Area Bedding HEATHER Cement Standard Sham
The HEATHER sham is an AREA classic — cotton percale with a smooth, soft surface and long-lasting comfort. Our trademark heathered effect comes from interweaving yarn colors before spinning them. Then the cotton is ring spun — a traditional process, harkening back to the 1800s, of tightly twisting long and short threads together to create the strongest, smoothest, softest yarn possible.
Ring-spun fabric has a slightly heavier quality, providing extra comfort. Shams have a thin, elegant, quarter-inch mini-flange and are sold individually.

At Area, they like to keep things simple, including their care instructions, there are brief instructions on their packaging, but here are some more helpful hints:
All Area items can be machine washed except for wool blankets, Area linen quilts and printed linen pillows (see these product pages for dry cleaning information) Wash bedding before use in warm or cold water on the regular or gentle cycle. Use a mild detergent (many detergents contain chemicals that are harmful to fabrics) Use a non-chlorine bleach on whites, but only if necessary Tumble dry on low or medium heat and be careful not to over-dry, it makes fabric brittle and causes shrinking and wrinkling Iron while linens are still camp. If dry, dampen linens with a spray bottle Use a steam iron on warm (never a hot, dry iron) Iron embroidered pieces (any anything else you’re not sure about) on the back side *All Area linen and cotton/linen blends can be machine-washed with the same care as their cottons
