Percale: For U.S. Standards Percale simply means that the material is a minimum of 180 threads per square inch, however, many European mills, as with Italian bedding, will refer to their 100% cotton bedding as Percale or Percalle which in this case means that the material is a 100% cotton and a type of construction which is consistent with percale in the U.S, meaning a non sateen 100% bed sheet.

Thread Count: Thread count is determined by how many threads are in one square inch of fabric.  In the 180 count sheets, one square inch of fabric would have 100 threads going in one direction, with 80 threads going in the opposite  direction.  Add the 100 with the 80 and that equals the 180 thread count.

About Egyptian cotton Sheets

Throughout the past two centuries, Egyptian cotton has prevailed as one of Egypt's biggest competitive advantages. With an established reputation of being the "best" cotton in the world, its softness, strength and superior characteristics, have positioned products made of Egyptian cotton as the world's finest.

Egyptian cotton sheets has not gained such a reputation without reason. Egyptian cotton "is" the world's finest cotton and the following characteristics are what sets Egyptian cotton apart from other natural fibers:

1-The length of the fiber makes it possible to make the finest of yarns without sacrificing the strength of the yarn

2-The strength of the fiber makes fabrics more solid and more resistant to stress

3-Its ability to absorb liquids gives fabrics made of Egyptian cotton deeper, brighter and more resistant colors

4-Its softness increases with each washing

Egyptian cotton is hand picked which guarantees the highest levels of purity. In addition, hand picking puts no stress on the fibers - as opposed to mechanical picking - leaving the fibers straight and intact. All these factors have resulted in the Egyptian cotton being by far the best cotton in the world. Fabrics made of Egyptian Cotton are softer, finer and last longer than any other cotton in the world.

It was thought for ages that cotton was cotton and thread count was king when choosing quality sheets. That is no longer true. Consumer guidelines for buying bedding suggest that cotton from Egypt is superior to other cotton. Is this true and, if so, what is the big difference?

Egyptian cottons are used to create bedding of all types from sheets to pillowcases to comforters. The long staple or long fiber of Egyptian-grown cotton means that there is more continuous fiber to use when creating threads or yarns. This yarn is smaller in diameter yet stronger than other cottons. Smaller yarn means that more threads per square inch can be use to create stronger fabric which is light in weight yet breathes well.

More threads per inch mean that the thread count on the bedding label will be higher. Many buyers think that choosing high thread count sheets is the only gauge of quality. This is not true, but in the case of cotton grown in Egypt, the higher thread count means the fabric will be incredibly strong and will last for years and years. If cared for properly, Egyptian produced cotton fabric used for creating bedding products can last for decades.

The hand or feel of the sheets created from Egyptian grown cotton is a bit harder than other cottons when the bedding is new. However, with every single laundering, the cotton sheets from Egyptian fibers become softer and softer. Like a fine wine, age improves the Egyptian fiber cotton bedding and, unlike many products, you will prize your Egyptian fiber sheets of cotton more and more as they age and become soft and cuddly.

Cotton grown in the Egyptian fields will also produce less lint and therefore will not pill after repeated washings as some materials may do. At one time, the only way to obtain Egyptian fiber cotton sheets was to shop in high-end expensive stores. This is no longer true and most department stores and online bedding stores carry a selection of Egyptian produced cotton sheets and other bedding items for the buyer seeking this quality product.

King Cotton was once the name for the cotton grown in the Deep South of the United States. This cotton has much shorter fibers or staple than the Egyptian produced cotton. Egyptian fiber is now considered the king of all cottons for its durability and luxurious feel.  Choosing the right sheets made from the king of cotton, Egyptian produced fibers, you will experience a bed that is comfortable and cozy.

A word of caution regarding bedding labels: if the package says "cotton rich" the actual amount of cotton, whether Egyptian or other cotton, is not stated and can be a very small amount. It is better to select products that state 100% cotton or, if choosing a blend fabric, that clearly state the exact proportion of cotton in the bedding. This will ensure your product composition is one that you will be pleased with.

Care Instructions for your Down Comforter or Pillows

You just purchased or thinking about purchasing a Down Comforter or Pillow.  Here are some general Down Care Guide to help you protect your investment.

When you first unpack your comforter or down pillow they may appear flat and wrinkled, this is due to the packaging of your product.  You can restore the natural loft by vigorously shaking or fluffing in your dryer on LOW....  Add some tennis balls (in socks it balls are not new) or even a CLEAN pair of tennis shoes without shoestrings to help in the fluffing process.

It is advised and a GREAT ideal to air your new comforter or pillows outside about every 3 to 4 months to help in keeping them fresh and every week when you change your sheets and your duvet cover give your down comforter a vigorously shaking to loosen up the down.  This is help in keeping the loft of the natural down.

Down comfotrers should be used with a Duvet Cover to protect your investment.  There are some people that never have to wash their down comforter because they keep it in a Duvet Cover, hang it outside to air out and shake it when they change the bed and they have had great success in protecting their investment and have enjoyed their down comforter for years.
