When you hear someone mention Egyptian cotton sheets you immediately think luxurious softness, and when you are snuggled up between these sheets that’s exactly what you will feel. Your bed is your oasis, a place where you can escape from the rest of the world to relax, read, dream and just enjoy some ME time.
An Egyptian cotton sheet set is exactly what you need to make your time between the sheets that much more enjoyable and comfortable. Regular cotton percale sheets are also nice, but pale in comparison to the lavishness Egyptian cotton has to offer, and remember, you deserve only the best!
Egyptian cotton has a fiber length of approximately 3/8 of an inch which is important when it comes to the softness and durability of your sheets. The higher the thread count, the softer the sheets will be, and the more expensive. You will find that many high thread count sheets are made from Egyptian cotton because of its unusual fiber length qualities making for a very soft material.
Sheets made from Egyptian cotton used to be found only in high-end stores, but that is no longer the case. Not only can you find Egyptian cotton bed sheets in almost any department store, but they can be found online at incredible prices.
One thing to be aware of when shopping for Egyptian sheets in department stores is the actual Egyptian cotton content. Read the fine print on the package carefully and make sure you are not getting a blend of polyester and Egyptian cotton material. Only 100% pure Egyptian cotton will do and once you have slept in them you will know what I mean.
When it comes to Egyptian cotton sheets you pay for what you get, higher quality generally means you will a pay little more for your sheets. But do shop around as prices tend to vary.
