What is a satin weave?
This is a bit of a technical story. In a satin weave, the cotton is woven tighter than it is with cotton percale or cotton renforcé. So, many more threads are used. The 'thread count' indicates the number of threads per square inch. The higher the thread count, the higher the quality and the smoother the fabric will be. In the satin weave, the upper weft threads are loose, which gives the fabric its gorgeous shine. Cotton satin not only looks luxurious, but it feels like luxury too!
