Why Choose Satin Sheets?

Charmeuse Satin, often referred to as Lingerie Satin, is virtually indistinguishable from silk. It has the same sumptuous smooth feel against the skin and luxurious appearance as silk, and also delivers a unique tactile experience of softness and coolness combined. The liquid coolness on the skin make satin sheets the perfect bed cover for warmer weather or those who tend to get warm while they sleep.

Silky Facts

Silk is produced from jelly substances secreted by silkworms. The secretion hardens as soon upon exposure to air, forming what is known as a filament. The hardened filament is tightly held together by sericin, a silk gum. The silkworm spins layers of the single filament and a cocoon is formed. Each cocoon is composed of a single thread, measuring approximately 914 meters (3,000 feet). A series of hot and cold water immersions soften the silk gum and loosen the filament, leaving it ready to be reeled and spun into a silk thread. In instances where the silk is used as a filling, softened filaments are manually stretched and layered to form the comforter batting.
