Chocolate and Vanilla. Summer and Spring. Salty and Sweet. There are certain things in life where one is not necessarily better than the other (I mean, can you really choose between pizza and cake?), they’re just different. When it comes to sheets, percale and sateen fall firmly into this category.
Meaning, while percale and sateen are different weaves, they’re both equally awesome, and which one you choose completely depends on your personal preferences.
But if you ask us, why choose when you can have both? There’s nothing like lounging in a crisp set of percale sheets in the summer, then cozying up to sateen come winter. To help you figure out which one (or both) is best for you, let’s dive into the specifics:
is a “plain” weave (that means the yarn goes one-over and one-under) resulting in a matte finish that’s cool and crisp to the touch. It’s lightweight and breathable, which makes it especially perfect for the summer months or for people that tend to get hot when they sleep. Our Classic collection is percale – shop it here.
has a silky-smooth finish with a buttery-soft feel and a luminous sheen. It’s a one-yarn-under and three-yarn-over weave, which also means it’s more tightly spun, slightly heavier in weight, and sleeps a bit warmer than percale. It’s perfect for year-round comfort. Our Luxe Collection is Sateen - shop it here.
We use high quality 100% long-staple cotton for all our sheets. The distinct weaves are what make each one special in its own way.
