Types of Cotton and which are Best for your Bedding and Linen - Kerry Linen Ireland

Types of Cotton

Types of Cotton used in bedding and bed linen.  There are three main types of cotton, but we explore one or two more options here.  ‘Normal’ – or Upland – Cotton, makes up the bulk of cotton sheets & pillowcases, with the finer cotton varieties – Egyptian and Pima – offering a longer-lasting, softer to the touch and more luxurious option.

What is Egyptian Cotton? - Kerry Linen Beddng and Bed Linen Ireland

What is Egyptian Cotton?

What is Egyptian Cotton?  There are a number of types of cotton, and Egyptian Cotton is generally considered to be one of, if not the, best. Cotton is derived from a number of plants in the cotton family and Egyptian Cotton comes from one called ‘Gossypium Barbadense’.  No, we’re not sure how to pronounce that either.

What is Pima Cotton? - Kerry Linen

What is Pima Cotton?

‘Pima cotton’ is generally considered a better type of cotton, softer to the touch, more durable and resistant to wrinkling.  This is because Pima cotton fibres (each individual cotton strand) are much longer.  The cotton fibres can be up to twice as long as ‘normal’ cotton, which produces a much stronger material.  Pima tends to have a much smoother feel and will not wrinkle anywhere near as much, making it easier to iron.  The longer threads make the cotton stronger, greatly increasing its life expectancy.
