250 Thread-Count = 125 vertical threads and 125 horizontal threads
750 Thread-Count ALSO = 125 vertical threads and 125 horizontal threads
The DIFFERENCE: the 750 thread-count sheet set has 3-ply yarns, they then triple the thread-count.
3-ply yarns are often made of cheaper, weaker cotton and are less desirable than high quality, extra-long staple single-ply yarns.
The bottom line: Higher thread-count sheets are a total marketing gimmick. The sad fact is that these sheets are often an indicator of inferior cotton and lower quality fabric.
We wanted the best weave for your night’s sleep. Crisp, comfortable, cool and long lasting.
The Percale Weave has the perfect characteristics for a great night’s sleep.
- A crisp, cool hand-feel.
- The same weave as luxury hotel linens or your Grandma’s comfy sheets.
- Great durability while maintaining softness.
- Breathability; it provides a ‘cool’ sleep on warm nights and ‘warm’ sleep on cool nights.
- Will stand up to years of use.
- Easy to care for.
How Percale compares to Sateen:
- Percale will sleep cooler, last longer and create a lovely micro-climate around your body to help regulate your body temperature.
- Sateen will initially feel nice but degrade quickly with washes and use, sleep hot and pill more with use.
The foundation of a great set of sheets and a great sleep is the cotton. Egyptian and Supima® cotton share common ancestry. We wouldn’t settle for second best for our cotton, which is why we use Supima® cotton for our sheets.
Unlike Egyptian cotton, Supima® is grown exclusively in the USA, and is verified for quality and consistency. Grown in California, nearly 3x the price of standard cotton, we use only the finest Supima® cotton in our sheets.
- Less than 1% of the cotton grown globally and less than 3% of the cotton grown in the USA can be called Supima®.- Supima® cotton’s 35% longer staple length contributes to 45% stronger fibers (in comparison to lower-quality, long-staple cotton.)
