Now, more and more girls like satin sheets that are sleek and soft. And, many single guys like placing satin sheets on their beds.
Satin sheets are smooth and shiny, thus they are very popular. Satin sheets are made of very thin, high thread count fabric like nylon, polyester and acetate. These synthetic fibers are perfect for high thread count fabrics, but are in an entirely different realm than high thread-count cotton. And, the shininess also comes from the synthetic fibers. Satin sheets, made of high thread-count cotton fabric, lack the “shininess” of satin sheets.
Never buy “knit” materials, for their surfaces are going to rougher than you are looking for. However, in department stores, you will find most of the discount satin sheets are made of knit acetate. Looking for “woven” fabric is the only method to get high thread count, smooth, silky action from your satin sheets. But, “woven” fabric is more expensive than “knit” satin sheets.
