We recommend you to look at the detailed review and observations on each sheet in the next section.
MOLECULE Percale Sheets Review
The percale sheets are generally known to be crisp and soft. The OnMOLECULE percale sheets are nice and give a silky feel to touch. The sheet has a matte finish due to its plain-weave of threads. It is an elegant 1 over, 1 under weave.
The combination of plain-weave and TENCEL™ Lyocell makes it lightweight and airy. This is a perfect sheet for summers especially if you sleep hot.
The molecule percale is a blend of TENCEL™ Lyocell ( 48%) and cotton (52%). The thread count of the sheet is 300.
The Tencel has a special property of absorbing moisture and keeping the sheet dry and fresh. The TENCEL™ Lyocell fiber is derived from Eucalyptus and other trees' wood pulp.
As the moisture gets absorbed and does not allow any moisture on the surface. This discourages the growth of bacteria.
The MOLECULE Percale is sold in a set that contains one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and two envelope pillowcases. The individual sheets are not sold separately but standalone pillowcases are available to buy.
The Percale is available only in a standard deep pocket of up to 13 inches.
Observation: This is your ideal sheet for summers for all types of sleepers. In our experience, we found it on the soothing side. Our expectation was more from Molecule Percale but it would not stop us from recommending to our readers. We should also understand that the individual experience of factor like airy and comfort in summers do vary from person to person. But it stands out when compared to some other traditional cotton sheets.
MOLECULE Sateen Sheets Review
The MOLECULE Sateen performance sheets are equipped with Air-Engineered™. The Air-Engineered™ is a proprietary technology by MOLECULE. It is used in all their products including both the bed sheets Percale and Sateen.
The Sateen sheet is thicker and has a silky satin-like feel due to its weave structure. It is four over, one under sateen weave. Like Percale, the MOLECULE Sateen is a combination of TENCEL™ Lyocell ( 48%) and cotton (52%) with a thread count of 300.
The Sateen is very similar to its properties to Percale. It also has temperature regulating and resistance for bacterial growth. The Sateen is an all-season sheet that can be used throughout the year.
The MOLECULE is again sold in a set with 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, and 2 envelope pillowcases. Unlike Percale, the Sateen is available in both standard (up to 13 inches) and extra deep pocket depth ( 14-17 inches).
The extra-deep sheets are available in white and ivory in queen and upward sizes.
We reviewed Sateen after Percale and it is difficult to say which one we liked the better. Both the sheet are perfect.
The Sateen has a satin silky feel which gives you a personal feel as you touch. Honestly, the feel is inviting and you can judge it as you start making the bed. Sateen has an inherent luxurious touch.
Even if you are an ardent fan of pure cotton sheets, you will switch sides. Largely thanks for the Tencel blend. We did notice the little striking sound when the sheets got rubbed with each other. The sound is negligible for us but it might be noticeable to few who have not used silky sheets.

How to wash MOLECULE sheets?
MOLECULE sheets are machine washable. It is recommended that sheets are washed separately to prolong the life of sheets. Use the gentle cycle in cold water while washing and tumble dry on low heat.
Tencel™ does help in wrinkle-free sheets. It is recommended sheets should not over-dry. Just remove them from the dryer and fold them smoothly.
