I agree silk is beautiful. You had some great information on silk. I think satin is just as good IF you buy the better quality. I don't think that a $5.99 set from Target is going to do anything. I've always felt that you get what you pay for. I purchased two sets last year from www.atouchofsatin.com They were relatively expensive but they are beautiful and they've held up to constant washings and my hair and skin haven't looked or felt this good in fifteen years. My hair isn't all dried out and I don't have split-ends like I use to. I also don't wake up with those pillow creases anymore. They also had a selection unlike anything I've seen anywhere else. There was some great info on their website about the benefits of satin. You might want to take a look for yourself.

Great topic!
