Percale Sheet Sets Egyptian cotton percale sheet sets are a bedding classic. Percale weave has been favored for decades, until more recently when sateen weave have become more popular. Percale is a one up one under weave that creates a smooth, matte finish fabric that is stronger than a sateen weave. Among our Egyptian cotton percales are Lyric, Dwell Solids, Dwell Linen Edge, Dwell Trim, Frette Hotel Collection and Vera Bradley Cabana. Lyric is an exceptional percale at 500 thread count and Italian-made. It has a super fine, soft hand that is truly luxurious. It's our bedding buyer's favorite sheet - - and she's tried everything!!
