Sheraton 300TC 100% Cotton Sateen Flat Sheet • 100% Cotton • 300 Thread Count • Cotton Sateen Flat Sheet
Sateen is a smooth durable lustrous fabric usually made of cotton in satin weave. Sateen produces the sheen and softer feel through the use of a different structure in the weaving process. The sateen weaving structure places most threads on the surface, making it extremely soft and durable. Warp yarns are floated over weft yarns, for example four over and one under. Standard plain weaves use a one-over, one-under structure. The long floats produce a smooth surface to the touch. Also they don’t scatter light which increases shine.
Why use both a fitted and flat sheet?
Flat sheets are a choice among some people while others prefer to forego them altogether. There is really no right or wrong answer. So here are some bedding facts that will help decide if flat sheet is right for you.
Benefits of using a flat sheet
• A flat sheet is much easier to wash than a duvet cover. Flat sheets are meant to keep your duvet and heavy blankets from getting dirty since those items are bigger and may be harder or more expensive to clean.
• Your duvet cover will stay cleaner for longer periods of time. Instead of having to washing your duvet cover, you can simply throw your flat sheet in the wash.
• Flat sheets can also be tucked around your mattress and be used as a fitted sheet. This is especially helpful if you have a thick mattress and can’t find a fitted sheet to cover it.
• Flat sheets help with temperature control. It can be nice to use your sheets under light blankets in the spring and summer, so you can easily adjust to your desired temperature without hopping out of bed.
