Silk bedding is the fabric of choice due to many reasons. Gone are the days when silk had to be only dry-cleaned. Now with technological advances we are seeing easy to maintain silk fabrics, which in my opinion are the next best thing to sliced bread. Washable silk fabrics are a great choice for the silk sheets and mulberry silk pillowcases. However, do take the time to read the care instructions for your silk bedding. Silk filled comforters however, still need to be dry cleaned.
The ease of cleaning and durability will make you glad that you invested in such a great fabric.
