Casa Del Bianco – Q & As

We hope the information below is helpful in your purchase and care of Casa Del Bianco custom luxury linens. If you need additional assistance, our experts are always ready to help you at 866.249.9224.

Selecting and Buying Linens

What's the most important thing to consider when buying sheets?

There is no right fabric. There is only fabric that is right for you. Your own personal taste and your intended use should dictate your choice. Cotton – percale or sateen – sheets are smooth, strong and comfortable and relatively easy care. Linen is the strongest fiber, but the least uniform. Linen fabric has great airflow for coolness, but its irregular surface creates sheets that are less soft and wrinkle more than other fibers. Silk sheets are woven from extremely smooth, thin uniform yarns and tend to feel more luxurious, but they are substantially warmer than either cotton or linen and they require more care.

Why is Egyptian cotton considered the best?

Egyptian cotton has the longest fibers that when spun produce the smoothest yarns for weaving. The result is the most comfortable cotton fabric. Linens made of Egyptian cotton also pill less (balling of loose fibers on the fabric surface) and offer greater durability so they last longer.

What's the difference between percale and sateen?

Their constructions make each feel and perform differently. Percale is woven with the same number of threads in the warp and weft on the loom. They interlace evenly in a basket weave. This balanced weave produces a strong fabric with maximum airflow to keep you cool in summer. Sateen is woven with an uneven number of threads in the warp and weft. More threads float over the fabric surface producing its characteristic beautiful sheen, but also creating a fabric that is less porous with less airflow and is consequently warmer. Since sateen is an unbalanced weave, there is also more possibility of surface pilling from friction of the unbalanced threads rubbing together. On the plus side, sateen sheets require less ironing than percale.

What is the truth about thread count as a measure of quality?

Thread count is very misunderstood. Higher thread counts do not assure comfort or quality. After a certain point, the denser the number of threads per square inch, the heavier and less supple the fabric becomes. A very high thread count (800 and above) sheet will be hot and heavy on the body and you’ll feel like you’re sleeping under a tablecloth. We recommend 400 to 600 for optimal comfort. With bed linens, it is the weight per square meter that counts. The optimal weight for sheets is 110 grams per square meter.

What is so special about Italian linens?

Without a doubt, it’s the three processes called the “finishing” – bleaching, burning and mercerization – which are done better in Italy than any other place in the world. Manufacturers may buy fine Egyptian cotton yarn, weave it anywhere in the world on the best German looms, but if they don’t “finish” in Italy, the fabric will be inferior. The same holds true for wool, silk, cashmere and leather finished in Italy.
