What can you say about Egyptian cotton sheets? Does anyone even buy them? They do come in King and Queen-size so this tells me they are well-liked and well-known. In other words, a lot of people are using them. But why are they specifically labeled Egyptian cotton sheets? Cotton is very breathable and these cotton sheets should disperse heat and keep you cool while you sleep. This is fine in the summertime when it gets hot but what about in the wintertime. The hope is that the sheets will keep the bed warm enough so the client does not get cold during the winter. There are plenty of Egyptian cotton sheets on the market today. Amazon seems to carry a large quantity of this type of cotton sheets. These types of sheets are also more expensive than regular sheets but why is this? It could be because they are Egyptian or because they are made of cotton.
