So What Makes this Fabric so Incredible?
Benefits of Giza Cotton
Giza cotton sheets offer numerous advantages for problem sleepers as well as those individuals seeking something luxurious. Read on for the benefits associated with 100% Giza Egyptian Cotton sheets:
i. Superior Feel
When it comes to selecting sheets, it’s no secret that feel is everything. After all, no one wants to sleep (or do anything else!) in a bed that isn’t soft and pleasing to the touch. The highest graded fiber among all Egyptian cottons, Giza boasts a uniformity index of 88.5, meaning the material contains few irregularities. As a result, Giza Egyptian Cotton feels smooth and silky.
ii. Cleaner Cotton
One of the many reasons customers favor Giza Egyptian Cotton is that it’s cleaner than other varieties. No, that doesn’t mean it’s been pre-washed. Instead, Giza Egyptian Cotton is harvested with special cultivation techniques, so it doesn't need to bleached or brushed like other fabrics. In other words, the cotton doesn’t undergo excess processing that could damage or weaken the fiber.
iii. Reduced Pilling
Few things are more annoying than buying an expensive cotton bedding set only to have it pill after the first few washes. Not only does pilling affect the appearance of your sheets, but it also feels scratchy and uncomfortable against the skin. Because Giza Egyptian Cotton features long fibers, there’s more surface area for the threads to grab on to one another. Stronger threads last longer and are less likely to pill or tear with washing.
