Know Your Bedding Material ~ Sateen


Your bedding makes a big difference in the quality of your sleep, and sheets make a big difference in the quality of your bedding. While Cotton is still king in the world of sheets, that doesn't mean there aren't other options. We’ve covered Silk, Polyester and Poly-CottonBlends. Today is all about Sateen.


Sateen is usually a cotton fabric that has a soft feel. Like percale, sateen does not refer to the material of the sheet. It refers to the method in which the sheet was woven. The weave is what gives the sateen sheet its soft, luxurious feel. The material is lustrious and smooth to the touch. Only carded or combed yarns are used. The best quality sateen is mercerized to give it a higher sheen.
Pros: Sateen offers the luxurious feel and soft texture of satin. Durable, long lasting and machine washable.

Cons: Slippery, especially when wearing satin or silk pjs. Also slightly irritable; the material highly resembles silk and can cause a person to sweat.

Know Your Bedding Material ~ PolyCotton Blend

Pros: A polyester-cotton blend can be versatile, retaining the coolness and lightness of the cotton fibre, but also adding the strength, durability and wrinkle-resistance of polyester. This 50-50 Poly-Cotton blend is often preferred by most bedding companies as it only shrinks slightly in comparison to 100% cotton, and is extremely easy to sew.

Cons: The blend does not “breathe” or stay as cool as the pure cotton.

Know Your Bedding Material ~ Polyester



Polyester is a man-made and natural fibre produced from polymers. Polyester is a strong fibre that keeps its shape and resists wrinkling. Sheets made from this material are often found in homes and hotels where durability, not necessarily comfort, is a major concern.

Know Your Bedding Material ~ Silk



Silk is luxurious, soft fibre produced from silk worms. The three main varieties are the Wild Silk {harvested from wild silk worms}, the Tussah Silk from the east {with a deep tone to it} and the 100% Mulberry Silk {which is the "Rolls Royce" of silks}. They create a silky, cool alternative for warm days and romantic nights. Because it is naturally hypo-allergenic, it is an alternative for people who suffer from allergies.
