The longest and smoothest of all the natural fibers, Supima® cotton has the fewest loose “ends” that can form uncomfortable and unsightly pills (clusters of tangled fibers).
Supercale’s® percale weave maximizes the number of intersections, keeping the yarns from bending or stretching. The result is a sheet frequently described as “crispy” or “starchy.” Supercale’s crispness reduces the number of contact points between you and your sheets, to
increase ventilation and airflow and help you sleep cooler.
Percale weave’s high number of intersections also restricts the quantity of yarns that can be packed into a square inch. The typically lower threadcounts (180-300 versus 350-1400 for sateen) help you sleep cooler as body
heat and humidity can escape easily through gaps between the yarns.
Yesteryear’s percale sheets usually contained 20-50% polyester to reduce wrinkling. Superior Supima® yarn and improved finishes enable Supercale® sheets to be
wrinkle-resistant for 100 laundry cycles with only minor surface rumpling. Supercale®’s durable 100% cotton yarns hold up to wear and tear and can withstand hot water laundering and chlorine bleach.
Supercale® chemically-safe sheets contain
no irritants to damage the skin
or allergens to disrupt a user’s hormonal balance or trigger allergic reactions.
