The fiber length of Egyptian cotton is relatively long, and the fiber length is generally greater than 33mm, and the longest can be up to 70mm. Egyptian cotton is softer and smoother than ordinary cotton. In addition, Egyptian cotton has a higher count than ordinary cotton, has better gloss, and will emit a natural luster.
Egyptian cotton generally refers to high-quality cotton produced in Egypt. This type of cotton is characterized by relatively long velvet, usually more than 30 mm in length.

The fabric of Egyptian long-staple cotton is cool, breathable, antibacterial and health-care. This fabric is more breathable than ordinary cotton, has the function of not staining sweat, has a stronger quick-drying effect than ordinary cotton fabrics, and is easier to clean.
Because cotton is a warm-loving crop, climate is the key to its quality. Egyptian cotton is superior to Xinjiang cotton and cotton from other producing areas, with good dyeing performance and very good quality.
In addition, cotton needs sufficient water and nutrients to grow, which are mainly obtained from the soil through the root system. The required temperature and air also come from the soil, so the quality of cotton will be affected by many aspects. Naturally, the quality of cotton varies from place to place.
High quality cotton produced in Egypt. It is characterized by long pile (fiber length exceeding 31.8 mm), rich silk luster, tough texture and good dyeing effect. It is the best raw material for the textile industry and has long been famous in the world.
Egyptian cotton, also known as Egyptian long-staple cotton, has long been famous in the world and is known as “Platinum”. Egyptian cotton is native to the South Asian subcontinent. It likes high temperatures and rainy weather, and is most suitable for its growth in savannah, temperate and tropical monsoon areas. Due to the advancement of irrigation technology and the improvement of cotton quality requirements, after the war, cotton was increasingly concentrated in arid areas with irrigation conditions. Moreover, cotton production requires a large amount of labor, and mechanization developed late. After cotton is pressed to remove cotton seeds, the transportation cost is no more than that of cotton fabrics. High, these factors have affected the inconsistency in the regional distribution of cotton production and consumption.
Egypt is the world’s most important exporter of long-staple cotton. Because of its best intrinsic quality, its price is also the most expensive in the world.
