Other “organic sheets” use organic cotton that is thicker, shorter and rougher than conventional (non-organic) cotton fiber. The short (1/3 rd shorter than non-organic cotton) fiber produces coarse yarns, which produce rough-feeling sheets. Toxic substances and chemicals are required to soften and smooth these so-called “organic sheets.
There are about 20 different types of chemical finishes used in the production of conventional sheets. Some solve problems with sheet production (examples: stability finishes; whitening finishes; softening finishes; dying and printing finishes; cleaners, bleaches; etc.) Other finishes expand the usefulness of sheets (examples: softening finishes; body building finishes; easy-care and durable press finishes; soil release; anti-static; anti-pilling; colorfastness; anti-microbial, etc.) Some chemicals bond permanently to the cotton fiber and do not wash out. Often these are helpful (colorfast dyes that outlast the life of our sheets) but for sleepers who wish to avoid hazardous chemicals at night they defeat the purpose of chemical-safe sheets. Finally, when softening finishes wash away, other so-called “organic sheets” become rough and scratchy.
The genius of Moreganic™ Organic sheets is a superior construction that doesn’t rely on chemical finishes for softness and smoothness. Instead, superior certified organic fiber -- 25% longer and smoother -- is used in production. Fewer chemical substances are required, safer alternatives can be used (Moreganic™ Organic sheets are cleaned with baking soda) and lower levels of chemicals are used during production.
Moreganic™ Organic sheets test as the softest organic sheets after multiple washings In our RealFeel™ labs. Softer than conventional (non-organic) sheets with similar threadcounts, the softness and smoothness are permanent. Moreganic™ Organic sheets change least of all organic sheets with constant laundering.
Other so-called “organic sheets” claim the GOTS® -certification. But Moreganic™ Organic sheets feature BOTH industry safety certifications:
- ECO SAFE: Moreganic™ Organic sheets are certified organic from seed to shelf(Cert. Nbr. on request) by Global Organized Textile Standard (GOTS®), the highest standard of certification for organic cotton and fibers.Organic cotton regenerates without genetically modified seeds and grows naturally without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Sustainable growth conserves water and energy in all stages of production while ensuring safe working conditions.
- CHEMICAL SAFE: Moreganic™ Organic sheets are certified free from the presence of 100 toxic chemicals at the final stage of production (Cert. Nbr. on request) by Oeko-Tex®,using the strictest (Level I) human-ecological laboratory residue test.
