I love Sateen Sheets! And I prefer any Sateen Bed Linens over Satin everyday. Sateen sheets from long staple cotton with a thread count above 400 are luxuriously soft and yet, they are the most economical. Sateen Linens are easy to care for, and durable wear.
As an example,
I puchased Ralph Lauren’s Isadora Cossette Bed Set more than 13 years ago. It’s as stunning today as it was then–
*** Honestly, my bedroom set is as pretty today as when I purchased the set all those years ago. The Sateen Sheen is gone, but the
cotton is soft and there is very little fading. You could only guess it’s age if sitting side by side a brand new Cossette Floral Bed Set right out of the package.
Every other month the comforter is laundered at a local laundromat with Super-size Washers and Dryers. Washed with cool water and a gentle detergent, it’s dried gently as well. I usually remove the comforter before it’s totally dry and spread it out on the bed to finish air drying. That helps to prevent any shrinkage from a too hot dryer and leaves it as fluffy as when brand new.
I must admit, my comforter is stored during our long hot Summers and replaced by a light weight thermal blanket. Then, I don’t need a comforter at all. In a sunshiny state like ours, a heavy comforter on a summer’s night would be smothering.
My point is: Sateen sheets are super durable and wear well for many years.
They are easily laundered at any local laundromat with Super-Size Washers and Dryers and a gentle laundry detergent.
Watch for the name of the designer you prefer, whether it be Martha Stewart, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Barbara Barry, or Vera Wang. Find the set you like, then check the fabric content and the thread count.
Remember: for the softest sheet Long Staple Cotton, 400+ Thread Count
