100% Egyptian Combed Cotton
Signoria uses only the finest quality 100% Egyptian combed cotton which is known for its long smooth staple fibers which can produce yarns that are finer than other cottons. Bed linens woven with Egyptian cotton, combined with world renown Italian finishing techniques, results in bedding that is durable, non-pilling, soft on the skin, and easy to care for. The various weaving and finishing techniques can also produce fabrics exhibiting different characteristics.
General Care Guidelines (n.b: please read the “SPECIAL NOTE” section)
Pre-Wash: always pre-wash new bed linens before using. This first wash is important for setting the threads, preserving the fabric's beauty and prolonging its life. Be sure to fully unfold and use minimal liquid detergent.
Use of a fabric softener (liquid or dryer sheets) is not recommended for any fine linens, as it coats and weakens natural fibers.
Detergents: Your Signoria luxury linens will soften naturally with frequent use. A mild detergent that is appropriate for luxury linen is recommended. Detergents with bluing agents or whiteners are not recommended. LINENWASH is suggested for tough stain removal washings.
Rotation: We recommend using at least three sets of bed linens in rotation: one on the bed, one in the laundry and one in the linen closet. This will afford each set proper rotation and a rest from use and a rest from wash. We also recommend that you wash matching linens (e.g. sheets and pillowcases) together, as each piece should be cared for similarly, regardless of whether or not it is stained or soiled.
Shrinkage: Linens washed in hot water or dried at hot temperatures will shrink excessively. Luke warm or cold wash and low heat dry or line-dry are the usual recommended settings.
Our linens are sized to allow for 3%-4% shrinkage in length & width.
