- Care Details
We offer our Tru fabric by the yard so that you may use it to make your own custom pieces. All of our fabrics are double wide; 100" - 130" wide on the roll depending on the fabric. After washing, the width of our Tru fabric is 115"; a one yard piece is 115"W x 36"L.
Due to garment-dyeing limitations, the longest continuous piece of fabric we are able to dye is 3 yards or 108" long. The longest possible piece of Tru fabric is 115" W x 108" L.
You may order as many yards as you need. If you are ordering more than 3 yards of fabric, please specify on your order, how long you would like each piece to be.

- Percale Weave
- 400 Thread count
When thread count became all the rage, we were disappointed with some of the gimmicks that were being used to declare absurdly high thread counts. Especially in percale fabrics. Thread count is simply a measurement of how many threads are in one square inch of fabric. A percale is a plain weave (or 1-over-1 structure) it is very challenging to weave a percale in very high thread counts; you can only pack so many threads into one square inch!
We love percale, so we decided to make the highest thread count percale possible using a very thin 100 singles cotton yarn. This is why we called it Tru(e). It is indeed a true 400 thread count percale with a light soft crispness that makes for a wonderful sleep.
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.
