Feeling a little sensitive about sensitive skin? With so many possible ways to irritate your skin, your sheets definitely shouldn’t be one of them. How about a luxury set of percale sheets that won’t anger your sensitive skin? Here at Thomas Lee, we hear you loud and clear. That’s why our percale sheets are made with a pure finish to give you a purely wonderful night’s sleep.
We’ve heard horror stories of friends and family buying a set of sheets, not realizing what they were about to snuggle into. Hello, allergic reaction! Nobody has time to deal with an allergy to their sheets. Your bed should be your retreat at the end of the day and your cozy cocoon at the start of each day. With our percale sheets, your bed will be your oasis.
“Manufacturers treat sheets with chemicals to impart characteristics such as stain and wrinkle resistance,” explained Thomas Lee Sheets owner, Elizabeth Zook. “These resins remain in the fabric, and some of them are pretty harsh. Many have formaldehyde as a component, which can not only cause skin irritation but it can ‘off-gas’ into the home atmosphere and cause breathing problems in sensitive individuals.”
Chemicals and Sheets Just Don’t Mix
At the end of a long day, no one is eager to cuddle into a bed of chemicals. No, chemicals simply don’t belong in your bed. Even worse? Those resin-treated fabrics lose softness and breathability over time, so even if you’re not dealing with skin sensitivity, you’re still fighting a losing battle with your linens.
Chemically treated sheets also tend to wear poorly and just don’t last as long as sheets made from untreated fabrics. Instead of spending money on a product that isn’t going to last long-term and might even make you sick, opt instead for premium cotton bed linens like our classic percale sheets, which provide unmatched comfort and long-lasting durability.
“At Thomas Lee, we choose not to treat our bedding fabrics with chemical resins,” says Elizabeth. “Thomas Lee sheets and pillowcases have what is referred to as a ‘pure’ finish. For us, quality and lasting comfort are paramount. It’s The Thomas Lee Difference.”
Rest comfortably--and confidently--each night, knowing that our percale sheets weren’t treated with harsh resins during the finishing process. You don’t have to sacrifice quality when it comes to your cotton sheets. Rely on Thomas Lee to provide the highest quality cotton bedding that you can trust. It’s what we do.
