Treat yourself by investing in some Egyptian cotton bedding

in Cotton

There’s nothing nicer than the feeling of getting into bed when the sheets have just been changed and wrapping yourself up in that newly-clean, soft and cosy duvet. But this experience can be made even better by certain materials that are available out there. Egyptian cotton bedding is the latest fashion to be found within the household.

People have got the taste for it after finding it in high-class hotels. Its promises of bringing comfort and durability to the bedroom, allow us to add a touch of luxury to our nightly slumber. Identifiable by its distinctive yellow petals and black seeds, the tropical plant called Gossypium barbadense (also known as extra long staple cotton) is the source of Egyptian cotton. The natural fibres that are attained from this plant are then turned into Egyptian cotton sheets, producing a fabric that is soft, luxurious, divine and extremely comfortable. During any discussions about cotton sheets, you may have heard the term “thread count” being thrown around quite a bit. This term relates to the amount of threads (both vertical and horizontal) that have been used to create one square inch of material.

Therefore, if an item of bedding were to have a high thread count (it is generally suggested that one purchases bedding with a minimum thread count of 200), then it would mean that the fabric would feel smoother and more luxurious. From a practical perspective, Egyptian cotton does not demand any specific requirements and can easily be machine washed with the rest your laundry. As well as this, there is no need to worry about Egyptian cotton losing its colour as it can last for many years without any noteworthy fading; because of this and as an extremely absorbent fabric, Egyptian cotton allows sheets to be set with deeper, brighter and more resistant colours.

Those who have trouble sleeping may particularly benefit by investing in some Egyptian cotton sheets. More often than not, the reason for one’s insomnia is due to discomfort in some way; whilst this could be due to a regular pain that one may be suffering etc, it can simply be down to uncomfortable bedding. Egyptian cotton is extremely absorbent and takes moisture away from the body during sleep; this consequently reduces our sleeping temperature, enabling us to sleep much more comfortably. If you are one who suffers with insomnia, try investing in Egyptian cotton sheets as they could be more beneficial to you than you may initially think. Many people keep their bedding for years and do not invest in anything new.

Have a think about when the last time was that you bought yourself new bedding. By constantly using and washing your old bedding, you are slowly wearing it down and consequently, making it lose its original comfort that was so appealing to you when you first bought your bedding. By treating yourself and investing in Egyptian cotton bedding, not only will you be gaining that long-overdue comfort, you can also rest assured that your investment will be long lasting. Your high quality sheets will last for years on end, thanks to the fine cotton that is used to make them which contains a high thread count per square inch.
