Blissfully soft and naturally breathable, Mulberry silk has benefits that go beyond the bedroom. With a feel that's luxurious and soothing to the touch. The silk has properties that are more than surface deep though. CREATED FOR REAL LIFE, it's naturally more moisture-repellent than other bedding fabrics, helping your skin stay hydrated and your night cream work that bit better!
The super-smooth finish helps maintain moisture levels in your hair, stopping it from becoming static and banishing 'bed-head' for fewer tangles in the morning. It's also helpful for those with sensitive skin as it’s naturally hypoallergenic.
It might sound counterintuitive but silk, as well as being supremely soft, is also extremely strong. Because individual silk threads have inherent strength (a single silk fibre is stronger than an equal thickness of steel) and bind easily together, it makes silk fabric very durable. What that means in a practical sense is that, with care, these pillowcases will last you just as long as those made from cotton or linen.
Our pillowcases are made from the highest quality 19-momme Mulberry silk. 'Momme' refers to the weight in lbs of a piece of silk 45 inches x 100 yards in size. Just in case it comes up at your next pub quiz.
