Egyptian Cotton

EMILY: That was your mother, Richard. She just wanted to make sure that all our towels are Egyptian cotton.

Egyptian cotton has long been considered superior to “normal” cotton. The ideal growing conditions in Egypt lead to a very fine yarn, and the plants are harvested by hand, so that the cotton is supposedly stronger, more flexible, softer, longer-lasting, and doesn’t “pill”. Egyptian cotton is said to be more moisture absorbent, making it a good option for towels.
