Nap Pillowcase Single
- Care Details
Nap pillowcases are finished with a 2" cuff hem.
Pillowcase vs. Sham
Pillowcases and Shams are both used to protect pillow inserts, but there are a wide variety of constructions. Typically, pillowcases loosely encase the pillow and are open on the side, whereas shams are more fitted and employ some method of closure to keep the pillow in place.
We recommend using a Queen pillowcase for a Standard pillow insert as we do not offer a Standard pillowcase. The pillowcase will hang a bit longer over the edge of the insert. It can be tucked in to create an envelope closure or taken to a seamstress for a simple alteration.

Nap is our best-selling hotel fabric for a reason; it is a classic. It is also clear evidence that thread count is not everything.
This percale has a nice crisp finish that recalls the comfort of a lightly-starched white dress shirt. Nap will get softer and softer with every washing and it will be a favorite in your linen closet for many, many years.
Nap is woven with the finest 40's single-strand yarn available. The Italians call this weave a "quattro-quaranta" or "4-by-40". This means it uses 40's yarn in both the warp and the weft and has a density of 40 threads per centimeter in the warp as well as 40 picks per centimeter in the weft. The result is a fabric with a sturdy, balanced weave. Nap will last for a very long time making it ideal for not only hotels, but for any bedroom.
Wash should be separated into light & dark colors. Do not overload machine as this will damage long cotton fibers. We recommend a lukewarm wash cycle with a gentle detergent & a cool rinse.
Bleach may be used on white cotton bed linens only. Avoid using products that contain whitening agents such as chlorine bleach, alpha hydroxy acids and benzoyl peroxide on garment-dyed items. The reactive dyes used for garment-dyeing are not resistant to these whitening agents.

Tumble dry with low heat. Remove bed linens promptly from the machine to reduce wrinkling. For best results, line dry.
We at MATTEO tend to prefer a lived-in look, as such, you don't find us ironing our sheets too frequently. If you prefer a crisp looking bed, our cotton bed linens should be pressed while slightly damp using the Lightweight Cotton or Medium setting.
