What is cotton satin fabric
Cotton satin is a satin weave of cotton. The term satin does not say anything about the material (which is just cotton), but it is a weaving technique. In this weaving technique, the cotton is woven much closer together than in other cotton weaves.
Properties of cotton satin
Cotton satin is usually made of 100% cotton and has all the same characteristics that cotton has. And many more!
Satin cotton is breathable and absorbent, just like regular cotton. However, satin cotton feels a lot smoother than regular cotton. This is due to the satin weave. In addition, cotton sateen has a subtle sheen and feels soft to the touch. The ideal fabric to sleep under!
Difference between cotton satin and satin
By the way, the name "satin" can sometimes confuse people. They think of the shiny polyester satin. The weave of this is the same as cotton satin, but it is definitely a different fabric. In addition, cotton satin shines much more subtly than polyester satin. Another advantage of cotton satin is that it feels more luxurious and fine on the skin.
