Learn About What Makes Our Sheets So Great!

    OUR YARN

    Our sheets at George Street Linen use only long staple 100% cotton fibres. 
    Using long staple cotton is ideal as when yarn is spun using longer fibres it produces the strongest and finest cotton which means little or no pilling.

    As these yarns are stronger and finer they produce extremely smooth and supple weaves. 
    We are also using the finest size of yarn available for sheeting (60’s, 80’s and 100’s), similar to what is used in luxury shirting fabrics to give you a smoother and lighter result.

    OUR WEAVES

    Both our weaves are 100% Cotton but they are distinctly different in texture.

    THE CRISP PERCALE  Shop 450TC Percale sheets
    Crisp Percale

    The Crisp Percale at George Street Linen we have chosen is an extremely fine percale weave. Percale is a very balanced weave, one-yarn-over and one- yarn-under, similar to a basketweave resulting in a matte finish with a cool & crisp feel. Lightweight, breathable and guaranteed to give you the best comfort.

    Exceptionally durable this sheet just gets better and better with every wash. Great for summer and also for warmer sleepers.

    SATEEN
    Sateen

    The Soft Sateen we have constructed is also using superfine yarns, 80’s & 100’s, woven as a traditional sateen, one-yarn-under and three-yarns-over, resulting in more yarns on the surface. This creates a luminous finish with a warm and buttery soft feel. Washed finish. Super for year-round comfort.
