Many people prefer to choose silk bedding without center seam or two eccentric side seams. In other words, they like seamless silk bedding.
However, the standard silk thread width is 45 inches. Thus, most silk bedding will have a steam on it. The gap is either directly in the center or two off center side seams. Thus, people don’t need to lie down on a seam.
But, most people are still like silk bedding without any seams. And, before checking type of silk and the weight of the fabric, they will firstly check whether the silk bedding is seamless. This is a big mistake, for most of the seamless bedding on the market is not pure silk.
Here, if you want to purchase high quality, 100%, seamless bedding, it will cost you additional money than seamed silk bedding. And, some silk producers use specially made oversized looms to produce high-quality wide-width seamless silk.
For seamless bedding, what should we look for to select a high quality product?
- Look for mulberry silk bedding (also known as cultivated silk). Do not select Habotai silk, made of wild silk, for it has rougher matte finish and is lower quality than mulberry silk.
- Looking for sheet whose momme weight is above 16. Momme weight is a standard measure used to calculate the severity of the yarn. The higher the momme number, the greater the number of fabrics and the more threads used in the production of the fabric. Any silk whose momme weight of is under 16 cannot be used for a long time.
- You can look at the thread count after checking the type of silk and momme weight. For silk bedding, the thread count up to 400 or higher is a good choice for you.
In a word, when buying silk bed sheets, you should check the type of silk, the momme weight, and the thread count.
