Sateen sheets offer the best features of both cotton and silk. Cotton fibers are woven in a silk-like pattern to produce the ultra-soft shiny material famous for being as durable as a traditional cotton sheet.
What’s the difference between satin and sateen? Satin is almost always made from 100% silk thread whereas sateen is generally made from 100% cotton. It is also machine washable, whereas satin usually needs to be dry-cleaned.
