We know, all of us, that silk bedding is very expensive. However, most of us don’t know how to distinguish silk from other fabric like satin and sateen.
|Satin||Often shiny on one side and matte on the back||Woven from several materials, like silk, nylon and polyester||Both satin and sateen are artificial and not as durable as silk|
|Sateen||Commonly combined with cotton|
|Silk||A shimmering appearance on both sides of the sheet||A natural product and is made from silk worms.|| |
After seeing the above chart, I guess you will not get confused when shopping for lustrous sheets, silk, satin and sateen.
