Sferra GIZA 45 Percale Pillowcases
100% Egyptian Cotton Percale, Made in Italy.
What wondrous traits might a bed linen named after a specific genus of cotton offer. Something akin to a richly detailed dream. Of all the world’s cottons, (and, for that matter, of all Egyptian cotton), Giza 45 is the dreamiest, able to be spun by our expert Italian craftsmen into a super-fine yarn that can thus be woven into a sleek, supple fabric. Which, it turns out, beckons as one of the finest, most inviting of places to lay one’s head, providing an enveloping cocoon of soft, comfortable perfection. Here, the Giza 45 cotton yarns are woven into a lightly crisp and smooth percale, and skillfully stitched with an Italian-made lace insert that highlights its airy fretwork patterning to best effect. Lace sits at the cuff of the sheets and cases, forms a U-shaped design atop the duvet cover and alongside the flanged edges, as well as embellishing each side of the shams. Simply stated: there’s nothing else like it. Care Points: Machine wash in warm water, gentle cycle. Use non-chlorine bleach as needed. Wash dark colors separately. Tumble dry on low heat, removing while still damp. For best results, iron on cotton setting.
