Why Egyptian Cotton is the Go-To Material for Sheets


Pure Parima Certified Egyptian Cotton

It’s no secret that the sheet market is large and varied, with bedding store shelves containing everything from silks to satins, natural fabrics to synthetics. However, one material has stood the test of time as the go-to material for bedding. A top choice for generations, Egyptian cotton sheets are made with exceptionally fine long-staple yarn. Harvested in the fertile Nile River Valley, these cotton fibers are at once soft and durable. The result is that sleepers can rest easy no matter the temperature or time of year. Keep reading to learn more about Egyptian cotton and discover why customers consistently choose this bedding option over the competition.

Hand Picked Plant

Unlike lesser fabrics, true Egyptian cotton is grown and picked by hand in the fertile Nile River Valley. This differentiates it from regular cotton, which is harvested in other areas with the aid of machines. As a result of its careful handling, the Egyptian cotton fibers stay long and strong for years to come. No matter how many times you wash your Egyptian cotton sheets or pillowcases, you don’t have to worry about the fibers breaking down, pilling, or coming apart in the laundry. On the other hand, short-staple cotton tends to suffer more stress, leading to a weaker yarn that splices regularly. If you want a soft and durable sheet, Egyptian cotton is the natural choice.

Long Staple Fibers

Shorter-staple cotton simply doesn’t produce the best yarn. Generally 1 ⅜ inches in length or longer, extra-long staple Egyptian cotton is at once softer and more durable. The result is a stronger, smoother, and more luxurious set of sheets without fiber ends that stick up from the yarn’s surface. Additionally, long-staple cotton is more flexible, a fact that boosts its longevity. When you opt for Egyptian cotton, count on enjoying smoother, softer sheets that hold their shape and structure without snagging or pilling.

Beautifully Breathable

Tell us if this sounds familiar. Rather than sleeping soundly and waking up refreshed, you jolt upright in the middle of the night tangled in a pile of sweat-soaked sheets. Whether you suffer from night sweats or are simply a hot sleeper, the bedding material you select can make all the difference. With high-end Egyptian cotton, the greater airflow allows heat and moisture to pass through rather than collecting around your skin. Warm yet breathable, Egyptian cotton is perfect for all seasons and will keep you just as cozy during a summer heatwave as a winter blizzard.
