Manufacturer's Description: Grown mainly in the Nile Valley, Egyptian cotton is world-renowned for its supreme softness. And, we've added an extraordinary improvement! Through mercerizing, we've made it even softer. Nothing refreshes mind and body more than a good night's sleep. Egyptian Cotton Sheets are superior, long-staple 100% cotton woven for a smooth, silky touch that caresses your skin like a kiss. These sheets get softer with each wash.
Egyptian cotton takes time "to settle". In fact, the more you wash it, the better it performs. Similar to a fine linen tea towel that is stiff, hard and brittle when new, yet softens and drapes better with age and lasts for many, many years, so too does Egyptian cotton improve with use, lasting much longer than conventional cotton.
