It would be lovely to have cupboards full of the finest Egyptian Cotton or Pima Cotton bed linen with high thread counts and silky smooth finishes but this may not be within everyone’s budget. When buying pure cotton bed linen, my recommendation is to use a retailer with a reliable reputation. This usually means you will get value for what you pay for.
Go as expensive as your budget will allow. Do try to stay away from the very bottom of the price range as the bedding may prove to be of a very light fabric or prone to flaws and could disappoint. If it looks too good to be true it probably is. If you can afford it, buy a percale but remember a percale sheet or bedding can be a polycotton mix or 100% cotton so always check your labels. Pure cotton will be cooler than polycotton to sleep in and would be my preference.
It would be lovely to have cupboards full of the finest Egyptian Cotton or Pima Cotton bed linen with high thread counts and very fine finishes. However, I am not sure how realistic it is, for the average family home, to have top of the range Egyptian Cotton, for every bed in the house. With three to four beds at least in most houses and three changes a bed, it all adds up.
But all is not lost. There are good quality cotton duvet covers and sheets to be bought at very affordable prices which will give years of comfort and pleasure . The bonus is you will be less emotionally disturbed when the dog comes in from rolling in wet mud and makes straight for your bed, if you have not spent €500 on the bed covers!
So consider the Forgotten Cotton range of duvet covers. They will give you the comfort and durability of 100% cotton at a price that competes well with the synthetic ranges. Originally designed for the holiday home market it will wash time and time again.
