Benefits & Advantages of Silk Bedding
A naturally healthy option for you and your family
Simply put, silk bedding is healthier for us than down, feather or synthetic bedding. There are so many products on the market today that claim to be healthy and good for us - it's not always easy to separate the good from the bad. With silk it's a bit easier. Silk is a natural product, and being natural our bodies respond far better to silk than they do to synthetic products.
Silk is sympathetic to body needs and works in unison to help us get what we really want and need - contented, deep sleep.
Silk benefits for Asthma and Allergy Sufferers
Silk is repellent to dust mites and moths so it’s perfect for anyone who suffers from asthma or allergies. It also resists mildew and mould. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic so it can also be highly beneficial for those suffering from eczema or sensitive skin conditions.
Silk also has an amazing ability to help our skin reabsorb moisture through the natural occurring amino acids within silk. Absorbing moisture that has been lost during the day while sleeping will aid in rejuvenating the skin throughout the night. This is hugely beneficial to sufferers of dry skin.
Some people even claim that silk helps to ease aches and pains, and may aid blood circulation and digestion whilst sleeping. Of course there is no medical proof, but what is true is that thousands of people find that since they switched to silk bed linen they have slept better and longer than ever before.
The benefits of silk bedding to prevent over heating
Breathable and comfortable. The natural properties of silk wick away the moisture from body to keep you cool and comfortable all night long. This makes it an excellent choice for anyone who suffers from night sweats or hot flushes.
Silk is great in the winter too, especially if you want to feel supremely warm without being weighed down by heavy blankets. Silk duvets feel so light that it is almost impossible to believe they can effectively keep out the cold.
Sleeping under a silk-filled duvet is like sleeping under a light fluffy cloud. Even in the depths of winter it keeps you warm and snuggly. That’s partly because of the natural drape of silk that some people call the "hugging effect." which also helps to keep in body heat when it is cold.
Silk-filled duvets are long lasting
You can expect mulberry silk duvets easily as long as 15 - 20 years. That’s because all ElleSilk’s silk-filled duvets use Grade-A long fibre mulberry silk. The long threads in mulberry silk together with its natural tendency to bond to itself results in a fabric that is very durable and long lasting. When you buy well, you only need to buy once.
Benefits of ElleSilk's Silk Bed Linen
Silk sheets and silk pillowcases are far superior to even the finest Egyptian cotton sheets – here’s why.
It’s long been a secret of the beauty industry that silk pillowcases can make an amazing difference to the appearance of your skin. Wrinkles appear smoother and there are no creases or marks from the pillowcase.
Silk does not absorb face creams like cotton can. Instead it allows your night cream to work while you are asleep for maximum benefit and a more radiant, deeply moisturized complexion.
Wake up in the morning with hair that’s smooth as silk. The natural proteins present in silk together with its amazing smoothness mean that your hair doesn’t get matted or dried out when your head rests on silk overnight. That’s why top models always insist on silk pillowcases.
Silk pillowcases, sheets and duvet covers are easy to launder. They can be machine washed at 30°C on the gentle or hand washable cycle of your washing machine using a gentle, non-biological soap or a specialist silk detergent. Washed in this way will give you years of life, because our silk is always the finest, most durable, heavyweight silk.
