Sourced from the Bombyx mori silkworms that feed exclusively on mulberry tree leaves, mulberry silk stands out from other silk in the world, such as wild silk or habotai silk. Its long, pure white silk filaments are carefully woven into a fine silk fabric. This material is not only incredibly soft and luxurious but also gentle on the skin.

The Uniqueness of Mulberry Silk Fabric

What is Mulberry Silk?

Real silk is an incredibly unique and luxurious fabric, with numerous health benefits that set it apart from other materials. Among the various types of silk, mulberry silk stands out as the highest quality silk fibre available. But what is mulberry silk, and what makes it so special?

Mulberry silk thread is produced from the Bombyx mori moth, whose silkworms feed exclusively on white mulberry leaves from mulberry trees native to India and central China. This results in pure mulberry silk threads, which have a soft feel and a uniformly colored, lustrous appearance.

The finest 100% mulberry silk fabric is used to create high-quality silk bedding, such as mulberry silk pillowcases, duvet covers, and silk comforters.

One of the many benefits of mulberry silk is that it is a natural and hypoallergenic material. The long-fiber silk, derived from the silk cocoons of domesticated silkworms, has natural properties that resist dust mites and prevent allergic reactions for those with sensitive skin.

Additionally, mulberry silk bedding, like silk pillowcases and silk comforters, can enhance your beauty sleep experience by promoting a soft and gentle touch on your skin and hair.

OEKO-TEX certified mulberry silk goes through a rigorous production process that ensures no harmful chemicals or toxic substances are present in the silk production. 

This certification guarantees that the type of silk product you are using, such as a mulberry silk pillowcase or silk bedding, is safe and environmentally friendly.

Beauty Benefits of Silk

Cotton tends to dry out your skin and hair while silk does not. This is because silk's tight weave of long-fiber strands makes the fabric moisture-retaining. Silk is not moisture-absorbent like cotton. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and vibrant instead of dull and flaky.

Silk is also hypoallergenic and can prevent allergic reactions and ease skin conditions. Silk also contains albumen at the cellular level. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Long-term use results in skin that looks and feels much younger.

Your hair also benefits from the use of silk pillowcases and hair accessories. Unlike other fabrics that cause hair to become tangled and frizzy, silk's smooth surface allows hair to gently glide across it.

The Cooling Effect of Silk

The finest mulberry silk is also known for regulating your body temperature. This allows you to be more comfortable while you are sleeping. While everyone can benefit from this, it is especially beneficial for those suffering from hot flashes.

The Production Process: Spinning Raw Silk Into Silk Bedding

The production process of mulberry silk is a meticulous journey that begins with carefully feeding domesticated silkworms. Fed exclusively on the leaves of white mulberry trees, these silkworms spin the most luxurious natural silk known in the silk industry. This makes mulberry silk highly sought after.

The fibers are then delicately harvested and spun into silk threads of exceptional quality. Each thread is measured by weight to ensure consistency and superior texture. Throughout this process, strict protocols are followed to prevent any harmful substances from compromising the silk's purity and quality, ensuring that each strand upholds the highest standards of luxury and safety.

Comparing Silk to Other Bedding Fabrics

Mulberry silk stands in a class of its own when compared to other popular bedding materials like cotton, bamboo, and linen. Each of these materials has unique attributes, but none match mulberry silk in terms of luxury bedding and health benefits.

As a natural protein fiber, mulberry silk offers superior hypoallergenic properties, making it ideal for those with sensitive skin. It significantly reduces the risk of allergic reactions compared to some other materials, which can sometimes harbor allergens.

Furthermore, mulberry silk’s ability to regulate body temperature is unparalleled. It provides thermal balance throughout the year—cool in the summer and warm in the winter—unlike cotton and linen, which tend to absorb and retain moisture, and bamboo, which, although breathable, does not offer the same temperature regulation.

Furthermore, no material in existence beats the softness and comfort of mulberry silk. Not even other types of silk! If you're seeking a restful night's sleep with a touch of opulence, mulberry silk outshines other fabrics, delivering unmatched comfort and elegance.

Care Instructions for Mulberry Silk

Caring for mulberry silk, such as silk sheets and sleep masks, is key to maintaining their luxurious feel and extending their lifespan. Despite its delicate appearance, mulberry silk is highly durable when properly maintained.

To preserve the quality of the fibers, hand wash or use a gentle machine cycle with cold water and a mild detergent formulated for silks like Blissy Wash. Air drying away from direct sunlight is highly recommended to protect the fibers from damage. Regular gentle care ensures that your silk products will remain a staple of comfort and elegance in your home.
