When purchasing a set of sheets, consumers should always be looking for cotton products made from long staple cotton (commonly referred to as ELS cotton). The long fibres of ELS cotton make a stronger and softer yarn and in turn weave into a much stronger and softer fabric. Most high thread count sheets are made from ELS cotton because a long fibre is needed to make a very thin, yet strong, yarn.
Percale stands for the way the fabric has been woven. In percale the yarns are woven in one over one, whereas Sateen is four over one. The one over one (percale) weave create a more even and stronger, also denser fabric. Single Ply of 300 thread count Percale make this better than a 600 thread count as most of the 600tc are 4 pick insertions. Insertions means when weaving the fabric. You have vertical yarns being inserted or hemmed by the horizontal yarns. If the horizontal hemming yarns are being done with 1 yarn at time it’s called single pick insertion, if it’s using 4 yarns, it’s called 4 pick insertion. The higher the number of insertions the faster the weave and the quality of the fabric becomes less. The reason for this is to save money. This is not the same thing as 2-ply sheets or 3 ply sheets which refer to the yarn being used in weaving and not how it’s being woven. Therefore, using the superior weave and woven in the best authentic way and is made from Egyptian cotton which is also ELS (long staple cotton) grown along the Nile you will be purchasing a superior quality product
PIMA or SUPIMA: Is high quality cotton whose long fibre staple is somewhat similar to that of Egyptian cotton. The differences are geographical only. Pima is grown in the south-western part of the U.S. and Egyptian is grown along the Nile River. Supima is made from long staple Pima. The soft hand feel of Pima and Supima make them very desirable in bedding. Expect to find Thread Count from 200-300.
