You would not quite believe it just yet but summer time is nearly here, put away those heavy winter duvets and blankets and get out your cool and crisp luxury bed sheets. White cotton bedding is the most popular shade in the warmer months as it is both bright and goes with just about any other brighter colour, many people use this option to accessorize and liven up the bedroom.

Bedlinen Direct specialise in Egyptian cotton sheets and duvet covers, we stock nearly every size available, single, 4FT, double, king, super king, emperor and the latest European 75cm x 200cm and 90cm x 200cm fitted sheets. The one thing in common with our luxury white bedding ranges is quality and luxury, we believe you deserve the very best things in life and a good night’s sleep is just as important as a fine meal or a luxury holiday. Our bedding ranges are manufactured by some of the finest brand names in the industry, Belledorm, Sheridan and Peter Reed produce the finest designer bedding which are made using the best materials and craftsmanship.

We will all want a bit of quality and comfort in life, luxury bedding has a reputation to uphold and the cotton used in our sheets and duvet covers are regarded as being the finest and softest. We have selected the finest grade of Egyptian cotton to use in our white bed linen. A high thread count makes them extremely light and breathable, the fabric is also very absorbent and helps cool the body down during the warmer nights.

This wicking effect helps make the cotton become softer over time, repeated washing on a gentle cycle helps  the bed linen to become softer. Just imagine sleeping on clean bed sheets tonight, there is nothing finer than freshly laundered sheets and duvet covers, our bedding is made from 100% Genuine cotton from Egypt.

We do not accept imitation bedlinen because if it sounds too good to be true then it probably will be. People find good quality cotton bedding a little stiff at first, this is due to the cotton being more robust and the fact there is more cotton in the threads per square inch than other lesser grades of cotton sheets. They will soften over the first few washes so don’t be put off in the first instance. Lots of cheaper bed linen is coated in silicone or treatments that make them feel wonderful straight out of the packet, this is a short term feel as this will be washed away in the first few months of use. Just think why the best hotels in the world use white cotton bedding, not only comfort and customer satisfaction but also the fact that they will last for many years even with the amount of heavy use they endure.

Egyptian Cotton Sheets

What makes Egyptian cotton so unique, much is said about cotton sheets but what sets apart the very good from the really average? Egyptian cotton is brand name in its own right, with a reputation that is truly global. Having the label on your bedding gives you certain assurances of quality, craftsmanship and overall comfort. For hundreds of years cotton has cultivated, grown and then used in clothing and bedding, premium quality was once the preserve of wealthy clientele but as more and more of the world’s population got richer in their own rights the luxury bed linen market became more and more accessible and affordable

To become a major brand of bedding what does Egyptian cotton have to offer that you just cannot get in other fabrics, you do not get such a reputation by chance. Cotton is a truly organic product, grown naturally without chemicals and pesticides the resulting cotton crop is soft and fluffy. Cotton grown in Egypt is handpicked and cleaned using age old techniques that have been handed down through the ages, from farmer to farmer and so on. This time consuming and less invasive harvesting method helps keep the cotton from being overly refined resulting in a high grade of absorbent cotton. The ability of the fabric to absorb moisture is one the key advantages, this helps the cotton to become softer overtime, washing the fabric does not impair in abilities but only enhances it.

There is nothing finer in the world than slipping in to clean, crisp cotton sheets, sleeping is one the things we take for granted and it consumes over a third of our lives. It is very important that we achieve a good 6-8 hours of sleep every night or our health and happiness could deteriorate over time. A lot is said about long staple fibre yarns and single ply fabrics and more importantly thread count.

A high fabric pick or count can take care of the other two points as the cotton has to be manufactured from long staple yarns as they would just break under the extreme weaving processes that modern bedding has to endure. Two ply technologies are mainly incorporated to enhance the yarns strength and robustness, any fabric over 600 thread count will have a form of twisting involved in the yarns.

So what is thread all about and what should I choose to achieve the best results, we have included below a few key indicator you can go by. This method will not give you the whole story when it comes to choosing you new luxury Egyptian cotton sheets but thread count does mean you can expect quality and value for money. ‘Thread count’ or ‘pick’ is the number of threads in each square inch and generally speaking, the higher the thread count, the more luxurious, dense and soft the material will feel.

Luxury Cotton Sheets

A Percale fabric is generally the minimum threads per square inch any good manufacturer will use in their premium bedding ranges, it is often a matt fabric and does not have the same luxurious sateen sheen that you will find in the higher counts. This is ideal for guest houses, smaller hotels and obviously the spare bedroom or guest room. Still very soft and sensuous this is great way of testing the water so to speak. This has a 200 thread count or 200 threads per square inch.

Stepping up from the basic percale range you will certainly want to try this for yourself, 400 Thread Count is definitely softer and a more substantial Egyptian cotton percale sheets than the 200 count, if you like being pampered every night choose for this quality for its cool feel and durability, this designer cotton bedding range is what you expect to find on the beds of major hotel chains worldwide.

Now we are getting somewhere, this is where we introduce you to some of the best fabrics you will find in the world. 600 thread count or 600 threads per square inch use the latest air jet technology to produce a wonderful creation that is straight out of a fairy tale. Premium levels of comfort and softness, this is one of those bedding fabrics that you will definitely want to stay in bed for.

Health and sleep is very important and you have certainly proved this when you sleep in such luxury.
