In ancient China, owning anything made of silk was once a privilege only given to the very wealthy and powerful. Today, quality silk bedding no longer only for the rich and affluent. Quality silk bed sets is available to anyone willing to invest in it.
Although cost is the biggest barrier to people purchasing silk sheets, the fear of caring for them makes many people shy away from purchasing them too. Although they are not as easy to care for as percale sheets which can get thrown in the washer, tossed in the dryer and come out looking great no matter how much you abuse them, silk linen and duvets require gentler care but it’s really not that hard.
Most silk bedding sheets do best with hand washing for the first few times, and then being machine washed on the gentle or hand washable cycle using a gentle soap. They should be air dried out of direct sunlight although some people don’t have any problems with putting their silk sheets in the dryer and drying them on the air setting to remove the excess moisture and fluff them up.
Easy to choose and easy to care, why not start now?
