What is Egyptian Cotton?
Egyptian Cotton from the cotton specie, Gossypium Barbadense; is indigenous to a group of the West Indian Islands named the Lesser Antilles. It gets its name from Barbados, one of these West Indian Islands. Gossypium Barbadense is grown extensively in Egypt and has the reputation of being the world’s finest cotton. The length of the fibre (or the staple) is much longer than that of other cottons. The longer the fibre the higher the quality of the cotton. The length of the fibre makes it possible to spin the finest of yarns without losing the strength.

Why Egyptian Cotton?
Fabrics made from Egyptian Cotton are softer, finer, stronger and longer lasting than any other cotton, creating beautiful quality linen. Falucca Fine Linen’s Egyptian cotton improves with age and can be machine washed and tumble dried.

What exactly is weave?
Falucca Fine Linen has used a sateen weave (4/1) which enhances the tactile qualities of Egyptian Cotton even further. Many people confuse percale with thread count, however, percale is a weave which has a thread count of between 180 to 250. Percale therefore refers to a weave.

What is thread count and how does it impact on quality?
Thread count refers to the number of threads both in the vertical and horizontal direction in a specified area (3.16cm2). Most cotton fabrics will start at 150. Longer, finer Egyptian cotton fibre allows for more threads to be woven into a square inch of fabric without making the fabric heavy or hard. Softness and luxury are maintained without forsaking quality and strength.

While high thread count can certainly make for better sheets, it’s the thread (or fibre) itself that matters most. In fact, a sheet of a better quality fibre with a lower thread count will feel softer and stand up to washing better than a sheet of a lower quality fibre with a higher thread count.

How do I maintain colour consistency of my new bedding?
Dye-lot variations occur in all textiles and are unavoidable, however we will always advise a client if your order falls over two dye lots and a variation is present. Dyed cotton is sensitive to direct sunlight and fading will occur, avoid drying your linen in the sun, fading is also caused by optical brighteners used in most washing powders, never use strong chemicals or industrial washing powders on coloured or dyed cotton.
