What goes into the sheets you're buying? Most of our sheets are made of 100% cotton, though we also offer options with natural linen, a bamboo blend (70% bamboo rayon/30% cotton) and soft touch microfleece.
How are the threads woven together? Percale is made with a balanced weave, which means the same number of threads across as down. A sateen weave has more threads across than down, which catches the light in such a way as to give it a shine. Percale weaves yield a fabric that's crisp, smooth and durable. Sateen-woven fabrics produce a very soft, lustrous feel.
Thread count is a measure of the coarseness or fineness of fabric. It measures by the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch of fabric.
