Is Egyptian Cotton Bedding For You?

The 100% Egyptian Cotton Deluxe Reversible Hotel Comforter Set is available from Amazon.com.

When choosing new bedding there are some important things to consider. Egyptian Cotton is a great choice to make and here is why.

Why 100% Cotton?

Nature has given cotton attributes that makes it a smoother, softer and more comfortable choice. It’s “breathable,” so cotton sheets never feel sticky against your skin. Cotton sheets release soil easily, so they wash clean. Cotton sheets are perfect for any season providing year-round comfort. The fiber provides cool comfort in the summer and holds a layer of warm air in the cold weather. They also have the highest wear resistance of all the principal textile fibers; in fact, they become softer with repeated washings and use. It is also now generally accepted that cotton is kinder to the skin of eczema sufferers or people with sensitive skin, unlike the fibers in wool, nylon and other man-made fabrics, which tend to irritate the skin.

Why Egyptian Cotton?

A fine, lustrous, long staple cotton grown in Egypt. Long staple cottons are more expensive than the commonly available cottons, because they are synonymous with quality and have a higher thread count.

What is Thread Count?

Thread count is the number of horizontal and vertical threads in one square inch of fabric. High-quality sheets have at least 180 threads per square inch and are referred to as Cotton Percale. The higher the thread count, the softer the “hand” or feel of the sheet, and the more pill-resistant it is. The quality and feel of a sheet depends on the fiber the fabric is made from and the number of threads woven per inch. The higher the thread count, the softer and more durable the sheet.
