Like basic_weave sheets, percale has the same number of warp and weft threads, but the cotton is combed, woven tightly, and is of a higher quality than basic weaves. Percale sheets are strong and durable, with a crisp feel that many people love. Choose percale sheets with a thread count between 200 and 400 if you want a lighter fabric, 400 to 600 if you prefer a heavier fabric.
Egyptian Cotton __ Egyptian cotton is a strong, lustrous cotton with extra_long fibers grown only in Egypt. Its extraordinary quality is due to the long growing season in that country. Sheets made from 100 percent Egyptian cotton with a high thread count are considered by some to be the most luxurious sheets because of their breathability, strength, and softness. Look for a thread count over 300 to ensure you purchase quality sheets.
