Egyptian Cotton: Egyptian cotton is used to make some of the highest quality linens in the world, including sumptuously soft bath and bed linens. Egyptian cotton is grown to produce a longer staple, or fiber, than generic cotton, and the longer and finer a cotton staple is, the better able it is to be spun into finer count yarns, which in turn can be knitted or woven into soft, fine, and luxurious fabrics. The staple length in Egyptian cotton averages 1-1/8 to 1-1/2 inches, but can reach over 2-1/4 inches, which is twice the size of a generic cotton fiber. Products which highlight construction of Egyptian cotton are usually referring to the extra-long-staple cotton produced largely in the Nile River Valley. The humidity and rich soil around the Nile delta produce especially long cotton fibers, which are fine and vary from a light cream to dark tan color. Egyptian cotton is strong, durable, and if cared for properly, will be long lasting.
Sateen: Sateen fabric has a soft, satin-like finish resulting from a four-over-one thread weave. Standard weaves, like percale, use a one-over, one-under stitch. The four-over weave puts more threads nearer the surface, resulting in a softer, warmer surface. Sateen fabrics are most often made of mercerized cotton, but can be made of other fabrics, including cotton blends, polyester, and rayon. Mercerized threads give sateen fabrics a higher luster. Mercerization, named for process-creator John Mercer, involves treating threads with a cold concentrated sodium hydroxide solution. Mercerization also increases strength, dyeability, and resistance to mildew, as well as reduces lint. Sateens can be produced in light and heavy weights, and are ideal for bedding.

1) They're clearly high quality.
2) They're nice and thick.
1) The eggshell color has a slight green tinge to it. It's barely perceptible, but I notice it against all of my other stuff that's off-white.
2) Perhaps because they're high thread-count, they have a slippery feel to them that I don't like. If I sweat at all at night, they feel almost sticky.
3) They wrinkle like crazy, even if I put them on my pillows right out of the dryer.
I'll repeat: Night and Day.
I am HAPPILY SURPRISED with the Pinzon. There were mixed reviews, and I figured that these would be good, not great, (and the cheaper pair would be okay, not great).
But these SO FAR are superb. I've taken some photos. The fabric is heavy (as opposed to paper-thin cotton, that wrinkles and crinkles), and has a satiny sateeny finish. Rubbing my hand along the pillowcase felt smooth and soft, smoother than the cheap $9.99 ones that was almost like muslin, maybe a little better.
The decorative stitching near the top of the case has an elegant look, I don't know the name of that kind of stitching. The seams are reinforced and look sturdy.
Again, I don't know how it will wash, but it's soft, really good quality, and definitely worth $16.99.
If you're considering, as I was, the $9.99 pair from Utopia, I'd suggest that you spring for the extra $7 - (how often do we buy pillowcases??) I'm returning the cheap cases. It's clearer to me, having them side by side, why it's worth $17 to have really good quality cases, rather than skimp for $10.
If the photos are uploaded in the order, the last photo is of the inexpensive case, and you can see the difference in the stitching and fabric.

These pillow cases are well-made and wash well. They are soft - but super, super soft. The material is not too thin and I think will wear well. I purchased them in white. Read morePublished 6 days ago by sageweim
