Egyptian Cotton __ Egyptian cotton is a strong, lustrous cotton with extra_long fibers grown only in Egypt. Its extraordinary quality is due to the long growing season in that country. Sheets made from 100 percent Egyptian cotton with a high thread count are considered by some to be the most luxurious sheets because of their breathability, strength, and softness. Look for a thread count over 300 to ensure you purchase quality sheets.
Flannel __ Flannel sheets are made from a blend of different types of cotton. The quality is not measured by thread count but in ounces of material per square yard of fabric. Four ounces or more per square yard is considered good quality flannel. Flannel bed sheets have a soft, brushed surface and are highly popular for providing warmth during colder months.
