If you’ve been seeking supremely comfortable sheets, look no further – luxuriously soft and lustrous sateen is bedding perfection.
Sateen, not Satin
Elegant, yet durable sateen fabric has a smooth and somewhat satiny finish, but it is not, in fact, satin. Cuddledown uses pure, 100% cotton, which is mercerized for luster. Our higher thread count sateen is woven using multiple picks (two or more yarns) with the most yarn exposed on the surface of the fabric to give it its characteristic silky, soft sheen. The additional yarn and higher ply, can give sateen a slightly heavier feel than some other woven cotton fabrics, but it results in a heavenly soft, buttery-smooth feel. And like our other Cuddledown bedding, our sateen bedding is Oeko-Tex® certified to be free of all harmful chemicals and safe for you and your family.
The Thread Count Difference
You can find high thread count sheets at the big box stores, but in addition to the thread count (which is simply the amount of threads per square inch), the actual yarn that’s used is even more important. At Cuddledown, the cotton we use is a higher quality, long-staple cotton, such as Egyptian or Pima, valued for its suppleness, smoothness, and glossiness, not to mention strength. The fine quality cotton plus higher thread count of our sateen bedding is what has transformed many customers into “bedding snobs” – once they feel the difference between our high thread count sheets and the others, they can never go back!
Add Color, Print and Texture
Our luxurious 400 thread count cotton sateen is one of our best-selling customer favorites, and it comes in a wide array of colors, from pale, elegant pastels to rich, vibrant hues. In addition to the solids, we also offer a fine hotel bedding collection, accented with double satin stitching, as well as woven textural patterns in stripes and jacquard. We also offer a variety of exclusive, designer prints from lush florals, to rich Jacobean scrolls to artwork from ancient tea ceremonies. Many of these exclusive bedding collections include quilted coverlets and shams to add variety and dimension to your bed.
