Tried, tested and a customer favourite, the smoothness of this high quality 400 thread count Egyptian Cotton bedlinen is just the thing you need to slip in to a blissful slumber.
Some things are classics for good reason. Just like our 400 thread count Egyptian Cotton bedlinen range. It's become a bit of a customer favourite thanks to its simple good looks and unbeatable price. The long, strong, fine fibres of the Egyptian cotton mean you'll notice the difference in the soft, smooth and breathable sateen weave.
Sleep Like an Egyptian
Made with 100% certified Egyptian cotton fibres accredited by the Egyptian Cotton Association. Egyptian cotton is grown exclusively in Egypt on the banks of the river Nile. The warm climate and rich soil are perfect for growing the high quality, long staple length cotton fibres we all love in our cotton bedsheets.
These extra long and strong cotton fibres create a smoother, softer and more durable yarn and fabric for an excellent quality bedlinen that will give you many years of comfortable sleep and happy mornings. This fabric is made with 3-ply yarns and a sateen weave fabric for greater smoothness and strength.
Would you believe that Egyptian Cotton cultivation began in an ornamental garden? It's true! A chap called Jumel spotted the beautiful cotton plants in a Cairo garden, and after looking at it a little more closely, realised that thanks to its long fibres it could be woven into a strong and fine cloth. Before long he began cultivating it along the banks of the Nile. Egypt (and our bedtimes) have never looked back.
We rigorously test our bed linen to make sure it has what it takes to supercharge your sleep. We pay particular attention to colour fastness, longevity and washability.

The Look & Feel
You Old Smoothy...
Egyptian cotton, sateen weave and a 400 thread count means this bedlinen feels beautifully smooth, silky and lightweight against your skin.
What A Treat
The beautiful fabric used to make this bedlinen has a pleasing drape and a subtle sheen for a look of pure luxury that works beautifully on its own or as a blank canvas for your unique bedroom look.
This bedlinen range is finished with a 5mm wide silky marrow stich cording on the duvet cover, pillow cases and flat sheets. The duvet cover and Oxford pillow cases have 5cm borders. The fitted sheets are elasticated around the full edge of the sheet for a perfect fit.
The duvet covers are fastened with tie closures so you don't need to worry about ironing around fiddly buttons. Pillow cases have an envelope closure for a neat finish.
Keep your bed clean and fresh by changing and washing your bedlinen regularly. Once a week should do the trick. You can wash this bedlinen at 40°C, although we'd recommend you wash it at 30°C for a greener way to stay clean.
Do your bit for our planet and dry your bedlinen by hanging it to dry out of direct sunlight. It will dry best on an outside washing line. If time or space is tight, this bedlinen can also be tumble-dried. You'll have fewer creases to deal with if you remove your bedlinen from the drier while slightly damp and then hang it to air dry.
Always use the best detergent for the product you are washing. If you're washing white bedlinen we'd recommend powdered detergents. If you're washing coloured bedlinen, we'd recommend you use a washing gel/liquid or a detergent suitable for coloured fabrics.
They create an optical illusion that changes the appearance of the colour. It's not just detergents that can affect your bedlinen; some creams and facewashes contain chemicals that will bleach your bedlinen, such as benzoyl peroxide. Suncream and bronzers can also stain your bedsheets; having a shower before bed to remove skin products will help your bedlinen stay looking good for longer.
