There is something you should now when buying luxury comforter sets for your bedroom or as gift for your beloved.
Before you purchase a silk duvet with a silk casing you should ask what the momme of the silk casing is. Momme is the unit used to grade the quality of silk. A silk casing should have at least a momme rating of 19. Anything lower and you would encounter durability issues and herein causes the issue.

Although the producing process of the silk has spread abroad, China is still the only country who can produce the best silk bed sheets, therefore, many famous and romantic legend comes with the mysterious silk comforters Chinese.
At one point in history, the Chinese authorities were so adamant about protecting their secret about silk that anyone giving the secrets away or smuggling out silkworms or their cocoons was punished by being put to death. That may be why the secret of silk is said to be the most zealously guarded secret in history.
Legend has it that the secret of silk escaped China when a Chinese princess smuggled cocoons out of the country with her when she married a foreign prince by hiding them in her elaborate hairdo.
Another legend says the secret of silk production left China via the walking staffs of two monks who hid silkworms in the hollow shafts of them because of a request to do so by Emperor Justinian.
After all, these are just the stories, which for the nice skill kept by Chinese, and it also indicates that silk is from China, and therefore, best silk duvet king is from China, as well!
If you bleach a dark colored silk fabric such as a sheet that is burgundy it won’t turn pink. It will turn yellow. Bleach destroys the silk fabric and turns it an ugly yellow color that I don’t think any decorator will ever find trendy or fashionable.
Silk filled duvet is recommended for people who suffer from dust mite allergies. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic. The naturally occurring substance found in the cocoon the silkworm spins protects it from various natural threats is not harmed during the process of turning the filament into silk fabric. I don’t know exactly what those defensive properties are but dust mites, mold, and fungus don’t like it so they won’t invade your sleeping area.
Have you surprised with so many fun facts of your luxious satin bedding this is not just for fun, which is more indicates its difference with other common fabric, you will compared to know that silk is indeed a complicated and great for your to choose!
We have ever introduced some of the benefits that the luxious silk linen could bring you. Actually, that is just a small part. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase is said to cause a delay in a person getting wrinkles because of the essential amino acids in silk bedding.
The essential amino acids in silk bedding are why sleeping on silk is good for your hair. Does that mean if you sleep on silk bedding bad hair days will be a thing of the past?
Some experts say the best way to get dried blood out of silk is by using human saliva. The saliva breaks down the proteins in the blood thereby releasing them from the silk fabric.
Silk is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It’s a naturally self adjusting fabric which makes silk sheets as the superior quality fabric for you! Choosing such one, you will be proud of it.
After checking the momme weight, another element should be put forward is whether it is made with mulberry silk. As we all know, mulberry silk is indeed the silk bedding king of all.
Look for bedding made with mulberry silk (also called cultivated silk or bombyx silk). Avoid Habotai silk. It has a rougher matte finish and is made from wild silk which is of a lower quality than cultivated silk. Wild silk strands are not extremely long like cultivated silk strands are so they need to be spun together to create length creating a silk that is not as durable as the long single thread filaments harvested from cultivated silkworms.
So the next time you go shopping for silk bedding, don’t consider the silk sheets with seam is of lower quality, and it may not the best to reflect the class. Instead, the type of silk used, the momme weight should be the best indicators that will tell how high or how low the quality of the sheets are.
We have listed some of the common stains happen on your silk linen, and what if others? Deal with perspiration; you could use diluted ammonia (equal part of ammonia and water). Rinse well. And others like Oily or Greasy Stains try some liquid dishwashing soap letting it sit for few minutes. Rinse with water. There are still many for both of us to find out the best solution for it.
But not all silk is created alike. There are many different kinds which mean that a method that removes a stain on one type of silk may not work on another type of silk. Always test the method on an inconspicuous section of the sheets first, like on a corner of the fitted sheet that does not show when it is on the bed. All in all, keep your great silk duvets clean and there won’t be so much trouble for you!
Once you spill coffee or tea on your dress, you will be so disappointed at the dress and won’t wear it again, however, when the same thing happened on your expensive silk bedding sheets, with the different words, you won’t throw the silk sheets away, after all, they are so expensive. An efficient way to remove the spots away is to sponge with lukewarm water. Then apply glycerin (readily available online and at many natural products stores) and gently rub the fabric between your hands. Let it sit for half an hour; then rinse with warm water. You will find that the silk bed sets you cherish a lot has been a fresh one and more important, so dreamy to sleep on.
The last step is to dry it out. Let the sheets hand dry, if possible, but keep them out of direct sunlight and away from heating vents because that is just like putting them in a hot dryer. It is especially important to keep dark colored silk sheets out of the sunlight because it will visibly fade them in a very short amount of time. But, because finding a safe place to air dry large silk blankets, such as king size sheets, can be difficult, some people have had good luck drying their sheets using the lowest temperature setting on their dryer, the one that is just barely higher than “air dry.”
If you think the sheets need ironing, you can use a cool iron on them while they are still slightly damp, making sure to iron on the reverse side (the non-shiny side). But I will tell you I have never found it necessary to iron silk sheets. If they are gently washed and dried (translation: not twisted and wrung and beat up), they don’t need to be ironed.
One other note about washing luxurious silk bedding – do not put anything else in the washer with them. Wash them separately from your other laundry.
Briefly introduced the care method for your silk blanket, you may still puzzled about how to wash and clean them, here I would like to list the detail ways to care for your silk sheets. Well, let’s start!
Keep in mind that silk is a very strong natural fiber. To keep that fiber strong, avoid subjecting it to harsh detergents and soaps that will break those fibers down and strip it of its natural properties. Woolite is a mild detergent that many people use to successfully clean their silk linen but I have found a few manufacturers who do no recommend it. A commonly recommended soap is Charlie’s Liquid Laundry soap which can be purchased online. It is non-toxic and completely biodegradable soap.
When you first purchase silk sheets, wash them by hand for the first few washings. Doing this helps to preserve the sheen of the silk and soften the silk fibers.
