Down comforters and silk comforters are wonderfully comfortable and provide many healthy-sleep benefits you won’t find in a polyester comforter. Although these natural comforters share similar qualities, each one is unique in how it feels and performs.
Silk comforters and down comforters all have the ability to thermal regulate — retain and release body heat and moisture while you sleep — but each fiber does it a little differently. Like wool, silk comforters can breathe and are good insulator. It allows excess body heat and moisture to escape, while maintaining a dry, warm sleep environment. Some people find silk comforters’ thermal warmth runs slightly “hotter” than wool but not as warm as down. This is partly due to the silk comforters’ structure. It holds and releases body heat at a different rate than wool and down.
Luxury silk comforters are good at shedding excess body moisture so the fiber stays dry. Like wool, mulberry silk comforters naturally deter dust-mites, mold and mildew.
