I was introduced to silk many years ago when after a conversation with a girlfriend about my hot flushes dilemma, she said she’d used a silk pillowcase and it had really helped.
My quest for the best silk was launched!
For 12 months I spent time researching what silk was all about, where its sourced, how its made, its benefits and who were the best people to put this vision together.
100% A Grade, Long Strand 22 momme Mulberry Silk is the very best silk you can get. Momme, is the gauge by which silk is measured. Silk cannot be measured the same as cotton, by thread count because the thread is so fine it has to be woven very finely and then the weight per metre determines the momme. The best weight for silk pillowcases is 22, 19 would be too fine and would wear through quite quickly, anything above 22 is more like curtain material, so you don’t get the fine look.
Don’t be fooled into thinking because its so luxuriously gorgeous that is not durable. I have two small children that use my silk pillows as items to play rather rough pillow fights with on a very regular basis and they stand up to the job perfectly. For laundering, I just throw them in with my other bedding on 30-degree wash, tumble dry them and then put them straight back onto the pillows, totally no fuss required.
As for those pesky hot flushes…silk, unlike any other fabric, has the unique properties that allow it to absorb moisture without getting damp (the most uncomfortable side effect of having hot flushes is wet bedding!). Silk can absorb the heat from your head and still remain dry, providing you with the feeling of coolness. However, its so fabulously clever because during cold weather silk demonstrates its capacity to keep warm air close to the skin as a result of its low conductivity. Its WIN/WIN all round!
