Fine Egyptian Cottons
Borgs has discontinued the fine cottons in colors. What we have of black is the last we'll get.
This is an unmercerized combed cotton made from Egyptian long staple fiber that is easy to work with and super soft. 24/2 and 30/2 are available in bleached/white, unbleached/natural and black. Suitable for fine table linens and towels, combine with 16/1 singles linen for a crisper fabric. The Swedes frequently use fine cottons as the warp and add the color with singles linen for beautiful fabrics.
