So, how do you choose between percale and sateen? Let's give you a quick explanation of the differences between our two fabric choices and then you can decide which one is better for your sleep comfort.

The technical difference between Takasa Warm + Luxurious Sateen and Takasa Cool + Crisp Percale is the way they are woven. The functional difference is in the feel and warmth of the material.

Takasa Organic and Fairtrade Certified Cotton Bed Sheets

Percale has a weave of a traditional one-yarn-over and one-yarn-under grid, giving it a matte finish and a lightweight, breathable texture. High in durability, it gets more comfortable with every wash. The feel of percale is crisp and cool, making it ideal for warmer sleepers.

Sateen sheets are woven using a one-yarn-under and three-yarn-over weave. This method exposes more thread surface and gives it a silky feel and sheen. The tighter weave on sateen gives it the feeling of satin (without the expense and fragile nature of satin). It’s also more heavyweight than percale, making it ideal for year-round comfort and warmth.

The Takasa team likes to alternate depending on the season - Warm + Luxurious in the cooler winter months, and Cool + Crisp in the warmer summer months.
