What You Are About to Know About the Magic of Egyptian Cotton in Socks Manufacturing:

  1. Egyptian cotton has various types! Get to know the finest of them all.
  2. Egyptian cotton is different from the other types of cotton. Know how it can be the most beneficial for your socks.
  3. What Moody Socks Factory can support you with. 

1) Revealing the Secrets of Egyptian Cotton Trees: Their Types and Benefits

First things first, let’s scratch the surface and introduce to you the core of Egyptian cotton. That cotton has grown along the fertile Nile River valley, which is categorized as one of the top fertile areas for harvesting in the world. The fertile Nile River valley has the power of balancing among three of the crucial resources to the world: sun, humidity, and soil. What’s worth mentioning is that such a balance leads to the most suitable climate for cotton growth.

Upon growth, Egyptian cotton is divided into three types, distinguished by the length of the cotton fiber (also known as the staple). The three types of staples are:

  • Extra-Long Staple (ELS)
  • Long-Staple (LS)
  • Regular cotton.

Our golden rule in this regard is: you can always measure cotton quality according to the length of its fibers; the longer the fibers are, the better the cotton is. 

Egyptian Giza Cotton: The Finest of All

Gossypium barbadense, also known as extra-long staple cotton (ELS), is a species of cotton plants that is continuously cultivated to produce that specific length of fibers. The “Egyptian Giza” breed falls under ELS cotton, which is the only breed able to develop the longest staples, and accordingly, the finest. (1) 

FYI: That finest breed is exactly what we use to manufacture your perfect wholesale socks! 

2)Why Egyptian Cotton is a Superior Choice for Your Socks Than The Other Cotton Types:

Quoting Moody Socks Factory experts: “no type of cotton is like Egyptian cotton.” Your socks sales have the potential to flourish like NEVER before on this cotton’s shoulders! Let us start the cotton war and give you sufficient proof!

Egyptian Cotton vs. Regular Cotton: 

Egyptian Cotton Regular Cotton
Egyptian cotton is handpicked. Regular cotton is picked by machine.
The privilege of handpicking over machine picking is huge! And it actually has a very positive effect on the quality of the yarn. HOW?

  • It allows the cotton fibers to be handled delicately.
  • It reduces the risk of splicing as less stressed is placed on the fibers, keeping them intact.
  • It plays a major part in the longevity of the cotton.
  • It can withstand frequent washing because it is stronger.
The picking by machine process places more stress on the cotton fiber and results in a weaker yarn that splices which can create a coarser texture erasing the comfort factor out of your socks! 
Egyptian cotton also has a smaller diameter that allows more threads per square inch, and accordingly, creates the strongest socks anyone is looking for!  Regular cotton has a bigger diameter. 

Apparently, round (1) goes to Egyptian cotton! 

Maybe in the next round, another type of cotton can compete? 

Let’s figure out!

Egyptian Cotton vs. Pima Cotton:

Egyptian Cotton Pima Cotton
Egyptian cotton is made from the highest quality long-staple fiber; that’s where its strength, softness, and resistance to stress and pilling came from. Pima cotton, although it comes with many of the properties similar to Egyptian cotton, it is considered to be a secondary material. 
Egyptian cotton is an ideal investment for socks because it can last for years, that’s why it’s worth the investment.  Pima cotton from the other hand is a better color absorber than normal cotton.  
The Egyptian cotton feel is tremendously soft and smooth creating the best comfortable pair of socks.   Pima is just as soft, boasting a high absorbency rate. 
Egyptian cotton can handle a washing temperature of up to 40 degree Celsius.  Pima cotton can be washed to 60 degree Celsius. 

It’s undefeatable and wins round (2) as well! 

Does Sea Island cotton stand a chance? 

Let us question no more!

Egyptian Cotton vs. Sea Island Cotton:

Egyptian Cotton  Sea Island Cotton
Fiber Length: >35mm (Giza 45, Giza 70, Giza 87, Giza 88, Giza 94) Fiber Length: >35mm

Usage: luxury bedding and socks.  Usage: often woven fabrics such as luxury shirts.

    Thanks to the strength of Egyptian cotton fiber, socks are empowered by solid fabrics that provide them with the ability to resist stress and quick damages!

  • Pure and soft:
