What is the difference between percale and cotton satin bed linen sets?

Cotton percale is a fabric composed of fine yarns with a thick structure, which is obtained by working the cotton in a plain weave, with a perfect perpendicularity between the weft and warp. Typically, the thinner the thread used, the higher the quality and lightness of the fabric. Percale sheets are particularly velvety and soft to the touch, soft and fresh even in summer, regardless of the temperature of the environment. Cotton satin, often used for the production of fine linens and sheet sets, is made in satin weave, that is with a prevalence of warp in the weave, and has a smooth and glossy finish. Cotton satin sheets are ideal at any time of the year: soft and enveloping in winter and cool and light on the skin in summer.
