Sateen- Sateen is a cotton fabric with a luster resembling that of satin. Jacquard- Jacquard is a way of weaving cloth that allows for some intensely gorgeous detailed designs to be woven directly into the fabric. Egyptian Cotton- Egyptian Cotton is the fine, somewhat brownish long-staple cotton that is grown in Egypt; believed to be derived from sea island cotton or by hybridization with Peruvian cotton. percale - Percale is a tightly woven, plain weave fabric that consists of one horizontal yarn over, one vertical yarn under. Percale fabric has a matte appearance and is generally made from Egyptian cotton or high quality combed cotton. Combing is a process that removes any short, inferior quality fibres from the yarn, to produce a smooth yarn, suitable for a percale weave. Percale has a thread count of 200 or higher and its tight weave produces a smooth, crisp cotton fabric, of a medium weight. Percale is perfect for bed linen as it is luxurious and smooth to sleep under and washes and wears extremely well. It can be finished in a number of ways.
Before selecting your sheets, it is important to know the depth of your mattress. Here are some dimensions to use as a guide:
- Standard- 7 to 9 inches
- Deep- 10 to 15 inches
- Extra Deep- 15 inches to as high as 22 inches
Nothing can improve a night's sleep like a quality pillow... and nothing can spruce up your bed more than the right sized pillows. Here is a guide to the common sizes:
- Standard- 20 x 26 inches. Uses a Standard size pillowcase. Use one on a Twin bed, two on a Full or Queen, and three on a King bed.
- Queen- 20 x 30 inches. Uses the same pillow combination as the Standard. Since there is no Queen size pillowcase, use a Standard pillowcase with a Queen size pillow. It fills up a Standard pillowcase more completely, and it is also a perfect fit across the top of your Queen size bed.
- King- 20 x 36 inches. You guessed it, use these on your King size bed. These extra long pillows are perfectly paired across the top of both an Eastern and Cal-King bed, and use a King pillowcase.
- Euro- 26 x 26 inches. These large, square pillows are great to prop yourself up in bed with. They also add a decorative accent when covered with a decorative pillow sham in place of a Euro pillowcase.

Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet, and the more likely it will wear well-or even soften-over time. Good sheets range anywhere from 200 to 800, although you'll occasionally see numbers over 1,000.
This is a matter of personal choice. Linens woven of natural fibres do have a tendency to crease, but they also iron beautifully and last much longer. How you wash and launder your bed linen can impact the level of creasing. Line drying, rather than tumble drying, will cause far less wrinkles. Smoothing and shaking out your bed linen before hanging it on the washing line or clothes horse will allow it to dry with far less wrinkles. If you choose to iron your bed linen, it is advisable to do so when it is damp, using a steam iron on a warm setting.
Yes, most sheeting can be tumble dried. Always refer to the care label for drying instructions first.
Unfortunately, this is not a question that can be answered simply. In a technical sense, you can only weave a certain amount of fibres into an area of fabric and so one would assume that there should be a standardised maximum level of thread count. However, since there are currently no regulating standards, manufacturers have different methods of grading their thread counts. A fabric with a true, high thread count should incorporate fine, long staple, quality yarns to produce a finished fabric that is light and fine. Let price be your guide. If it’s too good to be true, then it most probably is.
The best thread count is the one that feels best to you. Different fabrics require different thread counts to achieve their finishes. Rather than question the “best thread count”, question the fabric’s yarn quality, where the fabric has been woven and the way that it feels. A true, high quality, Egyptian cotton fabric with a high thread count, will have an extremely fine and silky finish because it is the culmination of the finest long staple yarns and expert weaving processes. A percale Egyptian cotton fabric with a thread count of over 225, will be incorporate less, thicker yarns, to produce a fabric that is denser. As a general rule, the finer the yarn and the higher the thread count, the more natural lustre you will see in the fabric and the smoother and finer that it will become.
