Egyptian Cotton Vs. Microfiber Sheets
Many high-end luxury bed linens are made from Egyptian cotton, but brands such as Egyptian Comfort are now making microfiber sheets as an alternative.
Egyptian cotton is an extra long staple cotton that grows along the fertile, rich soil of the Nile river in Egypt. These long cotton staples or fibers are twice the length of ordinary cotton fibers. This means the cotton fibers can be spun into very fine yarns that are unusually strong while feeling very soft. Longer, thinner cotton fibers make thinner cotton thread. Thinner cotton thread results in a higher thread count. Thread count is the number of individual threads per square inch of material.
Egyptian cotton sheets are slightly stiff when they are brand new. However, with each wash, the sheets get softer and softer. The sheets actually improve with age. This type of cotton produces almost no lint so the sheets won't pill. When properly cared for, these sheets can last for decades.
The only disadvantage of buying real Egyptian cotton sheets is the price. These luxury sheets can get quite costly, especially with a high thread count. Microfiber sheets are an alternative.
A microfiber is a synthetic fiber that measures less than one denier. A denier is a unit of measurement for the linear mass density of fibers. A single strand of silk is one denier. Microfiber is finer than silk.
Polyester and nylon are the most common polymers used to create microfiber textiles. Microfiber fabrics have desirable properties like breathing ability, stain resistance, wrinkle resistance, easy cleaning, and luxurious appearance. Tightly woven microfiber material has strength and durability.
Benefits of Microfiber Sheets
If you suffer from allergies, microfiber sheets can help you rest better because allergens like pollen granules and dust mites can't get entangled in the tiny microfiber strands.Microfiber sheets are considered environmentally friendly. They can even be made out of recycled plastic and the sheets are recyclable. Cotton, in comparison, takes a lot of water to grow. Many pesticides are used to successfully grow cotton that cause serious pollution and the land needed has to be clear cut.
Finally, microfiber sheets are less expensive than high-quality, cotton sheets. You can get a high-thread count and soft luxury feel for less money.
Although Egyptian cotton is still the most desirable material for luxury bedding, alternatives such as microfiber offer more choices for today's consumer. Those interested in Egyptian Comfort sheets should verify that they are purchasing from a reputable seller and check the return policy prior to buying.
