What makes 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets so much more desirable and than standard percale sheets?
The densely packed weave makes the fabric so soft and silky they just ooze quality and comfort so much so they are now probably the best selling Egyptian cotton bedding range in the UK.
At 400 threads per square inch they are still light enough to be used all year round whereas a thread count of 800 or 1000 can be quite heavy due to the amount of cotton used to achieve such a densely packed fabric.
Cotton Percale sheets start with a minimum weave standard of 200 count, this bedding is still very soft and gives you years of use.
Egyptian cotton sheets are still better as they use extra long yarns which are more absorbent and will last longer as they continue to get softer and more resilient every time you wash and use them.
Softer and stronger
400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets use the same percale yarns but they are then woven to produce a much better consistency of yarns, stronger and softer to sleep on.
Using only selected grades of cotton from Egypt, the fabric is put through a rigorous quality assurance procedure that identifies any impurities and flaws in the fabric.
They are then eliminated leaving the manufacturer with a superb fabric of which he will manufacture this exceptionally high quality luxury bedding. At Bedlinen Direct we stock many brands of quality cotton sheets and duvet covers, in the 400 thread count bedding we have two stunning options for you to choose from, take a look below for more information:
