The Myth About Egyptian Cotton & Thread Count

When searching for quality bed linens, one of the most preferred materials is Egyptian cotton. While, Egyptian cotton is quite popular among the lovers of luxury, there is a popular myth surrounding it that it is only grown in Egypt. Another popular myth about the quality of bed sheets is that higher thread count is the only criteria for determining the quality of bed sheets. Let’s find the reality in this informative post, brought to you by KAMASH-the premier store to buy luxury bed sheets online.

Fact 1: Egyptian cotton is basically, a name used to describe the seed, which can be grown anywhere in the world; it doesn’t mean: cotton grown exclusively in Egypt. It produces extra long staple cotton, which in its purest state can create the highest quality fabrics that provide exceptional hand and durability.  These days, many companies fool the customers by labeling any type of cotton grown in Egypt as Egyptian cotton. Your linen could be made of a lesser grade, cotton and therefore be a lesser quality product. So, always buy your luxury bed sheets from a reputed luxury home linen store, like KAMASH. All the products you find on this online store are sourced from some of the most reputed brands in the world.

Ultimately, Egyptian cotton does not always mean superior quality. It is important to consider other factors as well, like the thread count, base fiber and the size and quality of the yarns. Talking of The thread count, which no doubt is a measure of quality, but is certainly not the only criteria you should look for.
Fact 2: Thread count should not be the only criteria for selecting the bed sheets, other factors should be considered too. Thread count is the numbers of threads woven in one square inch of fabric. A higher thread count is generally considered superior, as it makes for a smoother and finer finish. However, the base fiber and the size and the quality of the yarns are far more important. As far as the thread count is concerned, the magic number is right around 300.
