it is a sheet like a silk type of feeling to it
The Egyptian sheets and 100 percent cotton sateen have different weave types. Egyptian sheets are lighter and cooler, while cotton sateen are a bit heavier and cozier.
A type of sheets for bedding
Sateen sheets can be purchased at most department and retail stores at reasonable prices. Places such as Sears, Walmart and Target. One can also purchase reasonably priced sateen sheets online at such sites as eBay and Overstock.
No, in fact, if the iron is too hot it could break down or damage the sateen. You can iron if needed, but put the iron on a lower setting and place a pressing cloth between the iron and the sateen sheet.
Sateen, not to be confused with satin, is a type of fabric often found in bed sheets. Sateen is usually applied to cotton, or sometimes rayon. Better qualities are mercerized to give a higher sheen. Some are only calendered to produce the sheen but this disappears with washing and is not considered genuine sateen. Sateen may be bleached, dyed, or printed. It is difficult to make good bound buttonholes on it as it has the tendency to slip at the seams. Sateen produces the sheen and softer feel through the use of a different structure in the weaving process.The sateen structure is four over, one under, placing the most threads on the surface, making it extremely soft, though slightly less durable than other weaves. Standard, non-sateen, weaves use a one over, one under structure. Satin also uses this structure, however, instead of using cotton, different materials are used (e.g., silk, polyester, etc).
Jacquard is a type of weave usually with a pattern on it. Each yarn is a different color and are woven together creating a pattern. Yarn dyed sheets were dyed in the yarn stage not dyed as a whole sheet like cheaper sheets would be.
Yes, it does.
Well 98% is cotton and 2% is spandex sateen. Simple.
Damask sheeting and sateen sheeting are not necessarily mutually exclusive. They speak to different aspects of weaving yarn into sheets, and it is possible to achieve a damask sateen sheet. Damask refers to a pattern (typically a stripe, but other patterns can show up) where changes in the direction of the yarns being woven result in a directional change in the nap. It's like when you vacuum a rug - if you go back and forth over different sections of a short pile rug, the "back" stroke looks lighter (or darker) than the "forth" stroke. Just so, a damask weave results in a permanent alteration of the nap of the fabric, resulting in a pattern being "imprinted" on the sheet. "Sateen" is a type of weave, where there are two yarns going left-right for every yarn going up-down. A typical weave has one yarn going left-right and one going up-down. By doubling the number of yarns on one axis, you result in a smoother, silkier-feeling final product.
If you are talking about the cloth, there is no native Hebrew word for sateen. Israelis use the word ×¡×˜×Ÿ, pronounced either setten or SAH-ten.
