Sferra Giza 45® Percale.
Sferra Giza 45® is available in Jacquard, a plain Percale and a plain
Sateen weave. Each is unexpectedly light in weight and extraordinarily soft,
smooth and fine.
The jacquard and sateen both weigh a surprisingly light 3.4 ounces per square yard, with the Percale weighing an exceptionally light 2.38 ounces per square yard.
The jacquard, with it's subtle floral pattern, is absolutely beautiful. The
weave is not quite as smooth as the percale or the plain sateen, but that is
to be expected due to the texture of the jacquard weave. This is the finest
jacquard we have ever experienced.
For those who love Sateen weaves, the Sferra Giza 45® plain sateen is, by far
and away, the finest sateen we have ever experienced. With the silky drape
and flow of the best sateen's combined with a relatively ethereal lightness,
this sateen exceeded all of our expectations. Simply amazing!
Our favorite however, is the percale. We love bed linens that are cool, light
and crisp. The Sferra Giza 45® percale is all that and more: It is the lightest,
softest, finest and smoothest sheeting that we have ever experienced, bar none.
Sferra says: "Simply put, this is the finest cotton in the world. Usually available only for the finest men's shirts, our bedding made with Giza 45 cotton is the softest, smoothest and most luxurious that you will ever find. From the longest staple cotton grown in the fertile valley of the river Nile to the master craftsmen in Italy who have woven it to its stunningly smooth finish. Cotton this beautiful defies thread count. Available in White and Ivory only; for a pure, dazzling statement."
The jacquard has a subtle floral toss pattern and is finished with the understated
hemstitch. The (plain) sateen and percale sheeting is pristine, also finished
with the understated hemstitch. All coordinate beautifully with each other.
