Finest sheets & bedding made from egyptian cotton

When most of us think of cotton, we probably conjure up thoughts and a mental images of the cotton production of old. Yet the cotton we hear so much about these days is "Egyptian cotton". Did you know the two are actually connected?

While the Civil War was being fought in the United States, Europeans had to turn to new sources for their cotton. They invested in Egyptian grown cotton and it became an alternate source for their textile mills. It is interesting to note, the Egyptian cotton of today actually originated from one of the Native American species of cotton. Over time, through cross breeding and Egypt's wonderful growing conditions and climate, Egyptian cotton was born.

What makes Egyptian cotton so special is that the actual staples or fibers of this cotton are extra long and very fine. The extra long staples create a longer continuous yarn or thread that equates to strength and durability. The fineness or smaller diameter of the threads is what gives the fabric softness and the ability to weave more threads into a smaller space.

This is what is known as high thread count. The more threads per square inch help create not only a stronger fabric but one that is also extremely soft and light weight. Higher thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and bedding are less likely to shrink. This is a win, win situation in the world of luxury bedding.

There are several benefits to buying quality sheets and fine linens made from Egyptian cotton. The first benefit is that Egyptian cotton sheets will last for many years when taken care of properly. Even though new sheets and bedding made from Egyptian cotton may feel a bit stiff at first, as they are washed they will become softer and softer to the touch.

Egyptian cotton actually gets better with age. Another bonus is that these quality sheets, if washed properly, will not pill and produce lint like other fabrics can. This is why Egyptian cotton will remain a leader in the luxury bedding textile market.

To be sure you are getting true Egyptian cotton be sure to buy from quality manufacturers. Look for names like Sferra, Peacock Alley, Matouk and Dea to name a few. Whatever brand you choose, you can be sure your sleeping experience will be the better because of Egyptian cotton.
