Egyptian cotton is produced from the fertile soil found along the River Nile in Egypt. The nutrients of this soil are used to make strong fibers of cotton. Also known as staples, the longer the fiber is, the better its quality is, in terms of the thread count. This high quality material is used to make Egyptian cotton bedding, towels and a variety of other things. A large number of reputed brands use this fabric to produce fine quality bed sheets.
Usually used in hotels, bed and breakfasts, and holiday sets, Egyptian cotton bedding offers a smooth and crisp finish to the bedding which in return enhance the appearance. And the best part is that it is easier to maintain and allows smoother ironing than ordinary cotton.
In addition to this, there are plenty of other advantages which make Egyptian cotton one of the most preferred fabrics for manufacturing bed sheets and related items.
If you happen to touch the bedding made of this fabric, you will realize that it is very soft and smooth to touch. Unlike the products made up of cotton mixture, lying on the bed layered with Egyptian cotton bed sheets offers more comfort and relaxation.
There are sufficient amounts of holes or spaces in between the stitches which helps in smooth airing or ventilation. Unlike the cotton blends, these materials do not absorb your body heat and don't cause any discomfort. The only issue that you would have to tolerate is related to the wrinkles which looks untidy in the morning when you awake from your sleep.
There is always a question of durability when it comes to bedding and bed sheets. It is because after some time, the fabric starts wearing out and begins to lose its original luster. Quality of the material may deteriorate over time and it may start getting torn from the edges or the like.
There are several online stores that sell high quality bed sheets and bedding at prices to suit your budget. You can find a wonderful range of 200, 400, 540, 600, 1000, and 1200 thread count. Just use the internet and search for different colors and sizes of bed sheets.
