Best Egyptian Cotton Bed Sheets UK In 2022

For luxury but practical bedding, you won’t go wrong with Egyptian cotton sheets. They’re prized for their superior softness, durability and breathability, which makes staying in bed all the more enjoyable. Then there are the aesthetic benefits, the material gives you the crisp, clean look often you’ll see in hotels, transforming your bedroom into something from an interior design magazine.


Finding the right set can be hard though, so here's our round-up of the best Egyptian cotton bedding sets in the UK market. To keep the comparison fair, all sets are king size and include a duvet cover, fitted sheet and two pillows.

Marks & Spencer

Thread Count: 230

Marks & Spencer has a wide range of Egyptian cotton bedding and an impressive number of colour variants to choose from. Because of this, you’re sure to find a set that would complement the colour scheme of any bedroom. This is a very budget friendly option and with just 230 thread count, it won’t have the same luxurious feel associated with the higher thread count sets on our list. Though it lacks softness, it doesn’t necessarily lack in quality and could be a good option for your guest bedroom.

The White Company

Thread Count: 400

When The White Company are involved you know the bed set is going to be minimalist and impeccably stylish. They don’t fail to disappoint with this soft yet sophisticated bestseller from them. It’s made in Portugal, exclusively for the brand from a respectable 400 thread count Egyptian cotton fabric and finished with an immaculate trim of densely stitched cord. The set is stylish but the price for 400 thread count is definitely on the higher end, so know you are paying for the brand and not necessarily for additional comfort.

John Lewis & Partners

Thread Count: 400

John Lewis standard Egyptian cotton bedding is a great mid range option for those who want to upgrade to premium bedsheets on a modest budget. Made from 400 thread count Egyptian cotton fabric, it’s still certainly nothing to turn your nose up at, and comes in nine gorgeous colours. Note that the matching bed sheet is found on a different listing within their website, from the pillows and duvet cover.
