Some buyers may be confused by the fact that the material content on the SATIN bedding being sold on Ebay does not say 100% SATIN. Hopefully the following will help to explain why.
I like a few other sellers on Ebay sell SATIN bedding. Predominantly, these are six piece sets which contain a duvet cover, 4 pillowcases and a fitted sheet. Mostly, they're available in double, king-size and super king size and the main colours are red, black, blue, cream and chocolate. There are some more exotic versions such as tiger and leopard prints available.
There is a commonly help misconception that SATIN is a material in the same way as silk or cotton is a natural material. SATIN is actually a description of a weaving technique rather than a material and can be woven from a number of materials - silk, polyester or nylon are the most common. So if you buy a set please don't be alarmed when the material is described on the back of the packing as 100% polyester.
SATIN is a cloth that has a smooth, glossy finish. A satin-woven fabric tends to have a high luster due to the high number of "floats" on the fabric. Floats are "missed" interlacings, where, the warp yarn lays on top of the weft yarn, or vice versa. The floats tend to make the fabric look glossier as well as give it a smoother finish in most cases.
SATIN bedding may sound like an expensive luxury but it is a lot less expensive than many people think. Please feel free to have a look in my shop to see the full range on offer at very competitive prices.
