As such, they are also the perfect opportunities to show them true luxury.

Grade "A" 100% Combed Cotton:

Mercerization:

Texcote Nano Down Treatment:

Using only the longest cotton fibers twisted together to create the thread, our combed cotton products will not show that pesky pilling because there are fewer breaking points in the fibers of the threads. Plus, Grade "A" cotton is the highest quality cotton that can be used.  (There is no "A+ in the cotton industry.)

Combed Cotton: Cotton thread is made by twisting together staples, or strands, of cotton fiber. Combed cotton products use staples of 12 inches (30.48 cm) minimum to form the threads.  Longer staples prevent break points, fibers that rub together during laundering to create pilling, those pesky little fuzz balls.

Grade of Cotton: A letter grade indicating the quality of cotton with "A" being the highest quality.  All of our 100% cotton products are made using Grade "A" Combed Cotton.

Mercerization, in textiles, a chemical treatment applied to cotton fibers or fabrics to permanently impart a greater affinity for dyes and various chemical finishes.  Mercerizing also gives cotton increased tensile strength, increased absorption, and, usually, a high degree of luster, depending on the method used.

Treatment consist of immersing the yarn or fiber in a solution of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) for short periods of time, usually less than four minutes.  The material is then treated with ware or acid to neutralize the sodium hydroxide.  If the material is held under tension during this stage, it is kept from shrinking appreciably; if no tension is applied, the material may shrink by as much as one-fourth. Higher-quality goods are usually mercerized; cloths so treated take brighter, longer-lasting colors from less dye.
