Shopping for the right kind of bed sheets can be an overwhelming experience. With so many different kinds of sheets available, you may not know which ones to buy. If you're looking for high-quality sheets, Egyptian cotton sheets are second-to-none. To help you figure out if Egyptian cotton sheets are right for you, let’s take a look at the features these sheets provide.

Benefits of Egyptian Cotton Sheets-

The infamous Egyptian cotton sheets possess many desirable features such as their high quality cotton, soft as silk like texture, and high thread count. They contain long fibers that are extensively weaved, which is why they produce such luxurious thread counts.

Higher Thread Count -

The higher the thread counts, the more lavish these sheets will feel. High quality Egyptian cotton sheets are so soft, that they almost feel like a second layer of skin. You will become enveloped in softness and feel as if you are floating on a cloud. Imagine, no more harsh, abrasive sheets scratching against your skin. These sheets take the sleeping experience to a completely new level.

Differences Between Egyptian Cotton and Regular Sheets-

Another distinction between high quality Egyptian cotton sheets and regular cotton sheets is how tight the weave is. A tighter weave produces higher quality sheets. Egyptian sheets have a very tight weave. With proper care, these sheets will pay for themselves in no time.

Egyptian Cotton Sheets are Pricey-

Egyptian cotton sheets are also extremely expensive. Since they often contain a higher thread count than other cotton sheets, they offer high quality at an even higher price. Even though these sheets tend to be pricey, it all depends on the quality and the brand of sheets you purchase. When you do buy premium Egyptian cotton sheets, you can be rest assured that the money spent will be a wise investment that will last for many years to come.

Lower Quality Egyptian Cotton Sheets-

Some manufacturers make Egyptian cotton sheets with lower thread counts. While these sheets may be less expensive, the quality is not as good as sheets with higher thread counts.

Compare One Brand Against Another-

You will also want to keep an eye on the brands you decide to test. Feel the fabric. Compare the pricey sheets to the less expensive sheets, side by side if you can. You will notice a difference in the texture, thickness and overall quality of the sheets.

Often, higher quality materials make higher priced sheets. It is also important to remember to buy sheets that are 100 percent cotton. Often companies will blend cotton with other materials; therefore, these sheets will not feel as soft and the quality may not be as good.

As you can see, there are many benefits of Egyptian cotton sheets; however, it is important to keep in mind the quality of the sheets you purchase. Many factors affect the quality of sheets you buy. This is why you should be mindful of the products used to make the sheets. You should also check the thread count, and how tightly they are weaved. And lastly, what brands are available. Only then will you be able to determine if the Egyptian cotton sheets you buy are better than the regular cotton sheets you use on a regular basis.
