Before purchasing silk sheets, you had better know some basic types.
Wild silk and cultivated silk are the main two types of silk.
Wild silk comes from wild silkworms. Wild silk is not as durable or as strong as cultivated, for its filament threads are not long continuous threads like those from cultivated silk.
However, durability is a critical consideration when choosing silk.
Therefore, it is recommended to purchase cultivated silk since the thread strands are much longer. But, cultivated silk is more expensive than wild silk.
As we know, Mulberry leaves are the only leaves that cultivated silkworms. Thus, cultivated silk bedding is most often referred to as Mulberry Silk bedding. Compared with other silk like Tussah, Habotai silk, and wild silk, Mulberry silk the most expensive.
