Cotton is naturally hypoallergenic, odour-resistant and doesn't go through any harsh chemical treatments. Cotton fibres are really easy to maintain, breathable yet absorbent, and soft yet durable.
Cotton fibres soften wash after wash, so like a nice wine, they get even better with age (but really, we've never been able to keep wine around long enough to compare.)
The cotton plants we use produce a 'Long Staple Cotton' which is more commonly known as Egyptian Cotton. These plants give us longer, more luxurious yarns than a standard cotton plant.
Since these longer strands are easier to weave, it produces a much softer texture, is less scratchy and won't pill like cheaper quality sheets.
The end result is a finer, smoother and more durable fabric, which means our sheets will feel better and last longer.
Most high thread count fabrics use short yarns that have been spun together to increase the thread count.
The common understanding of thread count is the high the better, but actually a high thread count can be a dead giveaway of a lower quality fabric because of the poor quality yarns that have been used to keep the thread count high.
The finished fabric of our Long Staple Weave is more porous, therefore more air can pass through which avoids that stuffy feeling at night. For our Long Staple Yarns, a 400 thread count is the perfect weave for our fabric to perform at its best.
Our fabrics have been woven together using a luxurious Sateen weave.
In a Sateen Weave, the yarns are woven together by passing over three times, then under once, allowing for a flatter yarn surface area. This results in more surface area of flat yarns, which is super soft to touch.
Our Sateen weave carries a slight sheen which perfectly compliments the unique colours in our range.
