Received an email from LL Bean this morning which had a subject line that said, "our crisp, cool percale bedding is now offered in floral patterns." That made me open the email right away where normally I just delete business emails.
I love percale sheets because they do dry crisp and have that cool feel. The problem is, most stores do not carry them anymore because most people seem to like the 700 thread count sheets which tend to feel more like flannel than crisp and cool. When you have the time to hang percale sheets outside to dry, they are even more wonderful for sleeping, the others just become like clean rags.
But the one area I differ with LL Bean is that I do not like floral sheets or floral anything. It makes me nervous to sleep on busy floral sheets. I am going to look around their site today and see if they have percale sheets in window pane, checked, striped or solid colors because they have them and other stores do not.
