How is Cotton Sateen different from Percale?
Cotton Sateen: Cotton sateen is named for the satin type weave of this 100% cotton fabric. A special weaving process is used to place more lengthwise yarns on the surface of the fabric for a shiny look and very soft feel. Cotton sateens are generally very durable. Percale: A minimum thread count of 180 is required to be classified as percale. Perhaps the most well-known word associated with sheets, percale is soft, durable and long-lasting.
