Buyer's Guide to SFERRA Percale Bedding

RSS

SFERRA offers a variety of percale sheet collections to suit your style and budget

As a leading retailer of SFERRA bed linens, we regularly field calls asking for help choosing among the brand's many stunning percale collections. These are some of our favorite inquiries! We begin by congratulating the client for investing in luxury bedding -- always a smart decision -- and thanking them for soliciting our input. We love this part of our job. At Fine Linen and Bath, we've built a reputation for delivering a concierge buying experience, so we're always happy to provide individual guidance with such important purchases.

Our short answer is that, among SFERRA's percale collections, you can't go wrong. All of their percale sheets are pleasingly cool and crisp with a signature soft feel. With that said, the varying collections are differentiated by price point, style, range of color options, thread count, and feel. Much of this comes down to personal preference and, of course, budget.

What are percale sheets?

Percale sheets are a plain weave and characterized by a matte finish and crisp feel. Cotton percale linens are light, incredibly soft and breathable. Percale sheets have a tight, flat cotton weave with a crisp feel similar to a dress shirt. Because of Percale's tighter weave you would think it would make you warmer but due to the thinner yarn used, Percale sheets provide you with a cooler sleeping experience. Percale sheets are better for those who ‘sleep hot' or live in a warm climate by providing a cooler sleep year-round.

The following guide will help you compare SFERRA's most popular percales; for discussion purposes, we will address them in order, from “good” to “dream” quality. Whichever SFERRA's percale sheet collection you ultimately choose, you are going to love sleeping in these sheets!
