What is Egyptian Cotton?
Egyptian cotton is a hand-picked crop optimally grown in Egypt, where the plant is able to mature to a long-staple fiber that can be used to make textiles for luxury goods. The hand-picking process allows the plant fiber to retain its long, smooth and straight shape that promotes durability and strength of the yarn made from the fiber. The yarn is also able to absorb liquids extremely well, which is perfect for a variety of uses, such as manufacturing bath towels and absorbing dyes for bright, beautiful colors.
Egyptian cotton is extremely soft, and materials made from this yarn are durable enough to last for long periods of time. Because of the quality and its rich, opulent feel, Egyptian cotton is a coveted material for items like bed sheets, towels, high-end clothing and decorative tapestries.
