Everything You Need To Know About Silk Bedding
It seems like everyone’s always on the look out for the next miracle product to help you achieve flawless skin, flawless hair, banish wrinkles and blackheads, give you younger looking skin…the list goes on. It’s only quite recently that the phenomenon of sleeping on silk and using silk accessories has come to the forefront of the beauty industry and it really is just as amazing as what the experts say.
Diamond Bedding’s silk bedding and accessories range consists of pillowcases, sheets, covers or complete sets and eye masks - everything you could need to quite literally cover every inch of yourself in silk! But you may not know how to differentiate between different silks to make sure you’re investing in the best quality or know about the many benefits that silk holds, so we’ve put together this two-part guide to explain all.
The details to look for
First off, there are various types of silk depending on the weight, measured in momme - the greater the weight, the higher the momme and therefore you receive a better quality silk. Most products come in the 10-15 momme range but you really get what you pay for as silks with a lesser weight may be cheaper but they won’t last as long and you’ll have to replace them more often.
Next up you’ll want to make sure it’s made up of pure 100% silk i.e. not made up of other fabrics and you’ll also want to opt for Mulberry silk over any other type as it is one of the finest available in the world and more refined than other types of silk. It is also completely odourless and hypoallergenic as well as extremely durable but we will go into more detail about that in part two of this guide.
The final thing to look for is a charmeuse weave which stands out due to the fact that amongst other reasons, it makes for a a perfect insulator and has a smoother surface which means less friction. Also look for a thread count higher than 400 as it means the silk will be more tightly woven and therefore more durable and longer lasting.
