For centuries, those who've snuggled into a bed dressed with mulberry silk have appreciated and luxuriated in the comfort and protection of nature's highest quality silk.
Mulberry Silk comes from the cocoons of silkworms that feed only on Mulberry leaves. The cocoon's silk filaments are stretched into a flat web of silk floss which are stacked, then sealed inside the cotton fabric. The result is extremely lightweight despite the silk bedding's thickness. Mulberry silk's pearl-white hue reflects natural light while other silks, like Tussah and "wild silk" are a dull white caused by bleach and other chemicals.
Naturally Hypoallergenic And Anti-Bacterial
- Mulberry silk is clean and simple: a strand of fiber held together with the natural glue of the protein sericin.
- Sericin is a natural repellent that is inhospitable to bed bugs and dust mite, a major source of allergens.
- Mulberry silk is processed with little or no chemicals.
- Mulberry silk maintains its structure for years, unlike duck and goose down which can degrade and fall apart, creating tiny pieces that can cause irritations.
Repels Mold and Mildew
Our silk bedding is a mildew-proof fiber that eliminates moisture 1.5 time better than plain cotton.
Stronger Than Steel
Mulberry silk is stronger than steel wire with the same dimension. The more flexibility a silk has, the better the quality. Mulberry silk ans excellent elongations while inferior silk has very poor flexibility and elastic recovery.
Grade A mulberry silk is odorless. Many silk comforters made with Tussah and "wild silk" have an oily or rotten smell.
Comfortable Sleep During Menopause
