50% Cotton/50% Polyester, 200 thread count percale sheet sets, comforters, pillow shams and bed skirts for conventional beds (inner spring mattresses, softside waterbeds, air mattresses, foam beds).
The fabric used to create our percale bedding products is domestically produced.
The thread counts is at least two hundred, and contain no more than 50% Polyester combined with 50% Cotton.
Percales of this quality can stand up to a great deal of abuse. They resist wrinkling and can be washed frequently, in whatever conditions desired (line or machine dry). Remember to wash your sheets seperate from other clothing or household bed and bath linens. This helps to prevent nubbing.
100% Cotton is more difficult to maintain than our 50% Polyester/50% Cotton.
Cotton bedding should be washed in cold water, and line or tumble dried. Bedding made of cotton will tend to wrinkle, and can be expected to shrink 1-2% the first time they are washed. This shrinkage is taken into account when the sheets are manufactured. For this reason, they may fit loosely before laundering, and provide a snug fit afterwards.
Satins come in many grades, based on weight. The weight that we use is called "Bridal Satin," which is the heaviest satin fabric. This is the same grade of fabric priimarily used in wedding gowns and formal ballroom gowns. Bridal Satin is not available in wide bolts, and therefore, all sheets, comforters and bedspreads made with Bridal Satin will have seams. Normally, sheet seams are in the center of the bed, where neither partner sleeps. The yarn used to make Bridal Satin is a 300-denier Acetate yarn, woven at 288 threads per square inch.
