Surely the most luxurious way to sleep, silk sheets have an undeniably indulgent appeal. Cocoons of silk are spun by silkworms fed on mulberry leaves, this is collected, reeled and spun into the fibres that make up our luxurious silk bed linen.
Silk feels incredibly smooth and sensuous; the fluid, supple nature of silk feels beautifully light against your body resulting in a truly luxurious night's sleep.
But Silk is about more than just a luxury feel - it has very practical benefits as well. As with other natural fibres, silk is breathable and wicks moisture away from your skin to help keep you cool as you sleep. Silk is also antibacterial, and naturally repels dust-mites and other bacteria, making it an excellent choice for allergy sufferers. It's also renowned for its beauty benefits; the naturally occurring proteins and oils help care for skin, while the smoothness of the fabric means very little friction to pull at the skin and hair while you sleep.
Silk is surprisingly strong - much more hard wearing than many people would believe it to be, and at 17momme, our silk bed linen will give you many indulgent nights to come.
We recommend you hand wash your silk bed linen, but know this isn't always practical, so your washing machine's gentle hand wash cycle with a specialist silk detergent, will give your bed linen the care it needs. Always air- or line-dry your silk, avoiding direct sunlight. Your silk bed linen will look best if you iron it - use the silk setting to protect your beautiful new bed linen.
