After relocating cross-country and settling into a new home, I upgraded to a queen-sized bed, necessitating new bed linens. While I had been using sateen sheets, I discovered my preference leans towards percale. Unlike the more tightly woven sateen, percale sheets offer a lighter, breathable texture, often described as having the crispness of button-down dress shirts. Given that I tend to feel warm while sleeping, the switch to percale was logical.
For insights and recommendations, I found The Luxe Strategist’s comprehensive post particularly useful. Following my research, I purchased percale sheets from brands like Brooklinen, Quince, and Pact. I’ve been using these sheets for a minimum of six months, with some even stretching beyond a year. Here’s my comparison:
Post-Dryer Appearance: It’s worth noting that percale sheets generally have a tendency to wrinkle. However, this isn’t a concern for me. To provide a visual, here’s how the Brooklinen and Pact sheets appeared straight from the dryer.
