Uncovering the confusion behind one of Eastern Accents' most asked questions.

The world of linens is vast, and for some, it can be intimidating to scour through the options, hoping they make the right choice based on whatever, if any, knowledge they have. Most people know about or have heard of thread count, but beyond that, their understanding of sheets is limited. One thing we hear most often is confusion over sateen and percale linens, so we thought we would try to help clear it up!

The difference between sateen and percale is the way they are woven.

Sateen is a multiple-yarns-over-1-yarn weave, while percale is a 1-yarn-over-1-yarn basketweave:

Let's delve further into what sets these two types of sheets apart from one another.


With a silky-smooth hand and a slight sheen, sateen woven sheets are soft and luxurious. This weave, despite its loose 3-over-1 structure, better retains heat and is perfect for cooler climates and air conditioned rooms.
