Traditionally, satin comes in two varieties. Most satin that you'll encounter in the bedding industry is made from polyester, and is a low grade fabric. Our satin waterbed sheets are not manufactured in polyester satin, but rather the higher quality Acetate satin.
Specifically, our satin is "Bridal" satin, which is the grade used in making bridal gowns. It is composed of a nylon acetate, and is a heavier, thicker, more luxurious satin than the polyester. It has two definite sides to it. The correct or "top" side is frictionless and bears a strong luster. The reverse side is somewhat dull, and bears the grain of the fabric.
This "Bridal" satin is only available to us in 45" wide bolts, and thus, all sheets made of "Bridal" satin must have a center seam. This center seam is reinforced, and generally does not cause a problem, but you should be aware that the sheets will come with it.
Made from the highest quality satin available, these waterbed sheets are very smooth, slick and silky. Bridal satin sheets are tightly woven, luxurious, and durable.
