WHY SINGLE PLY
Although thread count is very important, thread count alone is not the only factor to consider when purchasing a set of sheets. One must consider the type of cotton used and the "ply" of the sheets. The term "ply" refers to the number of single fibres twisted together before it is woven into a fabric. Single ply sheets are woven using a single thread with long staple (ELS) cotton fibres for superior levels of quality, durability and softness. These ultra fine yarns of cotton are silkier, softer and more lustrous. We use the thinnest possible Egyptian cotton yarn woven in the most advanced weaving looms to create a true master piece in bedding. At Egyptian Cotton Kingdom we are proud of the quality of our sheets and we guarantee that what we say is what we sell and all our sheets and duvet covers are single ply!
The benefits of having high thread count sheets is that mills are forced to create much finer threads in order to increase the amount of threads in a square inch (keeping in mind that they don't also increase the ply). Finer threads usually result in a much smoother and softer fabric. This is the main reason that a higher thread count fabric is more desirable than a low thread count. Having finer threads also means that the threads are slightly more delicate so one must use proper care instructions when washing their linens.
