Whilst Percale, Sateen, and Linen bedding has the same function, they all possess different qualities. Each are soft to touch, so it depends upon personal preference for a silky feel with a soft sheen; a crisper touch with a matte appearance; or a casual, laid back look.
My 100% long staple Egyptian cotton Percale sheets are crisp and cool, perfect for the warm summer months. They are finely woven, have a matte surface, and are light in weight. Percale is breathable, making it an ideal summertime choice.
My 100% long staple Egyptian cotton Sateen sheets have a soft, smooth surface, with a subtle sheen, and a silky feel. Sateen is a little thicker to touch, which makes it ideal for cooler weather. The sheets will cocoon your body, as it lies heavier than Percale.
Sateen is low maintenance, as you do not need to iron your Sateen sheets.
The epitome of laid back luxury, Linen bedding offers a relaxed elegance as an alternative to smooth, crisp cotton sheets.
Soft and cool to the touch, Linen is a breathable fibre, and is therefore suitable all seasons for both cool and warm sleepers. As Linen is a natural fibre, it is characterised by irregularities in its weave, which makes each product unique. These variations are not flaws, they are part of the story of the fabric, and the essence of the natural beauty of linen.
Linen bedding is easy to care for, and is also low maintenance, as it is not necessary to iron Linen sheets for a casual look.
