What Is Percale Sheets?
Percale is a plain-weave fabric that is durable (it may stand up to years of use), lighter, cooler, and smooth to the touch. The fabric may feel softer after each washing and even after years of use, the sheets still resist pilling, especially for thread counts that are over 400.
What Does Percale Feel Like?
Crisp percale sheets have a smooth, cool feel, making them perfect for sleep all year-round. They're also an excellent choice for people who tend to get warm when sleeping.
How to Wash Percale Sheets?
It is very easy to wash percale sheets. Always wash the sheets in warm or cold water separate from other clothing items with a mild soap or natural, plant-based laundry detergent, and please avoid the use of bleach, as it may weaken the fibers and reduce the longevity.
Also, to reduce the wrinkling after each washing, you can tumble dry, remove, and fold the sheets promptly when dry or iron the sheets.
How to Choose the Best Bed Sheets: Sateen vs. Percale vs. Linen
When it comes to softness and quality, the best sheet options are either percale or sateen, both utilizing high-quality long-staple cotton, and the main difference between percale and sateen lies in the type of weave.
A traditional one-yarn-over and one-yarn-under weave, percale typically features a crisp, cool feel that improves with every wash. It's durable (it won’t pill over time), lightweight and breathable, ideal for warmer sleepers.
Sateen is the closest thing you can get to satin without spending a fortune. The one-yarn-under and three-yarn-over weave gives sateen a silky feel and luxurious sheen. Naturally wrinkle-resistant, sateen is more tightly woven and weighs slightly heavier than percale.
Breathable and robust Linen is the way to go if you value softness and durability but want a less formal look for your bed. It’s fine for all seasons and all types of sleepers.
Does Thread Count really matter?
Yes and no. Thread count is often used to indicate a sheet’s smoothness and durability, which, however, isn’t always reliable. High thread count is a factor, but the type of fabric used can be more important.
