Satin Pillow Cases

If you are looking for Satin pillowcases you have come to the right place for information. The first thing you need to know is that the tem “Satin” doesn’t mean a fabric.  It is actually the term for a weave.

Satin Weave

The satin weave is made with four or more  weft yarns floating over a warp yarn or vice versa. This explains the even shine typical of satin, as unlike in other weaves, the light hitting the fabric is reflected making it shiny.

Satin when applied to a fabric usually means Pure Silk or Polyester Satin. If you buy Satin Pillowcases of  good quality Poly Satin you will get a lovely silky pillowcase which will be soft and sensual to the touch. Polyester Satin pillowcases are easy care and can be machined washed at 40C.

Pure Silk Satin

For a real touch of Luxury choose Pure Silk Satin Pillowcases. They are beautiful to sleep on and are a real beauty aid – preventing the formation of wrinkles and stopping that ‘bedhead’ look first thiing in the morning.

Satin Pillow cases for Beautiful Hair

The special weave of the satin makes the fabric soft and your skin and hair just glide over the surface when you move. Cotton and similar fabrics by comparison catch and snag your delicate skin and pull at your  hair causing it to frizz.

Bed Sizes

Many people do not know what size bed they have. This means when they buy bed linen they find that the sheets simply do not fit. Too small so they are always pinging off during the night  or too large so they ruck up uncomfortably while you sleep.

At  Between the Sheets we are regularly asked about bed sizes. There are very many different sizes being sold all over the world so you are just as likely to find that your new bed isn’t one that is standard in your country.
This can be a problem when looking for bed linen as many stores only stock the common local sizes.
