Compared with these handmade silk filled comforters, silk comforters manufactured by machine can meet with the needs of the increasing number of customers quickly. Of course, with the improved techniques applied in the manufacturing process, mass produced silk items are becoming better and better.
Silk quilts manufactured by machine are almost always made using short fibre silk or a silk and polyester mix. Short fibre silk can be wild silk or any silk off-cuts which are then forced into a duvet casing. They can become airborne and an irritant to allergy sufferers, thus cannot be as effective as long fibre duvets as a heat regulator.
If it is possible, we suggest using handmade pure silk comforter instead of these produced by machine.
