What is Mulberry Silk?
What Is Momme And Thread Count?
|Weaves of Pure Silk||Typical Momme (mm) Range|
|Gauze||3 to 5 momme|
|Organza||4 to 6 momme|
|Chiffon||6 to 8 momme|
|Crepe de Chine||12 to 16 momme|
|Charmeuse||12 to 30 momme (typically used in a silk pillowcase or sheets)|
|Raw silk||35 to 40 momme (this is very heavy silk with texture)|
Thread count of 650+
Normally, the higher the momme weight, the more durable the weave, the more luxurious the fabric is, the more suitable it is for heavy-duty use, and the longer the shelf-life. But the heavier the silk, the more opaque it becomes. This can vary even between the same kind of silk. Therefore, it does not mean that you must always buy silk products with higher momme weight. For instance, it would be too heavy to put on 25mm silk sleepwear for the night.
What Is The Difference Between Silk, Satin and Cotton?
Cotton can often be stronger than silk in some cases, as silk does require extra due care and special attention to ensure it retains its durable properties to make it last. But silk has a natural thermometer that helps cool you down in the hotter months and then amping up the insulation when the temperatures drop. To get that effect from cotton you have to add or remove layers.
Silk is the same on both sides, while the manufacturing process leaves satin with a dull flat back. Satin is not breathable and we do not recommend sleeping on it.
If you wish to sleep like a goddess queen, then silk is the way to go. Your hair, skin, and inner natural beauty will thank you for it. You can never go wrong with sleeping on the worlds most luxurious fabric, silk.
How To Identify Real Silk
|Genuine silk||Fake silk|
|Flames||Burning genuine silk produces a smell very similar to that of burning human hair. The flame is close to invisible when burning the edge of the real silk fabric. Very soon after the flame source is taken away from the fabric, the silk will self-extinguish.||The ash from burning is black, crispy and turns to powder easily when grinded.|
|Ashes||Most fake silk are in fact petroleum based polyester products. When burned, these materials tend to combust rapidly in intense flames, and give a smell of burning plastic.||The ash of fake silk tend to be sticky, twisted, and difficult to break apart.|
