About the Sferra Giza 45® fabrics:
The jacquard sateen and plain sateen weigh a surprisingly light 3.4 ounces per square yard, with the Percale (both the plain & lace) 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 and Dobby Stripe 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. The Lace Percale features a skillfully stitched Italian lace insert at the cuff of the flat sheets and pillow case and the sides of the shams. The lace on the duvet cover forms a U shaped design atop the duvet cover and alongside the flanged edges. Please note that the "Lace" fitted sheet does not have lace trim.
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."
Cotton Percale fabrics are generally lighter and cooler, compared to cotton Sateen fabrics. Sateens can offer warmth and a luxurious drape. Learn more about cotton Sateen and Percale fabrics.
