There are so many varieties of silk duvet available today; it’s not always easy to decide which one to buy.
Knowing what is in your silk duvet is essential if you want a duvet that will perform as it should. From the outset let’s be clear. Long-fibre mulberry silk is what you should be looking for in your duvet. Most other forms of silk will just not be as good as long-fibre mulberry silk. Long-fibre mulberry silk does however come with a caveat. It’s expensive, but then you get what you pay for. Cheap silk duvets are almost always filled with a mix of polyester and silk, or chopped strand silk which is essentially off cuts of silk that can’t be used for anything else. Any good silk duvet will have a small inspection zip where one can inspect the quality of silk inside the duvet. If your duvet doesn’t have an inspection zip you need to be asking the question… “What’s inside my duvet?”
