Satin is a weave that typically has a glossy surface and a dull back.
The satin weave is characterized by four or more cool fill or weft
yarns floating over a warp yarn or vice versa, four warp yarns
floating over a single weft yarn. Floats are missed interfacings,
where the warp yarn lies on top of the weft in a warp-faced satin
and where the weft yarn lies on top of the warp yarns in weft-faced
satins. These floats explain the even sheen, as unlike in other
weaves, the light reflecting is not scattered as much by the
fibres, which have fewer tucks. Satin is usually a warp-faced
weaving technique in which warp yarns are "floated" over weft
yarns, although there are also weft-faced satins.
A satin fabric tends to have a high luster due to the high number
of floats on the fabric. Because of this it is used in making bed
sheets. Many variations can be made of the basic satin weave
including a granite weave and a check weave. Satin weaves, twill
weaves, and plain weaves are the three basic types of weaving by
which the majority of woven products are formed.
Satin is commonly used in apparel: satin baseball jackets, athletic
shorts, women's lingerie, nightgowns, blouses, and evening gowns,
but also in some men's boxer shorts, briefs, shirts and neckties.
It is also used in the production of pointe shoes for use in
ballet. Other uses include interior furnishing fabrics, upholstery,
and bed sheets.
