Why Choose Egyptian Cotton for Your Bedding?

June 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 135

A main source of national income for Egypt is the lush cotton grown on the banks of Nile Delta. Egyptian Cotton is one of the finest, durable natural bedding materials. People throughout the world love the feel and quality offered by this sumptuous fabric. Smooth, silky and extremely soft Egyptian cotton yarns have been cared for from the very first hand picked cotton buds right through to the manufacturing process.

The superior quality of Egyptian Cotton comes from the long staple fibres which are up to a third longer than ordinary cotton fibres, this is essential when weaving high thread count bedding as the super fine yarns need to be extremely robust to stand up to a life time of use and washing. Other cotton sheets simply are not up to the job and will only last half the time. Long staple fibre bedding is treated to prevent snapping and pilling, high quality percale or sateen effect sheets will last much longer and will get even softer with every wash.

When choosing your next duvet cover or fitted sheet, go for a high thread count as this measures the number of yarns woven into a square inch of fabric. The higher the number the softer and finer the cotton is resulting in a premium quality feel and handle. Only Extra Long Staple Cotton can be used to create a yarn that is fine, strong and smooth which can then be woven into luxury bedding.

With all quality products, expertise and craftsmanship is essential, this ensures that all the vital ingredients are brought together at the crucial moment. Choosing the right yarns and type of the weave, the manufacturer creates the luxurious feeling fabric that is to become your favourite Egyptian Cotton Sheet. Attention to the detail when weaving and finishing gives that vital lustrous look and feel. Fabric finishing and sewing gives even the most discerning customer the assurance of quality.

Caring for your new Egyptian Cotton Bedding is essential if you want to get the best out of your sheets and duvet covers. The bottom sheets and pillowcases tend to need the most care as these are the parts of the luxury bed linen that are in the most contact with the body. See below for a few tips and what to look out for:

  • Always follow the manufacturer's wash care label instructions.
  • Check for stains before washing and treat with a special stain remover
  • Always wash your fine bedding on a low temperature, also this will help the environment
  • Always use a low temperature setting when using a tumble drier
  • To prevent excess ironing, iron whilst the sheets are slight damp
  • Wash bedding every week to keep dust mites at bay
