Only cotton that is grown without pesticides and other harsh chemicals can be considered an organic material.  Growers that raise organic cotton reduce the amount of chemicals that enter the soil and the local water table.  Not adding chemicals to the soil keeps the local vegetation safe for consumption by the local wildlife.  When chemicals are added to the soil and vegetation starts to grow in the contaminated soil, it can cause birth defects and diseases in many types of wildlife.  By keeping the soil free of chemicals helps to stop chemical residue from seeping into the local water sources, such as lakes, ponds, streams,s and rivers.  Contaminated water not only has detrimental effects on wildlife but also affects the local human population.  Growing organic cotton crops is beneficial to the surrounding environment and all creatures great and small that live there.

Allergies are on the rise among many individuals.

The vast majority of people do not realize that the sheets that they sleep on every night can cause their allergies to flare up at bedtime.  The reason for this is because of the chemicals that are used in the growing process of the cotton that the sheets are made out of.  Organic cotton is toxin-free and helps to reduce the number of allergens that one is exposed to daily. Not having to worry about allergies flaring up at bedtime, also helps ensure a more comfortable rest.

What makes organic Egyptian cotton fibers different from other cotton fibers is the length.

One of the benefits of Egyptian cotton sheets is that the cotton fibers are longer than their more common counterparts.  By the fibers being longer, they also last longer and are more durable when woven into sheets.  With these types of sheets lasting longer, saves the consumer money in the long run.  Many of us have had to replace bed linens every so many years.  This is not so with organic Egyptian cotton sheets since they are more durable.  Since organic cotton is free from chemicals, the fibers also do not break as easily and do not become brittle, fray, or ball up and pill. Having no toxic chemicals helps the linens to last longer too.

Organic Egyptian cotton sheets have high moisture absorption and are extremely breathable when compared to other types of fibers.  The surface of the linens feels smoother and cooler in the summer months or warmer climates.  Those who suffer from skin conditions also prefer organic Egyptian cotton sheets because of the breathability next to the skin.

Are organic Egyptian cotton sheets expensive?

Purchasing a set of organic Egyptian cotton sheets will cost a little more than other types of bed linens.  These organic sheets will far outlast cheaper bed linens and will not have to be replaced after a few years.  Investing in higher quality sheets saves not only money in the long run but also helps consumers to do something good for the environment every time they slip between these luxurious cotton sheets.
