Silk Benefits: 1. Totally clean - all other types of bedding contain thousands or even millions of dust mites, mould, fungus and other microscopic life. These cannot live in silk. 2. Protects skin from further damage - a natural part of silk is the protein sericin which leaves a protective barrier on skin helping prevent further damage. 3. Nourishes and protects the hair - in the same way that the skin is nourished and protected the amino acids and the protein sericin nourish and protect your hair too.

Silk Fabric: 19 Momme; 22 Momme; 25 Momme. Mommes (mm), is a unit traditionally used to measure the quality of silk fabrics. One momme = 4.340 grams per square meter; 8 mommes is approximately 1 ounce per square yard or 35 grams per square meter.
For bedding, the higher the weight in momme, the better the silk bedding is. Sheets between 19-25 momme are considered ideal. Lower than 19 is not suitable for the production of quality silk bed linen.
Care Instruction: The best way to care for silk is simply avoid contact with chemicals, especially those with strong basic/acidic properties such as bleach, and avoid extreme temperatures, especially heat. Always wash your linen in lukewarm water at approximately 30 degree Celsius. If you use a washing machine, make sure to use a silk or delicate setting with minimal spin time.
