Sex and Satin Sheets


One of the most luxurious fabrics that can be used for your bed covers is satin and contrary to what many people think, satin is really not a specific fabric, but rather a specific type of fabric weave.  It is a weave that results in a glossy, smooth fabric that feels cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

If the fabric is formed with the special satin weave using long filament fibers such as nylon, polyester or silk, it is called satin, although purists might insist that the fabric be made from silk.  On the other hand, if the yarns used are short staple yarns such as cotton, the fabric is a considered a sateen.  Sateens are cheaper but have almost the same feel and wear qualities as satins.

Satin sheets are very soft and silky, come in many different colors and most people think they are very comfortable.

Satin sheets generally are manufactured in solid colors such as ivory, black, mauve, white and sky blue.

Because satin sheets are so smooth, they could be called slippery and therefore your bedding should be fitted to the specific size bed you are using them on.  If not fitted, sheets will likely “untuck” around the edges and become loose.  Fitted satin sheets from Comfort House are available in all popular bed sizes such as twin (39"x76"), twin XL (39"x80"), full (54"x76"), queen (60"x80"), king (78"x80"), and California king (72"x84"). 

Because satin sheets are so smooth and “slippery” they can tend to hinder organized physical activity.  However, this same slip and slide tendency makes them ideal for seniors who might otherwise have difficulty getting into and out of bed.

Many retail stores and webstores sell knit, acetate, or bridal satin sheets.  However, the real thing is only available at select fine linen boutiques and on-line from Comfort House whose sheets are easy care for, machine washable, require no ironing, and are colorfast. Stubborn stains and odors wash out every time.

Comfort House satin sheets are custom-made to order in USA and require  8 to 10 weeks for production.
