Cotton satin - the best of both worlds

How about trying our soft cotton fabric in a range of beautiful colours for your next creative project. It's soft and comfortable to work with.

Satin refers to the way the fabric is woven. This means that when we say cotton satin, it has the same beautiful weave as more 'classic' satin, while the cotton quality gives a more matt finish to the fabric. 


And what can you use cotton satin for? 

Well, that’s entirely up to you. We prefer using it for bed linen. The natural material of the cotton in the delicate satin weave makes for some really lovely home made bed linen.


As with so many other cottons, it is also suitable for clothing. Cotton is comfortable to wear and the fine weave gives it a nice finish - for a summer shirt or skirt, for example.


Cotton satin is also perfect for a tablecloth for the table. Sew the tablecloth yourself or select "Sew as a tablecloth" and we will sew it for you (click on the text for details).


Practical information about cotton satin

Made from 100% cotton, it's soft and fluffy and, as always, you buy the fabric by the metre, so you get exactly the length you need.


You can wash it at 60° and iron at medium heat - but avoid the tumble dryer; let it air dry instead.


TIP: Finish your seams properly - satin tends to fray a lot. You could also consider using a wider seam allowance to secure your seams or use overlock stitching. As always - test your seams on a scrap piece beforehand to see which technique works best for your piece of fabric. Search "9 tips for sewing satin" for more tips.


What is satin? 

Satin refers to the way the fabric is woven, where one side of the material is smooth and shiny. For this satin we recommend that you use a size 70 universal needle.
