High quality silk bedding will last for many years. As long as a silk comforter is not abused, and by abused I mean subjected to harsh detergents and frequent laundering, it can easily last upwards of 20 years. Because natural silk originally repels dirt, odors, and pesky things like dust mites a silk comforter does not need frequent laundering. In fact, many silk experts recommend avoiding laundering of a silk linen unless it is absolutely necessary, such as in the case of spilling something on it. But, they also say a silk duvet should always have a duvet cover to protect it. The duvet cover should be laundered frequently and kept clean, as well as the silk sheets.

Why will high quality silk last for so long? Mulberry silk is the king of silks. It is made from the cocoons of a special type of silkworm that is pampered with a steady around the clock diet of chopped mulberry leaves and a temperature controlled environment free of strong odors and loud noises from the time they are hatched to the time they meet their demise when their cocoons are harvested for their silk. Great care is taken to not allow a moth to hatch from a silkworm after it has spun its cocoon. This is so the long single filament silk thread the silkworm has woven as its cocoon does not get broken.

When the silk filament thread from a single cocoon of a cultivated silkworm is unwound, it can be as long as 1,600 yards. The long threads in mulberry silk along with its natural tendency to adhere and bond with itself creates a fabric that is very durable and long lasting.

Whatever the profit and the advantage, silk bedding all could be the most perfect choice for your whole family.
