If you're accustomed to using plain old cotton sheets and duvet covers on your bed, it should be about time you wanted to try something just a little bit more luxurious. Treating yourself to a better fabric to sleep on and under at night might be something you've really been missing and don't even know it! Until you have spent the night surrounded by Egyptian cotton, you can not know how the difference really feels.
If you don't really know what the differences are between regular cotton and Egyptian cotton, you can visit http://luxuryofthepharaohs.com/ like I did and read all about how Egyptian cotton is grown and how there is a true difference in the feel and durability. The fibers of Egyptian cotton are longer and make up into much softer cotton fabric.
Whether you are just looking for a new cover for an older duvet you already have, or you want a brand new duvet with matching sheets, Egyptian cotton is one of the very best choices available. The cost might be a little more than what you are used to paying, but once you actually feel the differences compared to other common bedding fabrics, you will never want to use any other fabric again. When you think about that old saying about you get what you pay for, in this case it is absolutely true!
