FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

SHEETS

What’s the difference between Percale and Sateen?

Percale is the traditional one yarn over, one yarn under weaving style, while Sateen is one-yarn-under and three-yarn-over weaving style. The result is a different look, feel, and durability to the finished fabric.

Percale sheets are most commonly described to be crisp and cool. Percale is a better choice for you if you want a cool and airy feel. Hotels almost exclusively use Percale sheets. Percale tends to soften with washes.

Sateen is soft and buttery. Sateen’s tighter weave, exposed surface, and heavier weight give it a luxurious silk-like feel and shine. It’s ideal for all seasons.

What difference does thread count make?

Thread count makes a bigger difference in lower thread count sheets, below 250 threads. All of our sheets are 270+ threads. This means they're all high quality, luxury sheets. Some people mistakenly believe that a higher thread count equals higher quality. This isn't true.

How do I wash my sheets? Should I iron them?

Wash the sheets seperate from towels or other clothing, the extra water and room gives them a better clean. If you need to brighten white sheets, add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to the wash water instead of bleach. Loosely form each sheet into a ball before placing them in a machine.

Use lukewarm water and a gentle wash cycle. If possible, dry the sheets on a clothesline, however if you have to use a dryer, pick low temperature. Smooth the wrinkles by hand after drying and fold the sheets if you're gonna use them later.

Avoid ironing.

Wash weekly!
