Egyptian Percale Egyptian cotton percale sheets are a favorite among bedding connoisseurs. Why? To start, Egyptian cotton is one of the finest types of cotton in the world. It is stronger, softer and has more luster than other types of cotton. Percale weave creates a smooth, matte finish fabric that is stronger than a sateen weave. Together these make undeniably soft, luxurious and long lasting sheets. Among our Egyptian cotton percales are Lyric, Dwell Solids, Dwell Linen Edge, Frette Hotel Collection and Vera Bradley Cabana. Lyric is our high-end percale, at 500 thread count and Italian-made. It has a super fine, soft and smooth hand. It's available in open stock sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers, shams and even boudoir pillows.
