Not all cotton is the same, and if you’re looking for luxury bedding
from the mattress store, you should have some understanding of the different
types that are available. Egyptian cotton has long been heralded as the
best in the industry, but what is it? Keep reading and find out exactly
what Egyptian cotton is.

Egyptian cotton comes from a different plant than regular cotton does,
which is part of the reason it stands out. The cotton’s fibers are
intact because the plants are handpicked, so you can make fine yarns that
are still strong and durable yet soft and comfortable. Standard cotton
has splices because of the way it’s grown and picked, so it’s
not quite as soft or versatile. The fact that Egyptian cotton is handpicked
makes it better able to stand up against stress and hold together over time.
