I have always been annoyed by misleading advertising in the media and the internet by marketing sleep products. Organic wool is one of my favourites. Canada is the world second largest producer of organic wool which is was 300 pounds last year. It is all marketing.
The world record for thread count of cotton is 174 and that was set in a lab. in Germany. The Federal Standards Agency in a letter to the Textile Journal 2005 said that it will not regulate thread count.
Natural cotton is now only produced in a area near Bandos, Equador and production is limited to making nets for agricultural productions.
It is illegal in most cotton producing countries to grow natural cotton.
