About the Fabric
Regarded as the ultimate luxury in bed linens, cotton sateen is coveted for its silky smooth finish and its subtle sheen. Unlike other weaves, which have an equal number of threads running in both directions, sateens feature more vertical threads than horizontal. In other words, a sateen weave will have fewer intersections, and thus less friction, giving the fabric its sublimely soft feel.
Our Sei bedding by Matteo boasts an impressive 600 thread count and is as sumptuous as they come. Thread count simply refers to the number of threads woven together in a square inch. In theory, more threads should equal a finer yarn, but often times, that’s not actually the case. Manufacturers often inflate thread count by running additional parallel threads or by using multi-ply yarns, without actually improving the quality of the weave. But not to worry – that’s certainly not the case here. Matteo’s Sei collection is even more soft and supple than we make it sound.
