I got mine from amazon for about 15 but I've also seen them in john lewis for about 20 Sounds like a lot for a pillowcase but it's totally made a difference... I'd guess ebay might be cheaper? Good luck!
3b or c? Very fine hair but lots of it!

Newly CG (ish) and loving it so far, currently using Original Source to Co-wash, Australian Organics to condition, Trevor Sorbie curl cream and shockwaves gel. Weekly sulphate free shampoo.

Is it worth spending more money to get hold of not-polyester satin pillowcase or does it not really make a difference?

I ordered silk fabric from cheapfabrics.co.uk in order to make my own silk pillow cases. Are they really worth using or not

Yes, it makes a difference whether you use polyester or silk.

Silk breathes. It's warm in cold weather, and cool in hot weather. It doesn't pull on, or leach moisture out of your hair and skin.

Polyester can be hot and cause you to sweat. It can be overly slippery.
