Satinet is a finely woven fabric with a finish resembling satin, but made partly or wholly from cotton or synthetic fiber.[1] The process developed in Mesopotamia around 5000BC.[1] The fibers may be natural (as with cotton, woolens or cashmere wool) or synthetic.[1]

The process of manufacturing satinets in the U.S. began c. 1820 at the Capron Mill in Uxbridge, Massachusetts.[2]

The Hockanum Mill in Rockville / Vernon CT was originally constructed in 1814 by Bingham & Nash. They became a leading manufacturer of satinet. The Hockum Mills in Connecticut was formed in 1836 and constructed a larger mill to produce satinet, a finely woven fabric that resembles satin but is made from wool. They continued to produce satinet until 1869.
