Most people know that thread count is a crucial factor in sheet selection. However, they might not know that weave also plays a role. Read on to discover how fabric weave can affect the quality of a sheet – and the quality of sleep you’re getting!
Two of the most common weave patterns for cotton sheets are Percale and Sateen. You’ve probably read or heard the terms before, but may not know what they exactly mean.
Percale refers to fabrics made with a one-over, one-under weaving pattern. This pattern creates strong, crisp fabrics with a matte finish. Percale sheets are lighter and more breathable, making them better suited for warmer months and climates.
