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.
But even after narrowing it down to cotton, you still have choices. Does it really make a difference if the cotton is Egyptian, Pima, or no particular variety? Well, yes, actually, it does. Egyptian cotton is the highest_quality cotton in the world, with long, silky fibers that weave into exceptionally soft and comfortable sheets. Pima is a similar, long_fiber variety of cotton that is grown in the United States, Australia, and Peru. It's often sold under the brand name Supima.
