What is Mulberry Silk?
Simply the highest grade of silk made by mulberry silkworms. The mulberry silkworms are raised in controlled conditions of comfort and pampering. A lover of finest, their diet consists of only mulberry leaves. Their exclusive environment helps them spin out silk threads that are rounder, finer, longer, smoother and lighter than any other type of silk in the world.
Naturally hypoallergenic, mulberry silk resists mold, mildew and other allergens. It also regulates heat -- keeping your body cool when the temperature gets warm and warm when the temperature is cool. On top of that, the silky smooth textures of the mulberry silk pillowcases will help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, keep out-of-bed hair under control and reduce hair split ends. The low absorbency properties of mulberry silk also means that even as your skin relishes the smoothness of the silk, your moisturisers stay on your skin, keeping it hydrated through the night.
Silk is measured using momme(mm) weight. Momme weight is the weight of 100 yards of silk, 45 inches wide, in pounds. Most silk clothing items are around 8mm in weight and high quality silk bedding is at least 12mm in weight. Here at Plaited Petals, we use 100% pure and natural 19mm mulberry silk spun in charmeuse weave. This combination provides the best balance of luxury, durability and affordability. This is the worthy investment for your good night's rest!
