Default Another Wal-mart find!

For some reason I keep forgetting to post this, but about a week or so ago I bought a satin pillowcase at WM for just $3.94! It does have a zipper, but it's over on the side, so it's not in the middle. Also, they come in these little clear plastic purse-like containers and they must be aimed at a very young crowd because they come in all sorts of crazy prints. I lucked out and found one that was solid print, hot pink on one side, purple on the other. But the rest of them were all kinds of pring, from tiger to flower, crazy shapes, etc., and they were reversible with a different print. Anyway, I've been loving mine so far, and it's nice and thickish, so not flimsy. Great price too!

oh yay flower pillowcases!
I"m tempted to try satin again. I had to go back to cotton because my chi that sleeps above my head on my pillow kept sliding on top of my head at night

I tried to find these pillow cases or any cases for that matter. I did find some 'sateen' cases. Does anyone know the difference between sateen and satin??

Default Love those satin pillow cases

Thanks for reminding me to put a satin pillow case on my pillow when I change my bed. It really does make a difference for my hair!

Sateen is not the same as satin. Satin is definitely what you want, it's much smoother and silkier. You can probably find one at Sally's, or a any home/bedding store, or else at Curlmart.

I found one at Wal-Mart. The pillow case was called Miss Behavin' or something like that.

It was polyester. I guess real satin is NOT polyester, right?

Sorry guys, I didn't see the last two replies before! Well, I should have told you that they were at the END of one of the aisles that carry sheets,etc. So they weren't on the actually shelves with the rest of them. Since they come in their own little purse/bag, they were actually hanging up on hooks at the end of the aisle.

Were they at the end of the Juvenile bedding section? I swear I was just in Wal-mart looking at sheets and didn't see anything like that. If they were in the juvi section though, I wouldn't have seen them because I don't look there. I will have to look closer - $3.94 is a good price if they're of good quality. Every satin pillowcase I've bought at Sally's has pulled. :x I think it's because they shrink in the dryer and don't fit the pillows anyhmore, so they stretch and pull.

Thanks for the recommendation - I'm ready to try something new.

i will have to look again. i also looked at JC Penny, but no satin pillowcases. i remember once upon a time when the JC Penny catalog had lots of satin/silk sheets...perhaps i am dating myself...

it seems as if JC Penny doesn't sell satin/silk sheets anymore.

Ok, I dug out the container that the pillowcase came in last night and I hadn't even realized it but it's the same one that Brio referred to in an earlier post. It's called Miss Behavin' and it says SATIN on the front, but then it says 100% polyester. I never would have known it was polyester because it feels very soft and smooth, really nice actually. So I'm not sure how they can call it satin if it's 100% polyester?

Shoot I had no idea satin wasn't polyester. I thought it was. That's why I'm holding out to replace my now ruined silk pillowcases with the real stuff (dog barf, it wasn't pretty)
On second thought maybe I should just get a silk head wrap huH?

Well I am no satin expert, so for all I know maybe it is polyester, but if that's the case why call it something different??

As far as my (granted, somewhat limited) fabric knowledge goes, satin is a weave-many threads over the top of the warp thread, which is why it snags so easily. It's typically made from polyester/rayon/silk, anything with a bit of a sheen since it shows it off so well. (Also why it's so prone to snagging and looking ratty.)

I've only seen silk satin once-in a wedding gown fabric shop. It's lovely.

Pricey, but lovely.

I'm not suggesting that's what it's made of I just see a lot of polyester called satin. The definition I found is it's made of rayon or silk and it's glossy on one side.
I see the word used for just the glossy on one side type of cloth though.

ETA: oops looks like I was posting at the same time. Honestly I didn't feel the need to repeat what was already said well
