DID YOU KNOW THAT:  
Below, you can see the types of yarn we use for the various product groups

  • Egyptian cotton, which is the finest cotton type with the longest fibres, is grown in most cotton-producing countries. The name is therefore a quality description rather than an indication of the country of origin.

  • Combed yarns are the optimal yarn quality – and therefore the most expensive on the market. Combed yarn is ring-spun, which means that the yarn is twisted. The more twists, the stronger and smoother the yarn.
  •  
  • Flax and cotton yarns with medium-long fibres ensure optimal drying capacity and strength. That is why this combination is used for the GEORG JENSEN DAMASK kitchen collection.

  • Sanforising helps stabilise the fabric and minimise shrinkage after washing.
  •  
  • Mercerising is a permanent finishing process of cotton products, which results in a smooth, glossy look. The treatment also strengthens the fibres and makes them more dirt-resistant.
  •  
  • The fibre-length of the cotton influences its quality. Long fibres produce stronger, better yarn. As a result, only 3-5% of the world’s harvest can be used for the GEORG JENSEN DAMASK collections.
