Why Choosing Mulberry Silk for Your Bedding

mulberry silk beddingMulberry silk is the highest quality silk you can purchase. It is made from silkworms that are raised in captivity under exacting conditions. It is also the most expensive type of silk. What makes it so expensive and why is it superior to other types of silk? Let me start by telling how mulberry silk is made, a process the Chinese developed thousands of years ago and have perfected, making them the world’s experts in producing the finest silk bedding.

If you want the most luxurious, most durable, and finest silk bedding, look for silk sheets made with 100 percent mulberry silk and for silk comforters made with 100 percent mulberry silk floss. A few other features of mulberry silk include it being 100 percent hypoallergenic and also being odorless and not needing any “airing out” before use like some of the lower quality wild silks.

Don’t overlook thread count although check the momme weight first. That’s the more important consideration, but do opt for mulberry 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.
