Silk Is Warm In Winter, Soft & Lightweight
Silk comforters provide the same warmth as down duvets. They are comfortable all year round due to their insulating properties.
To get the same warmth, we need only a silk comforter filled with a little fiber compared with cotton. The lighter weight helps with a variety of health issues such as blood circulation.
Silk Is Cool In Hot Weather
Silk is a natural insulator. Depending on the temperature, silk duvets either draw heat away from the body, or traps in the warmth. In the winter, the large fibres in silk duvets, reduce heat loss from the body, but in summer, the silk fleece sheds surplus heat by getting rid of moisture from your body – keeping you cool and comfortable. This also means that one silk duvet/quilt will satisfy two sleepers with different warmth needs.
Silk Is Breathable
Silk is breathable. It keeps you cool on hot days and through warm nights. Silk regulates body temperature, and preserves your body heat in the cold. Silk has impressive moisture wicking properties, keeping you dry and comfortable in any climate, year-round.
Silk Is Hypoallergenic
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic. Some of silk’s hypoallergenic properties include a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mold, in addition to many other allergens. Silk can be beneficial for your skin and hair.
Silk Reduces Chemical Exposure
Silk is produced from domesticated silk worms that are bred and raised in captivity. They have no predators to defend against and are pampered throughout their life, helping to produce a fine silk fiber with little chemical exposure. In contrast, many fabrics are produced from chemically intensive crops that require pesticides, herbicides and other chemical treatments before making it to your bed sheets.
Silk Is Good for Children
Their lightweight nature and breathable qualities ensure a regulated, even, sleep temperature with no added chemicals for a healthier sleeping environment.
