Egyptian cotton has the reputation for being one of the finest cotton fabrics in the world which is why when you choose to buy Egyptian cotton sheets, you assume you’re buying the best sheets available in Australia.
Choosing sheets can be complicated with so many considerations to make. The best sheets to choose are the ones you feel most comfortable sleeping in!
But there are some key signals to look out for. One of the single most important factors is to buy sheets made from 100% natural fibres like 100 percent pure Egyptian cotton sheets. Avoid sheets with descriptions like “cotton rich” and “micro fibre” because they contain synthetic fibres like polyester in the fabric which is not only less comfortable to sleep in but also the source of tiny micro particles of plastic which end up in our oceans.
Egyptian cotton sheets are associated with premium quality and have been traditionally made from the cotton plant species Gossypium barbadense. But any cotton grown in Egypt can technically be called Egyptian cotton and all cotton grown in Egypt isn’t Gossypium barbadense. But products labelled Egyptian cotton sheets are broadly understood to be Gossypium barbadense which thanks to the extra-long staple fibres, produces the beautiful soft smooth sheets that are synonymous with quality.
All cotton isn’t equal and the quality of the cotton and the sheets produced is affected by many factors including the cotton species, climate, soil conditions in which the cotton is grown, the way the cotton is harvested and of course the textile production process and weave.
Ecodownunder Egyptian Cotton Sheet Sets are as the name suggests, made from cotton grown in Egypt but more specifically in the Nile Delta. Giza yarn as it is known, is produced from cotton grown in the nutrient rich lands around the River Nile. This area is characterised by sunshine, high humidity and rainfall, the optimum growing conditions to produce long staple cotton fibres, and the reason why it makes the best Egyptian cotton sheets for softness and breathability.
White Egyptian Cotton Sheets are our best sellers. They have a premium hotel quality look and feel, but we also offer equally luxurious Egyptian cotton in soft blue and soft grey sheets to ensure your sheets complement a range of bedroom colour palettes.
King Size Egyptian Cotton Sheets are the most sort after in Australia, and we offer these in Sheet Sets which include 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet and 2 pillowcases. There are 2 options for the fitted sheet. For those with a standard mattress the 37cm drop or wall on the fitted sheet is very generous and fits most mattresses but if you have a very deep mattress or a bulky mattress topper choose the 50cm drop.
Egyptian Cotton Sheets are not limited to use by those with king size beds! You can also buy Egyptian cotton sheet sets for single, king single, double and queen size beds so everyone in the home can enjoy the luxury of sleeping in our 450 thread count Egyptian cotton.
