Is Egyptian cotton soft?

Last week, a friend of mine came to visit me from Mississippi. She didn’t grow up with a lot of money but she is the best person that I have ever met in my entire life. So you can say that I was beyond thrilled that she was coming to spend a week with me!

Once she arrived at my house, I showed her to the guest room. I love my best friend more than anything, but lets face it, I don’t want to share my bed with anyone. If I did, I would probably have a boyfriend, haha.

Keep in mind that this was my friend Kandis’s first time at my new place. So when she walked into the guest room for the first time, the very first thing that she noticed was that the bed covers were thick. I remember her telling me that they were the thickest bed covers that she had ever seen in her entire life.

I told her that it was probably because it was an Egyptian cotton duvet cover set. Of course she had no idea what that meant. And lets be honest, if I hadn’t have been raised by my mother, who has an obsession with Egyptian cotton, I probably wouldn’t have known what it was either.

So I explained what a duvet cover was and why I chose to use Egyptian cotton sheets for every bedroom in my home. Then I had to tell her why I chose to get a 1,200 thread count set instead of a 600 thread count. She really had no idea that the different threads were so important. But then again, most twenty one year old don’t know the difference between thread counts.

We had to have stayed on this subject for about two hours before she finally changed the subject. However, that did not stop her from talking about the bed sheets all week long. Every morning she would tell me how wonderful the bed sheets were and how they were the softest bed sheets that she had ever slept on.

Then right before she left to go back home, I wrote the name of the website that I purchased the Egyptian cotton bed sheets and duvet covers from, Luxury of the Pharaohs.

Before Kandis came to visit me, I never realized how soft Egyptian cotton really was. But now, I can say with one hundred percent certainty that Egyptian cotton is the softest fabric that there is!
