Percale __ Percale is a plain_weave fabric made from both combed and carded cotton yarns. This type of weave is lightweight and closely woven, producing a smooth finish and crisp feel. If you like sheets that feel a bit starched and crisp against your skin, this is the weave for you.
While you'll find many choices of bed sheet fabric, cotton and cotton/poly blends are the most popular by far. But although blends are better at resisting wrinkles __ and are durable and inexpensive __ nothing beats the comfort and breathability of 100% cotton sheets.
