We have ever described many of the measurements to decide whether one silk linen or silk pillowcase is a high qualitied one, so many tips may you not remember all, just remember the following two, you won’t miss your perfect silk bedding sheets.
Although the type and quality of the silk is a major consideration, do not overlook the weight of it. High quality silk bedding sets, should have a momme weight of at least 12, but more normally between 16 -19, and in the case of duvet covers as high as the low 20’s. The larger the momme number, the heavier the silk, and the more silk that was used in that fabric’s construction. Any silk with a momme weight lower than 12 isn’t suitable for bedding, although there is a lot of it out there that does have a momme weight under 12. The lighter weight bedding won’t be as durable.
Don’t overlook thread count although check the momme weight first. That’s the more important consideration, but do opt for silk bedding with a thread count of 400 or higher to ensure you are getting the finest quality mulberry silk that will last for many years.
Master the two common methods, start your shopping for your silk bedding.
