Because we spend a good portion of the night there. Because beautiful bedding can sublimate a bedroom. Because it's nice to be (literally) in beautiful sheets. For all these reasons, Merci continues its exploration of the ideal bedroom with a new range of cotton percale bed linen. Merci's cotton percale offers an exceptional sleep experience, elegantly sublimating your bedroom.
What is cotton percale bedding?
Cotton percale is a weaving technique that can be used with various types of fibers, offering ideal softness for a restful night's sleep. The cotton percale used by Merci is soft, cool, and lightweight. The pieces are made from the longest cotton fibers, with a tight weave of 200 threads per inch (2.54 cm), giving them exceptional durability and extreme softness. Merci's cotton percale bed linen is made in Portugal and is OEKO-TEX® certified, ensuring quality and the absence of harmful substances. Made from natural cotton fibers, it is an environmentally friendly option compared to some synthetic materials. It is also biodegradable, reducing its impact on the environment at the end of its lifespan. Cotton percale has many advantages over other fabrics. Firstly, its softness provides a feeling of comfort and well-being as soon as you slip into bed. It is also highly breathable, allowing air to circulate freely through the fabric, regulating body temperature and ensuring a cool feeling throughout the night. Additionally, it is durable, resistant to daily wear and maintains its quality and appearance over time. Finally, it is easy to care for, offering convenience in daily life.
How to care for cotton percale bedding?
To maintain the beauty and ensure the suppleness of your Merci cotton percale sheets over the years, follow these simple tips:
- For washing, it is recommended to use a washing machine with a delicate cycle at a moderate temperature. Cotton percale sheets become softer and more supple with each wash, eliminating the need for ironing. However, if you prefer to iron your bed linen, it is advisable to use a medium temperature setting to avoid damaging the delicate fibers.
- When it comes to drying, it is best to air dry your cotton percale sheets in a shaded area, away from direct sunlight, to prevent the colors from fading over time. If you use a dryer, choose a low-temperature setting to preserve the fabric's quality and avoid putting excessive strain on the fibers
- For storage, it is recommended to keep your cotton percale bed linen in a dry place, away from direct sunlight. This will help preserve its quality, freshness, and prolong its lifespan
