Brighton Hill Egyptian Cotton White Oxford Pillowcase
100% Egyptian cotton percale combed cotton. Woven with 200 threads per square inch, the superior cotton in this Oxford pillowcase is luxurious to touch and beautifully soft to sleep on. Many choose pure cotton to help combat heat in the summer months and the cool, white crispness is the perfect look in any home. These pillowcases fit the standard UK 50cm x 75cm pillows. Machine washable 40 degrees.
Egyptian cotton bed linen has become wildly popular in recent years as it was believed for a long time that cotton was cotton and it was actually the ‘thread count’ of the fabric that was the only important factor when choosing quality bed linen. However, this is no longer the case as consumer guidelines for buying bedding suggest that cotton from Egypt is superior to other cotton.
Quality bed linen starts at around 180 threads per inch, with 200+ thread count bed linen providing superior luxury. Bed linen made from 200, or above, thread count fabric will be harder wearing and have a super crisp feel as the individual threads are thicker, whereas bed linen with a silky satin feel is provided by the thinner threads, such as those of the higher 200 thread count bed linen.
What is an ‘Oxford’ Pillowcase?
Oxford describes the extra fabric border added to the edge of the pillowcase, as opposed to the non-bordered version, commonly called ‘Housewife’.
