Cotton has the advantage of being a natural material (unlike polyester), which is best for restful sleep. cotton is a "breathable" material that allows good circulation of body heat during your sleep.
But Egyptian cotton has the additional feature of having long, fine fibers . This detail may seem trivial but it makes all the difference.
The longer the fibers of the cotton, the more the fabric made will be soft and resistant. It is an undeniable guarantee of quality for the manufacture of high-end bed linen . Egyptian cotton represents only a tiny part of the world's textile production and is used for luxury products in bed linen , household linen or clothing.
This superior quality cotton owes its name to its provenance. It has been cultivated along the Nile Valley since the 19th century. Unlike other species of cotton, it is exclusively picked by hand to cause no damage to the fibers and maintain the quality of the fiber.
An Egyptian cotton fiber is twice as long as another variety of cotton which greatly reduces pilling and increases the life of the products.
