Egyptian Cotton comes from where its name suggests - Egypt. The humid conditions and rich soil in Egypt
along the Nile River Valley create the perfect conditions to grow long cotton fibers (also known as staples), and
Egyptian cotton falls under the classification of an ELS (extra-long staple) cotton. The staples of Egyptian cotton
can range from 1 1/2 inches to 2 1/4 inches. Their long length (about twice the size of other cotton fibers) allows
them to be spun into very fine yarns. These yarns are soft and lustrous yet are very strong and durable.

Initially wash separately in cold or warm water. Tumble dry with dryer balls on a medium heat setting and avoid overloading. Fabric softeners are optional, since cotton will naturally become softer with time and use. Machine wash using moderate temperatures and gentle cycles in a small to moderate load. Do not use ‘water saver’ settings. Select a mild soap such as Tide Free, Linen Wash, or Ivory. Do not use any type of bleach or fabric softener. Machine dry on gentle using a moderate temperature; do not over dry. Ironing can be done on the appropriate fabric setting while the fabric is still slightly damp.
TIP: To help reduce wrinkles, shake out sheets immediately after removing from washer before throwing in the dryer. Using dryer balls will help reduce wrinkles and speed drying time.
Do not use caustic soaps or bleaches. Sleep in nightwear made with natural fabrics; nightwear made with synthetic fibers is one of the biggest causes of pilling. Do not launder with any articles that are heavy or coarse, they can scour the fabric. Acne medications and whitening toothpastes contain chemicals that will bleach almost everything.
