Need advice. I'm trying to decide between sateen and percale sheets. Does it matter? Sateen seem to be touted as the "quality + comfort sheet" whereas percale seems to be the "cool + crisp". Is one of them generally regarded higher than another? We have a percale duvet cover which is nice and keeps me cool at night (I sweat and prefer a cooler sleep) but given the cost of the nicer sheets, I don't want to make the wrong decision. Do any of them clean better than others? Would one or the other retain stains (blood, spills) more than another? We have silk pillowcases and the blood came right out in the wash. Would either weave last longer than another? At the moment, I'm looking at the Sferra Giza 45 sheets. The sateen is more expensive, but in either case I'm looking at $1500+ so I don't want to make the wrong. Thanks.
