Shopping for silk comforter -Don’t Forget a Duvet Cover

The third character have to be considered is a  silk duvet cover. A silk filled comforter should always be encased in a removable duvet cover that can be laundered regularly. The covers are available in a vast array of materials from different weaves and grades of silk to ones made of organic cotton to a combination of materials. There are various kinds of duvet covers you could choose. Which to choose is up to you, but I recommend a silk cover for the silk comforter. Why skimp on the cover? But if the silk comforter you are buying is for a child, opt for a cotton cover because it is going to stand up to the wear and tear a child will subject it too better than a silk duvet cover will.

You could choose either according to your joy and love, but do remember, comfort is first!

Shopping for silk comforter Silk Fill Weight

Silk weight have to be taken as a reference for silk bedding shopping and also for silk comforters. Most silk comforter manufacturers have at least two weights of comforters available; one that is more suitable for summer use and a heavier one more suitable for cooler weather. In climates where the weather gets extremely cold it is suggested to use the summer weight and heavier weight comforter together to ensure you will be comfy and cozy no matter what the weather is. However, some  cot silk blanket manufacturers do offer an extra warm silk comforter for extremely cold weather use.

As a general rule, summer weight comforters are 4 -5 pounds; fall weight are 6-10 pounds; and anything 11 pounds or over is for winter weather. When you shop for your silk comforters, this should be considered exactly!

Shopping for silk comforter Filling

silk sheets

Silk comforter are progressively welcomed by more and more people, and what have to be regarded when you shop for it? Filling is one of the things need to be considered.

Buy the best filling you can afford. If your pocketbook can afford it, go for a silk comforter with 100 percent mulberry filling. It is the most durable and the highest quality because mulberry silk comes from silkworms raised in captivity under exacting conditions designed to produce the best silk possible. Comforters with Habutai and Tussah silk will be less expensive but the quality will not be quite as high either.

High quality silk bedding Safety and easy to care

About the safety, many of you may not understand what it means, that is mainly for the babies and children. As we all know, silk is a naturally fire retardant material which makes it a wonderful choice as silk sheets. It is a highly recommended bedding choice for your babies and children.

And another, most of you may not know how to care for your silk linen and silk duvets, because the silk bedding is made of special fibre and you don’t want to wash it as the common quilt. Ways for caring provided now, Although silk sheets should be hand washed for the first few times, most can then be machine washed on the gentle or hand washable cycle of your washing machine using a gentle soap and cool water. Then they should be air dried out of direct sunlight which won’t take long because silk dries fast.

Silk comforters are even easier to care for, so much so that they are nearly maintenance free. A silk comforter should always have a duvet cover on it to protect the comforter. Wash the cover regularly and air out the silk comforter periodically. The silk bedding should not need to be cleaned because it naturally repels mold, mildew, and dust mites.

Do not consider your silk sets as a arrogant one, it is as soft as you see and easy to care, comfortable to sleep on!
