My Experience with the Emma Sheet Set
The Emma sheet set is made using only cotton percale, which is a fabric used to produce the highest quality bedding. It is a very fine cotton, not only for the value of the raw material, but also for the so-called plain weave treatment.
This means that the weft and warp are worked in a 1 to 1 ratio, using rather fine yarns and crossing them perpendicularly with extreme precision. The result is a tightly woven fabric that is soft, lightweight but at the same time very durable.
The supply includes, in addition to the two upper and lower sheets, the duvet cover and a pair of pillowcases. The advantages of resting wrapped in these sheets are the pleasant softness in contact with the skin and the feeling of freshness.
In this regard, we can use bed linen in any season, including warmer periods thanks to its lightness and great breathability. All without forgetting that it is a machine washable set at 40°C and produced in compliance with the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 standard.
This last aspect is very important because it represents a certificate issued by an independent body only to products that pass strict tests, aimed at verifying the absence of substances harmful to health. Therefore, the Emma bedding set can also be used for the rest of small children or people allergic to chemical compounds.

Pair of pillowcases
My final judgment on the Emma sheet set is positive although I expected a little more regarding the weft density of the yarn. In my opinion, for maximum comfort, the weave should have a density of at least 300 thread count per inch, compared to the 200 in this set.
For the rest, nothing to say, the cotton is well finished and resistant. The soft finish process makes the sheets softer from the third wash. Contrary to the 40 degrees prescribed on the label, I washed the sheets at 60 degrees without finding any problems. In the end, given the general characteristics of these yarns, their value for money is in my opinion good and I recommend them for purchase.
