Ways to Measure the Weight of Silk

silk sheetsWhen choosing silk bedding, many factors like colors, sizes and styles need to be considered. However, many people may forget the weight of silk.

Both the thread count and the momme weight are important elements when measuring the weight of silk. And the weight of silk sheets is much better to be measured by momme instead of thread per count. The higher the momme count is, the better the silk sheets are. Silk bedding sets with lower count mean that they are not durable, and 12-19 is the perfect momme weight for silk bedding.

According to some experts, cultivated silk bedding with a 400 thread count will be high quality and durable.
