The 7 Best Egyptian Cotton Sheets Reviewed
A good night’s sleep is essential to your overall health. It’s when we’re asleep that our bodies carry out all the vital repair and maintenance necessary to keep us healthy and happy.

It helps our bodies to patch up all the scuffs and scrapes that we pick up throughout the day. It helps to keep our immune system in top top shape so it can fight off the bugs and infections we encounter regularly.
And a good night’s sleep needs a comfortable bed with the right sheets on it. We all know the importance of a good mattress to give our bones, muscles and joints the support they need, yet fewer of us give as much consideration to our choice in sheets. But the right sheets can help you to remain comfortable throughout the night and maintain an optimal body temperature with less chance of waking up during or feeling sweaty and uncomfortable in the morning due to overheating.

Why choose Egyptian Cotton?
Egyptian Cotton is the gold standard of cotton sheets. Widely used in quality hotels throughout the world, this fabric is made from the fibers of cotton plants that grow along the Nile valley in Egypt. Highly prized for its breathability, Egyptian cotton allows the skin to get access to the air it needs to prevent you from feeling sticky or sweaty as you sleep. Moreover, Egyptian cotton sheets are well known for their exceptional durability. The tight weave of the fabric makes them more durable than other kinds of cotton sheets, and the long staples (fibers) in Egyptian cotton towels make them the most lustrous yet hard wearing on the market. So your sheets look brand new for longer. Egyptian cotton sheets typically have a much higher thread count than other cotton sheets. Thread count is widely regarded as the key indicator of a sheet’s quality, and this is the key to their comfort and durability. Finally, because of the long fibers used in the making of Egyptian cotton sheets, there is little or no lint produced during wear, washing and drying. This means that users don’t experience the unsightly pilling that can not only cause the sheet to look less attractive but can also compromise its comfort.
Egyptian Cotton sheets are an investment. Sure, they may not be the cheapest sheets on the market, but their comparatively high thread count, durability and breathability mean that when washed regularly and properly cared for, your Egyptian Cotton sheets will give you years of blissful comfort while you sleep.
