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.
Washed Sateen pillowcases are finished with a 3" cuff hem.
Pillowcases and Shams are both used to protect pillow inserts, but there are a wide variety of constructions. Typically, pillowcases loosely encase the pillow and are open on the side, whereas shams are more fitted and employ some method of closure to keep the pillow in place.
We recommend using a Queen pillowcase for a Standard pillow insert as we do not offer a Standard pillowcase. The pillowcase will hang a bit longer over the edge of the insert. It can be tucked in to create an envelope closure or taken to a seamstress for a simple alteration.

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 whiteneing 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.
