Only a tiny proportion of the world’s cotton qualifies for the name Egyptian cotton – it’s a sign of fine quality, although it’s no longer grown just in Egypt. The fibres are naturally long, so they’re very strong when woven. They’re also soft, smooth and breathable, with a subtle sheen. Egyptian cotton is ideal for making bed linen, as it’s both luxurious and long-lasting.
Thread count refers to the number of threads woven together in a square inch. 500 is at the very top end: it means the fabric is tightly woven, which makes for warmer, silkier and stronger bed linen.
The narrow grosgrain (ribbed) ribbon on Albertine’s edge is a subtle detail – enough to catch the eye, but without spoiling its clean look. It comes in three shades – this one is Lily, a pale grey that gives just a little more definition than white.
All our duvet covers come with a button fastening on the back near the feet, not on the bottom edge, so they have a neat finish on the bed. We use white pearlescent buttons and, just in case you lose one, there are two spares sewn inside the bottom corner.
