John Lewis Silk Standard Pillowcase
not great quality
I've bought 2 sets of these pillowcases. The first set were bought quite some time ago and they're still in lovely condition. However, the second set started to split and now look too unsightly to use. I'm very disappointed that I'll have to replace these so soon and trying to decide whether to buy another brand this time instead. These aren't up to John Lewis usual standards.

Nice but didn't last long enough
These pillowcases are really soft and feel lovely to sleep on. My hair is in great condition since using these and the pearl grey colour looks lovely in my bedroom (difficult to find grey in silk).
The drawback - as another reviewer has stated - is that these don't last. I bought two pillowcases about a year ago and have used them consistently (though not religiously) since - I also travel a lot for work so haven't had a full year of use. In the last few weeks my pillowcases have also started to split along the cuff on the reverse of the case - the material has just come apart! Both have had the same problem appear within a couple of weeks.
I am disappointed that the quality of a John lewis product is not higher - I would have expected pillowcases at this price to last at least a couple of years - not less than one.

Didn't last 5 minutes
On the advice of my hairdresser, to stop frizz, I bought a pair of these pillow cases and have used each one on alternate weeks since the end of February. Last week I noticed the one I was using had a small tear in it along the seam on the edge of the band. Oh, I thought, I'll have to manage with one. The following week I washed the other, on a delicate setting with the rest of my undies as usual, only to find this one had a huge tear along the same edge. After a total of approx half a dozen washes (I was on holiday for 2 weeks) I am very disappointed in the quality of this product and would have expected them to last longer then this.

Perfect for chemo patients
I recently bought a pair for my boyfriend's mother who is undergoing chemo. I read online that silk pillowcases prevent hair pulling and delay, if not prevent, the hair coming out in chemo patients. She has told me that while her hair does come out in the shower, she has not woken up to a single hair on her silk pillowcase in the few weeks that she has been using it.
Thank you for a luxurious and quality product. Will save up for the sheet!

I had this pillowcase as a Christmas present and can't think why I had never asked for one before. It is blissful to sleep on, now my husband wants one.

This is so comfortable to sleep on & survives washing well. The only drawback is that the pillow tends to slide about.

So lovely to rest your face on
This silk pillowcase feels wonderful, well worth the money. It washes well in machine at 40 degrees.
