Egyptian Cotton

Cotton grown along the Nile is known for its quality and signifies luxury. Egyptian cotton is used to make products which are soft, durable and superior. The long staple or long fibre of Egyptian-grown cotton means that there is more continuous fibre to use when creating threads or yarns. This yarn is smaller in diameter yet stronger than other cottons. Smaller yarn means that more threads per square inch can be used to create a stronger fabric which is light in weight yet breathes well.
