Why Your Percale Sheets are a Great Investment

Why Your Percale Sheets are a Great Investment

When it comes to bedding, it’s easy to overlook our sheets. We spend a lot of time and money focusing on decorative elements like pillow shams, duvet covers, and quilts, but when it comes down to it, our sheets are the unsung heroes in the bedroom. By choosing the right linens, not only does your comfort get an immediate bedtime boost, but your health benefits in ways you might not expect, and we can all sleep well with that!

Here’s a little breakdown of why we’re so passionate about our best-selling Luxury Percale Sheets. We’ve done the research, and trust us: we know the value of a good night’s sleep.

It’s the end of a long day, you’re tired, and you’re ready for bed. What you want and need is comfort. If you’ve ever been away from home for a long stretch, you’ve probably found yourself saying, “I can’t wait to get home to my own bed!”  Your bed feels like home, and it’s where you deserve to feel the most comfortable. 

Sheets play an important role in that comfort. This is the fabric that you wrap yourself in for almost one-third of your life, after all. They act as an envelope, offering a buffer between your body, your mattress, and your duvet. The most comfortable sheets provide natural perspiration wicking, offer insulation from the cold, and are incomparably breathable. Ideal sheet fabric should be soft to the touch, feel amazing against your skin, and help you maintain your preferred sleeping temperature.

Health Benefits

Having the right sheets can be the difference between night and day for people with allergies or sensitive skin. If your sheets have been processed with formaldehyde, you can develop or aggravate skin irritations and might even find yourself troubled with new breathing difficulties. Knowing that we’re in our beds for nearly 3,000 hours each year, exposing yourself to hazardous chemicals is needless. The simple purchase of quality linens made from natural fibers can help you breathe better, literally and figuratively.

Easy Care

Since your body touches your sheets every single night, you’re going to want to launder linens more frequently than other fabrics in your home--or your bed, for that matter. Purchasing sheets that are made with high-quality fabric from a reputable source will let you enjoy your linens for years to come. Percale allows easy maintenance of a luxury product that’s made to last.

Don’t fall into the trap of buying wrinkle-free sheets. You’ll be trading convenience for chemicals that can ultimately harm you. They also don’t wear well over time, leading to worn, limp sheets as those chemicals wash off.

Washing percale sheets


You’ve found those beautiful throw pillows and the perfect duvet cover, but your sheets can also offer beauty every night when you turn back the bed. Go for the lux touch of the right sheets, and that natural beauty will help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Environmentally Friendly

If you have the choice, why wouldn’t you make a purchase that’s environmentally friendly? You can get comfort, longevity, and beauty, all while doing your part to help the planet, and the purchase of percale cotton sheets is a step in that direction.

Sleep Well

It’s estimated that between 50 and 70 million Americans suffer from sleep loss. Sleeplessness or a lack of sustained sleep can result in a number of health issues like obesity, anxiety or depression, and cardiovascular issues. Poor sleep can also contribute to reduced job performance, attention issues, and irritability and affect decision-making, motor skills, and reflexes. 

Something as simple as investing in the right sheets can help you reach the level of sleep that eludes so many people. Thomas Lee’s percale sheets are long-lasting and actually get softer with each and every wash. They’re easy to care for, hypoallergenic, and eco-friendly.  

If you’re looking for the best sleep of your life, give Thomas Lee a try.
