Washed Sateen is a classic 4 over 1 sateen weave using a mid-weight 60's single cotton yarn in both the warp and weft. The result is a beautiful 300 thread count fabric. This sateen construction provides both silkiness and stability so that your sheets will wash and wear wonderfully for years. Washed Sateen is a great basic sheet for any room in your home and has the proper weight and weave density to achieve both softness and breathability.
We offer our Washed Sateen fabric by the yard so that you may use it to make your own custom pieces. All of our fabrics are double wide; 100" - 130" wide on the roll depending on the fabric. After washing, the width of our Washed Sateen fabric is 115"; a one yard piece is 115"W x 36"L.
Due to garment-dyeing limitations, the longest contiuous piece of fabric we are able to dye is 3 yards or 108" long. The longest possible piece of Washed Sateen fabric is 115" W x 108" L.
You may order as many yards as you need. If you are ordering more than 3 yards of fabric, please specify on your order, how long you would like each piece to be.
Wash should be separated into light & dark colors. Do not overload machine as this will damage long cotton fibers. We recommend a lukewarm wash cycle with a gentle detergent & a cool rinse.
Bleach may be used on white cotton bed linens only. Avoid using products that contain whitening agents such as chlorine bleach, alpha hydroxy acids and benzoyl peroxide on garment-dyed items. The reactive dyes used for garment-dyeing are not resistant to these whitening agents.
Tumble dry with low heat. Remove bed linens promptly from the machine to reduce wrinkling. For best results, line dry.
We at MATTEO tend to prefer a lived-in look, as such, you don't find us ironing our sheets too frequently. If you prefer a crisp looking bed, our cotton bed linens should be pressed while slightly damp using the Lightweight Cotton or Medium setting.
