We have all heard that we spend a third of our lives in bed.  That being said it is understandable why comfort should reign supreme and what better way to stay cool and comfortable than sleeping between soft, breathable 100% cotton sheets.

Below are a few fun facts about 100% cotton sheets to help with your future purchase:

  • Egyptian cotton is the highest quality cotton in the world.  It has long, silky fibers that weave an exceptionally soft, luxurious and durable sheet.

  • Pima or Supima is similar to Egyptian cotton with long, silky fibers creating an extremely soft, comfortable and durable sheet.  The difference is that Pima or Supima cotton is grown in the United States, Australia and Peru.

  • Cotton sheets that do not specify 100% Egyptian, Pima or Supima are made of a lower-quality cotton variety.  So, a higher thread count is important to guaranty softness and durability.

  • Cotton percale sheets of 200 - 800 thread count will be more durable than a cotton satin or sateen sheet of the same thread count.

  • Organic cotton is grown, harvested and processed without pesticides and other potentially harmful chemicals.  Global Organic Textile Standard certified ensures that the sheets were produced responsibly and ethically. Fair Trade Certified means each piece sold directly improves the life of the person who produced it.  

Here’s to a peaceful nights sleep!
