Eight hours a night, 365 days a year; that is a total of 2,920 hours a year that you spend in your bed. Deciding on full size silk sheets that is right for you and the climate you live in, makes those hours you spend in your bed more comfortable.
Full size silk sheets have a smooth, slick feel to them. Full size silk sheets hold cool air well for warmer climates, helping you stay cooler as you sleep. Unlike Egyptian cotton sheets, full size silk sheets are measured in momme weight, not by thread count. When browsing, look for sheets with a momme weight between 16 and 19; this ensures they are strong and durable. Full size silk sheets are ideal for cold climates because the material traps warmth. These full size silk sheets feel smooth and luxurious, but they are expensive and must be dry-cleaned. Avoid satin-style sheets made of polyester; they feel scratchy against the skin.
Think about the most comfortable bed you’ve ever slept in, and what comes to mind? If it’s the 100% mulberry full size silk sheets, you’re in good company.
