every wash, Egyptian cotton duvet covers, sheets and pillowcases become softer and softer. Like a fine wine, Egyptian cotton bedding definitely improves with age and, unlike many products, you will prize it more and more with time and use.If properly cared for, bed linen produced from Egyptian cotton can last for decades
