Satin what material is it?
Satin is a thick cotton fabric, durable, wear-resistant and very beautiful. Its softness and shine are often compared to silk, and its affordable price allows it to significantly expand its scope of application. Satin is often used for sewing bed linen, curtains, bedspreads and, of course, clothes. The material is not only beautiful and pleasant to the touch, but also has other valuable features: it does not shrink during washing, does not lose color brightness, does not cause irritation and allergies. Satin is a cotton fabric with a special thread weave. For this purpose, two threads are used: a denser one for the base and a thin twist - for the front side. There is one on the front for four weft threads.
Such a fabric has several characteristics, such as a glossy color, including the lightness and smoothness of the satin fabric, which, thanks to its high wear resistance, lasts a long time. Cotton satin is perfect for children's bedding, because it is well suited for frequent washing. The first noticeable changes in the structure and appearance of the fabric appear only after 250-300 washes.
