"Sateen" does not equal "satin", nor does it mean "shiny" (at least not as a rule). I have several sets of quality sateen sheets, and they aren't shiny. They're actually velvety, for lack of a better word. The one thing that I don't like about them is that if I have any rough skin on my feet, I know it because it feels like it almost snags the sheets. I absolutely don't need any more sheet sets, but with single-ply thread, Egyptian cotton, at 500 thread count, I'm having a hard time resisting these, both for myself and as gifts for family members who sleep on unacceptably yucky sheets, IMO.
