Summer vs Winter Silk Bedding

Posted by La Blonde Gitane on December 1st, 2021

You might not believe this, but silk is perfect for all seasons. Hence, your mulberry silk pillowcases and sheets don\'t require to be changed out from summer to winter. Nevertheless, if you get especially hot or cold evenings, we suggest buying a separate silk duvet for summer and winter. You can prefer buying a silk comforter for winter for additional warmth.

Silk doesn\'t bunch up, which means it provides your entire body with even heat so that you and your body can better manage temperately.

You often wake up in the middle of the night sweating because of the heat of your bedding because most synthetic fibres and other common bedding materials like down stop air circulation. As a result, throughout the night, your body heat slowly builds up until it becomes unbearable. Unluckily, your sweat is also confined inside the bedding and can\'t evaporate. Therefore you end up with offensive wet sheets that are impossible to fall back to sleep in. This is especially problematic for women who are going through menopause; as their body cycles from hot to cool to hot again, the typical cotton sheets can\'t sustain the variations in heat, and they wake you up from discomfort.

Mulberry silk sheets queen allows a small but adequate amount of air to support your body regulate its temperature easily. For example, if there is extra heat in your room and your body perspires, then silk\'s breathable nature allows that moisture to escape, thus cooling your body, and hypoallergenic satin sheets can also be made by silk. And when you cool off, less moisture is generated, and silk helps your body retain the natural heat it produces. In addition, silk provides an equal amount of cooling during the night, so your body doesn\'t require continual regulation.

You can prefer rich synthetic bedding, but they also have the same effect. This is because you are only adding more chemicals into your environment, and silk is an entirely natural fabric with the same wicking effect.

Caring for Your Silk Bedding

If you are sleeping in silk, you are probably wondering – how often you should clean it. One of the best things regarding good-quality silk is that it naturally repels dirt, dust, oils, and extra dirt that your mulberry silk pillowcase will collect. As a result, silk bedding can be cleaned less frequently than traditional cotton or synthetic fibers. In general, we recommend the following:

Basic rules for washing silk:

  • Never use bleach or any bleaching agents. It can damage the fibres.

  • Never machine dry the silk because heat and the rolling motion can destroy the silk.

  • DO wash your silk with cold water.

  • Finally, DO air dry your silk.

  • DO lightly iron your silk on the relaxed setting on the inside of the fabric.

Some items need extra care, like silk blankets, duvets, and pillows.
